Super Rare (in US) Peugeot P4

Celebrate the potential return of Peugeot and/or Citroen to the US market with an oddball, French military Peugeot product, which should also be a thoroughly capable off-roader.

Good news here is this shares parts with the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen and uses a Peugeot diesel, which, hopefully, means parts aren’t too hard to find – at least non-body parts. The starting bid isn’t cheap, but is likely below G-wagen prices and this has some interesting oddball cache, assuming you can register it in your state. This example supposedly was “refurbished in France for a UN contract” and is “mechanically perfect.” What’s it worth to you?

Yep – pretty much a G-wagen with a few interesting differences. That’s a good thing!

Profile is utilitarian, like the rest. Soft top is a nice touch.

This does appear to be in good shape and it is appropriate in UN white.

Interior is about what one would expect – again, utilitarian.

Gauges are adequate and that’s about it.

There’s room here for some French soldiers or your family.

Seller claims this is the same engine used in a 505 diesel, so that could mean US parts and service aren’t impossible!
