Photos of 504 in Europe

 

France

This is the home country of the 504... and mine too ! There are less and less 504 to be seen in our streets nowadays, but thanks to its incredible longevity and its fantastic qualities, the 504 is still used a lot. And it was sold as a pick up until 1997! Therefore, you won't spend one day without seeing one or more 504 in the french streets (I admit I might have a strange way to look around when I walk : I now have a sort of radar for 504...)

504 in France

A true vision of horror!! ;-))
This photo was taken in 1985 in Charenton, France. I found it in a photo database on the web, and I rapidly found out that "this" really used to be a 504 GL... So, it is official : there is a way to eradicate a 504 for real! I just hope that there were nobody inside at the time of the crash...

Here is the superb 504 Ti from Philippe Doyen, a french member of the Amicale 504. He completely restored this car, inside and outside. The result is just perfect, as you can see! Surely one of the nicest 504s in circulation today...

Voici la superbe 504 Ti de Phillipe Doyen, membre éminent de l'amicale 504. Philippe a totalement restauré cette voiture de l'intérieur (sellerie, tableau de bord...) à l'extérieur, avec cette peinture d'un bien joli bleu. Notez les jantes alu de type Dunlop.
C'est certainement l'une des plus belles 504 berline en circulation en France!

One of the nicest 504.org story, related by Xav:
"I would like to personally say "thank you" to Jeff, amazing webmaster of this site, cause he not only shared with me his passion but also found my car! My father had one, I always loved genuine french car and my first one was the unique 2CV Citroën. Thanks to Jeff, I met Jean-Louis, living in the north of France, a couple of hours from Paris, where I live. Jean-Louis' father had a 1970 504 GL, gearlever behind the steering wheel, he looked after it personnally, and gave it to his son after 25 years. Jean-Louis kept it with love and affection and kept on driving through France during holiday time, with a trailer at the rear!!! Life led Jean-Louis to get separate from his tremendous car and he was looking for a true lover of 504. He wrote to Jeff, introducing himself and explained with sensitivity his purpose. Jeff called me. I drove to Lille(north of france), spent an exquisite day with Jean- Louis, his wife and daughter. He explained me that the engine and all parts where genuine. After one try I had to admit that I had never been driving such a smooth car, and 30 years of exceptional treatment gives this result (I made the technical testing to get my new owner card. I had nothing to change or fix!!!) At the end of the afternoon, it was time to do the administration. But for the price, Jean- Louis looked at me, and said: " Take the keys and give me some fresh news from her when you have time. That is enough for me!". I was amazed, and champaign was not enough to celebrate this gesture. Because Jeff offers me to spend a few time on this site to complete some sections, I take the chance to write here to tell Jean-Louis how much I thank him for his generosity and true respect for this car that has no price to his eyes. I hope I deserve it, but I am trying to do my best to keep "his" car in perfect shape and regularly tell some good news to him!!!
504ly yours... Xav"
The dream goes on...
Thanks again to Jean-Louis for his great 504 spirit!

What a nice series of 504s!! All of these belong the the Beck family, a very well known name for french 504 fans since Mrs Beck is the president of the French club l'Amicale 504! From what I recall, the parents own the grey sedan and the grey coupé, while their son François owns the 2 other ones! But this is a nice collection indeed!

Voici une bien belle brochette de 504! Elles appartiennent à la famille Beck, une famille au nom bien connu des fan de la 504 en France puisque Mme beck est la présidente émérite de l'Amicale 504! Je crois me souvenir que les parents possèdent les deux 504 grises clair, et que leur fils François possède les 2 autres... Ca nous fait un beau jardin, non??

This is the 504 Ti belonging to Alain P., from France. As you can see, it is in perfect shape! You can also notice a specific accessory which was very successful in the 71s : on the front side windows, you'll see a transparent plastic bubble which was supposed to reduce the wind noise (well, this is what I think it does...). And/or it may also allow the driver to open the window and get somefresh air without getting a strong wind inside the car... Does anyone knows if this is correct?

This nice 504 Break Diesel was the first owned by Sami, a french visitor of this site and true fan of the 504. He bought it in 1990, and had a lot of fun with it, as his quote in the guestbook will show you! Helas, the car was destroyed in an accident in 1995... But I'm sure Sami will sooner or later buy another one! The pic was taken in Tunisia, during holidays...

