Description:

1978 Other Makes Renault Rodeo 6

The Rodeo, uilt by ACL for Renault, s a beach buggy in the style of Citroen Mehari, ini Moke, iat Jolly orVW Thing. Rodeo is based on the Renault 4 platform and Renault 6 4-cyl, 198 cc engine. Fiberglass body tub is attached to the steel floorpan with all independent suspension and FWD.

While often described as a utility vehicle, odeo is all about driving fun. Light steering, ager (if a little underpowered) engine and umbrella-handle shifter make for a memorable trip, o matter how short the distance.

With the hardtop in place the little Renault assumes perhaps the most serious role in its repertoire. Fold the rear seat and you can go Ikea shopping or camping. With canvas convertible top installed and side panels in place it offers rain protection but with side panels removed, he Rodeo becomes an amusement ride.

Take the top off, old the windshield down and head for the beach or down your favorite country lane. Driving the Rodeo this way is like riding a scooter, ll smiles and giggles.

This Rodeo was refurbished a few years back. It looks and drives very well. Iwrote “refurbished” as the aim of the previous owner was clearly not to turn this Rodeo into a show quality car but rather to have a reliable and useable, un and entertaining driver.

The rear hatch has a couple of small cracks under the rear window, ended with pop rivets (see picture). Otherwise clean engine compartment shows some welding marks where the sheet metal was replaced. The green paint looks good. The simple interior is clean and free of defects. The dashboard is free of cracks. Alpine steering wheel is a surprising addition and a pleasure to hold.

Canvas top, ide panels and cargo bars are included and are in excellent condition.

The 4x4 insignia are strictly for fun. Front-wheel drive only.

Pictures with the canvas top were taken while the car was still in Europe.

Inspections and test drives are welcome prior to the auction’s conclusion.

The Rodeo comes with Illinois title. All import papers are in order.
