Hi there, I'm a volunteer in the curatorial team at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon and that has led to me joining the SAHB the Society of Automotive Historians in Britain. Naturally Gaydon doesn't cover French cars but the SAHB does.

I've volunteered to write an article about the Renault 4 to cover the history, development, owning one in the 21st century and the forthcoming 60th anniversary.

The magazine is A5 size and the SAHB has around 150 paid up members. The article will be around 2500 words, so not just a couple of paragraphs but not a book.

I need photos of prototypes, early vehicles and basically anything interesting and relevant. These photos must be ones I can use in terms of quality but more importantly, copyright.

Can any forum representatives let me know if they have any usable? Do any members have ones I can use?

Any response is very welcome. I need to get a draft of the article to the editor at the end of December to aim for publication in early March.

Many thanks.

Hello Mark,
Re your comment "any response is very welcome"...... I guess you are aware that the humble Renault 4 remains the principal mode of transport for families in Europe's developing countries. There is no finer example than Portugal, where these "usable" classics are used to their full potential, and it is impossible for us to take a short run to the shops without passing (at least) one travelling in the opposite direction.
I look forward, very much, to reading your article,
regards, Neil
