Facts about Renault Juvaquatre        

Renault Juvaquatre 1937-1953

This paticular car was registered the first and only time in 1947-6-18 to a farmer Ferdinand Karlsson, Trekanten, Ljungby. No one else seems to been registered owner to it after him.In the registration paper it says "not suitable for military purpose", which means that the army did not put a requisition in case of war.

Restoration diary.

1997-06-26: Transportation of the car to my garage. During the following weeks the engine and other parts were cleaned and sand blasted.

1997-10-25: Visited the Swapmeet at Herning, Denmark and bought a generator and two gasket sets for the engine.

1997-10-26 Visited a "dealer in used carparts" in Tollarp, "Skåne", Sweden and bought an oilpump and breaker points.

1998-03-14 Visited the Swapmeet in Herning, Denmark and found a camshaft timing-gear.

2000-02 16 During the 2.5 years that I had the car I have travelled around Sweden and Denmark to many Swap meet looking far parts but found very little. Last autumn I found a Fourgonnette (R2100)  that I bought. I hoped to restor it, but it was in to bad condition so I had to scrap it. Now I have some parts that I don´t need, like a 662 engine, a gearbox type 282, doors and other things that don´t fit to my car. Mail me if you need something.
