Description

This model Peugeot 205 is the phase two, 130 BHP pre-catalytic converter version, in its original Miami Blue colour scheme which is arguably one the most desirable combinations for this 'Hot Hatch'.
As a background, the previous keeper purchased J737 MNM in March 2010. From what we can tell, the vehicle was used until 2014 whereupon it was taken off the road pending a full restoration.

The engine was dispatched to marque specialist Pug Racing in 2018 and subject to a full engine and cylinder head rebuild to original factory specification at a cost of £2, 500. The gearbox was also rebuilt and clutch replaced. The stripped shell was entrusted to Lushington Hill Body shop who have an excellent reputation for work on classic vehicles. They worked on the car as the ‘in between’ job for 9 months, completely stripping it to bare metal and dealing with any rust patches/ issues. The car was then returned in September 2019 looking pristine at a cost of £7, 200.
There then began the long process of rebuilding! The owner took the trouble to apply three coats of epoxy resin and three of topcoat to the underside and wheel arches before installing new suspension, brake and fuel systems. Every mechanical item was either purchased new or refurbished using the best option available. The parts bill is itemised and exceeds £7, 000 alone and with bodywork and ancilliaries comes to over £17, 000. The owner calculated that some 600 unpaid hours were invested which is very apparent. The interior has been improved in the past and is in excellent condition with good leather and unfaded red carpets.

Then in early in 2023 the little Peugeot was despatched to a local performance car specialist for final commissioning. The air flow meter was recalibrated to correct the fuelling, a 4-wheel alignment set-up completed and a further precautionary cambelt change. The car was then MOT tested, passing without advisories. It now drives perfectly and feels factory fresh.

In addition to all the above restoration invoices, on file are service records going right back to 1992. The sale also includes various spares, including a powder coated spare wheel, original car jack and many consumables. The vendor never intended to sell this car and only a house move has caused his ‘fleet’ to be reduced. A replacement set of clocks/ gauges were fitted during restoration which is why there is a mileage change however the car has covered only a handful since full and total rebuild.
This car needs to be seen!
