I agree too, maybe there's a shot without the Renault.

Can we list it as "Made for USA"? It's an early one (small back lamps) and it doesn't look like US-spec (original bumpers) except the side markers.

Behind the Renault you can see a pick-up conversion of a Volkswagen beetle...

It must have been very unusual choice for a car back then. French made car and a hatchback (Americans prefer sedans even today).

I think we have now covered almost all 'Made for US' French cars except Peugeot 304 and Eagle Medallion (Renault R21).

These were quite rare in the U.S. I grew up in San Francisco where imported cars were plentiful in the 1960's but the Renault 16 was rarer than the occasional R10.

Crazy to see this car in a movie.
