Peugeot 304 Cabriolet

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

The Peugeot 304 was a rather dashing thing in its day, with plenty of cutting-edge thinking beneath its Pininfarina-penned skin. Its independent suspended front-wheel-drive layout and disc brakes meant that it rode and stopped better than many far more expensive offerings, while the all-alloy four-cylinder engines were hardy and eager. The crisp styling has really stood the test of time as well, particularly in the guise of the elegant two-seater cabriolet.
This 1975 example was parked in the paddock at Goodwood's Soft-Top Sunday-themed Breakfast Club back in May 2013, and was generating a lot of interest from the crowds - rightly so, as it was pristine - and on sale for a very reasonable £7,000.

It was also due to appear on Top Gear in March 2015 with James May behind the wheel, before the remainder of the series got canned thanks to Clarksongate. So, er... here are some photos of it instead. Almost as good.
