Up for your consideration is a 1983 Renault Alliance Motor Trend Car of the Year Edition #2699/3000. The car is a dark grey with a tan cloth interior. 61,200 original miles. The car is a 5 speed manual, and includes all the options that came on the Motor Trend Edition, including the original bespoke wheels, factory color/paint combo, AM/FM/cassette, trunk luggage rack, etc. This car is all original and runs and drives excellent. I purchased this car in New Jersey from the original owner back around 2012. It was garaged for nearly 20 years before I bought it, however was started on a regular basis every few months. In my tenure of ownership, it has been driven in summers only, and has been a true pleasure to drive. The original paint is faded on the hood, roof, bumpers and trunk lid, but otherwise shows well. There is zero rust on the car.
I have had much maintenance done on the car in my tenure of ownership to bring it up to date from a safety and convenience standpoint, including but not limited to: new tires, new brakes, new alternator, all fluids (engine oil, gear oil, brake fluid, coolant), radiator, thermostat, hoses, etc. It is completely road-worthy; andI would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. There are a couple areas that need looking after on this car. The exhaust has a hole in it, the shifter bushings are a bit worn, and the a/c currently does not blow cold, however, these issues do not affect the drivability of the car. Also, the alternatorstarted acting up last summer,so I bought a brand new one that is ready to install. I can certainly do this for the new buyer, but it is still in the box at the moment, as it was not really a priority for me at that time. I could nit-pick the car further, but am not going to do so. Pictures show everything you need to know. Also keep in mind, it is now 34 years old - I would argue that it is one of the nicest Alliances left in the country, and certainly one of the only MT Editions left at all.
I will also be including with the sale many spare parts – I have a ton of used parts for these cars, including head lamps, brake pads/parts, ignition parts, caps/rotors/plugs, interior trim parts, and the ever rare Systems Sentry computer module. These are incredibly hard to find, and I have seen them sell for over $500 individually in the last few years. All these parts, including numerous books, manuals, etc. will be included. I am clearing out my entire inventory...
I am aware this is a unique car/auction, and as such, am happy to answer any questions you may have. I would love this car to go to a loving home...
Please email with your name / contact information if you have any questions at all. I will ring you to discuss. While there is no warranty expressed or implied, I am all about full disclosure, and would love to talk with any potential buyers so they are comfortable when bidding and know exactly what they are getting into. Please email me with your contact info. and I will reach out to you. Payment requirements are $500 due at the auction close, balance due within 3 business days via official bank check. Note that this is also for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction early.
Thank you for your interest in my Renault.
UPDATE: I have gotten much interest on this car and have been asked many questions on it, and would like to clarify a few points. For starters, I began this auction with no reserve and at $2,900, as that is the price neighborhood I am looking to be in. Also, this car is a driver, and I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. Granted it is 34 years old, and with anything that old, you never know, but everything works as it should. It is in great mechanical shape, and has not let me down in any way. If anyone wants to discuss the car via phone, I would be glad to do so. I really want this car to go to a good home, and for the buyer to feel very comfortable with it. We have gone to great lengths to keep this classic road-worthy. Please message me for any more questions, and I will ring you to discuss.
