The Peugeot 404 Convertible is based on the 404 model family and was presented for the first time in October 1961. The design was created by Pininfarina in Italy, where the open body was also manufactured. The convertible is based on the not-shortened floor assembly of the 404. The overhangs were short and the proportions are elegant and harmonious. Optically the Peugeot has similarities with the Fiat 1500 Cabrio and looks like a small Ferrari 250 GT. This is no coincidence, as both models were also designed by Pininfarina. The conventional four-cylinder with lateral camshaft, cross-flow head and five-bearing crankshaft drives the rear axle. With displacements of 1.5 and 1.6 litres the engines produce 44 to to 65 KW. The comfortable chassis is typically French. From 1962 to 1968, a total of 10,398 units were built.
This Peugeot 404 convertible was first registered in France in 1963. Later, in June 1998, it was registered again in the Netherlands. The vehicle was purchased in spring 2018 with only 17,854 km from a dealer by us and registered to our company (formerly Eberhard Thiesen KG) with a historic license plate. In the following summers, we have enjoyed the car without any problems for almost 10,000 km. An uncapricious and casual entry level classic for relaxed cruising and journeys – the French “Savoir Vivre” is a constant companion.
