The Peugeot 403 convertible made its debut at the 1956 Paris Motor Show.Visitors were overwhelmed by its marriage of Italian class with French elegance. The body styling was done by the legendary experts at Pininfarina. Typical for the pontoon form were the bulge on the hood and the suggestion of fins at the rear with the vertical rear lights. In total some 1.2 million Peugeot 403s were built --- although only 2,000 of them were convertibles. Probably the most famous one was the car driven by Peter Falk in his role as lieutenant Columbo.

lots.The Hansa was produced as a sedan, station wagon, box van and even a
four-door luxury convertible, with a Hebmüller car body. The same
manufacturer also transformed the VW Beetle into an iconic convertible. We

Düsseldorf is a big fan of the model.His 1971 SM has 250,000 km on the
odometer, and he still takes it touring.
