Philippe Braud from Angers in France owns this beautiful R16 TS Automatic from November 1972 (model 73) with only 102 000 kms on the meter.
The body was completely restored and repainted in original 355 white last February.
From the rear you can see the special French reversing lights in orange, instead of white. Some rule said that cars in France where not allowed to have white light. That is why most old cars in France still have yellow headlights.
The engine compartment also got a fresh coat of paint.
The left sill had to be replaced due to corrosion. All work was made by a small Renault garage.
