404 cabriolet

Berichtdoor stephan » 26 mei 2009, 19:30

Dear Mike,

I found mine in your chassisnr list. It is a 1966 convertible nr 4598280, injection, color blue mendoza. I imported it from france in 1998.
Probably it has been in the french list because the previous owner was a member overthere.
As being the chairman of the dutch 404 club I am really interested in your attempt to find the remaining 404 C models.
It would be great to receive a copy of your list.
If I can be of any assistance please let me know.

Best regards,
Stephan van Sante

Another 404 Cabriolet has been discovered, this time in Australia:

4499146

It was imported from the USA and restored, repainted grey metallic and converted to right hand steering.

Another serial number for Germany has been discovered: 6800245, however the car is not registered as such, but rather as 4590835, which is of course totally wrong for the car. Plus it's been converted from a Coupé to a Cabriolet if you can believe that, and also has an automatic gearbox.

So now we know the fate of 1370 404 C cars. 4590835 was scrapped and its numbers are in use on 6800245.

Another Dutch car was identified today: 4598859, a cabriolet that has just emerged from a total restoration!

The total is now 1371 cars, with 78 of those being Dutch.

I can imagine that...the body of my cabriolet is terrible! Typical dutch?

I didn't find any paint at the inside of the body, only a lot of rust and worst repairs.

While I am still waiting for the 80th Dutch 404 C to report, there is a new one I've found in Finland, a 1965 Coupé that was originally Gris Graphite but is now Blanc Arosa, plus it has a post-1966 nose on the car!

Serial number: 4498318

Worldwide total in this census = 1373 404 C cars.

This is the second Finnish car in the census and there are two more that I will be receiving the numbers from (I hope) shortly.

Update:

I have found four more cars in the past 12 days:

4595978
6800759
....which are both parts cars in France

and

4598110 a white Cabriolet in Bordeaux
6802313 a blue metallic Coupé in France

So the total now is 1377 cars. With the next one, the list will finally get above the level of exactly 8% of all the 404 C cars ever made.

Good news came this evening from icy cold Finland ;) Three more 404 C cars were added to the list, all of which were originally imported to Finland when the cars were new in the 'sixties:

4593385 - Coupé Injection
4498368 - Cabriolet
4498629 - Cabriolet in red - restored in early 2009 then the front was damaged in a collision; the car needs a new front wing :(

Total: 1380 cars! That is 8,01% of the total 404 C production!!

I even think a 404c is cheap related to it's rarity (and compared with a lot of other classic cars).

Another one has been found in France:

Cabriolet Injection 4591290, white.

Total = 1381.

I do know of one fellow in France who wrecked a 404 Coupé to get parts for his Cabriolet.....and the Coupé was quite restorable. That was in 1995. The Cabriolet is worth about 30-40% more so I guess that is understandable, although still a great shame.

I agree, it's not a objective conclusion , anyway i can imagine that people prefer a cabriolet above a coupe....but that's even not a objective opinion :mrgreen:

Thanks for that!

I should probably post that list of numbers again, because that car was "found" after I posted the list originally a few months ago. But thank you very much for looking for new cars, and I really do appreciate the help!

Another one has been found in the USA: a 1967 model with blue paint and some parts missing. This car is on eBay right now. The VIN is listed as 4598907 but the photo of the VIN plate shows 4599641, which would be correct for the appearance of the car (driving lights in grille, round instruments, etc).

It is a Cabriolet and the floor looks awful even though it has been repaired.
