1988 PEUGEOT 205 RALLYE

KEY FACTS

  • An early-production example of the sought-after featherweight hatchback, which benefits from recent restoration.
  • As a European-specification Rallye, it is powered by the 102bhp 1.3-litre TU24 engine, which is fed by dual Weber carburettors and drives the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
  • Extensively restored in 2018/2019, including a full respray, reupholstery of the front and rear seats, and refurbishment of various mechanical components.
  • During their ownership, the seller has only driven the car approximately 200 km.

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • The car is almost entirely standard, save for its Group N exhaust system and uprated Koni dampers.
  • This 205 Rallye retains its original Alpine radio/cassette player.
  • The car will be accompanied by its tool kit, as well as a handwritten list of the work carried out during its restoration.

CONDITION

  • The engine block was replaced during a prior restoration.
  • The bodywork showed no evidence of any accident damage or corrosion when it was repainted, and remains in excellent condition.
  • Previously resprayed, the Meije White paintwork is in great shape, with minor ‘orange peel’ on the bonnet.
  • Inside, the seats have been reupholstered in the correct black and red fabric, and the door cards have been replaced. Some of the original trim items – including the steering wheel, switches, and carpets – remain in place and show minor signs of wear.
  • There are no known electrical or mechanical faults.
  • The car’s most recent roadworthiness test was carried out in April 2019, which it passed without any warnings.
