Sellers original description:
Absolutely superb Peugeot 205 GRD non-turbo diesel.
I have a collection of fantastic 205's but sadly am loosing my storage in the new year so several have to go.
This car is in truly amazing condition and must be one of the very best remaining in the country in original, un-restored condition.
Just one look at the under bonnet photo will tell you all you need to know..it really is as good as it looks and it is inconceivable to me how a car which has covered 101,000 miles can be in this condition! Even all the plastics look brand new!
The car is the most desirable variant in my view , solid white paint (gleaming), no sun roof to leak or rattle (and much better head room if, like me, you are tall), central locking AND POWER STEERING.
The car has no mechanical or technical faults of any kind that i am aware of and although it has been dry stored for the last couple of years, it has been started and moved regularly ...so everything works just as it should.
The engine and gearbox are superb and barely run in..everything on the car feels really 'tight '.
It is currently SORN'd and not MOT'd but it will pass without issue...the entire underside is as good as the top and there is no rust whatsoever.
All of the usual places...bottom of windscreen pillars, behind headlamps, front inner wings, battery tray, etc ARE LIKE NEW..you simply won't find better.
The car is currently fitted with a leather steering wheel from a Gti but will come with the original (perfect) wheel fitted. It will also come with a complete set of brand new genuine mudflaps. The front tyres are nearing their limit but i will supply a pair of brand new correct Michelins ready to fit.
The bodywork is equally exceptional and i can only find one barely noticeable parking dent on the rear O/S door...impossible to photograph. I can't find any other blemishes.
The original wheeltrims are unmarked!
If you are looking for the very best possible 205 diesel then i can't imagine that there are any better than this one!
