Renault Caravelle Floride Convertible 1958 - 1968 T-Shirt for Men

At a convention of North American distributors that took place in Florida, Renault's US dealers called for the creation cabriolet, which would improve the image of the company in the critical US market. Renault's chairman, Pierre Dreyfus, agreed, and since the concept had been born at the convention in Florida the car instantly became known within the company as the "Renault Floride". The "Floride" name was considered unsuitable for 49 of the 50 states of the USA, however, since it could have implied disrespect to states other than Florida. For this reason an alternative name, "Caravelle", was from the start used for North America and for other major markets where the principal language was a form of English. So, at the 1958 Paris Motor Show, the public was introduced to the Renault Caravelle. The Renault Caravelle Floride was produced from 1958 through 1968, with over 117,000 examples created. The convertible design was courtesy of Pietro Frua who was working at Carrozzeria Ghia at the time. The car had a rear-engined design and used the engine and floorpan of the Renault Dauphine. The little cabriolet was launched in the United States and Canada a year after its introduction in Europe.

A game of subtle lights and shadows reveal the magnificent curves of the body of the Renault Caravelle Floride Convertible, a Legendary French Automobile. Detailed and harmonious, the artistic illustration has grabbed the essence of one of the most influential vehicle of the 20th century and is printed in front of the tee.
