1969 Renault 16 TS petrol
Great car, wish there were more about
Head gasket blew at about 100,000 miles.
Problems with electrical wiring, possibly previous owner?
This was my first car I bought after 5 previous owners.
After motorcycles, it felt like driving a tank.
The Renault 16 was a 'poor man's Rolls Royce.
Comfort was out of this world, beat all other cars.
My TS was very reliable, clocking up about 80,000 miles.
I've had seven 16's in all over the years, last 1994, TX.
She's been 'off road' for 27 odd years.
Now undergoing full, detailed re-build, 3 years so far.
Welding 90% done, still lots to do, 2011 finish maybe?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
