Transportation Department - Columbo's Peugeot 403

Although it's not displayed in the Transportation Department, Columbo's Peugeot 403 car can be seen around the backlot sometimes.

Visitors taking the VIP Experience tour, who visit the massive Prop Warehouse, may get a chance for a closer look at the French car from 1959.

Only 504 of the Cabriolet convertible model were produced in 1959, the year of Columbo's car, so his is a rare model. In "Identity Crisis" he tells the murderer his is one of only three in the country.

The photos here show that at least two of them are at Universal Studios!
