Renault 8 Gordini 1964 – 1974 Reserved Parking Only Sign
Renault 8 Gordini 1964 – 1974 Aluminum Parking Sign
The Renault R8 rear-engined, rear-wheel drive small family cars was introduced in June of 1962 and was based on the Renault Dauphine, both having the same wheelbase, but with the R8 being slightly narrower. It had a sealed for life cooling system, four-wheel disc brakes, and a Renault 956cc four-cylinder rear-mounted engine. The style, closely following that of the first prototype produced, at unusually short notice, was fashionably boxy. The R8's engine followed the pioneering example of the recently introduced Renault 4 by incorporating a sealed for life cooling system. A distinctive innovation on the French produced cars was the fitting of four-wheel disc brakes, a first for a saloon car of this size. A more powerful version, the 8 model R1134 Gordini, was released in 1964, with a tuned engine of the same capacity but developing 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp). The extra power was obtained by a cross-flow head and twin dual-choke 40mm side-draft Solex carburetors. A four-speed close ratio manual transmission, dual rear shock absorbers and uprated springs were fitted. The R1134 Gordini was originally available only in blue, with two stick-on white stripes. It was also equipped with distinguishable 200mm headlamp units. In 1967, the R8 Gordini (model R1135) received a facelift including two additional headlights, and its engine upgraded to a 1255cc unit rated at 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp). The R1134 Gordini cross-flow head design was retained, and twin dual-choke 40mm Weber side-draft carburetors. The car has won the Tour de Corse, Rally Poland, Rallye Açores, Rali Vinho da Madeira, Boucles de Spa and Rajdowe Samochodowe Mistrzostwa Polski. Bob Watson won the 1970 Australian Rally Championship and was runner-up in the 1971 Australian Rally Championship driving an R8 Gordini. The Renault 8 was awarded Wheels Magazine Australia's Car of the Year Award.
