Peugeot 504 cabriolet by Pininfarina (1973)

The 504 cabriolet is one of the most beautiful cars Peugeot ever produced, albeit they were designed and built by Pininfarina in Italy on the rugged 504 mechanicals. This is an early, RHD car with the four-cylinder, fuel injected 2.0 litre engine, not the later V6, but has the nicer, slanting triple rear lights.

This car is an original, UK market model. We bought it on an Irish registration after it had been in the Republic for a short while. On its return here it was MoTed, NOVA confirmation was received and it was subsequently re-registered on its previous UK registration.

The car was restored in the late 1990s (hard copy pictures available on inspection), when a lot of the expected rusty metal was cut out and replaced. Since then, the paintwork had become marked and scuffed. Accordingly, we have had it completely resprayed in a Peugeot metallic grey (it was already grey, but a flat colour). The replacement is an official Peugeot shade. The seating is sound, in black vinyl and the hood is a replacement vinyl one (also in black) which is in very good condition apart from a small split in the rear pvc window. The wheels are contemporary Peugeot alloys which were restored at the time of the earlier work and have stood up reasonably well. We have replaced the spark plugs and sorted a misfire and the car now runs as it should, as well as renovated the electric window mechanisms. The car comes with a driver's handbook for this model.

These are quite rare cars nowadays, especially in RHD. There were none made and authorised conversions were only carried out in the UK up to 1975. The MoT still has a few months to run although the car is, of course, now exempt from the requirement to have an MoT with effect from 20 May. The car would benefit from further interior detailing but is perfectly usable now as it is and could be worked on further over the winter months. It comes with a quantity of spare parts, mainly for the interior. With values of good LHD models nudging £30k, this must surely be the next one to go up.
