Peugeot 504 Cabriolet
To extend the shelf life of a model, there must be many successful variants. Also something the Peugeot 504 has succeeded in. Eventually the 504 was offered as Coupe, Cabriolet, Break, Pickup, Dangel (4×4) and as Ambulance (the Loisirs).
We take a closer look at the Cabriolet in this section. We have a beautiful 504 Cabrio, performed in the Arrosa Blanc. The coach was designed by Pininfarina, and it shows! The convertible is an example of understated elegance, something that seems to be a bit lost in 2019. In addition to its Italian design, the 504 convertible also has a bit of Italian blood; it came from the same factory tire as the Alfa Romeo Spider “Duetto”. Another special fact: the specimens that were sold in New Zealand were screwed together by rival Renault there!
Technically speaking, the Cabrio is largely the same as the Berline, but the wheelbase (15 cm shorter) differs considerably. He shares the 2.0 liter engine with injection with the 504 Ti. From 1970 to 1974 the 4-pitter was canceled and replaced by the PRV V6 block, a block developed by Renault, Volvo and Peugeot itself. After long insistence on the enthusiasts, the four-cylinder models were delivered to the Cabrios again in 1974. After 1978, the PRV V6 was even canceled and could only be found in the Coupe.
In the end, just over 3 million 504s were delivered in Europe. Why are they hardly in the streets anymore? Export. Because the car is also very popular in African countries because of its simple technology and reliability. It is almost the French version of the Mercedes W123. A bottle of Dreft on wheels; it lasts longer, much longer!
This 504 is from 1982 and is in top condition. The car is entirely in original colors. The car is originally from Switzerland, has crossed the border with the Netherlands and has found its current home in a Peugeot collection.
