Known History

Unveiled in October 1961, the Peugeot 404 convertible had many virtues, which contributed to its success. Indeed, its bodywork with its elegant lines is the work of Pininfarina, while mechanical reliability was assured by the proven elements that make the reputation of Peugeot.

The example on offer is the most desirable version, since it is equipped with the more powerful mechanicals, with the injection and the original Super Luxe finish. The Citroën Conservatory also confirmed that it had left the factory on October 12, 1966, and sold new in the Alpes Maritimes, a department where it would remain until 2013, when it was purchased by the current owner. The latter then entrusted the vehicle to Garage Rétropassion for restauration. The work spanned three years, and more than €28,000 was spent. The bodywork has been restored and repainted in ocean blue, while the original blue 1041 shade can be found in the engine compartment. Engine and gearbox have been completely re-conditioned, after complete disassembly. The hydrovac, conforming to the original configuration, has been redone. The leather upholstery has been partially restored, retaining the original seats and armrests. We noted that the original clock had been replaced by a non-functional tachometer. A test revealed good mechanical operation. The braking is balanced and the clutch progressive. With very few miles since refurbishment, the tires are almost new. We invite buyers to look at the details of the work carried out which will surely convince them.

We're grateful to the Peugeot Citroën DS archive's center for their invaluable help.
