Peugeot 306 cabriolet 2.0 for sale in blue £130

messerschmitt owner

Recommended Posts

OK, the Pug is being replaced on Monday with a one owner 89000 mile Merc CLK. She is uneconomical to repair at the local garage after my wife's cack-handed driving and general abuse of what was once a very smart and pretty convertible.I have a quote for scrap and it's £130, so I am not going to advertise for £300 or the scrap man gets it. It will be £130. Numberplate will be on retention later today and will revert to its original 52 plate number.


So, the bad bits:

clutch is expiring and hasn't got long.

needs a full service - badly! Some oil filters will come with car.

roof has a hydraulic pipe leak and rear window is knackered (spare ripped roof with good window (they zip out) available with car.

Two dents to rear

speaker trim and speaker on passenger side door buggered.

crack in windscreen that won't pass an MoT.


good points:

one careful owner and then my wife from new

two recent front tyres

49600 miles - yes, totally genuine mileage.

has an orange hardtop and fitting kit available for extra £70 - makes it look like a jaffa cake missing the chocolate but still looks cool IMHO. This offer is only available if you take the car - I will advertise the roof priced more sensibly if the car goes for scrap.


Has potential to be a nice car again - and these cabrios are very pretty.


Car located in the Forest of Dean. Available from Sunday.

Many years ago I had a phase 1 one of these. One of the hydraulic pipes got nipped in the roof mechanism. Peugeot only sold the pipes as a full set with a load of other stuff for loads of money.

I had pirtek make me a new pipe. It was sub £100 if I recal correctly(thirteen years ago I think!).

Currently owning a pair of these fine beast's, if anyone does take it on and needs any advice on sorting the roof or any other issues, feel free to give me a shout.☺️

I'd love to buy it myself but I fear I'm pushing my missus's Peugeot patience far enough at the minute!

If there is no interest would you sell some parts from it before scrapping?

the hydraulic hoses for the roof are £300 new if I remember correctly, for the pipes, less secondhand, I guess. The cabrio is basically a 2.0gti. You do get scuttle shake but it's nothing like a Vx Ashtray cabrio. The Pug is well built, goes like sh*t off a shovel and is relatively economical when pootling about. It also looks gorgeous. I would like it saved, it's just the money needing spent on it isn't justified unless you can do most of the work yourself. There is a spare roof - good only for handles, lining and the zip out rear window. I can get £100-125 for the hard top on its own and will do, if I scrap the car, but the tango/blue looks quite cool.


Campbell, how much would the roof be?

I doubt I can get this on classic insurance but I'll check.

Of all the 306s I've owned, I've never owned a van or cabrio.

depends on what you want - I'd rescue the battery (swapping out its old dead one), stereo and a few other bits anyway as my local scrapyard will simply crush it. It is too good for that.

My last response was quite brief - apologies.


I loved my time with the Sundance Yellow 306 Cabrio. It was superb and never let me down. I, however, let it down twice when running out of fuel (at that stage the gauge didn’t work!)


They’re a great steer - mine had a strut brace on it which I imagine helped a lot. I only sold it because the roof shit itself and I couldn’t find anyone who fancied the work.


I’d absolutely have another. They’re the prettiest cabriolet of the 90s imho and with a hardtop really is an all year round car.

I think the guy is called Braddon59. Roof can be operated manually.

Yep that is me.


Changing the hydraulic pipes is more fiddly than difficult. It's also the cost issue, if I can recall mine were around 250quid for the whole set, but around 30ish individually.

Their lovely cars,look great, drive well and are quickly dissappearing. The hardtop makes a great addition for winter motoring too and pretty much eliminates any scuttle shake.

Barely run in at that mileage...


So long as it's not rotten it's got to be a steal at that price surely...


I'd definitely snap it up if I had room. Never even sat in one, but I've a lot of time for the 306 in general, especially the facelifted version and one with a roof you can remove can't be a bad thing. Nice colour that too...

Currently provisionally sold.

Yes sold. Unless something catastrophic happens!


These are my other half 's favourite car. This is the right colour too. The price is right as is the location. I even have a space it can live in now that I have just 'sold' (bridged) my C15.

Excellent.  Very fair pricing and hopefully off to another shiter.  Incidentally my 306 Cabriolet remains untouched in "the car that hated you most" category.  It just loathed my existence and did everything it could to make me fall out of love with it very quickly.


Tell me more about the CLK.... I'm massive fan of them. Got this honey a month ago.

      It's a bit of an internal debate in my head as to whether to start a car specific thread on AS. My Mazda thread has become a reflection of costs of running a 25 year old car as a daily but doesn't get much traffic, my Mondeo thread has become a general MK1/2 Mondeo thread (happy about that) and my Invacar thread has become mainly about DVLA admin...but let's give it a go, see what happens.
      As documented in the news and elsewhere, here it is. Joey spud noticed straight away that it needs to be called Yummy with that number plate. But I expect the original owner was the proverbial little old lady rather than a yummy Princess-Di (had to been done) mummy.  In those days little old ladies had been Land Army girls in the war and could deal with the lack of PAS!

      It was just 7 miles up the road from me on the edge of isle of Thanet (which is where the Mazda came from too) and the current owners kindly brought it over from their marshland home in the sticks.
      Paperwork was minimal @BeEP has kindly posted me an excellent set of owner manuals, which is great, and makes a car seem more loved straight away,

      In consultation with @RobT who is a man of taste in such matters an appropriate keyring was sourced from eBay, priorities eh?

      In it's first week with me, I've had the tracking done at a cost of £40 that has sorted out the lopsided steering wheel and generally improved the driving experience.
      Soon, I'll do a list of prioritised jobs. It has an MOT until October. 
      In true AS fashion it has no role on the fleet, or no actual need. But after I failed to secure a second 323 coupé, I just had to have it! I hope it can make an appearance at a future Kent shiters meet, and maybe a very buzzy and bouncy journey to shitefest in May? We'll see.

      Not sure what the market for these are now as the seem to be priced all over the place,
      Anyone care to put a value on this pile of old shite
      I bought it with good intentions but decided to buy the hippo instead so this is now just sitting doing nothing
      it drives really well with a nice tight gear change, engine starts first time and runs really nice,
      it has chassis rust (don't they all) mainly back cross member, front driverside outrigger, and rear shock mount area,

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.


      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
      If you're interested, let me know.
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.
