Renault 40CV NM Type JY Skiff 1923 

In the 1920s, Renault had emerged as a major French car manufacturer among a hundred of companies. The main production consisted of light and medium size popular vehicles. Louis Renault decided to improve the Company’s position on the market by adding a prestige line of model. It was time to produce the luxury 40 CV NM with 5 meter length and nearly 3 tons in weight. The Renault 40CV NM was proposed complete with Renault body or as a chassis that could be provided with “glamour” body style by specialist coachbuilders.
The propulsion was handled by a six cylinder 9.120 cc producing near 130 hp. The transmission to the rear wheels was by means of a four speed gearbox with reverse. Drum brakes were mounted on the four wheels. Suspension is by means of leaf springs. A 40CV NM with limousine body weighed 2700 kg. Besides the photos of the 1923 two seats Type JY Skiff we are showing photos of a 1924 Limousine 40CV Type MC exhibited at the 2010 Mondial.
The 1923 Type JY in exhibit at 2012 Mondial is a “glamour” model with two seats for five meters length. There is an optional folding rear seat but it requires agility for access. The Type JY Skiff was prepared by specialist coachbuilder Henry Labourdette and retained typical Renault elements like the “alligator” front bonnet with Renault logo. The radiator is located behind the engine and just in front of the bulkhead supporting the windshield. The cooling air is admitted through side air intakes on both side of the bonnet.
Between 1922 and 1923, 265 Type JY and JY1 were produced.
Length: 5,08 m; Width 1,80 m.
