  2. New rubber parts for the wiper motor: Instrument panel connected - the wiring as built in my car is very different than the wiring diagram: The instrument panel installed. Ventilator switch is now mounted on the dashboard rather than the SOFICA heater box:

    Peugeot 404 VIN registry

    Perusing the oldest bulletins of Le Club 404, two more "known" 404 Cabriolets were discovered. The information is from 1982/83, so it's a bit stale, and there is no assurance that the cars still exist. I expect the stolen one was broken up for parts shortly after. 6803140, Cabriolet Injection, 04 juin 1968, stolen in May 1982, Brown Metallic, Black Leather 2000, Hard top in golden colour, stolen 23 June 1982, BECON-LES-BRUYERES FRANCE 6800465, Cabriolet Injection, 20 février 1967, NORD FRANCE Total: 2203 !

    Peugeot Festival 2019

    Shame I'm leaving Britain about 6 weeks before then
  6. No I left the clock alone. Unlike the two other ones I have, the face of this one is not corroded and IIRC it works. These clocks were mechanical and had electric winders, which wind them all at once.
  7. When the 404C goes back on the road, it will be with this - its original instrument panel. I tidied it up yesterday - took it apart, cleaned it, repainted the fuel tank and temperature gauge needles. The car was sold when new in Canada, hence the MPH speedometer. The 120 MPH scale was particular to the Injection version. The car came with an alternator so the "battery" gauge is a thermal voltmeter. The sports instrument panel I have the equipment for will go in once the car has been on the road for a while.

    Good job. The wipers could well need the axles lubricated. On my 404C they were ridiculously dry and super SLOW. I got new ones.
  12. Not the same at all: the Peugeot rad has hard sides and it twice as thick. 404 was introduced 15 years before the Niva. Which in turn got its core from a Fiat 124.
  13. Voilà! Wiper nozzles mounted. Tough to get those on a C after the heater unit is in. On a sedan it's no problem
  14. Together at last: 6 Jaeger France gauges in MPH and degrees F ( but the oil pressure is in bar - luckily I am bilingual ) plus the 5 original warning lights that make up part of the sports instrument panel for the 404 Coupé and Cabriolet. Now I have to get two or three of these gauges refurbished and have a metal plate to hold them made up.
  15. The entire wiper mechanism and heater is exactly like that of the 404 sedan, so they're not locally sourced. The wiper shafts are longer though, but still made by SEV Marchal. The heater is by SOFICA.
