1962 Renault 8
Renault introduced the Renault 8 in 1962, a small family car that quickly became a popular choice in Europe. The Renault 8 featured a rear-mounted engine that produced up to 50 horsepower, providing adequate power for the car’s size. Its independent suspension system also contributed to a smooth and comfortable ride (via Classic Car Catalogue).

The car’s unique body design, with a sloping rear and distinctive tail fins, made it stand out from other small cars of the time. Production of the Renault 8 continued until 1971, with over a million units sold worldwide. The car remains a popular choice among collectors to this day.
