1977 Renault 14 TL 1.2 petrol
When it was old and worn I bought the 1980 version of the same car, which had far less rust problems
The car rusted badly
In moist weather the car sometimes had starting difficulties.
This car was a revolutionary design which was far roomier on the inside than it looked on the outside.
The 1.2 litre short stroke engine was built by Peugeot, and felt more powerfully than the figures (57hp) made to expect.
Although the suspension was extremely soft, the car was very well at fast cornering.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wish you luck with your R14 - I have just bought one from 1980 and only the 3rd owner. I have bought it from 2nd owner who have only had it for 1300 km. The car has 188000 km on the counter, and is in resonbly state.
Would like to get in touch with other R14 owners who know where to get maintains sheets and spare-parts.
