1955 Peugeot 203 Cabriolet
The American dream: it is this influence that shines through the design of the 203, which, after the war, announced the renewal of the Peugeot brand. The total production of coupes and convertibles were limited to just 3500, of which 70 percent were convertibles. With less than 2,600 examples produced, the convertibles are very much rarer than the saloon.
This 203 convertible was delivered new in the Netherlands by Peugeot distributor Nefkens and it stayed with the first owner for almost 50 years. The car has known one other Dutch owner before being purchased by its current French owner in an Artcurial auction in 2013, making it third hand. It still has its original colour scheme – a black body with red interior, though the upholstery has been redone over the life of the car. It is equipped with its original tools and a lovely luggage set fitting perfectly in the trunk. Everything is attractive in its presentation: the body, paint, interior, accessories, additional trims, as well as the hood and cover.
This 203 has been recently overhauled with great care by the personal mechanic of our collector, which was greatly confirmed by a test drive of the car. The handling is very pleasant, the car being comfortable while precise and lively. It is indeed rare to find such a car with impeccable history and an authenticity that is indisputable.
