1957 Renault 4CV

The Renault 4CV is an economy car produced by the French manufacturer Renault from August 1947-July 1961. As the first French car to sell over a million units, the 4CV was ultimately superseded by the Renault Dauphine. The 4CV was a four-door sedan of monocoque construction,3.6 m (11 ft 10 in) in length with front suicide doors and using Renault's Ventoux engine in a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The car's name, 4CV, translates from the French for four cheveaux or "four horse," referring to the engine's tax classification, i.e., four taxable horsepower.
