Vintage -- the Peugeot 403 convertible | drive it

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.

Vintage. The Borgward Isabella Cabriolet | drive it
In 1954 carmaker Borgward launched its most popular model: the Isabella. Founder Carl Borgward had the sedan converted into a slick coupe specially for his wife. The latter caused such a commotion that the Borgward Isabella Coupé went into volume production in 1957. There was also another version.Body supplier Karl Deutsch was a popular choice at the time for converting regular sedans into flashy convertibles - and Borgward's Isabella was no exception. The result was a very exclusive affair, as only two dozen convertibles based on the Isabella coupé were built. Drive it! discovered one of these rare specimens.
