Columbo's service car – The Peugeot 403
The open version of the Peugeot 403 is used in 69 episodes of the famous TV series „Columbo“, as a service and private car. Main actor Peter Falk drives the French Convertible for the first time in 1971 and has apparetly specifically requested this French convertible for filming. When asked about it he said: "This is a 1950 Peugeot – they are very rare! " and that was the one time Columbo made a mistake: The car was actually built in 1959!
