Renault 4 GTL – 1989

The 4L was Renault’s answer to the overwhelming success of the 2CV from archrival Citroën.
Renault had understood the qualities and limitations of the sympathetic 2CV, which in the early years was mainly suitable for driving on rural roads at (very) low speeds.
The further development of the French road network required vehicles capable of driving longer distances at higher speeds.
Renault understood this and combined the simplicity and spacious interior of the 2CV with a reliable four-cylinder engine with more power.
Just like its archrival, the R4 is known for being extremely solid and reliable, as witnessed by the R4 rallies through the desert, with almost standard R4s. Renault produced no less than eight million units of it’s R4, in many variants and spread over production all over the globe.

The car we offer is a 1989 GTL version, equipped with the original 956cc engine and four gears, operated with the typical ‘off the dashboard’ stick shifter.
The car is very original and in excellent condition.The rust-free body has been resprayed a few years ago, the interior is original and in very good condition.

The car is well cared for, it is mechanically sound, so the next owner can fully enjoy being at the wheel of this sympathetic and solid Frenchman.
It comes with a fresh technical control (MoT) and can take the road for any distance!
