The Basilisk said:Hi all,
Just joined Froggy and been getting nostalgic about the 604 I owned in the early 1990s - bought it when I was 19 - thought I was the antz pantz swanning around with the sunroof open etc! It was unusual as it was beige with gold velour interior (ex Hong Kong). Wonder if it's still around?
Could be mine. I bought this one last Easter; it is an odd colour, difficult to describe, but I feel Champagne is the best fit. In dull light it looks a pale bronze colour, but in brighter lighting has a pale greenish tinge. It also has a varnish layer which gives it a lovely gloss. The interior is a pale fawn velour with brown wheel, dash and (two-tone) door trims. I assumed that the duco and upholstery were done more recently, as the whole vehicle has been lovingly restored and converted to gas. On the highway it just 'floats'! It is the lovliest of cars to drive - a true gem.
