Occasionally we get the rare privilege of discovering a car we never knew existed, let alone seen in person. And so was the case with this little Peugeot 204 Coupe I spotted in a French country town the other day.
My initial reaction was that this must be some kind of rare vehicle, and seeing one in person unlikely. As it turns out the 204 Coupe is relatively plentiful – over 42,000 were made from 1966-70. How many of these are left though, is another question all together.
With a front mounted, front wheel drive 1130cc four cylinder, the 204 isn’t particularly fast and it isn’t particularly rare, so I guess that’s probably why I’ve never encountered one before. But nonetheless, I think it’s still a pretty little French coupe, and it was good to see this original condition car wearing its original license plates and still in daily use.
