The 404 was designed by Pininfarina and manufactured in several body styles: sedan , station wagon and pickup, sales began in 1960.

It was, and in some countries is still, popular as a taxicab due to its reputation for robustness. The French production run ended in 1975 after a total of 1,847,568 units were produced. The 404 proved very popular in developing nations, due to its high practicality and value for money, which continued to build the vehicle under license so production continued up until 1988 in non-European markets, with a total combined run of 2,885,374 units.

How did Pininfarina get away with selling BMC and Peugeot the same design at the same time? This is an Austin Cambridge with Peugeot badges - or the other way around.

Norev produced this reproduction car for Atlas Editions in 2015

This Atlas Dinky was sourced in November 2018 from Lacy Scott & Knight auctioneers
