La Régie’s airs and graces

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

I am piqued to write re­gard­ing the small ar­ti­cle on the Re­nault 4L in An­drew Roberts’ The Way We Were, 31 May, 2017.

The R4L never had an air-cooled en­gine at any point dur­ing its pro­duc­tion run – I be­lieve it was con­sid­ered dur­ing the de­sign to counter the sales chal­lenge posed by the Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle and Citroën A Se­ries, but Re­nault chose to use the ex­ist­ing 4CV en­gine.

No grease points, for sure, and much was made of this. I would be very jeal­ous of this fea­ture – my Hum­ber Hawk Se­ries IV has 21 grease nip­ples on the front sus­pen­sion alone! John Mel­lor, Child Oke­ford, Dorset
