Rear Engine Cars  -  Dauphine - The Dauphine - Restoration 1

back to Dauphine Johns Restoration Clives Dauphine

This car was bought by a British service man and sent directly from France to his base in Malaysia.

When I picked it up it still had the original painted export plates underneath the Malaysian ones.

For some reason the car spent many years in a container at Southampton docks before being re discovered.

It was then owned by a number or club members including Steve Dixon and Dave Wheeler.

Here are some pictures of the car being picked up as you can see she was no beauty but never the less almost rust free.

It was a real club effort to retrieve the car from Steve’s front garden with Dave Wheeler John Pigeon and myself turning up with Johns van and trailer
