1990 PEUGEOT 208 GTI 1.6 - £7,995
SOLD: A super little 205, just three owners from new with fantastic history.
Original Clarion cassette/radio, Sunroof, Rear reflective "GTi" decal, Digital clock, Front fog lights, Lockable glove compartment, Cigarette lighter, Ash tray, Spare wheel, Carpet mats, Spare key.
Every bit the iconic hot hatch, this little Peugeot looks splendid with its Alpine White paintwork and contrasting black and red trim. The finish is to a great standard overall and the bodywork presents well throughout. Furthermore the car is free from any scrapes or scuffs, with the bumpers and rubbing strips in fine order too.
In addition to the sliding sunroof the 205 also features a reflective 'GTi' decal on the tailgate, a nice period accessory as fitted from new. All in all, the car is not what some might consider a 'garage queen' but certainly does remain a very useable example to be driven and enjoyed.
Exuding eighties chic the interior of the 205 does not disappoint. On close inspection the delicate cloth upholstery remains in great order with absolutely no rips or tears to speak of. Typically there is some very light sagging to the fabric on the bolsters, but certainly nothing untoward for a car such as this.
The dash, fascia, and centre console present extremely well and maintain a fresh finish; even the factory Clarion cassette player is still in place. Furthermore, the door cards are pristine and the carpet is finished with a set of black overmats in the footwells.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Peugeot has been well maintained over the years and is complete with a documented service history, which stretches from the first year of the car's life right up to the current mileage. In addition to this the timing belt has been renewed three times, most recently at 83,406 miles. A new clutch was fitted just 8k miles ago.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Sitting on its original set of 14-inch pepper pot' wheels the GTi has an assertive yet playful stance. The alloys are in very good condition and are free from any major curb marking, although there is some light crazing to the lacquer on the polished centres. They are shod in good quality tyres with ample tread remaining.
The 205 was first registered to a Mrs Roberston on 27th April 1990. It was supplied new by Mayfield Garage Ltd, Halifax, and cost £8,415.65 according to the original sales invoice still present in the paperwork. Since that time it has had just three keepers and has covered a modest 85k miles.
In the history file you'll find the dealer-supplied document pack with all the associated manuals, the service booklet, plus an original accessories brochure with price list. There is also a stack of invoices and every MOT certificate up until 2013. The service history is as follows:
