You don’t see many Peugeot 504 saloons in rally trim. This one is for sale in Kenya.
The Peugeot 504 saloon is not your typical rally car in classic rally sport. With one exception: Africa.
The big Peugeots have done really well in rallies in Africa, mainly in the East African Safari, or Safari Rally as it was called since 1974.
In 1975, Ove Andersson and Jean Todt actually won the rally in their 504 saloon.
So Peugeot 504’s do have a pedigree in African rally sport, which probably explains why they are now being used in classic rallies on the African continent.
Like this one from 1972.
It is for sale now in Kenya, after it has just raced the Nanyuki rally last February. This rally is the traditional opening of the Kenyan Rally Raid season.
According to the seller, the car has been designed by English safari rally driver and mechanic Dave Gough.
And to our amateur-eyes, it looks awesome.
Several pictures show what has been done to the car. It is being offered for KES 16,000,000.
This comes down to EUR 128,747 or USD 158,668. Now that is serious business.
