Peugeot 504 Pick Up Dangel
When you think 4x4, you don't necessarily think French vehicles. And yet, the 504 Dangel is one of the few French 4x4s that has managed to make a name for itself! Henry Dangel was a coachbuilder specialising in car conversions. In the 1980s, faced with the success of the Niva, Land Cruiser and other Land Rovers, he decided to develop a French model. To do so, he took on a Peugeot 504 estate and presented his project to Peugeot in 1978. The Sochaux-based manufacturer quickly gave the go-ahead, and the production model arrived in 1981! Only available as a station wagon, this 4x4 was soon available as a pick-up to meet the needs of professionals. The 504 Dangel was a success, thanks to its accessibility, its French styling and its participation in rally-raids such as the Paris-Dakar.
