The Peugeot 504 Coupé and convertible is a sports car produced by Peugeot in France from 1969 to 1983.
Both versions are presented in March 1969 .At the beginning of August 1983, the manufacture of the 504 Coupé and Cabriolet ended at its designer Pininfarina, in Italy.The design is the work of Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina . Contrary to the constraints set for the 403 cabriolet, Pininfarina was able to resolutely move away from the sedan lines by basing the two versions, coupé and cabriolet, on a new platform that resumed that of the sedan but with a wheelbase from 2.74 m .
The Coupé version The grille of the first series has four rectangular lights. The Cabriolet version differs only in the roof, which is replaced by a black canvas hood.
In September 1974, the 504 Coupé and Cabriolet benefited from a slight restyage at the front lights (a single optics grouping the two rectangular lights) and rear (also grouped under a single elongated element). The upholstery is also modified.
The 504 Coupé and Cabriolet are only available, when launched, with a single engine, the Peugeot 1.8 liter with Kugelfischer mechanical injection (pump KF6, PL 004.104.03), developing a power of 97 hp DIN (103 SAE). As for all coupes / cabriolets of the brand, derived from sedans, 203, 403, 404 and 204, Peugeot decides to reuse the same engine as that of the sedan (in this case the XM-KF 6). The transmission is provided by a manual 4-speed gearbox and the lever is on the floor.
At the end of the year 1970, the XM-KF5 engine (1.8 l) was replaced by a 2.0-liter engine (the XN) still with mechanical injection developing 104 hp, which is also mounted on the sedan. A 3-speed automatic transmission is available as an option; but in 1973, this option is only available on the Coupe version.In September 1974, the 504 Coupé and Cabriolet adopted the 2.664cc V6 PRV engine with carburettors, developing 136 hp. The 2-liter engine disappears. The automatic transmission remains an option reserved for the only Coupé.
- 1.8L injection 103 bhp at 5600 rpm.
Sales decline because a large part of the clientele does not accept the cost of purchase and above all the operation of the V6 PRV with prohibitive consumption (from 18 to 20 liters per 100 km). As a result, in 1978, the manufacturer comes back on its choices and proposes again a version equipped with the engine 2 liters injection of 106 hp. Peugeot took the opportunity to finally endow the V6 version of the injection to significantly reduce consumption while raising the power to 144 hp with a 5-speed mechanical gearbox. Versions equipped with the 2-liter engine can always only have a 4-speed gearbox. In 1980, Peugeot brings a very slight cosmetic touch of the grille with a more enveloping bumper. Mechanical side, the old 4-speed gearbox is finally abandoned and replaced by the box 5 in all versions 2 liters. In 1981, the V6 Coupe has new alloy wheels.

The coupé and cabriolet versions of the 504 were produced, with the exception of the transmission and suspension, in the Pininfarina factory in Turin . From there, the semi-finished vehicles were transported by train to Sochaux for final assembly, where the engine, transmission and suspension were assembled.
504 RivieraIn September 1971 at the Paris Motor Show , the Pininfarina booth unveiled a concept called Riviera. It takes again the design of the 504 Coupé and Cabriolet. The 504 Sport Coupe USA :Code named "project E27", this coupe was designed and intended to be marketed in the United States in March 1982, but "the financial difficulties of Peugeot and the too large share of risk in the US market led to the abandonment of project E27. This coupe owes its design to Pininfarina, and is equipped with a V6 injection 121 horsepower or a 2.2-liter turbo compressed 165 horsepower. A prototype was able to exceed the 205 km / h mark in 1979 .
