  • How about this '88 Renault Medallion? After purchasing the wreckage of AMC in , Chrysler decided to rebrand the Medallion as an Eagle.

    This Renault Medallion was sold before all that shit went down, and looks to still be relatively drama free today. The 21 upon which the.

    History of the logo. The Renault logo has an interesting history. During the First World War, the company successfully produced light tanks. In connection with the popularity of the company's tanks, the leadership of Renault even changed the logo, placing in it the image of his tank. But the tank on the emblem was not delayed for a long time, in 1923 a well-known form of diamond appeared. However, this is not a diamond - it is a trace from the tank.

    I have no idea what happened to this Medallion, but I'd like to think it's still running). Is this the very last running Renault Medallion? I can't.

    Guilty Pleasure: Renault Medallion

    Is this the very last running Renault Medallion? Its stats are certainly pretty impressive. It essentially replaced both the lame-ented R18 and the obsolete Concord in the line-up, slotting between the compact Alliance and the full-size Premier.

    The Renault 21 was new in France one year earlier, designed to be a competitor to the popular VW Passat and such. Its clean design was by the top designer of the period, Giorgetto Giugiaro. It was roomy, had that famous French ride, and not surprisingly, had a few quirks. One of the more unusual aspecones is that it was built in four wheelbase lengths six, strictly speaking , and with both transverse and longitudinal engines.

    These two pictures by Hooniverse commenter Vavon , explain the four different wheelbase lengths perfectly. But take a close look at the front wheels of these two: That required setting the wheels further back, as in the lower wagon pictured. Strictly speaking, the all-wheel drive versions had a few millimeter different wheelbase, so technically there were six wheelbase variants. Try that in a Hornet Sportabout! Actually, the Renault Espace came out in , but it took a while for vans to really catch on in Europe.

    The US-bound Medallion-badged cars all came with the 2. This is the same engine also found in US-bound Fuegos as well as the gas-powered version of the LeSharo motorhome. Gets a bit complicated, eh? Maintaining adequate production volume on that was a challenge, and Chrysler resorted to a Dodge-branded version, the Monaco , to try to keep the lines running, until it finished development of the Premier-based new LH cars.

    But the Medallion was shown the door, in favor of Mitsubishi products for the Eagle line-up. But it only has 69, miles, which probably motivated John in the first place to adopt it, and fix that issue.

    It probably also explains the excellent condition of the upholstery; actually, these cars had quite a nice interior to go along with lots of room. And call me a Franco-phile, but I rather like that dashboard quite a lot. As is obvious, this one is an automatic. A five speed stick was also available. They had to order that nice new white overflow tank from France. They were able to find an engine gasket kit, which was needed when they pulled the cylinder head in order to fix the front camshaft seal.

    But the engine has what they say is a misfire in one cylinder. But I wonder if that would cause a misfire in just one cylinder? Anyone got any good ideas? It would make me proud to know that my home town has what may well be the last Renault Medallion plying its streets, thanks to these home-town CC heroes! It will be the one part of the car that is reliable and they could go on to fix all the other issues, if it has any. I have never had the fortune of seeing one of these in person at least in recent memory.

    One has to think of what this car could have done in the U. I really think Chrysler could have made the Eagle brand semi-successful, had they given it more than a minute of attention.

    From what you wrote here, the Medallion line seems pretty competitive for its time. Been driving mine every day since I bought it in San Francisco in …still using it today 3 8 and it is my most comfortable car for long hauls! Out of curiosity… Do you happen to know if this car spent an extended amount of time parked at the Menlo Park Caltrain station in ? I could almost swear that this is the same one I used to see there when I worked in that part of the world.
