Thinking of selling my 205, its a bit of project but they are only going up in value so this could be a great INVESMUNT OPPERTUNNITY for someone. I am based in Lincolnshire though so there is an element of danger involved if viewing/collecting.
Its a 1990 XE model, which is just about as base model as they get. Originally a 1.0, but I've swapped in a 1.4 engine (regular TU3) and 5-speed box. No XUD content here chaps.
MoT'd til June and taxed to get you home.
Its pretty tidy, a few small dings and scratches here and there but polishes up ok. Interior is slightly mis-match as the previous owner had put GTi bits in, but I've replaced the seats with some decent GL seats which are mega comfy. Rust-wise it has a small hole in the N/S/F inner wing which may affect the next Mot depending on how picky your Mot guy is, and a rust patch under the rear seat.
I've replaced pretty much everything on this car over the last 5 years, engine/gearbox/exhaust/front suspension/rear brakes & lines. The front suspension is Monroe GTi shocks with -40mm springs and the rear has been lowered 40mm. I did this 3 years ago and there doesnt look to be any camber on the rear beam.
It starts easily with a bit of choke and drives and stops ok. I serviced it about 500 miles ago and fitted a cambelt and clutch when I swapped the engine in 3 years ago. Unfortunately the engine has a vibration/rumble at certain revs. I'm not sure what this is, i think this may be wear in the bottom end, hopefully its something less serious but dont bank on it.
The car is located in Lincoln and I'm after around £400. Apologies for the 'just washed' ebay style pics.
