Donald Grant Renault Caravelle / South Africa
This is a rebuilt 1964 model, 1100cc. But not entirely original.
At our altitude of 1500m and temperature of up to 35 celcius, the 1100cc and rear radiator are not good enough.
In the rebuild the following was done,
Strengthen chassis rails to cure the most flexible body ever produced.
1289cc 77mm stroke engine with normal performance tuning
5 speed gearbox.
Oil cooler in front, no sign of hot running any more.
Trust you may find this interesting.
+ 35 celcius !! Thats nice but hey. To you it must be a very exiting experience to come to drive in out Ice-Track days!! Your very well come, Donald.
