Finally picked up the Renault 17! (Repost)

Stoked to finally pick the Renault 17TS Découvrable up. It was a bit of a hassle as the rear drums were seized. However, the tow truck driver gave it a few taps, and it started rolling a bit. When we wanted to roll it off the truck using gravity it didn’t get very far though...

Besides the fun picking it up, I learned some interesting new facts about it:

-The colour is way nicer than I thought, much more of a blue instead of a grey

-It might be a TS as it has TS badges, which means (slightly) more power from a larger 1647cc engine. However, it is/was registed as a TL with a 1596cc engine, so I guess I need to find out via engine block codes.

Anyway, enough words, on to some pictures:

Next step will be to make a list of what needs fixing, and start sourcing parts. Luckily a few fellow R17 owners have already offered me to help with looking for parts. Also a hat tip to our own chinny raccoon for helping me to get a Haynes manual for the R17, so I can actually fix it.
