1988 Renault 5

No Reserve

Tidy three-owner car from 27 year ownership (deceased estate) showing just 57,000 miles - wonderfully simple

Supplied new by Abergavenny Motor Company Renault dealers in November 1988, this late model ‘Campus’ edition of the super little R5 comes to us from a deceased estate, having been with its lady owner for the last 27 years. It was carefully dry-stored between 2013 and 2021 (as a result of the lady ceasing driving) following which it has been pulled out and lightly recommissioned.

The recommission included fitment of a new battery, fresh fuel, a set of points, a new exhaust and its first MOT since 2013 at which time it had covered just 56,726 miles and now shows just 57,071 miles.

The car is unmolested, and looking to have not seen paint or a welder in its life (don’t hold us to that) with the interior beautifully simple with great all-round visibility and that minimalist French-chic feel.

The peppy 1,108cc engine sprang straight to life, feeling eager, the car moving around with ease, power going to the front wheels via four-speed manual transmission. An entirely lovable ‘no frills’ approach to motoring!

The history file includes a pair of old style V5 registration documents and current Mot along with note about the car from the vendor assisting the family with the sale.

On offer at No Reserve this plucky little car will no doubt excite rather a few bidding fingers!
