Peugeot 404 (Convertible/ Coupé) (1962–1969)

The Peugeot 404 is a large family car produced by French automobile manufacturer Peugeot from 1960 to 1975. Styled by Pininfarina, the 404 was offered initially as a saloon. Break, commerciale, and seven-seat Family estate versions followed. 

The Peugeot 404 cabriolet/ convertible made its first appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October 1961, and the accompanying coupé version was launched six months later. The 404 coupé is introduced with the same body as the cabriolet but with a fixed roof. They were made by the Pinin Farina workshops in Turin. Only the floorpan and mechanical elements were shared with the saloon. The 2-door 404s are longer and wider than the saloon versions, sharing not a single body panel with the saloons. 17,223 were built - both variants included. Roughly 6,000 examples were coupés. Units built from 1967 had new dashboard with three round dials.

These models were initially powered by the same single carburetter engine as the saloon and the option of a fuel injected engine (XCKF1) with a Kugelfischer injection system was added to the range at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1962. Maximum speed: 167 km/h (104 mph) (fuel injected KF2 404 Cabriolet and Coupé). 

The US$3,899 price in 1965 put the convertible in the same price bracket as the Jaguar E-Type in the American market. (wikipedia,
