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.
Listed on ebay July 2015 with an asking price of £1600. Described as 'for restoration' and said by the seller to be in original condition with no previous restoration works. Off road for at least 20 years.
26/09/1975 Off Road, Tax expired Sept 1985
This is a very rare beast - a 1971 (non-S) Cab in Orange - a factory option colour much favoured by Peugeot in their 1970s marketing. It has a later registration date. Being restored perhaps?

This 304 was spotted going into a classic car show, but other than that (and the fact that it looks well cared for) no other information is known. With many thanks to CarSpotterUK for photograph.
Pick up a copy of Your Classic Magazine, June 1992, and you can read the fascinating story of this Isle of Wight Pug's full restoration. Sold for just £2400 through Brooklands auction (2006). With thanks to Robert Knight for pics 1 & 2.
With thanks to Janette Beech for photos 1 and 2 (taken in Stockton on tees in the 80s, she describes 'amazing, A1 condition') and to Robert Knight for photo 3. I'd love to know the significance of the number 22.
01/04/1974. Off Road, MOT expired Oct 2008
PLJ 194M was featured on the front cover of 'Practical Classics' in July 2007, and used for a favourable review of alternative soft-top classics. But it's MOT expired the following year. Where is it now?
I love it when cabs are used - the owner of this lovely Corn Yellow 304 tells me it was used to drive his new wife to their wedding reception :). It has also made appearances at the Goodwood Revival Festival.
DVLA suggests this 304 is gold, but it is pictured in white in 2008 before a respray to Citreon SM Green (floor pan rebuilt at the same time). Alloy wheels and red seats make this pug distinctive. Thanks to Ed Keefe & Alan Gold for info/images.
Another stunning 304 that looks well loved and in very good order, judging by these images taken in 2010 and 2016. Beautifully polished and presented in the ever distinctive Corn Yellow.
Pictured on the road in February 2015. This 304 is missing a hub cap, but fortunately these are available relatively cheaply. Lose a rear light cluster and that's a different story! With thanks to eyair for images.

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.
