Cohort Outtake: Peugeot 404 – Still My Beating Heart – And Our 404 Portal


Christmas has arrived early at the CC Cohort. It’s awash in toys of the most varied kind from all over the world. But how can I resist this lovely 404, shot by Yohai Rodin? I can stare at this Pininfarina shape for…longer than I should, as the longing only gets greater. Yes, for those of you more recent arrivals, I once owned half a dozen 404s, and have written up my love stories here (links at end of this post).


This is a very nice example, and appears to be from 1970 or later, as it has the vented wheels and small hub caps, held on by a center bolt, of course. It’s just one of many little details that make Peugeots compelling. One can’t be losing hubcaps or wheel covers when bashing through the African outback.

Here’s all of the CC 404 love:
