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: Hebmüller Convertibles - Borgward Hansa 1500 and VW Beetle | drive it
The Borgward Hansa 1500 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1949. It
blew away the German competition from the likes of Opel and Mercedes. They
only had models based on old, pre-war models from the 30s in their sales
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
take a look at the two heavenly creations from the 50s.
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: Out for a ride in a 1965 Austin Mini | drive it!
The mini is a flagship model of the British car industry.The original minis
rolled off the production line in 1959 in Birmingham. Only six years later
she the millionth mini was handed over personally by designer Alec
Issigonis. The success of the mini was down to its ingenious technological
design. The transverse mounting of the engine meant more room for the
passengers. Drive it! takes a close look at the modern Mini.
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!
