Description:

1987 Renault Alliance DL

I bought this over the winter hoping for an easy project car, unfortunately my space has become limited so sadly it's time to sell it......I am only the 2nd owner of the car in 33 years! This is a very rare car in this condition! The car is in very good cosmetic condition, the paint is probably not original but looks very good in general with some areas of small bubbles on the hood, other minor defects. If there is any rust on the body it's extremely minor, this car spent most of it's days in California. Has a few very light, minor dings and dents, barely noticeable. There is a very light long crease/dent along the front of the hood, very hard to see. The rear bumper is scuffed/scraped on the right corner. The interior is pretty amazing, original cloth fabric is in great condition & very clean. The engine runs well and the transmission shifts fine, the engine does have some oil leaks, pretty typical, none seem too serious.. The car passed Delaware inspection in January. The top works, electric up/down...it may be original, there are a few small slits/holes in it that were repaired on the inside, may need further repair.....there is also a long tear on the inside fabric of the top above the window, this will also need repair as it does open to the outside. The cars has 2 tonneau covers, one I believe is original and the other the previous owner had custom made, this one covers the entire passenger compartment except the driver's seat. Please note the grommets along both sides of the car and the wide velcro strip on the top of the dash to affix this to which were added. The car has a full size whitewall spare. The tires on it are in good shape as are the original wheel covers. A few other issues: will need some electrical work, the battery will not stay charged when sitting even when the battery cutoff switch is engaged.....this may be a short, bad battery or alternator. The A/C is working but not very cold. The aftermarket radio does not work most of the time. There is a small section of the oil separator rubber hose missing, I think it's part of the PCV system. The side gaskets on the windows are in very bad shape and almost entirely missing on the drivers side, can't drive the car in rain due to this. The passenger side window does NOT roll down. No smoking sign and old cell phone holder affixed to pass. side dash. I believe this car was always garaged based on it's condition, I have had it covered but not garaged, I will include the cover if you want it. I'll also include a few manuals and a few spare parts.
