If the Peugeot 504 saloon was a durable, tough but ultimately quite ugly workhorse, then the Pininfarina-designed Cabriolet version was its complete opposite. Stunning to look at and rewarding to drive, the 504 Cabriolet was a massively desirable car in its day. Unusually for a car of its era, the roof could be folded completely out of sight and stored under a narrow tonneau cover behind the rear seats, while other neat touches included stylized rear light clusters and discreet Pininfarina badges on the rear flanks. Power came from a 1.8-liter fuel-injected four-cylinder engine, although this was later joined by a 2.6-liter V6 with the arrival of the Mk 2 model, which had individual square headlamps, in 1974. Production of all Cabriolet versions continued until 1983. The saloon remains in production today in Nigeria and Kenya, where the sight of 504s is commonplace.
