Le Slow – 1980 Peugeot 504 Break Diesel

January 14, 2015

Something about the French cars this week – there’s generally no tie-in with the news here, and claiming that there was would be a lie, but it’s a strange coincidence that several interesting ones are available. In this case, there’s a car, and should you choose to accept it, a business plan. The plan goes like this: 1) Buy Peugeot 504 Diesel wagon; 2) Ship it in a container to your preferred African country, preferably a former French colony; 3) Sell the Peugeot 504 for a fat profit! What could possibly go wrong? There’s even a parts car to pad your margins with. Check out this 1980 Peugeot 504 Diesel Wagon for sale for $800 in Sebastopol, CA.

Bien Rare – 1970 Peugeot 504 Berline

April 16, 2014

As you’ve seen in previous features, and in spite of its obscurity here in North America, the Peugeot 504 should be awe-inspiring to you since its longevity is equivalent to Mercedes W123 and Volvo 140 and 240-series cars. What’s more is, they managed to design in that French comfort unparalleled by any other manufacturer in its class. Sure, Volvos have great seats, and those firm Mercedes seats will hold you for hours without causing discomfort, but neither of those can truly coddle you while still providing excellent handling. You can find this 1970 Peugeot 504 sedan for sale for $2800 in North Hollywood, CA.

Are We There Yet?? – 1980 Peugeot 504 Diesel Wagon Automatique

March 10, 2014

“Are we there yet?” is a phrase that’s most often associated with family road trips, preferably in a floaty-boat of a station wagon with two three-seat benches and the vis-a-vis rear seat, all upholstered in vinyl. But the phrase only gets real meaning when the car you’re in is not powered by a hulking V8 with somewhere between 200 and 400 hp, but a 2.3-liter diesel engine with a mere 70hp. But wait, there’s more – add the weight of impact bumpers and other malaise-era safety equipment, and then strangle the whole lot with une transmission automatique. “You want ze automatique? You can ‘ahve eet, but eet weel be slower zan continental drift. And shut up about your aire conditionee.” You can find this 1980 Peugeot 504 Diesel Wagon Automatique for sale for $4000 in Yuba, CA.
