The Peugeot 404 is a lairge family caur produced bi the French automobile manufacturer Peugeot frae 1960 tae 1975, wi the exception o the truck which wis sold until 1988. It wis also made unner licence in various African kintras until 1991 (in Kenya).
Designed bi Pininfarina, the 404 wis offered as a sedan, estate, an (frae 1967) pickup. A convertible wis added in 1962, an a coupé in 1963. The 404 wis fitted wi a 1.6 L petrol ingine, with either a Solex carburetor or Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection or a 1.9 L diesel ingine available as options. Introduced at the Paris Motor Show as an option wis the inclusion o a 3-speed ZF automatic transmission, similar tae the unit already offered on certain BMW models, as an alternative tae the standard column-mounted manual unit.
Popular as a taxicab, the 404 enjoyed a reputation for durability an value. Peugeot's French production run o 1,847,568 404s ended in 1975. Still relatively common in developin naitions (especially in pickup form), an additional 2,885,374 units wur produced unner license until 1988.
