NOTES :

 

In the UK, Metallic Beige is typically referred to as Gold, Metallic Grey as Silver, and Saffron as Orange. There was also a lighter blue in 1970-71.

 

* The red 304s include one that has been resprayed as a two tone red and white cab.

 

** Non-standard colours, so it is likely the cars have been resprayed unless a special order was placed at purchase. The colours may or may not be from the Peugeot palette - for example, Peugeot offered 'Amaranthus Red' on some non-Cabriolet 304s, but not the Cabriolets.

 

Where a car is known to have been resprayed, I have included it with its current colour (not as it may have left the factory). It is possible the resprayed colour does not exactly match the original peugeot spec, and I've highlighted the obvious cases.

PAINT CODES

It appears Peugeot renumbered their paint codes at some stage between 1973 and 1975. Where shown, the first 4-digit code is from documents dated 1973, the second 3-digit code is from documents dated 1975. The colour should be the same - only the paint code number changed.

Peugeot 304 and 304S Cabriolet / 1970s French Classic Car / Record of UK models.

Since the law changed in 2018, almost all 304 Cabriolets are exempt from both MOT tests and tax. It is therefore impossible to use DVLA records to see if a particular 304 is 'one the road' or laid up. These figures are a moth-balled snap shot of the situation in 2015 - 2018. It is reasonable to assume that as the years go by, some off road 304s will be restored to roadworthy condition, and others will retire from active duty. I guess you could say they're all roadworthy given they don't need an MOT! Anyway, the on road / off road figures will not be updated in the future.
