Since the last post, I've found six more, so we are at 1329 Peugeot 404 Coupés and Cabriolets [C] accounted for as of today.

That is 7.72% of all 404 C cars ever built.

As a point of comparison, we have in 20.79% of all smart 450s in Canada spotted, mind you that is for a virtually new car with a visible-to-anyone VIN. For the 404 C inventory, we have to contact owners and ask them to pass the VIN along....it's a lot more work, and the newest 404 C is 41 years old.

Our Canadian smart 451 inventory is not doing as well as that of the 450 (or the 404 C) at only 4.35% of all cars in Canada spotted thus far.

Update: now I have 1346 of these cars in my VIN database. 1400 by year's end is looking possible, or even likely.......

Five more have been found since my last post here 5 weeks ago. All I need to do is average just under one a week to hit my goal of 1400 "spotted" 404 C cars by year's end!
