That's serious money for a 404; yet last time I saw one (in Ireland in the Summer) it didn't occur to me it was paricularly valuable - just a rare sighting, even more so than the 404 saloon I'd seen just minutes earlier.

Yes, but very desirable :D I never knew there was a Turbo 2 Safari...

Shame it's such a horrible shade of grey :( It needs to be yellow or orange ;)

Treat yourself to the 1927 Rolls 20hp at the Pavilion auction Jim and you can have it any colour you like...………...after a bit of fettling. :-D

Now this couldn't be anything other than French..and the condition report gives it 107 out of 135.
No reserve. Interesting but will anyone be interested enough to send the price up. What do you think it will sell for?

They were the last ones built after the saloons were replaced by XM's (but before the XM Estate came out)

PSA had a habit of doing that... They did it with the 405 and the BX... Estates of both lasted a bit longer before the 406 and Xantia estates appeared...

Possibly because they were built bu Heiulz... Did they build the CX Safari too?
