Here's the nicest Renault Alliance left. That might not be true, but it's certainly hard to believe that a better one exists. This particular example is offered for sale on Autotrader and is in excellent shape, which is an amazing feat, considering that the vast majority of these cars wasted away decades ago.

Here's a brief overview. The Renault Alliance was developed in a partnership between French automaker Renault and American automaker AMC, and it was built in Wisconsin. Even though the Alliance was sold for more than five years and more than 600,000 examples were built, the car was plagued with issues, so very few survived.

But this one survived brilliantly. This is a 1986 Alliance L Convertible finished in light blue with a gray top and a gray interior. It's in absolutely fantastic shape, and it's almost hard to imagine one surviving until now -- it's been years since I've even seen one of these on the road, let alone a convertible, let alone a convertible that looks this nice.

So how did this Alliance survive for so long? The Carfax report shows that it was originally sold in Princeton, New Jersey, and made its way to Texas in 1998. Interestingly, this car didn't have just one owner, which is usually the case with well-preserved cars such as this one. Instead, it was passed to several people, and they all preserved it. However, it appears that it might have had just one owner after 1998, though it moved from Texas to Washington in 2010.

If you're interested, this Alliance is offered for $9,998 by Exclusive Motors in the Sacramento, California, area. That's a lot of money for a Renault Alliance, but you're unlikely to ever find another in this condition.
