Footnotes

Founded by Louis Renault and his brothers Marcel and Fernand in 1898, the company that would become France’s biggest automobile manufacturer started humbly enough, with a solitary 1¾hp De Dion-engined prototype. By 1904 Renault was building its own engines - large-capacity fours at first, followed by the AX twin - and in 1908 introduced its first six-cylinder model despite Louis Renault’s aversion to such complication. Renault exported many luxury chassis to the USA in the 20th Century’s early years, opening a showroom on New York's Fifth Avenue in 1909.
This particular model is built on the Type CC chassis and has a 3,560cc four-cylinder engine, cone clutch and four-speed gearbox. The car was exported new in chassis form to the USA where it was fitted with the formal, town car, Salamanca body by Brewster & Company that it retains to this day. Proudly described as ‘Carriage Builders to American Gentlemen’, Brewster was the oldest and finest coachbuilder in the United States. Brewster bodywork was noted for its immaculate finish and William Brewster was uncompromising in his pursuit of perfection: when his firm was taken over by Rolls-Royce of America in 1925, he resigned rather than condone the new regime’s use of what he regarded as mass production techniques in the building of luxury automobiles.
This car’s history is unknown prior to its purchase by the current owner from a private collection in Holland. The body was repainted and the top re-covered in 1997/98, and the car is presented today in good all round condition with no known faults. Unlike the overly tall formal coachwork fitted to many Edwardian cars, this one’s body is short enough to fit into a normal garage.
While in the vendor’s care ‘HSJ 589’ it has taken part in many VCC and Renault Frères events in both the UK and France, including the 100th Anniversary Rally to Paris. Reported as a lusty performer, the car is offered from the extensive private collection of a knowledgeable enthusiast and comes with VCC dating certificate, current road fund licence, MoT to July 2009 and Swansea V5. A windscreen and starter motor are the only listed deviations from factory specification. Featuring the marque’s trademark coal-scuttle bonnet and dashboard radiator, this is a fine Edwardian car that would enhance any collection and grace any major concours.

Pas assez mure à mon goût, mais une patine acceptable. Okay
