At a glance guide to the survivng Peugeot 304s in the UK.

 

Note: These stats are based on my research and the 304s I've found. It is quite likely there are a few more hidden away that I haven't yet discovered (I certainly hope so!).

UK RIGHT HAND DRIVE PEUGEOT 304 CABRIOLETS VALUE GUIDE

The Peugeot 304 Cabriolet remains a relatively cheap classic car to buy. However prices have been on an upward path over the past few years. Although this makes purchases more expensive, it does also mean protection of your investment. One reason for the increase might be the tax exemption - the 40 year rule means that most 304's have switched from 'PLG' class to 'Historic Vehicle' class in the past few years. The valuations shown on this site are for general guidance only based on my interest in 304s and my observations of sale prices since I became a 304 owner. They are not official valuations and you should make your own judgements. Any sale price will depend completely on the condition of the individual car, and most 40 year old cars will have a chequered history. It would not surprise me if the handful of very best 304s will be attracting a £10,000+ price tag in the coming years - as indeed they already do in other parts of Europe. £8995 is the highest asking price I've seen to date in the UK for a UK registered RHD car (January 2016 and August 2017). Some LHD imports have been advertised on ebay UK during 2017 for in excess of £12k, and I make no comment about the seller's asking price for those cars.

FOR PARTS : Barn finds that are severely past it and not economical to restore, but have parts that can be used to restore another 304.

 

FOR RESTORORATION : Cars with no MOT and significant mechanical and body work issues but that could be restored to fair or better condition.

 

FAIR: With MOT but otherwise tatty bodywork, rust problems, significant mechanical issues and with several replacement parts that are either not original or the incorrect type.

 

GOOD : With MOT and generally in presentable order. Some further restoration of bodywork/mechanicals is desirable but not essential.

 

VERY GOOD: A well maintained car with MOT and in little or no need of further restoration or mechanical work other than regular servicing. Presentable enough for show entry with only minor defaults.

 

EXCELLENT : With MOT and in exceptional condition - either in superb original order, or having been professionally and fully restored.

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.

** These are non-standard colours, so it is likely the cars have been resprayed in later life 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.
