Peugeot 205 1995, N 1.1 Petrol, Cherry Red - For Sale £280

Recommended Posts

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.

Being a 1.1 pez, the ball joints / track control arms should be dirt cheap to replace, unlike my old 1.8 TD which had the GTI-style setup at the front.

Can confirm, dirt cheap, having done both sides of mine at least twice.


I'm quite tempted, but I have less than no need for another 205 and it may help with my plans for mine but it'd die in the process and that'd be quite sad.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.

      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.

      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
