    Default Moonlight Garage - The Peugeota - 1JZ Peugeot 504

    Bonjour!

    Now, I have just bought another Peugeot 504 after a 13 year absence from Peugeot's. I grew up in Melbourne, and my Father was a Peugeot mechanic/nutter for 30 years, so I grew up in an exclusive Peugeot 504 household. Therefore, I have a soft spot for the great cars...

    In my teenage years, I had many Peugeot 504's, and ended up having 4 at once. Being the late teenage age, I got the hunger for more powerful cars, and I sold up all the pugs, and got into Toyotas.....


    I am 32 now. For years, I have wanted to get another 504, to modify into a track capable car... I have been searching for a good cheap one, as I didn't want to molest a nice 504...


    Alot of people will be shaking their heads at this idea, but I am doing it to make something unique, and know I still have the appreciation of why they were such great cars.....


    I have picked up a 1973 504 GL, White in colour, manual, very minimal rust (lifetime inland car), 326,000kms. The car is complete and runs well... Just out of rego.....


    The plans for the car, will be a Toyota 1UZ V8 engine, W58 5 speed Supra G/box, Toyota AE86/RA40 coilovers (10kg spring, height and damper adjustable), Adjustable rose jointed Lower Control arms, adjustable caster rods.


    Rear diff will be a VX commodore diff. They have mounts on the top of the diff in a similar position to the original Peugeot diff... I would have liked to use a Toyota diff, but their mounting points are totally wrong for this application. The rear brakes/hubs etc will also be from a VX rear cradle. Rear will have custom height and spring rate springs. (Stiff!)


    I will be doing all the work myself, so I will update here of any work done.

    EDIT: Plans changed, and the car will run a Toyota 1JZ-GTE 2.5L 6cyl motor


    A bit of info for people who don't know these cars:
    Production from 1969 to 2005!
    They were rwd, had 4 wheel disc brakes, IRS, MacPherson struts, rack and pinion steering and are very solid cars, but sedans still only weighing in at 1230kgs. Amazing car for 1969+ etc....
    They are well known for dominating the rallys back in the day..... They are amazing cars on dirt roads and rough surfaces.
    Great for towing, with a towing load rating of 2 tonne..... Very underpowered though.

    Jo Jo you never cease to amaze ! But these are a cool cars , with features way before there time. I have never owened one but driven a few , including a highly modified one in the Wynns Safari . It did not finished the year I was part of the crew , but did a few years later when the course was not so 4WD only . This a way out there project and even though you are re-enginerring this beastie . You should talk to Jim Taylor , he was at the last hillclimb driving a Cleo with his son. He is a 504 nutter , had heaps of them over the years , he was the owner and builder of the Wynns Safari car. Also has an Historic rally one at present and does the long distance outback rallies , pretty sure he is doing it again this year. Worth have a chat with.

    Alien?
    Nice cars, quad lights and chrome bars standard
    That production time is almost as good as the original mini 58-02, keen to see this progress. Always nice to see something different

    Spacers made for the rose joint/Peugeot mount (41mm inner mount spacing) -




    Weld in mounts cut to shape -

    EDIT: The 41 mm spacers above were infact incorrect. I had new ones made up as the spacing is actually 43.5mm
