TOPIC: information wanted about the car transporter

information wanted about the car transporter 1 year, 10 months ago #1

<p>Does anyone know which tractor is in front of the transporter? A collector asked me to build one, but there is hardly any information available about the combination.</p>
<p>My guess is that the tractor is a Saviem or Berliet, but it could also be a DAF, considering the photo is taken in The Netherlands in the early sixtes</p>

As it is carrying out work for Renault, it should be a Saviem (or Berliet variation). DAF tend to have bigger curved windscreens. This looks fairly flat with no curved end panels.

Thanks guys, I think Jan Willem is right. A Renault pulling Renaults would look appropriate to met. I browsed the net for some pictures and it does look very similar

I see its confirmed to be a Renault.
Trailer will be trickier if wanting to build one.
Please let us know about the project, as am a car transporter collector.

<p>yeah, just read the side banner on the trailer Dit Is De Nieuwe Renault 4L</p>
<p>not the Renault 3 like I hoped... so the photo is 1963 then?</p>

<p>The R4 and the R3 entered the market in 1961; the R3 was made for the French market (smaller engine for tax reasons) although some were sold in Holland.</p>

Apparently it had something to do with tax
The R3 was in the 3CV tax bracket and the R4 in the 4CV tax bracket.

The R4L had the extra window and the larger Dauphine engine.

They were designed to rival the Citroen 2cv
