Am si eu unu [attachmentid=1627513223]
fain. Nu ii faci un jurnal de bord?
ta in februarie 1965 exportata in anglia. Are volan pe dreapta. A avut 2 proprietari, eu sunt al 3-lea. masina are 41600 de mile. am cumparat-o in ianuarie anul asta. In afara de pompa de benzina totul a fost original pe ea. I-am recromat barile pt ca erau vopsite si i-am pus pompa originala. Merge impecabil, problema cea mai mare este cind ma plimb cu ea ma aplauda lumea si ma simt cam nasol.
Mai am si alte "babe" toate din gama renault si 2 mai noute ...laguna din spate si un clio bicorp.

Renault Floride

Launched in1959, the Floride was the first car truly made for pleasure. With its sophisticated elegant looks, this attractive convertible had immediate appeal. The Floride was also the first Renault to feature bodywork designed by Italy's Pietro Frua.
A symbol of its times
At the end of the 1950s, France was prosperous and enjoying life once more. The Floride, based on the Dauphine cabriolet, embodied this gay, carefree era.

Brigitte Bardot advertised the Floride, and Saint-Tropez was besotted with it… The Floride became indissociable from the Riviera and its pleasures. No matter that it was larger and with a smaller rear compartment than the Dauphine. This good-looking convertible was a hit with drivers everywhere.

Prize-winning elegance

In 1959, elegance was embodied by flowing lines, bright colors, and American cigarettes. Pietro Frua therefore decided to extend the Dauphine at front and rear, to create the Floride.

Particular attention was paid to the bodywork. A Floride badge decorated the front wing. A long side molding emphasized the waist line. "White sidewall" tires, an ultimate touch of sophistication, were available as an option, and the first models could be recognized by the air intakes on the rear wheel arches.

The Floride's colors were part of its style and extravagance. In shimmering or pastel shades, red, light yellow or pale blue, they expressed summer days and joy of living. It's no surprise that all the stars of the time wanted to be seen at the wheel of a Floride!

Three versions... and still gorgeous

Between 1959 and 1966, the Floride was launched in three versions: coupé, cabriolet and convertible (cabriolet with a hard top). Continuous improvements were made to the vehicles. The last models were given a new name: the Caravelle.

The original Floride was fitted with an 845 cc engine. From 1962, the new Floride S gained a more powerful 956 cc unit. The Caravelle 110, which rolled off the assembly lines in 1964, boasted a 1,108 cc 6CV engine for powerful acceleration.

At the same time, the engineers reviewed the suspension ("aerostable" system) and equipped the Floride with four disc brakes. It was the first French car to boast this feature.

The body design also changed. The coupé version gained a longer roof and a straighter rear window, thus increasing interior space. This made it possible to accommodate two adults in comfort at the rear. This modification to the bodywork was a major success, since it did not spoil the balance of the original design!

A commercial success
The Floride was also a remarkable commercial success. For some versions, sales were equal to 10% of those for the popular and less luxurious Dauphine – an excellent score. But the success of the Floride is measured first and foremost in drivers' memories! Even today, at motor shows, it is not unusual to hear "What a great-looking car it was!".

Este inscrisa in retromobil. Masina a fost vopsita de englez in 89, eu i-am recromat barile si mici alte ratusuri (pompa de benzina originala, refacut instalatia de incalzire) pot sa spun ca este originala dintr-un cap in altul.
Superba piesa de colectie! Cu o asemenea bijuterie chiar meriti aplauze! aplauze.gif
poti sa ne spui cam cu cat ai cumparat-o? si cam cat ar fi valoarea ei de acuma? smile.gif

frumoasa bijuteria...
acum valoarea unei masini similare este intre 10-15.000 e. se gasesc si mai ieftine intr-o stare mai putin buna.
