Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9 /// Outstanding Condition and History /// 64k Miles
FOR SALE: Exquisitely presented, with only 64k miles and outstanding history.
Black paintwork, Half leather / textured cloth upholstery, 15-inch Speedline alloy wheels, Factory Sunroof, Front fog lights, Electric windows, Peugeot/Clarion cassette radio, Digital clock, Immobiliser, Tailored GTI carpet mats, Tailor GTI boot carpet mat, GTI Front mud flaps, Spare wheel, Spare key.
This brilliant 1.9 GTI has led a pampered life since new and still remains in outstanding condition. Other than a few very light stone chips to front end the paintwork is in excellent order throughout, with a remarkable depth of shine to every panel – our studio photos really don’t do it justice. What really sets this car apart from the rest is all the pristine plastic and rubber trims, which are commonly prone to damage and fading; everything appears in close to new condition, including the red GTI detailing. The registration number can even still be found etched into the glass.
The interior of this 64k mile example is second to none, the front seats having been professionally re-trimmed to an exceptionally high standard. The finish is to factory specification and really gives the impression of being sat inside a brand new 205. The black leather bolsters are supple, unworn, and contrasted by the correct red stitching; the textured cloth centres are also pristine with absolutely no signs of any wear to speak of. Commonly worn items such as the steering wheel and gearknob retain a great shine-free appearance, and the plastics throughout are immaculate. The switchgear still feels solid to operate and in the footwells you’ll find an unmarked set of tailored overmats. The vacuum-operated sunroof works exactly as it should.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
This non-PAS example remains in excellent mechanical fettle and boasts the most amazing service history; 26 services having been carried out since new, 14 of which by the supplying dealer. The most recent service was done in March 2020 and the timing belt was last changed in 2018. The car’s treasured lifestyle and low mileage of 64k is accurately represented by the condition of the engine bay; there are no signs of corrosion to the inner panels, with no unsightly deterioration to any of the plastics, rubbers or soundproofing.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The original 15-inch Speedlines are in amazing condition with only the tiniest hint of marking to be found on very close inspection – certainly nothing worthy of a refurb. The alloys are wrapped in a matching set of Dunlop Sport tyres with very little wear to report. Out on the road the brakes confidently stop the car in a straight line; the rear pads and back plates have only recently been replaced.
This four-owner 1.9 GTI was first registered in January 1990. It was supplied new by Research Garage (Hinckley) Ltd. The low mileage of 64k is fully verified by an extensive service history, which comprises of a fully stamped service booklet and stack of maintenance invoices. A raft of MOT certificates and the original Peugeot book pack complete the paperwork.
The service history accompanying the 205 is one of the best we’ve seen. The book is stamped with entries at the following mileages: 1k, 3k, 6k, 9k, 12k, 15k, 18k, 21k, 25k, 28k, 31k, 37k, 43k, 46k, 48k, 50k, 52k, 54k, 56k, 57k, 58k, 58k, and 59k - 14 of these were carried out by the supplying dealer. Three further services have been carried out since the last stamp, most recently in March 2020. The timing belt was last changed in 2018 at 62k miles, and the MOT is valid until January 2021.
