Clenet Coachworks made just over 480 automobiles. In the following tables, we will try to register the latest known owner and location of each Series Series III Asha and Series IV. Information has been taken from Clambakes, old Coachword articles and other sources. The data is far from complete so please contribute when you see errors, missing or old information. We often hear of cars for sale or persons looking to buy a Clenet. Maybe we can help you but please remember we are not dealers, just owner-enthusiasts.

The original Clenet Coachworks produced 36 Series III (Asha) automobiles. The first 14 had hardtops, the following 22 were convertibles. The Carpinteria works then produced 15 more convertibles from 1984 to 1986 bringing the total to 51. Note, however that records have been lost and memories differ. Many times, cars were built out of sequence. The Carpinteria period was a very sad time in Clenet history. It lasted only a very short time before filing bankruptcy. Alain Clenet was totally out of the picture during this period. The Carpinteria outfit was under the control of a certain Alfred DiMora who oversold financial interests in the company and was eventually incarcerated.

The Series IV was a Carpinteria venture and only one true production model was made. There were some 10 frames laid out for this car, and some were assembled afterwards which we classify as "nearly Clenets". The serial number of the car produced is out of sequence because the owner wanted 007 on the plaque. Certain people argue that the Series IV was not a Clenet at all since Alain Clenet had little to do with its production. It bears much resemblance to a car Alain originally designed for the Japanese market.
