An almost perfect Peugeot 505 SX sedan, Spotted in China in the Fangzhuang area in Beijing. The vehicle was parked in the middle of a small public park but nobody seemed to care. A vintage Peugeot is indeed more beautiful than yet another tree. The 505 was still used as a daily driver, very clean, and well maintained.

Here we have a very special Chinese vehicle; the Peugeot 504 four-door pickup truck, a China-only model made by the Guangzhou-Peugeot joint venture that made Peugeots in China from 1985 to 1997. The four-door pickup was developed by the joint venture exclusively for the Chinese car market. The four-door pickup was based on the two-door pickup, which was also made by the joint venture.
