The Peugeot 504 was a sturdy, comfortable and rather elegant family saloon in its day. Most of them were sold new in Europe and then granted a second life in Africa. Not many of them have survived in Europe, at least not as many as 404’s. But you can still find 504s in countries like France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Most of them have been restored, others are survivors that are kept going by doing just the necessary maintenance. Rarely you find a 504 that is like brand new. But now, we’ve found two of them. And both of them are in the Netherlands. In fact, they are offered at the same price.
A Peugeot 504 that has not been eaten by rust is quite a find, especially in the Netherlands. So to find one is quite a rarity. But how about finding two? These two cars are on sale in the Netherlands right now. The green one is a 2.0 GL from 1977 with manual gearbox and has run only 18,439 kilometers. The car was bought new by a man who owned a building company. After he died in 1998, the car was stored. The present owner is a classic car specialist who bought the car in 2010 and saved it untill its 40th birthday, which is now. The car looks to be immaculate and brandnew, which would explain the hefty price of EUR 14,950.
The other 504 is a 2.0 TI from 1978. This is the top-of-the-bill model, in an original bronze metallic color and equipped with luxury goodies like electric windows, leather seats and fuel injection. This one also has automatic transmission. It also has nonoriginal but very stylish alloy wheels from the 505 GTI and the odometer shows 106,200 kilometers. Other than the green 504, this car has no original Dutch history but was imported in 2010. The asking price of this car is, believe it or not, also EUR 14,950.
