RHD version :)
New bumpers and still a side strip: 1965 only. Were those orange indicator lights mandatory in Australia ? (In France these were white).

I'd say small light so not Gordini (compare eg /vehicle_3603-Renault-8-Gordini-R1135-1967.html ), though is mentioned as Gordini on forums. Also a RHD Gordini would be a very interesting find.

I know R1135 (Gordini 1300) has Four headlight, I'm talking about the Gordini 1100, R1134, with larger headlight than the regular R1130

I couldn't find a good R1134 photo on imcdb so used a R1135. But compare eg http://www.flickr.com/photos/triggerscarstuff/4551872938/ and http://renaultgordini.skyrock.com/532453612-RENAULT-8-GORDINI-1100.html - it's not a huge difference. Also our car has ordinary wheels - not definitive against Gordini but unusual. It's the RHD issue which is for me the biggest problem as the Gordini was never really sold in UK - there were a handful of conversions and a RHD Motor road test but they were incredibly rare; if one somehow went to Aus it would be a known car there. For interest - Link to "cgi.ebay.co.uk" .

All R1134 were delivered with ordinary wheels and 1st gen R8 hubcap. 180mm headlight are bigger than standard and this one is fitted with 180mm. Anyway, I just mentionned that if it has some interest

Seems Aus had 6-8 R1134 in an estimate from 2003 http://www.aussiefrogs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2897 (halfway down) at least one of which looks RHD - Link to "www.motorbase.com" - though no Cibie bumper sticker. So changing to R1134.

Does anybody know anything about RHD 8 Gordinis? UK seems to have 13 8 Gordinis (presumably mixing 1134 and 1135 and LHD/RHD) - http://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/renault_8_gordini . There also seems to be about ten 12 Gordinis, which is odder as these were definitely not sold here.

Bump! :) I have seen a couple of rare Gordini 8's at car shows in the past - were LHD, if I remember.

howmanyleft.co.uk is a very interesting site, but like the site itself says - not all the records are accurate. True that a lot of cars are much rarer now (some old once-common Brit cars being marked down to less than 10 on the site), but remember that the site only tracks cars that are licensed or that have a SORN (Statutory off road notification) issued. There are actually quite a surprising amount of car owners in the UK that don't tax, renew or update their car info to the DVLA (or mark them down as SORN) and just leave their old cars in garages, barns or out in the back garden for a long period of time without driving them or notifying the government. So say if a certain car has been marked down as having only 20-25 examples left on the road in 2010 or 2011 for example, it doesnĺt necessarily mean that there are that few of them, there could actually be more (at least in other countries if imported aftermarket), or less for that matter. Same with the DVLA vehicle enquiry - just because an old car's liability date was a long time ago, doesn't always mean it was scrapped (although it usually does), it may still be in somebody's garage - just without tax or insurance, etc.
