This car was restored by us to customer specifications that included a complete strip down, fabrication of new panels and metal work where required, full rebuild of all running gear, refurbished interior, refurbished carburettor, refurbished/new engine ancillaries, new hood, new rubber seals all round and a high quality respray in the original Peugeot metallic gris (code 1321). The important bits have all been done properly and the result is stunning and she is incredible to drive and will keep up with modern traffic no problem with the manual gear change working smoothly. A photographic record has been kept and there is a photobook to accompany the car, which shows the original condition and the strip down and rebuild. This must be one of the finest Peugeot 304 Cabriolets in the UK.
