    Default 504 coupe

    Did Peugeot make a RHD version of the. 504 coupe? If so, was there a v6 version, and are there any (v4 or v6) in Australia? Thanks,
    merv

    RHD versions of the 4 cylinder, inline, not V4.
    Don't know about the V6.
    There are LHD, RHD 4 cylinder and V6 cars in this country.

    Thank you. I am aware of the LHD for sale, but not sure this would be suitable as a daily driver.

    To answer your initial question, the 504 coupe and cabriolet were not made in RHD. Some distributor-sponsored cabriolet RHD conversions were done in the UK by Crayford. All other conversions should be regarded as back yard jobs.

    If you want the car give it a real thought

    I have done thousands of k driving wrong handed, usually fast ( LHD car in UK ).

    Once one gets used to it driving a "wrong-sided" car is no great hassle - it requires thought when overtaking on two lane roads, as one has to get out a lot further before committing ( this is particularly annoying with LHD in little, windy UK A and B roads ). Also needs a bit of recalibration of one's parking technique.

    One gets used to it.

    Also has the advantage over here of probably making the car cheaper. Most RHD ones would give you the risk and hassle of a dodgy RHD conversion

    If I wanted a car, I wouldn't hesitate because of LHD

    Good luck and best Wishes

    Andrew

    All 504 Coupes and Cabriolets were LHD. A small number of new cars where converted in the UK by a company called Hodec.
    A RHD conversion can be quite professional accomplished, as all the RHD parts can be sourced from a sedan.
    The dashboard is about the hardest part.

    As Tonch ? very rightly said, , Hodec converted a number of Coupe / Cabriolet 504's to RHD.

    If you are interested, back in the UK I have a crashed 504 Cabriolet RHD, which could provide most of the parts to convert a LHD to RHD (Dash, etc) The car itself had a front impact on the LHS and would need talent to straighten up)

    I have used this parts' car to provide bits for my 504 Cab that I have brought to Melbourne and an trying to get certified for the road. (I'll post some pics later and definitely be asking for advice, as there are a more than a few things I have no clue about as a non mechanic !)
