1986 Peugeot 205 1.6 GTI - VERY RARE CAR - BARN FIND For Sale
* Please see ebay listing - item no - 183181513103 *
We have available what we believe to be an absolute one off and very rare investment opportunity.
This 1986 Peugeot 205 1.6 GTI has just been taken out of the dry storage in which it has been locked away for close to 20 years !
The car was sold by ‘Nottingham Car Centre’ a Peugeot main dealer at the time to a Mr Roughton (now sadly passed) of Nottingham and has never changed hands since, yes this really is a 1 owner car from new and shows no former keepers on the original registration document.
We have the original and fully stamped service manual showing the car was in regular use until 1996 when it was serviced at 53,182 Miles. We believe it was shortly after this time that the car was taken off the road and put into the late Mr Roughton’s garage then never left. The car currently displays a mileage of 70,037 Miles.
We were presented with the opportunity to purchase the car from the late Mr Roughton’s family in 2014 at which point it was put into one of our dry storage units. When we attempted to start the car it fired straight up and drives under its own power.
Following a brief fettle and some fresh fuel the car now starts, idles, revs and indeed drives remarkably well for a car that has stood for such a long time.
As if being a 1 owner car from new doesn’t make this car rare enough it also has something else going in its favour. It is (to the best of our knowledge) 100% standard and original even down to still being fitted with the original number plates, pepperpot wheels and having the factory tape player. Anyone who knows about 205 GTI’s will tell you how difficult it is to find standard car as the majority were modified and subsequently ruined by boy racers in the late 90’s.
The condition of the body/underside is again remarkable for a car of this age, please see the photographs as they show more than I can possible type. We cannot find any areas that look to have been painted, welded or repaired in the past. The alight 'patches' that can be seen on the bonnet are just dust/dirt from the cars storage, we haven't even washed it as we want it to be viewed as is.
We have the original registration document for the car along with stamped service book and 2 keys.
The original matching alloy spare wheel and carrier are complete but have been left in the boot to allow the underside to be inspected.
The full set of rubber Peugeot floor mats are present.
We strongly encourage any interested parties to come and inspect the car for themselves prior to bidding. The car has been in storage for some 20 years and is sold as a barn find so please don’t expect to jump in it and drive home. It will require refurbishment or restoring and obviously has no MOT at this time.
Please call with any questions – 0115 9604605.
We are located in Nottingham – NG3. Viewings can be arranged and we can also offer transported delivery of the car at a reasonable cost.