A great 504 coupe that Richard, a french visitor, had to sell. It is a 504 Coupé 2L (4 cylinders) injection, 1973 model, with black/grey leather, 160.000km. It's being used daily, and the body is in very good shape. Click on th picture to enlarge it, you'll see that it really looks nice!!

504 in France

This 504 coupe has been sent to me by a visitor of this site, Patrice. It is one of the most powerful 504 ever sold, a V6 TI 1978 (144 Hp). It seems to be in a real nice condition! Thanks for the photo!

504 in France

Here is a nice example of the fantastic look of the Dangel 4WD 504! What a beast! This really is a dream car for me! If ever you know somebody selling one for a nice price, email me! More seriously, the Dangels have a famous reputation in off road abilities, this photo gives a good idea about it, doesn't it?

504 in France

This is a very wellknown artistic realisation designed by Arman, a famous french artist. It is made of car wrecks and concrete. And you'll notice that in the middle of all these 70's cars, a 504 has been placed here for eternity.

504 in France

Here is a great drawing I scanned from a french magazine. I hope that the great artist, André Reix, won't mind! André thought of this 504 coupe for racing... in the same spirit as the Citroën DS 2 doors that was built for rallying in Africa. Looks good, doesn't it!!
Congratulations to André!

504 in France

I noticed this image on the first page of one of my french youth book (that's not recent, I know...) called intitulé "The speed". There was a train, a boat, a plane, a formula 1... and the 504, easily recognisable!!!

504 in France

A little gift from Tibo who is mainly sending me pictures from all over the world. This time it is simply in Aigues Mortes, beautiful village in the south of France. I must say I have no preference and it is not because it is a french one that I warmly thank the photographer. What matters to me is not the country but... the car, and their owners for sure. Free entrance!

504 in France

Here is not the first, not the second, not the third, not...but the sixth SW 504 of Jean- Michel. And what a SW for a sixth: a 4*4. The first one was in 1979, and JM was tripping to Africa, Republica of Benin to be precise. Now he has got children(bloody kids!!!) and it is time enough to settle a little bit. JM is thinking of selling his beautiful car but this certainly breaks a part of his adventurous heart. I think he won't do it, even under toture. The diesel engine has been reconditionned in 1997, and an extra-electric fan is plugged. The body is a bit rusty but the doors and the rear door are done. Cheer up Jean- Michel, do not let it go. You know how worth it is to drive such a car. Keep us posted and many thanks.

This is my pleasure to introduce Tibo and his superb sedan to all of you. You will certainly notice his name several times if you keep on surfing in the "504 around the world" section. His one of my biggest provider with amazing pictures from everywhere even from the opposite side of the earth for us frenchies, I mean Tahiti and New Caledonia. I couldn't afford the trip so let me thank Tibo very much and as you can see his way of driving in France couldn't be anything else but at the wheel of a 504. Cheers Pal!

Frederic has certainly capable hands. He his a country-cross moto pilot and he needed a truck to carry his motorbike from one track to the other. He found not only the use and performances of a truck but also the comfort and thrill of an outstanding car with this terrific pick-up 504(tell me if I am carried away by my feelings!). It was a wreck(hard for me to say that concerning my favourite car), and the pictures are here to testify. But with a good 504 base, everything is possible. Here is the starting point...

Only the new cars in the background reminds us that the beautiful 504 Gilles shot is not hardly coming out of the Peugeot factory in Sochaux. This one was actually parked in Toulouse, at the feet of the Pyrénées mountains(south of France) and in year...2002.

504 in France

Same remarquable shape for this other number shot in Montauban. Gilles is the author one more time and makes us remenber the time when the streets of France where filled with 504...sorry, I must stop, I can't go further... I am crying!

504 in France

George from Brannay, Yonne, wonderful part of the country of France, made a very esthetic picture of his coupe. No doubt the engine will start after one try. It is funny how 504 is a supermodel. Every kind of background suits a 504 in picture: a nice french farm, a street in Chile, a sand dune in Sahara, a rough way in Congo, a family in Indonesia, Hollywood mountains in California, seashore in Australia,..................................................

504 in France

Jean- Eric's new car. Happy man. 504 coupé 2l injection from Italy, lateral blinkers derogatory in Italy, Pirelli alloy wheels... It is obviously worth sometimes to look at the foreign style even if you are from the birth place of a car. But remember that the coupé and the convertible were designed by Pininfarina, so they were already half Italian to some extent.

