This is my little car. It was registered in March 1988. It is a non-cat car and comes without PAS or electric windows, so you could say the pinnacle of the 1.6 driving experience. I have owned the car for 6 years purchasing it early 2013 and covered 5000 miles in it. In this time the car has been garaged all year round.
Mechanically, the car is in good condition; starting well, settling to a steady idle. The free revving 1.6 engine, pulls really well. I’m going to miss taking the back road way home as it really does like twisty B roads. It will also sit on the motorway at constant speed without issue. I have the original air box and all ducting. The car has a small oil leak which is the cam cover gasket, I have ordered a replacement which will be fitted.
The bodywork on the car is all very original, while it is presentable, the car has covered 117,000 miles so I would describe the bodywork as average for its age and mileage. It has been driven and enjoyed in its life. The wheels are in good original condition as is all the plastic trim for its age, with some minor age related marks. The seam sealer detail above the rear side windows has been reapplied and paintwork touched in with rattle can paint (see photos) The drivers door has been replaced at some point (red door painted car colour). Over the last winter I gave the cars paintwork a decontamination with a clay bar, 3 coats of resin polish and a coat of high gloss sealer. The car is washed using the two bucket method and thoroughly dried before being put away.
The inside of the car is presentable with half leather seats fitted front and back. The seat bolsters are in fair condition, you have the usual wear and tear on the front seats (see photos). The carpet has no tears or excessive wear. The vacuum sealing sunroof works. The passenger side sun visor requires re fixing as the plastic screw mounts in car body have degraded with age.
I have the original book pack and service book showing early service history and a lot of the original MOT certificates. I have service history from the car being in my ownership but very little before me other than the original service book which is stamped up until 1993.
Tyre condition is good on the car, the rears have done 5000 miles while the fronts have only done 1000 miles. The spare was a new tyre back in 2013 which has never been used. I have listed out below a number of mechanical items that have been carried out in my ownership, this is not an exhaustive list just a sample of the larger items.
A new clutch was installed in May 2013.
New radiator October 2013.
New standard exhaust system February 2014.
Fit replacement engine inc cambelt and water pump April 2014.
The rear axle was removed and refurbished in April 2016.
It had new front discs and pads October 2018.
The cylinder head was removed and refurbished in September 2018.
A replacement engine block was installed, new water pump and cambelt kit November 2018. (I have the old engine block and spare cylinder head)
New heater matrix November 2018.
New front Blistein B4 shocks May 2019
This service record is not exhaustive, I have an excel spread sheet detailing all the work undertaken in my ownership, most of the work has been carried out by professionals, backed up with receipts, the smaller items I have done myself.
I have a few boxes of various spares collected over my ownership for the car, which will be included in the sale for the right price. This includes a complete engine in bits and original airbox etc.
I have tried to be as honest with the car as I can. I feel the overall condition of the car is very presentable for its age and mileage, it has been driven and enjoyed in its life and time with me. Please do expect to see age related marks and the usual wear and tear throughout for a Peugeot that is 31 years old and covered 117,025 miles.
My asking price for the car is £5900 ono. Please feel free to contact me for any further information or to arrange a viewing, please no tyre kickers as this is my pride and joy.
