Description:

1983 Renault Other Alliance Motor Trend COTY Edition 2699/3000

Good Day,

Up for your consideration is a Renault package deal. 2 Renaults for sale, a 1983 Alliance Motor Trend Edition 2699/3000, and a 1987 GTA Coupe. The cars will be sold as a pair, and will include my large collection of spare parts, some of which are very coveted in the Renault community. Descriptions of both cars are listed below.

1983 Renault Alliance Motor Trend Edition #2699/3000 - The car is 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, all fluids (engine oil, gear oil, brake fluid, coolant), radiator, thermostat, hoses, etc. It is completely road-worthy; I 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 worn, and the a/c currently does not blow cold, however, these issues do not affect the drivability of the car. I could nit-pick the car, but am not going to do so. Pictures show everything you need to know, and as you will see below, the GTA is a complete parts car that will have anything you may need going forward. Also, keep in mind, it is now 33 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.

1987 Renault GTA Coupe – The car is white exterior with a black cloth interior. ~120K original miles. The car is a 5-speed manual, and includes all the options that came on the GTA, including factory Recaro seats, original bespoke Ronal wheels, all factory body skirting, original fog lights with covers, etc. This is a 100% whole and complete car. It ran a few years ago, but I have not run it on the road, due to undercarriage rust, and as such, I consider this a parts car. The body of the car is in amazing shape, all things considered, and the interior is excellent for the age. I could have had the floors welded up, but with the MT edition in my garage, thought it would be nice to keep a spare car for parts on hand, as many parts are no longer available. To date, I have never had to pull a part off if it. If motivated enough to do some metal replacement underneath, you could have the 2 rarest models of Alliance ever made. For me, one good running car and one solid parts cars was all I needed…

Parts – I have a plethora 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. This is incredibly rare, and I have seen them sell for over $500 individually in the last few years. All these parts, including books, manuals, etc. will be included. I am clearing out my entire inventory.


I am aware this is a unique auction, and as such, am happy to answer any questions you may have. I would love these cars to go to a loving home. A little about how these cars came into my ownership. When I was a young child, my parents had an ’86 Alliance that they bought brand new. All my memories growing up were in that car. We eventually sold it in ’94, but that car always held a special place in my heart. Back around 2009-2010, my father fell terminally ill. I thought it would be nice to relive our past a bit, and try to get another Alliance for us to enjoy with the limited time he had left. I eventually bought the white ’87 GTA first, but upon realizing the rust underneath, promptly started looking for another shell. Never thought I would find a gem of a car like the grey ’83 MT Edition, but that is how we ended up with the 2 cars. My father ended up passing in late 2013, and ever since, my ownership of these cars leaves me with bittersweet memories. I love driving them, but something is missing. I feel it is best to move them on to the next owner, so they can be enjoyed properly.


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 these are also for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction early.


Thank you for your interest in my Renaults.


Best,
