Trouvé sur le Net. Une viva Grand sport aux USA avec des mega rétroviseurs. Quelqu'un la connaît ?

Je crois qu'il va falloir créer un sujet spécifique dans les 8 cylindres. Après réflexion, je penche pour une ABM7 coach décapotable de 1937, passablement modifiée.

8 cylindres?? Je n'y crois pas. Qu'est ce qui vous le fait dire?
Peut-être une 8 cylindres maintenant, une 8 cylindres Ford!

Je ne connais pas la voiture, mais je sais peut-être qui est le propriétaire Wink

19CAB, pourrais-tu nous dire où tu as trouvé ce cliché ?

Trouvé sur un forum US de voitures anciennes. Ils parlent d'une Nerva Grand sport.


Je pense que le mieux pour en savoir plus est que quelqu'un qui se débrouille bien en anglais s'inscrive sur le dit Forum (free registeration) et interroge celui qui a posté les photos. En plus, il semble mal connaître cette auto qui diffère de ce qu'il voit habituellement. Il ne devrait pas être contre quelques infos.

I am the person who posted the pics of the 1937 Renault Grand Sport at the AACA forum. My name is Greg Wells and I live in Norcross, GA, USA. Besides operating an active slot car forum, I am also the associate editor of the Jaguar Journal for the Jaguar Clubs of North America.


A good friend in the US Midwest, knowing my long experience in the old car hobby, sent me those pics to ask if I could help identify the vehicle. And my online research indicated it has to be a 1937 Grand Sport ABM-7.


Unfortunately, I do not have any further info at this time, only the rather poor pictures I posted plus one more I will post here now.



Based on the hood side trim, I believe this car is (or was) an eight-cylinder Nerva GS.


What I am unclear on is the exact body style. The car is obviously an open car, not a closed car. And it looks to be a four-passenger car, with what seems to be a fold-down windshield. I have been unable to find via search any images of an open Grand Sport four-passenger car with a fold-down windshield.


Clearly the car has undergone some modifications (the Ford Thunderbird seats, for example). And that trunk looks very suspicious to me. With the limited info available to me, I cannot determine whether this is largely an original car or whether it has been assembled from several cars.


The vehicle is located somewhere in the middle of the US but I do not know where. Gravedigger, if you have more knowledge of this specific car, I would be pleased to hear it!


If this is indeed a Nerva Grand Sport, can anyone confirm how many examples of this model were produced? I am seeing some very low figures online...


Thank all in advance for any knowledge you can share with me.

Thank you, 1933 PGB!


Still hard to be absolutely certain whether the car is a six-cylinder or an eight-cylinder from the poor pictures.


But your info shows the difference in wheelbase, which will help once the car can be seen again and measured.

On attend d'en savoir plus sur les mesures de la voiture.
Pour les chiffres de production demandés, voir un excellent ouvrage... C'est clair, net et précis, signé Jean Guittard.

Hello, Greg,

Nice to have you with us, at least for a while Okay

On the ROCONA forum, you can find this post (5 years old). Probably this is our car Wink



I understood the grandson is living in Atlanta Razz

And if you want to become a specialist, please have a look at these Idea

Thank you for the reply and the nice welcome, Gravedigger.


While I am in Atlanta, my friend who sent me the pictures is in the upper Midwest, near one of the US Great Lakes. He has not told me where the car is located but has indicated it not too far from him. Also, it is owned by someone he knows, not a relative, who has a number of collector cars. The only Atlanta connection is me... and I have not seen the car, only the four pics I have posted in the forums.


I cannot read French, but use a translation plug-in for my web browser. I also have two very fluent go-to guys if I really get in a bind, a close friend who was raised in Paris (and who incidentally own two notable vintage Indy cars: the 1961 Cooper T54 that Brabham drove in 1961 and a 1972 Eagle turbo-Offy) and a long-time member of my hobby forum who lives in Paris and works as a translator. They're both always willing to assist me.


And thanks for the links.

Thank you Gregg for your prompt answers.


Even if the Grand Sport you post about is obviously not full stock, it remains an interesting car and I ( we ?)  am (are) impatient to learn more concerning its history  Bravo




Pour les chiffres de production des coach ABM7 (si tant est que ce soit le cas), un indice figure dans le forum.... Mr. Green

I, too, am most anxious to learn more about this car. Rare cars have always been interesting to me and once I started to help my friend determine what was in the pictures he sent me, I realized potentially how special this vehicle could be. 


Unfortunately, the car owner is one of those that has to be very gently persuaded just to allow a visit to examine it. Anyone who has been messing with old cars for any length of time will know the challenges that often occur with elderly owners. 


So, to use an idiom: don't hold your breath but be assured that this car is definitely being investigated!
