1971 Renault R-10 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Sedan
Chassis Num: 0589009
 
In 1898, the Societe Renault Freres Company was founded by Louis Renault and his brothers Marcel and Fernaud. Louis had the engineering talents, while the other two brothers provided the support necessary in running a business. Their first vehicle was the 'Voiturette', and was a sign of things to come. During the early years, Renault was very active in motor racing while greatly enhanced their popularity. As the years progressed, their reputation became better known for building cars for the masses.

In 1956, the R8 was replaced by the R10. In comparison, the R10 was slightly longer which provided more interior and luggage room. The designs were similar, with one of the more noticeable features being the round headlamps in the front. These were later replaced with the now familiar squared off design.

The R10's engine was given more power in 1970, now displacing 1289cc and producing 56 horsepower. The French production of the R10 ceased in 1971, though production continued at their Spain facility until 1973. The R10 was one of the last rear-wheel drive production Renault cars in the US, as after 1971, they were switched to front-wheel drive.

This example is a well preserved Renault 10 Sedan. It is painted in mint green with a black vinyl interior. There are four-wheel single piston disc brakes, independent suspension, and four-speed manual full synchromesh transmission.

In 2008, this saloon was offered for sale at the Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by Worldwide Auctioneers. It had an estimated value of $14,000 - $18,000. As the gavel fell for the third and final time, bidding had failed to satisfy the reserve. The lot was left unsold.

The Renault 10 was produced from 1965 through 1971 and was positioned between the 8 and 12 models. It had a very similar design to the Renault 8 but slightly longer offering extra interior room to the passengers and additional room for luggage. The double overhead cam, four-cylinder engine offered 48 horsepower; the displacement was enlarged to 1289cc for 1970 and was rated at 56 bhp.

It was a well-priced, mass produced car that sold well and popular with many. It was originally priced at $1780 when it went on sale in the US, later increasing to $1780 before peaking at around $1850.
