    Default 504 Wagon info

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    have recently acquired 74 504 wagon, interested to know what differences there are between this and the saloon. The ones I've heard about so far are:

    doors are different (front and back)
    manual box is different (ratios)
    rear end is different (not the IRS set up)

    can anybody confirm these and/or any others? interested to hear from anyone who has owned one of these.

    thanks

    Hi Patrick,

    The wagon (5 seat) uses the same gearbox ratios as the 1800 sedan and the diesel sedan. The wagon has a 4.22 diff (as opposed to 3.89 for the carburetor sedan).

    The 7 seat familiale uses a 4.11 diff and has the same gearbox ratios as the 2 litre sedan.

    Oops! I forgot to mention that you can find the exact gear ratios on my website:

    Hi Dave there's some good stuff on your site!

    I've only had this wagon a couple of weeks so havent had a good look at what's what, but as far as I know is all original underneath, is not the Familiale version, think very few of them got out here to NZ, dont know about Oz.