504 in France

Yvan is sending this 2 pictures I find very nice. The sunset, a bit of bush and a sandy road. Plus this 504 in really good shape. You can notice a few details if you click on the pictures such as the masked rear lights and the "american" front lights, unsual in France.

Corsica

504 in Corsica

OK, I know it'll be hard, but if you concentrate just one second, you might be able to stop admiring the gorgious girl and/or the muscled play-boy on that photo, and then you'll see the 504 behind them! Yep!
My friends M. and F. went in Corsica for holidays, and when they saw this 504 in Bonifacio, they took the time to take a picture of it! Thanks a lot for that, dudes! I'm sure everybody will agree : a beautiful background, a lovely middlground and a sexy foreground, this photo has everything!

In the very cute village of Porto Vecchio, south of the wonderful Island of Corsica (South to France), I discovered this WONDERFUL 504. It really is like new !! Dated from 1978, the painting is perfect, with tainted glasses, unused interior, etc.. it was like a dream ! I even left a message to its owner (Do you sell it ???), but I didn't get any answer up to now... But gosh ! THAT is a nice 504, trust me!


Austria

504 in Austria

I found this photo of a 504 convertible from Austria while surfing on the web. His owner Heinrich saw it here, and emailed me some information about it! It is a 1977 V6 cabriolet. It's the No. 768, out of 970 which have been produced. It has been restaured in 1998 and is looking perfect (except the seats which are worn, says Heinrich...). And Heinrich is also the vice-chairman of the Austrian Peugeot club! Congratulations, and keep up the good job!



Belgium

504 in Belgium

Introducing Steven from Belgium and pictures of 504 from there for the first time. Surprising when you know that Belgium is a border country from the native place of Peugeot. However, great thanks to Steven to inaugurate this section with this very good-looking SW 504 and his typical 3 rows of seats. Next step would be to tell us more about the place, specifications and use you had of it, if it is yours?! Congratulations and keep us the good job!

Steven again has really decided to hit a good smack for his first time at 504.org. Look at that Dangel. The colour is remakable, even in the middle of other colourful cars. But you can only see one, because of the massive size, the extraordinary height, the power it makes you feel, the exceptionnal design of it. One more time, tell us more: how far went this car with such tyres? Across Asia or simply wallony or the flamish country? Where did you spot it? If ever you had some information about it, please keep us posted and cheers until the next time.

504 in Cyprus

If you have been surfing on this website for quite a while and now discovering "504 in europe" you might have seen Tangi 's name before. He is one of my regular supplier for 504 pictures all around the world. This french pal and 504 addict has moved to Cyprus. Thanks to him I am able to create this new section that was missing. For an opening, I had to select for you his own 504 GL 1977, bought as second hand, less than 124 000 miles and in excellent condition. No complaining and even less when you will notice that Tangi is driving to mountains during his WEs to go skiing!!! Look at the picture, it is perfect and should turns you quite made for jealousy. As far I am concerned: I am!

504 in Cyprus

First of a serie that make this new section sensible. A rare 504 Durisotti with its right hand sterring wheel. The car is quite ill but it is so fine to feel like we were walking in the streets of Nicosia thanks to Tangi again.

504 in Cyprus

Tangi one more time has spotted this white sedan(apparently a common colour in Cyprus) close to a UN car. Which is helping the most human kind?

504 in Cyprus

Surprise!!! This last 504 has been shot by Tangi, an example to follow. I think I am going to change my "504.org" copyright into a "Tangi something". What do you recon?

My first photo of an english 504! This 1978 Right-Hand drive GL model, with an automatic gearbox, has been bought by Stuart Bird in 2000, and it really looks in perfect shape!
Stuart is a real 504 addict (and a regular visitor of this site! :-)) ), and he looked quite a while on the market to find a RHD 504 in good shape, which seems to be rather hard in the rather rainy part of Europe! He finally decided to gof or that very healthy one, even though he wanted at first to get a Ti model.
Let's make it clear Stuart, I do think you made the right choice, as rust is a real problem with the 504! Of course, you have a bit less power, but it was surely worth to avoid having hard work to do on the car body...
And, of course, thanks for sending me the photos, Stuart!

