A purple 304? Or is it dark blue? Not an original colour, but a good one. The colour, the thin white stripe and the front fogs set it apart; very nice. Sold through H&H Auctions for a seemingly modest £1850 in June 2000.
This striking Cab sold with tax and MOT in 2011 after a respray to red, and probably close to the £4000 asking price. With just 3 owners from new, it had fetched £2000 at a Brightwells auction earlier that year.
Probably one of the best and most original 304s in the UK. This excellent example was advertised with a rare full documented history (see video). It was also used in a Stella Artois TV advert, where they had head rest issues! (View here).
I've seen this Cab in the flesh, as the owner lives close by. It's in super condition, and appears from time to time in classic car shows in Norfolk. A lovely, well kept 304S in original Corn Yellow.
I owned this car for 10 years since 2007, so I know it well. Sold in 2017 to a buyer in Yorkshire as a 50th birthday gift, I wish the new owners many happy journeys. Read feature article here.
This neglected and very rusty 304S was rescued from a Gosport scrapyard. Later, in 2012, it was purchased as a 'barn find' (one of two) by a potential restorer, but he moved it on soon after. I wonder what's become of it.
This is arguably the most famous 304 in the UK. Valued at around £7k in 2013, it was featured in the BBC's last ever Clarkson Top Gear in 2015. Made in 1974, with a later first registered date.
This little beauty is called 'Edith'. If you'd like to know why, find out at OurClassicCars. Engine rebuild & unleaded conversion. Two tone seats. Described as '100% show worthy' by the owner when advertised for sale Aug 2017.
An S model, with a non-S earlier grille and unusual two-tone respray. The red and white looks excellent, complimented by white wall tyres. Advertised as 'good condition' for £3500, date unknown. One I'd like to own :)

NOTE TO OWNERS OF UK 304s
If you own a 304 Cabriolet and would like to tell me a little more about it, I'd love to hear from you. I would be happy for this site to evolve into a proper resource / registry of UK 304s, and I can add a feature page for your car. Thank you to owners who've been in touch so far. If your car is pictured on this site and you don't want it to be, let me know and I'll remove it.

The current owners of YTA 231L purchased this 304S in Norfolk in 2002. Although off road for several years, they describe the car as garaged, well loved and ready to have her day again :)

To the best of my knowledge there are just over 100 RHD Peugeot 304 Cabriolets left in the UK, about half of which are on the road. Listings show the date of first registration and car's status ('On the Road" = taxed and MOT'd 1st July 2015 or later). It is quite possible that a few more exist that I haven't discovered yet.
