Such a preserved car is a rarity and this example is worthy of the Renault museum finished in factory original Super Gloss Aurora Beige, (Code 116). The side coachlining incorporating the Broadway motif and Broadway boot badge is perfect and all glass is Renault Saint Gobain with window etching. All trim, moulding and headlamps are superb and the clean underside is a purists dream having covered such few miles and always stored in a centrally heated garaged from new. The rear screen has the supplying dealer and other Renault stickers applied from new and the number plates are dealer fit too. Difficult to fault and almost production-line perfect.
Being the 1.4 Auto this is the highest specification Broadway Edition available with unique features such as the Sand velour upholstery in lieu of cloth check and full deep pile carpeting. Genuine Renault rubber floor mats front and rear have been fitted since new and even the supplying dealer paper floor mats have been kept! Also unique to the top specification 1.4 Auto is the Philips Car Cassette Receiver 451 in full working condition along with all the other switches and gauges. Natural veins to the unworn steering wheel only found on very low mileage cars are clearly visible and the pedal rubbers are virtually new. The boot area is factory perfect and unused along with the jack and wheel brace. A new 1980’s Renault lounge interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the 1397cc 4 cylinder engine with integral electronic ignition, a power output of 68bhp is quoted, enough to reach 96mph. A spotless and unmolested engine compartment displays all the manufacturer plates, stickers and paint code markings as well as PDI paint dabs. A service using genuine Renault parts has just been carried out. The optional 3-speed automatic transmission changes gear smoothly and offers a very capable and lively drive, typical of a lightweight French car.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Four aerodynamic wheel stylers are unmarked with the Renault logo and incredibly still shod in the factory tubeless Michelin XZX 155 SP13 tyres. Although preserved with no cracks if regular use is intended it would be prudent to change the tyres for modern items and preserve the original set for shows. Dual circuit hydraulic brakes incorporate servo assistance with discs up front and rear drums with a pressure limiter to offer adequate stopping power.
Registered new on the 6th May 1986 by Renault Main Dealer Arnold Clark, this immaculate example has only had two family owners from new, Mr James Lamont senior and Mr James Lamont junior. Senior Mr Lamont kept the vehicle for Sunday best being an absolute stickler for preservation he even kept the Arnold Clark paper floor mats still with the car! On his passing in 2004 his son inherited the vehicle keeping it raised off the ground in a centrally heated garage and continuing the preservation. Adamant that the car must find a good home KGF Classic Cars are honoured to be given the opportunity to work with this rare surviving Renault 9, seldom seen on UK roads, and will guarantee it will suit any Renault enthusiast or collector of quirky perfect classic cars. Two sets of keys on original dealer fobs.
