The family of Renault enthusiasts in the world is huge. Fans everywhere, who make an important contribution to Renault's past by honoring the classics. The Renault 4 entered the market in the 60s. It was a cheap, simple, but very complete car. It was basically a two in one car, fold the back seat and you have a station wagon. And especially the Renault R4 F6 Order version became a popular car for the small entrepreneur, even the roadside assistance was equipped with it.

This Renault R4 F6 Order, an original service car, has served for 9,5 years at the Kroegman garage, which after his working life was sold on December 2, 1993 to a private individual who fortunately left the typical Renault advertising.
The owner of the service car decided to move to the South of France in 2006 and took the Renault with him. The MOT expired in 2007 with the license plate suspended, but that did not deter the owner from using the car for short local trips in the French countryside. He did, however, receive the necessary technical attention, as evidenced by invoices with the car for brake repair and replacement of the fluids.
Because the Renault R4 F6 Order has remained driving, everything functions properly, the engine runs smoothly and smoothly. Of course there are some spots and blisters, but nothing disturbing. The insidious rust has hit the sills in two places, but because they are not load-bearing, repair - with insertion of plates - is very well possible.
Back to the Netherlands
How did this fun, unique Renault R4 F6 Order return to the Netherlands? Actually a special story. Maarten Jan is a Citrofile in heart and soul who, during his holiday in the South of France, rummaged through the car sites and found an advertisement for this Renault. That immediately gave him a lump in the throat. Especially because the place where this service car was parked was only 5 minutes from the campsite where he stayed. Real beauty must not perish, which is why Maarten Jan bought the Renault 4 to pick it up with his father a few months later, the rescue was successful.
Now he is waiting in the shed for a new owner, who also wants to keep the classic hobby alive and ensures a 'life extension' of this special 'four'.
