Its uncanny how the 404 looks so similar to my 1974 MG Midgets ( I have 2 of them). 

I think MG stoled the design from Peugeot. Maybe not?

The MGB was a design assisted by Pininfarina so there is a resemblance there.  It's funny, when my car was debadged and in the restoration shop, some thought it was a Lancia or Ferrari.  No-one guessed MG.  It's quite a bit larger than an MG midget, like a metre longer.

This is impressive!

 

We'll sure be looking forward to seeing yours on the road at some point!

The body rebuild and (immaculate) paintwork have been completed by the best shop on Vancouver Island at the cost of two new Canada 1s (taxes included), and the reassembly is underway.  Should be on the road in two years at the latest.  See the "My 404 Coupé Injection" thread for details.