This is the picture of Vesa Rautakoura's 504, in Finland. As he wrotes me: "the 504 is kind of rare car back there, and very rare driven by young guy like him (20 years old)! It's a 504 GLD built in 1977. It has 1.95 litre Indenor diesel engine."
Let's add that the yellow Peugeot Lion front sign wouldn't be that model in France, since the Lion was changed in 1976... Maybe it was changed later in finland??

504 in Finland

Welcome to the 1976 504 of Crisu. He is only 18 and happy owner of this originaly blue painted car. He learns to drive with the gears at the steering wheel. Not bad, hey? Crisu ignores how many times the meter has gone around but this is an habit for 504 drivers. At last, he would like to have it with a new painting. Feel free and enjoy but you can certainly re-do the original type if you wish. Just ask the good person...!


Germany

504 in Germany

This is the very nice 504 cab from Norbert Kansy, inWuppertal. Dated from 1982, this car was first "given as the 40th anniversary birthdays present to the wife of a small Peugeot dealer"! Norbert had to promise to take good care of this car and that he would not use it during winter! Well, it seems that this is a pretty good solution to avoid the rust, isn't it?? And special thanks to Norbert again, for his photo of an incredible double cabin in China!! (see the asian page...)

504 in Germany

Thanks to Norbert Kansy, again, here is one beautiful 504 pick-up. Produced in 1990, the outside is in perfect condition, and this blue painting looks great. But the best comes with the invisible modification that Ralph, his owner, has made to it : this pick up runs with the engine of a 2.0 TI 504 (106 horsepower), and a 5 speed gearbox, which is placed below the steering wheel, like any normal pick up!!! Adding to this, Ralph placed electrical windows. Nice pick-up to travel, isn't it? And it can carry up to 1120kg of loading!!
Notice the "504" number plate, and the Peugeot logo on the side!

Here are two german 504, during a Peugeot meeting.
You can notice with the 2 different fronts (lion, calandre, blinkers) that the first one is a pre-76 version, while the second is a past-76 version.

504 in Germany In a big library of german cliparts, sold in 12 Cd-Rom (!), I found this drawing. Although the name of this clipart was just "SationWagoon", I do believe that this is a 504, isn't it ?

504 in Germany

"Salut Jeff!My french is not that good, so I will write in english. I bought a 504GL Automatic, build in 1979 last weekend. For a car that is 22 yearsold, it's in a fantastic shape. It has been driven by an old man almost 20 years and has spent original 122.000 km on the road. Even thebody-parts show just a little bit of rust. Bye,Michael"... this is good summary of what the situation is in northern Europe when you have the good idea to get a 504. The story of the old man, the young man, and the wonderful car with just a little bit of rust but in fantastic shape!

504 in Germany

Introducing Josef in his homeland section with his 504 pickup camper. The 504 is from 1982, the "Bimobil" cabin from 1984. All packed and ready for a 4 000 Kms holiday trip to Norway. I must tell you this is not Josef's first try. If you want to check what he was doing in 1976, meet at the "Turkiye" and "Yugoslavia" sections! Already 504, already on the road! Full respect.


Greece

504 in Greece

This is a 504 GR sent to me by Tangi, the webmaster of the excellent site on the Renault 14 and 18 (see my links!). Tangi, who is a great photo provider for the 504.org, took this picture in Igoumenitsa, located in the North-West of Greece, during the great trip he did in year 2000 from paris to Istanbul in his Renault 18.
You'll notice the alloy wheels, I don't know anything about these, maybe they are specific to Greece? Or maybe they were taken from another car...

Here is the 504 convertible from Willem Bergkotte. These photos have been taken before the restauration of the car. As you can see, this 504 is a first generation model, with the double headlights. But the rear lights are from the second generation models... Of course, Willem has changed them back to the normal lights during te restoration!
One other detail has attracted my attention : on the rear aisle, you can notice a "reflecting" rectangle, which doesn't exist on the french versions. This looks like american cars!! Was this placed on all 504s sold in Holland?
Willem promised to send the photos after the restoration... be patient!!
Netherlands
504 in the Netherland Look at what you can carry with a 504! For the passioned guys, the wreck is an Iso Rivolta... But here, we are more concerned about Marvin's red 504! "I own a 504 too and I'm also nuts about it! It was my grandfathers car and he bought it new in 1979. The car is a 504 GL Automatique. I looks great but is in need of a little restoration. There is some work on the engine: my grandfather used to run the car on unleaded fuel because it was cheaper and now the valves are in bad shape. It was restored 5 years ago but the guy who did it just painted over the rust. It looked great for a year and now there are blisters on the doors. There also rust in other usual 504 places. As you know they rust like hell." Yes, right, they do rust, but even when a bit rusty, they still look great! And they run and run and run...

