    Default Peugeot 504L gear lever

    Hi folks how common was the Peugeot 504L gear lever in Australia. We had this floorshift box on a limited number of 404s in South Africa(pic attached for reference) and I'm going to need linkages for it soon and I imagine it's not going to be easy to source because from what I understand the linkages are different to those of later 504s and column shifted 404s, am I right?Peugeot 504L gear lever-%24_20-1-.jpg

    Happy to be corrected, but the answer to that would be "not at all". I think that the L was a base model with rear drum brakes etc. We never got that one. As with all imports, at the time, the relatively small numbers meant that all importers had to maximise their returns, by up-speccing the cars they brought in. Base models were never going to do that.

    Further, I do not ever recall seeing a 404 with a factory floor shift. Having seen brand new ones on the docks in Marseille in 1982, not even that late model had a floor shift. Pretty neat though, a nice 5-speed injection would be a nice car to drive.

    None were sold here but probably an early 504 wagon would have the same shift.

    Yes, early 504 wagon is the same. Not sure when the wagons changed, but may have been when they adopted the 505 floorpan (1979?).

    The more common Sth African 404 floor shift was a fulray.

    The name came from the two people who produced them. Story in the thread below.

    Yes the fulray remains a popular floorshifted in South Africa. Just about every 404 you will come across has a fulray floorshift. It was a good aftermarket product but we also had factory floorshifts on our 404s in South Africa, 4997 built. Another country that had factory ones was Argentina
