1990 Renault 5 Express diesel van, 1595cc. Registration number H41 LAJ. Chassis number VF1F4040506113528. Engine number C485785. The second generation R5, was launched in October 1984 with right-hand drive models for the UK market were in January 1985. The bodyshell and platform were completely new (the platform was based on that of the larger Renault 9 and 11), and R5 aesthetic remained; styling was by Marcello Gandini. The biggest changes were adoption of a transversely-mounted powertrain from the 9 and 11 and MacPherson strut front suspension. The second-generation R5 also spawned a panel van version, known as the Renault Extra. This car was intended to replace the R4 F6 panel van, production of which had ceased in 1986. LAJ was bought new by G Kane Vehicle Repairs of Middlesbrough in 1990 who sold it to our vendor in 2014, when the mileage was 56,094 miles. He ran it for a few years until its last MOT in 2018 at 59,708 when it was parked up. When visited by the cataloguer a new battery was all it needed to start. Sold with the V5C, MOT failure sheet, please see the DVLA site for the details and MOT history, a rare sight on the roads today.
