I'm not going to argue, but how do you tell a 401 Limousine from a 301?
The first time I visited France as a 12-year-old, I stayed with an aunt and uncle at Sannois (Val d'Oise, but it was Seine-et-Oise then). I remember the Peugeot 301D because the milkman had one. He would drive into the street sounding an old bulb horn out of the driver's window, and all the ladies would come out with saucepans, jugs etc. which he would fill from a churn on the back seat. He had just started selling a great innovation - yoghurt.
OK, so it's off-topic, but what the hell :D

Nice memories, Chris :) Indeed, the 301 and 401 were very similar, and the difference in edgy or curvy shape of the front bumper won't help here, since the straight bumper is not original... There was a difference in width and shap of the grille, but tha is very difficult to distinguish. But in the thumbnail you can see that the third side window is rather curved, and the rear of the rear wing is more streamlined. Also the position of the headlamps is rather low, indicating a 1935 model year (in 1934 they were slightly higher than the front wings). In 1935 the only official taxi by Peugeot was the 401 DL, and the car shown here is such a model: normal sedans had front suicide doors, but this one clearly has a non-suicide door on the right, a typical taxi door with plyable lower part, so that the door can be opened 180 degrees in case of need for more space for luggage.
