504/505 Break Dangel


Again, these aren’t technicall­y Peugeot products, but they are heavily based on them and Peugeot engineers were involved in their developmen­t, so they count. French company Dangel started out building racing cars, but by the late 1970s had moved into building jacked-up 4x4 versions of Citroen vans and, rather brilliantl­y, the Peugeot 504.

Starting with the ute version of the 504, Dangel soon turned its attention to the 504 Break (station wagon), creating a seriously capable (check out that ground clearance!) off-road SUV. It carried on with the introducti­on of the now-iconic 505 Break.
