    Peugeot 404 VIN registry

    Submitted today at the Register website: 6800367, Cabriolet Injection, 17 février 1967, Blanc Saratoga 1031 (Blanc Arosa??), Cuir Noir 2000, Bought from first owner, partially restored, soft top needs replacement, missing two driving lights in grille, COUTERNON FRANCE (no photo) Total : 2215
  2. Oops, the price is $5000, not 6000. Or a bit more with tax, plus $100 more for the seat heaters.
  3. Something weird is going on with the last photo but the link works....
  4. There's not a lot more to see - they're very simple seats..... Heating element cord for the backrest....adjustment knobs for backrest angle and their stops. Side view. Underneath - new bands and foam visible, as well as the seat cushion heating element cord.
  5. I will see him tomorrow and ask, but he's a home-based business so I don't know how well connected to Seattle upholsters he will be. Our dollar is cheap now. Mind you, all seats plus headliner are 6 grand CAD.
  6. The front seats have been reupholstered by Geoff Chrysler. Very nice: natural grain dyed through light grey "Hyde" brand leather, with heating elements (I'll need a better alternator than it came with to power that!). Parts of the headliner (also redone by Geoff) are visible in the foreground. His next task is redoing the rear bench, which has a fold-down armrest. I may get the parts in the photo this coming Monday.

    Thanks to the 404 Club members in France who got these numbers for me: 4594799, Carrosserie 6468, Coupé Injection 1965, Gris Clair, Int. Noir, For sale April 2019, 9900 €, carbureted engine, much body corrosion, VERSAILLES FRANCE 4670285, Cabriolet Carburateur 1968, Noir 1000, Cuir Rouge, Auctioned in Avignon, restored, AVIGNON FRANCE Total: 2214 !
  8. The handbrake cable and control were assembled and mounted today, along with the pedal box. The worst part of the whole operation was discovering that the buttress under the driver's side, which is a Peugeot original, has a captive stud that is about 6 mm too short to hold the metal handbrake sheath under the driver's floor. So I had to remove the brass clamp and reduce its thickness by about 3 mm on both sides using a Dremel and files (good old engineering on this part, with massive redundancy) in order to get it on. The pedal box was dead easy of course and the stuff under the car was as well.

    6801078, Cabriolet Injection, 01 mai 1967, GERMANY 4670597, Cabriolet Carburateur, mai 1968, Blanc Arosa 1132, Cuir Noir 2000, For sale March 2019, 39,250 Euros at Hans LAMMERS B.V., MIJDRECHT NETHERLANDS 4594055, Coupé Injection 1965, SARTROUVILLE FRANCE Total: 2212 !
  10. I finally got the steering column mounted. Instead of the flector I used a Paulstra Septor for the pinion link.
  11. A spare new old stock window winder for the 404C. There are two good (I think they are!) used ones in the car, so this is my reserve.
  12. Yes, that is part of the plan. In the 404 KF2, the alternator is buried deep on the exhaust side and can't be seen at all from above, so a non-original one will be quite OK. The original is 400W. I'm aiming for over a kW.
  13. ...the seats will be fitted with heating elements..... And.... I bought a different set of rubber isolators for the wiper motor and drive, because it's in a colour that more closely matches the latex rubber original. The pale red ones in the photo will be used in the 404C and the others will be spare parts. All the red ones are in what seems to be silicone rubber so should handily outlive the originals.
