Renault has been building since 1901 vans and it was therefore only logical that there soon after the introduction of the Renault 4 saloon, an order version was marketed. This was considered to be another hit. The Fourgonnette as they called type, was on the same chassis as the Renault 4 built.
The reverse side had a nearly square cargo space, with a roof provided with a rounded girafon. A girafon a flap over the back, which can be put open to stabbing through long articles. The added advantage of this valve was the additional venting option on a hot summer day.
The payload of the f4 was about 1.8 cubic meters and the car was 300 kg. transport. In later versions, this was 350 kg. The first version was equipped with a 750 cc. motor and three gears, which is soon followed by a 850 cc. engine with 4 speed transmission. The primitive tube bumpers of the first types were replaced from 1964 by the pressed so flat bumpers. This only applied to the front bumper. The rear bumper was a simple tube model. F4 of the model has also been made a combi version with side windows and a rear seat so that it became possible to bring back passengers.
In total Fourgonnettes just over 2 million produced from 1961 to 1993. When rolled the last Renault 4 from the band. The model is made for 32 years and especially in the southern countries are still reasonable driving around. Here in the Netherlands, especially the f4 almost disappeared from the streets, the f6 you come in very modest numbers against.
