  1. MOT history backs your statement up
  2. I was sure S reg was the last of these with the compact and cabby version carrying on slightly after but alas, on Facebook Marketplace is this late chappy.
  3. Trying to work out what seats are in that... They look like the GTI bucket style ones, but blue like the late cars
  4. Another 207 outstaying it’s welcome....
  5. Someone wants the doors off it, I'm reluctant to break it up but may be the way in the end. Anyone with 200 quid want to take it?
  6. I think that's probably because it's in my car now ha! Have you got the central locking and Electric window wiring from the doors for a 205?
  7. Peugeot 205 in Cherry Red, this is a 1995 model on an N plate, I saved this car from being scrapped after having what looked like the worst rear axle I've ever seen, I replaced this along with the rear brake cylinders. It had been sat since 2015/16 and as such has been widely neglected, I've found from looking around the car that the wipers will need freeing up as they won't activate from the stalk (they try at least) The gearbox is fine in 1st, 3rd, 5th and reverse, 2nd and 4th gear bounce out though - unsure on this one, if you've got a gearbox laying about, I'd recommend either fitting that or tinkering with the selector and linkages perhaps, ideally wants the balljoints and/or track rod ends renewing too as it shudders through the steering (I'm sure there was advisories about this last time it was MOT'd) , a shame since the engine runs nicely with only 46,000 odd miles on the clock, of course would need a bloody good service before going back on the road, cobwebs and all. The bodyshell is really tidy - under the back seats and bootfloor are fantastic, one of the best I've seen, the front inner wings have a little surface rust as most 205's do now, above the windscreen is great too. The car has central locking and electric front windows and the paint isn't that bad really, . It'll tidy up into a nice runabout for someone, I'd get a load more for it by breaking the thing up, but I can't really face it since it is that clean.
  8. I think I beat you a few pages back, I found a 14 plate 207 CC lurking around my area, to put into perspective, my 208 is a year older than it haha!
  9. All those P reg 205s are from a last batch made in the early part of 96' and staggered out, there aren't any R plate or beyond cars aside from imports and one random T plate car which was created in 1995 but perhaps sat around or was brought over from the Channel Islands... I've had about five or six P reg ones now, that one up there ^ I was looking into buying when it came up for sale but I think the seller wanted too much money for it and it was up the other end of the country... Lovely car, horrid wheels. Anyway, here....
  10. This is where being down the bottom end of the country sucks, I keep coming back to this ad and thinking if I could take it on, have you got an photos of the rusty sills ?
  11. December 2002, latest I’ve seen.
  12. That's pretty late, I don't think there are many R plate ones out there? Almost worthy of the late registered madness thread
