Yellow Peugeot 304 S Cabriolet from 1972 with four cylinders, 1228 cc, 75 HP. Top speed: 160 km/h

The Peugeot 304 is a small family car manufactured and marketed by the French manufacturer Peugeot from 1969 to 1980.

The 304 was introduced to the public at the Paris Motor Show in September 1969. Production of the saloon/sedan on the Sochaux assembly lines was discontinued during the summer of 1979, while the “Break” (estate / station wagon) was manufactured until the spring of 1980. The 304 fit into the 7CV tax category, one step above its little sister the 204 (6CV) and significantly below the 9CV 404.

The 304 was a success for Peugeot and was noted for its Pininfarina styled exterior; It was marketed until 1980 and was replaced by the Peugeot 305, which was launched in 1977, still based on the Peugeot 204 with which it shared many components. The chassis lasted for approximately 24 years when derivative models (the 204 and 305) are included.
