    / #Peugeot-204 / #Peugeot / #Peugeot-204-Cabriolet : buy one here, not in France

    VALUE 2011 £5250
    VALUE NOW £8500

    The humble Pug 204 may have been France’s best-selling car in the early Seventies but the cute cabriolet is the one we need to watch. Just 18,181 were built from ’ #1965 to ’ #1971 and survival rates are tiny. But when you do see one now their pert dimensions and rakish little canvas top mark them out as special.

    As a drop-top starter classic or cutesy convertible they look great value. Last year an Edinburgh private seller advertised one of only three RHDs ever built for £4700 – and sold it within minutes. That was a cheap car with 62,000 miles and long history. Back in 2007 H&H sold a mint LHD ’ #1968 in white for £3500, so you can see how prices have flatlined for the last decade.

    Under the skin there’s an alloy SOHC 1130cc engine, rack and pinion, independent suspension, four-speed with column shift and discs giving sharp front-wheel drive handling and a composed ride. Don’t get any ideas about performance though – 90mph is all you’ll get and 60 takes an age. But those looks are what will hike values in the future.

    I often rue the day I sold a bright green one for just £500 – and it had only covered 30,000km. But that’s the odd thing about this rare pint-sized French cabriolet – we’ve never, ever appreciated it. Prices across the Channel are much stronger and you won’t buy a decent one for much less than €12,000, with good ones up at €25k.

    There’s a Côte d’Azur elegance to this little car. Find one of those rare survivors at current market money in Britain and you’ll have a very exclusive and swish French cabrio for less than a Triumph Spitаire. I know which one I’d rather have.

    The times you wish you had a Peugeot 204

    Posted in Cars on Thursday, 19 November 2015

    Could the time come when you’re that second too slow? One of those unfortunate accidents — wet conditions — the other party's careless driving. Peugeot owners enjoy that extra response that could save such a situation. Powerful, servo assisted brakes with load compensating device, for immediate yet smooth response.
