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! Tempo Matador | drive it!
After the Second World War, the economic miracle that resurrected Germany
had many guises.As the VW-Beetle began to mobilize the masses, many small
businesses relied on a robust, small truck for shipments and deliveries.
From coal merchants to plumbers and glaziers to greengrocers, Germany's
upwardly mobile small businessmen said they could swear by the reliability
of the Tempo Matador. A businessman, Oskar Vidal, was already making
three-wheeled commercial vehicles in 1928. And in 1950, he created an icon
with the hardy, four-wheeled truck, the Matador. In the first years, the
vehicle came with four-cylinder, 25 horsepower, VW boxer engines
that were placed behind the front axle. When that feature changed, so did
the fate of the Matador.
Vintage: Citroen SM | drive it
When the Citroen SM was first presented in 1970, it looked like a car from
a different planet. No carmaker had ever built a mass-production vehicle
with such striking lines or aerodynamic contours. And the 170hp Maserati
engine under its hood rocketed the SM to 225 km/h. Georg Johannes from
Düsseldorf is a big fan of the model.His 1971 SM has 250,000 km on the
odometer, and he still takes it touring.
Vintage: Chrysler Airflow von 1936 | drive it
The 1936 Chrysler Airflow was the most radical car of its time. But the
avant-garde design caused all kinds of problems for the company. Many
people considered it to be ugly. But the Airflow offered more than a very
modern design. It was also technologically advanced. Drive it shines a new
light on the Airflow.
vintage: NSU RO 80 | drive it!
It was Europe's Car of the Year when it was introduced, and a flop with car
buyers. But in many respects, the innovative NSU Ro-80 was years ahead of
its time.When NSU, traditionally a maker of small cars, introduced the
Ro-80 in 1967, the company hoped to establish itself in the market for
up-scale mid-sized cars. The Ro-80 was powered by a 1-liter rotary engine
that produced 115 hp. It had front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent
suspension, disc-brakes on all four wheels, and a clean and distinctive
aerodynamic shape. Unfortunately, the rotary engine initially had major
reliability problems and the car was never a success. Even so, its timeless
design and many innovations make it a true milestone in automotive history.
