Vehicle Description

1983 Renault lecar or le car R5,
If you don't know the history of the LeCar they were introduced in the late 70s by Renault to compete with Vw beetles.
Renaults were imported to the US in the early 80s and LeCar was one of the models that made it. These are very rare cars to find.
This is a 4dr model with the biggest engine 1.4L, I think they had a 900cc and a1100.The previous owner sates that the engine is 1.6L with a 1.8L head but not sure.  It also has a big leather sunroof.
The car was originally gold and has been dipped recently to matte black. Paint job is not good.
The car runs and drive good. This one is especially unique the updates are too many to list but you can look at the pictures and see them all. Some of the updates include:

 Air intake 2 stage rev control upgraded ignition system, super coil distributer, roll bar, straight pipe (sounds amazing) twin exhaust tip, battery has been moved to the rear with a battery maintainer attached, after market gauges (rpm, oil, temp) 2 pc aftermarket wide rims all tires recently sealed fender flares.  Good body some damage as you can see in the pictures.

An excellent driver needing minor cosmetics.

Any questions welcome.
