    Thumbs up My 1957 Renaukt 4CV

    I finished the restoration, 2 years it took me but it turned out great. You can see before and after pictures. I converted to a 12 volt system with a alternator, I changed the 745cc to a 850cc with a new sleeve piston kit from Jacques, I changed to a 32mm Solex carb from the std. 22mm and a larger exhaust pipe 1 1/2"Dia. for more power.

    Did Jacques mention to you doing a write up for the newsletter. It would be great to let all the members see your beautiful car.
    Thanks

    Hello, I just bought a 4cv and I have not been able to figure out what is the function of the small pedal which is above left from the 3 main pedals. We can see it on your picture number 142. Thanks in advance

    That is the High beam switch, it is a push botton switch, which you step on with your left foot to turn on the High BEAM.

    Yes, I did everything myself except for the new headliner.

    First off congrats on a top notch restoration! I wanted to ask you where you found the engine parts. I have a 59 Renault 4CV that is beyond saving, but I refuse to get rid of the engine and transmission. Any help you could provide would be most appreciated.

    Thank You,
    Gene Patton