Martjin is living in the Netherlands. He had no connection with that kind of car in the past, his parents never had one, and he certainly never thought he would drive one some day. But miracles happen. Imported from France in 2000, destiny was to make the driver and the sedan to meet. Martjin is the new owner of this light green/blue 504 GL 1975 and would never change it according to him. The only thing we can do is congratulate and welcome this new northern 504 addict and our wish is to be kept posted about your new source of delight. I swear you are not alone in that case!!! Thanks for the pictures: this car definetely holds inside the promises she does from outside. Lucky Pal!

Listen to what Peter tells us. Maybe a few of you, websurfers and friends, have heard that a book dedicated to the 504 was realeased in 2001 here in France. "La 504 de mon père"(the 504 of my father) is a very charming and sincere book filled with plenty of pictures, some coming from 504.org and my personnal collection. Peter received it as a present and is now translating it from french to dutch. When he will finish this tough work, he wonders if I could put it online on this website. Well I must say that I really appreciate your confidence and if it can help to widespread the dream of 504 among the dutch speaking people, I am your man! His signature for that first contact was a picture of his own 504 1976, ordered before the salon of 1976, which explains that the grille is a 1977 one. Otherwise it is a 2 liters automatic, with leather interior and a brand new painting but made out of the original type of colour. Again thank you to this new dutch friend and ... I am expecting some fresh news from you soon!
Netherlands What you can see in the Netherlands as far as 504 is concerned. Special thanks to Ton who is sending this, and who personnaly bought a 504 in Malaysia in 1996. The first time he saw one was 25 years before in his village, and it was the doctor's car. Such a healthy car.
Netherlands Member of the Association Peugeot Holland and of the Veenendaalse Oldtimer Club, Evert is not lying when he says he likes authentic cars, especially Peugeot. He owns not only a 504GR 1980 but also a 403 B7 Luxe Confort, 1964. Evert spends his holidays in France and from time to time drives his family there with the 504. I also got a picture of the 403 which is amazing, but sorry Evert, here is only "504 VIP" area. Cheers!

Reunion Island (F)

504 in  Reunion Island

Here is a wonderful photo of a very specific 504 : it's a Dangel (4wd), used by the firemen in the Reunion. With such cars, they can surely reach any point in the Island, no doubt about it! I'd like to thank F Vitteaud, a visitor of my site who sent me this great picture! He also told me the sad part of the story : the Dangels are slowly but surely replaced by some japanese pick ups, and they are sold for peanuts in Madagascar... The only positiove point about this is that I plan to visit Madagascar in November,, so, I will maybe finally own a Dangel?!? What a dream!


Spain

504 in Spain

This is a 504 sent by Sangil, a spanish visitor from La Coruña. Nice eyes, hmm? I don't have any information about this one, except that it has a 1.8l engine. I'll try to know some more!!


Scotland

504 in Scotland

A nice right hand drive 504 pick-up spotted in a scottish village by Matthieu and Sandra, my good fellows (thanks, buddies!). This pick-up is rather recent as you can notice (plastic rears mirrors, wheels look, recent peugeot logo), and its bumper is rather...protective!!!

Hard to believe what you can do on a 504 base. Johan opens our eyes with this very unique pick-up 504. I don't have many informations on how he managed to do such a surprising work but just click on the pictures and track the details down.

Yugoslavia

504 inYugoslavia

The owner of the nice 504, Milos Radovic, sent me these 2 photos from Belgrade. He wrote me that the 504 survived to the bombing very well, which you can state with these photos! It's a 504 GR, built in 1981. And the best : it has 592.345 km!!!! The 504 nevers stops, I can tell you!!
Thanks, Milos!

Josef from Germany sent me 2 amazing pictures of his 1976 trip to Teheran. One is here, the other one in the "Turkiye section". I am expecting new stuff about it for I am really keen on that way to show 504. Solid, long distance capability, friendship, adventure...international!
