The Renault Caravelle is automobile which was produced by the French manufacturer Renault between 1958 and 1968. Renault was envious of the growing success in North America of the Volkswagen Bug/Beetle and were looking for ways they might match the Volkswagen’s success with their own Renault Dauphine . At a convention of North American distributors that took place in Florida, enault’s US dealers called for the creation of a Dauphine coupé/cabriolet which would improve Renault’s image in the critical US market. Renault’s chairman, Pierre Dreyfu, greed, nd since the concept had been born at a convention in Florida the car instantly became known within the company as the “Renault Floride” .The “Floride” name was considered unsuitable for 49 of the 50 states of the USA, owever, ince it could have implied disrespect to states other than Florida. For this reason an alternative name, Caravelle”, as from the start used for North America and for other major markets (including the UK) where the principal language was a form of English.

This nicely represented Renault features a “670-05” four-cylinder water-cooled engine, speed manual transmission. Renault upgraded the suspension for the 1960 model, Suspension Aérostable”, mproved the car’s ride and road holding with the addition of extra rubber springs at the front reduced roll and auxiliary air spring units at the rear gave the rear wheels a small degree of negative camber and increased cornering grip providing pleasurable predictable driving.
