1925 Renault Model 45 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Chassis Num: 139416
|Sold for $374,000 at 2010 Gooding & Company.|
The early history of this example is not fully known. The earliest history begins with Robert Morgan of Wyckoff, New Jersey. Later, the Model 45 had entered the collection of Pacific Auto Rentals, a company that supplied Hollywood studios with cars for films. At least one other Model 45 was known to reside in the collection of Pacific Auto Rentals.
By the late 1970s or early 1980s, the car was in the care of Laguine of Pasadena, California. In January of 1984, the car was sold to J.B. Nethercutt. Mr. Nethercutt immediately treated the car to a restoration and then used on several tours. During the past twenty-five years, the car has been a museum piece and has been used sparingly. The static lifestyle has caused its nine-liter engine to freeze.
The open coachwork is believed to have been done by the Parisian firm Manessius. Several Renaults received their coachwork, as were other makes such as Rolls-Royce and Delage.
The car currently rides on wooden artillery wheels and center-locking hubs. There are dual-side mount spares, Phare Besnard headlamps, Marchal taillamps, tubular bumpers and four-wheel brakes. Inside, there is an intricately-detailed dashboard, and complete with Jaeger and Nivex instruments. The rear compartment features a wood-trimmed divider with jump seats.
In 2010, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Pebble Beach Auction presented by Gooding & Company. The car was estimated to sell for $200,000 - $300,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $374,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
