Question

Nishan.dj    73

Hi guys,

I am hunting for Peugeot 504 and got 2 cars. One is a GL one and other is L.  I didn't see L version anywhere but the GL. This is the only L version I found.

I am confused with these two versions. 

The L version has it's own AC system where GL doesn't have and currently hang on type is attached to front. 

Could you guys help me decide which one to buy based on,

Parts availability on L version compared to GL because I like the L Version Dashboard.

The L version doesn't have rear disc brakes but GL does.

Thanks and appreciate your replies.

Don't be fool'd by the badges

As the car would have had approx 40 years to get re-badged many times.

the GL also has independant rear suspension.

You must get a decent runner first. Upgrade the odds and ends after.

Here is the differences I noticed.

  • The GL has 4 disc brakes & L has front disc and rear drum
  • GL has no ac vents but L has original ac vents (I guess)
  • GL dashboard is better looking than L (square meters)
  • Both has 1.8 engines

But I don't know about suspension and other stuff.

504s were manufactured from  years 1968 to 1983. Your dashboards show earlier and new versions. Hope that the  below photo is from the  later manufactured model , say close to 1980. Probably the registration numbers  reveal that,  6-8 SRI vs 11-13 SRI etc.

To update you guys,

I paid a visit for both cars and none of them are good enough to buy. The reason is they lack many interior parts yet priced for a high amount. Nevertheless, the body and interior parts are very important to me as I am restoring it to it's original condition. 

I learnt a lot by visiting 504s now. That is worth still. :D
