The Peugeot 504 was Peugeot's flagship model between 1968 and 1983.
The 504 was a classic four-door saloon with sun-roof and was crowned 'European Car of the Year' in 1969, praised for its styling, quality, chassis, ride, visibility, strong engine and refinement.
In addition to the 4-door saloon, versions included an estate (SW), a 2-door coupe, a 2-door cabriolet and even a 504 Pick-Up.
In 1979, although the 504 was still in production, the 505 was introduced, and that eventually succeeded the 504 and continued until 1992.
For a while, the '50' series was discontinued and the model was indirectly replaced by the 406, which was subsequently replaced in 2004 by the 407. In Spring 2011 the '40' series was discontinued too, and the model was replaced by the Peugeot 508, bringing back the '50' series to the Peugeot range.
