F40 Motorsports is proud to offer this 1961 Renault 4CV Jolly Beach Car
In late 1946, Renault of France announced an all-new automobile with a rear-mounted 760cc four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission. It was small, inexpensive and very frugal. It also put tens of thousands of the French on wheels. Although initial prototypes had just two doors, when production commenced, four-doors were the norm. Though very economical to buy and run, that economy-up to 50mpg--had a price in terms of performance. Power output of the overhead-valve four was a meager 19 horsepower and torque was a paltry 32.6 pound-feet.
By 1961, the final year of 4CV production, displacement had long been 747cc and power had recently been boosted to 28hp thanks to higher compression. The tiny car would also reach a top speed of 66 mph, which was no small feat for such a tiny power unit.
This 4CV can easily be mistaken for a Fiat 500 or 600 thanks to its Jolly-style run-about body.
