    ok i think this one needs a bit of discussion

    ok the model would be a simple misprint but there is no way it can be a 50 model and be a C type

    the other thing about this car is it seems very familiar

    now there was a bloke in canberra that modified a 203C with a holden engine and trimatic and torana diff and painted the car maroon and silver but it started off life as a light blue car

    now i don't know if the car still lives in that state or this car advertised is the same car but has been refurbished

    the car when i knew it also had alloy wheels on it

    also note this from the advert

    Peugeot 203C 1950 Model Full bare metal restoration, leather trim,Holden 202 engine fitted,Auto transmission fitted,fully Engineered, 403 Power disc brakes,Torana rear end,wheels widened, new shocks,adjustable rears,fully road registered and a dream to drive. Looks standard except for wheels.

    i didn't realise that 403's had power disc brakes

    anyway it's an interesting car but also the holden engine was often placed in 203's in early days

    Large back window, quarter vents, separate tail lights - all 203C, definitely not 1950.

    I drove the car in Canberra in the late 1980s painted Maroon and Silver as I remember.
    I saw it in Melbourne a few years ago and it had by then been painted dark blue.
    Looks like it has had a further restoration since.
    The Torana rear suspension was the big mistake, why would you want a worm drive model Peugeot without the torque tube rear end?
    Might just as well get a Torana, at least the windscreen wipers work in these!
