First presented on 20 April 1955 in Paris, the Peugeot 403 ushered in a new era for the company from Sochaux. Its body by Pininfarina heralded the start of a long partnership between the French car maker and the Italian designer. Its appearance marked a break with the now ageing 203 and its traditional three-box shape. Elegant yet restrained, its modern styling was a resounding success with the public. With its simple mechanical design, the 403 proved to be a model of reliability, using for the most part well-tried components. It would also be marketed with an Indenor diesel engine in 1959, making it the first diesel-engined French production car. The 403 Cabriolet joined the range in 1956. Equipped with the 8HP engine, the 403 Cabriolet was fitted with a Solex carburettor as well as a new cylinder head, boosting power to 61 bhp, while retaining its original ruggedness. Its distinguished looks won over a certain Peter Falk, playing Lieutenant Columbo, who solved his investigations from behind the wheel of his indefatigable 403 Cabriolet. With just 2050 cabriolets registered compared with more than 1. 2 million saloons, the Peugeot was rare in its time and is even less common today.
