Gordini Roadster

Renault Gordini Roadster -67. 1647cc R20 engine. Wheels are wolfrace 7×14 vith 195-60-14 at the rear and 185-60-14 at the front. The only tuning of the engine are balancing of piston and crankshaft Vales and camshaft are original A more powerful exhoustheader is mounted. A homemade K-jetronic fuelinjection with parts from saab 900 and R17TS are mounted on the engine. See picture 9. Fuelinjection = more horsepower.

I bought the car in 1980, back then it vas a wreck without engine and gearbox. Winter 86/87 I started to rebuilt the car to a roadster. The front doors vas made 15 cm longer and the backdoors vas welded to the back wing. Reinforcement vas welded to the floor to make the car stronger. At first a Gordini 1135 engine vas mounted, but a piston broke, and a 1647 R20 engine vas mounted instead. This engine are at nearly the same horsepower as the Gordini engine but in 2000 lower rpm. In 1990 I got a top from a Renault Caravelle which with smaller adjustment fits the car.
