  • DESCRIPTION

    With regret, the time has come to sell my 2CV which has been part of the TW Classics collection for the last couple of years. It really has been a joy to own, but sadly a change of circumstance is forcing me to sell.

     

    This 2CV benefited from restoration works in 2012 by 2CV City including new galvanised chassis, floorpan, wheels, tyres and brakes. The car has only covered approximately 2,000 miles since the rebuild.

     

    With only 4 previous owners the car has covered a very low mileage, which currently stands at 26,100; this is believed to be genuine judging by the condition car and the mechanicals.

     

    MOT valid until February 2018.


    EXTERIOR
    Finished in the best colour for a 2CV, Sunrise Red, the paintwork is in excellent condition; the only negatives being that upon close inspection one or two very small bubbles are evident on the lower front wings and on the bonnet hinge. The hood was replaced during restoration works and is in as new condition. The underside of the car is in good condition thanks to the new floorpan and no significant corrosion is present.

    INTERIOR
    The classic minimalist interior is in excellent condition with no damage to the dash, plastic trim or door cards. The seats have been reupholstered and consequently look great with no rips or tears. The sparse amount of electrical items all work as they should.

    ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
    The 602cc flat 2 might not be the epitome of performance, but every time you drive a 2CV it's an entertaining event and the unique character and sound of the engine has an important role to play in the fun. Just the fact that the strength of wind and direction can influence your progress is all part of the experience! The ignition has been upgraded to electronic, the engine bay is clean and all the mechanics are in fine order with all oils replaced last year having only covered approximately 500 miles since. The gearbox operates with great precision and the clutch feels like new.

    WHEELS, TYRES, SUSPENSION & BRAKES
    The car has brand new wheels and Toyo tyres that were installed during the rebuild, both in excellent condition. All braking components work perfectly and the fluid was replaced last year. The car obliviously has the long travel and soft ride suspension characteristics famous to the 2CV suspension which is good working order.

     

    Viewing and test drives are welcome and highly recommended.

  • DESCRIPTION

    With regret, the time has come to sell my A610 which has been part of the TW Classics collection for the last couple of years. It really has been a joy to own, but sadly a house move is forcing me to sell and this now represents an incredibly rare opportunity to own one of 68 RHD A610s ever produced.

     

    In case you didn't already know A610's are renowned for chassis rot thanks to Renault's blasé approach to rust proofing. In July 2016 this car had the full treatment from Renault Alpine Tuning Services (RATS) which, in addition to the rot busting, included full refurbishment / renewal of running gear, suspension components (including Spax coilovers), new brakes, installation of a new clutch assembly and new handbrake cables. Photos of the restoration works can provided upon request.

     

    HISTORY
    Of the 68 RHD A610s this car was the 57th produced and registered in August 1994. It has had 3 owners (including myself), the first of which owned the car from new until 2005. He maintained the car at the recommended intervals with a Renault specialist up until 70,000 miles which is backed up in the service records. The second owner, an Alpine enthusiast, maintained and serviced the car himself until I purchased the car in 2015. Within the history file there is a huge stack of invoices, a fully stamped service book, original owners manuals, every tax disc dating back to 1995 and all MOT certificates from1998. The car has now covered 94,000 miles.


    EXTERIOR
    Finished in Montana Red, the A610 paintwork is in superb condition; the only negative is one or two very small bubbles to the paintwork which are evident on the passenger door (only on close inspection). The black trim is in good condition and has not suffered from any sun damage. All in all, I wouldn't want to the say the paint is 'mint', but it's very close to being so. The underside of the car is very tidy thanks to the restoration works that took place last year.

    INTERIOR
    The interior is in excellent condition with no damage to the headlining, dash or plastic trim and the seats have no rips or tears. Believe it or not, all electrics work as they should and the air conditioning is blowing ice cold, a rarity for A610s! However, the LCD display in the dash would ideally need replacing as the illumination is quite faint. I've happily lived with this during my ownership.

    ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
    The turbocharged 2975cc V6 provides ample torque for smooth acceleration from low engine speeds, but when you want that extra urge the Garrett turbo cuts in and gives you the shove to make seriously rapid progress. The engine bay is clean and all the mechanics are in fine order. All fluids were replaced last year and the car has covered approximately 1,000 miles since. The gearbox operates with great precision and the clutch is brand new.

    WHEELS, TYRES, SUSPENSION & BRAKES
    The RATS restoration works involved a full overhaul of the suspension components with new balljoints, bushes, and bearings in addition to an adjustable Spax coilover kit. The car subsequently received a full geometry calibration at Blackboots in Chesham who are the best in the business, as a result the car rides and handles probably better than it did when it left the factory in Dieppe. All braking components have been renewed and the ABS module has been replaced. The wheels are in fine order with only one small scuff evident to the offside rear. All tyres have plenty of tread remaining.

     

    Viewing and test drives are welcome and highly recommended.
