Peugeot 404

August 10th, 2007 by Rolph · 1 Comment

Not particularly outstanding, but since it is quite rare to spot one ‘alive’, why not take some pictures of this old Peugeot 404. It is a wee bit rusty, which isn’t surprising… The interior appears to be intact and authentic, rather stereotypical French velour hahaha. And of course this Peugeot is proudly fitted with yellow headlights.

I don’t know much about this car, so stealing from wikipedia:

The Peugeot 404 was a mid-sized car produced from 1960 to 1988. This was the most successful of several contemporary cars whose body style, designed by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, was based on his Florida II concept car.

And sure enough, moments after you take the pictures of this crappy rust bucket, you run into a nicely kept example on the highway… Typical, but enjoy:
