Theme Week – Non-Italian Cars…Styled by Italians: 1973 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet

Peugeot has a long history of relying on Italian designers for some of their most iconic and exclusive vehicles. Pininfarina is a styling house they have done business with for decades. A few examples of this collaboration was the popular 505 sedan and estate, the 406 Coupe and the 1988 European Car of the Year, the 405. One of the lesser known examples of Pininfarina's work with Peugeot is the 504 Coupe and Cabriolet. From the looks of it, this car could be a mix between a Fiat 124 Spider and Fiat Dino, both of which were styled by Pininfarina, as well. These sporting vehicles were based off of the simple, rugged 504 sedan, which was produced from 1968 and carried on with updates until 2004, when production ceased in Nigeria. This particular 504 Cabriolet for sale in The Netherlands has the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine with Kugelfischer mechanical injection.

1973 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet

Peugeot 504 Cabriolet in excellent condition. Very beautifully restored and well maintained. This Peugeot is rust free and still has the old four headlights and rear lamps. Original cloth seats in good original condition. Super convertible. Car has license plates and TUV. To register simply enter any EU country, you pay no import tax.

The 504 Cabriolet is a good way to get into a French cabriolet with bespoke styling on a budget. While the asking price of €17,950 (~ $22,000 USD) is not exactly chump change for an almost 40 year old French classic, it is a lot less than what you could expect to pay for a Citroën DS Cabriolet of the same vintage.
