With our colleagues in Spain after a trouble free 80km trip from its owners house is this very solid and ” honest” 1970 Renault 12. No its not a mint concourse car, this is a car that has been in everyday use most of its life, in fact it still has a current Spanish certificate of road worthiness, an ITV. What it is is a solid car that is mechanically strong and bears the marks of being nearly 50 years old on its body.
UPDATE: Now arrived with us and having spent the best part of a hot summers day, mooching around the country roads round here, it has to be said that this great first year of production R12 drives excellently, put a smile on my face anyway. Yes as stated previously there are some cosmetic issues, some bubbling and a small amount of grot below the paint here and there, but structurally very sound and do not forget this car has not been left standing but has done its job of providing transport for its Spasnish owners for the last 49 years!. Interior is very good with everything working, engine, gearbox, clutch, brakes etc etc all great. You really could just jump in and use as an every day car and “show” at the weekends. Fully UK registered on its correct, age related plate.
