    Default V6 504

    Hello I am new to the world of French cars and have recently purchased my first car, a 1977 Peugeot 504 GL. This car is a little unusual because of the engine hiding under the bonnet. This car has a 2.7L V6 that I believe was only found in the 604. Was this a common engine conversion or is my lovely 504 a bit more special?

    Not an overly common conversion, but there are a few around! You are very lucky to stumble upon one for your first car. It is automatic or manual? Carby or injection?

    Some pics would be great!

    And welcome to Aussiefrogs.

    Sounds like a nice find! Was it a local sale in Geraldton? Your first car, or your first frenchy?

    I believe this to be the 504 that appeared at one of the WA French Car Days a year or three back.
    Definately a conversion with auto, a good one at that. Surprisingly the V6 seemed to fit better in the 504 than in the 604.
    The give away as to being the car in question is the liberal use of yellow paint on the engine.

    Wildly, you're not thinking of John Lane's 505 V6 are you? It was yellow, automatic and had yellow rocker covers.

    Welcome to Aussiefrogs Y504.

    I saw the vehicle at a car and machine display last week. It is very much a 504 and the engine looks like it was always there. A nice vehicle with some, but not a lot, of work to do. A sensational first car!

    In these parts Peugeot expertise is a little thin on the ground. However if you post a request for info you'll probably get a whole lot more than you bargained for. There are a few die-hard Frog enthusiats in and about Gero who can interpret the knowledge found here if the need arises.

    You will also find that a surprising number of parts are still available new. People here will know where to find what you're after.

    All the best

    I will supply some pictures when I figure out how to. I bought the car from Perth and it has the original 3 speed automatic gearbox. Other than the engine transplant, Daisy (My Car), is the same as she was when she came out of the factory.

    the only 504 to have v6 from the factory was the coupe and cabriolet from 75 to79 .they went back to the 4 cyl ti because of fuel crisis in europe at that time

    OP - congrats on the purchase! Great cars the 504, and I'm sure with a 6 it will be even better!
