This late 'NN2' 6CV sports original Torpedo coachwork and is presented in older restored condition. Imported from France in 1984, (explaining the C suffix registration number) the Renault has been in the family's personal Collection, and has been maintained by their garage, George Rhodes & Sons Limited who have traded in the family's hometown since 1925. An ideal VSCC touring car, the Renault features 4 seater tourer coachwork with a good hood. There is a large history file with the car, in addition to a V5C registration document.
