I won't ask for the year, it changed seldom but we owned one when my Dad was stationed in France. He couldn't ship it back because it didn't meet NSTB standards

Renault Dauphine. They were built between 1965-1967. They were NOT good cars!! But I would buy one.

Built for US market 65-67 but that one is a 1960 like ours. It had some weird features like a plastic line in the glovebox for ether, and a handcrank to start the engine if the battery was dead. It'* first model was in 1956 as the replacement for the 4CV.

I mad a mistake. They were made from 1956-1967!

My uncle had a 1961. It had a manual trans, but no clutch pedal!

These actually came out for several years. Some were one color and looked pretty decent. Especially the black. Then a few were vinyl woodies that took away a good deal of the awesomeness of size, weight, steel, power and glass they possessed. There was a drab green version of this woodie as well.

I had a 68 Buick Sport Wagon, with the glass roof panels.
It had the Buick 340 V8 with the ST400 trans.

Not a Buick, a bit newer than '68, and larger engine than a 340. Only the ******Edition had the hood scoops with matching paint Rallye wheels.
