For sale 305 van Worcestershire £1500

Recommended Posts

Deposit taken from a Shiter! Hopefully a 300 mile collection thread beginning in a couple of weeks. Thanks everyone and I'm really glad it's staying on here.

 

I’m reluctantly thinking of selling my 305 van.
G reg
Tatty but original
130,000 miles ish
MOT to October and used daily
In the past year or so it’s had:
Cambelt and water pump,
Battery
Clutch
Two new winter tyres,
Front dampers
New old stock rear lights,
Lots of new coolant hoses found from around the world through the Peugeot owners club,
New radiator
Lots of other bits and pieces.
Dinitrolled to the max.
I’ve spent well over £1000 improving it.
A small patch on one cill, and some bodywork around the rear arches to fix a previous repair. The underside is solid and I’ve only found one small hole in the passenger footwell under the carpet.
The van had been owned by a local mechanic who drove it on a one mile trip to work and back for 15 years. I think I gave it a bit of shock when I started using it as my everyday van, and the headgasket went. The engine in the van was a replacement of unknown mileage from dsparesandtyres, but it goes much better than the old one.
The next and only thing that I would sort is that leaks a bit from behind the glovebox. The previous owner taped this up and used a syringe to pump out the glovebox, but if the van is not used for a while it will get wet in there. Otherwise the van is a great little van.
I can get specific pictures but the van is locked up in storage away from my house, so it may take a couple of days.
I was offered a low mileage t4 van by a friend, that I can also go camping in and which carries our tandem bike. This is in dry storage and not being used. It is probably time to admit that I don’t need two vans plus other old cars.

I’d like to claw back as many pennies as possible although it will still owe me a fair bit of course. As a start, £1500 is the price elsewhere... shiters make me an offer. Find another which isn’t puddlejumper’s or the rusty crusty van! Or foads/shiteknight’s. They’re everywhere here but I’ve only seen one other on the road in the last 15 years, and that was on a trailer.

It is really lovely to drive! A bit like if you crossed a 205 and a 406 and added lots of squeaks and rattles.

 

The tree was just to make clear to anyone interested that it’s still working for a living!

That's great. Where are you and do you fancy a swap for my 205?

(edit: just seen the location's in the title duh...)

That’s very tempting, but I’ve been a 205 cj owner since I was about 5 and don’t need another car at the moment.

 

I’ve been a bit bothered about selling the van as I really like it, but this swap offer has cheered me up. As my wife said when she saw it, “See, there’s loads of other shit that you can buy another time!” Praise indeed.

Sad to hear you are selling your 305 van. I would buy it

but, you know, I've sort of got one. 

I've still only seen one in 'the metal' and that was the ex

Knob van I bought off the Knight of Shite.

Hope it stays in the shite community.

A shiter has been in contact today and is trying to arrange a way to pick it up and drive it home 300 miles... fingers crossed.

 

Lots of interest from Ireland, but I agree, it would be good if it stayed in the community!

 

I didn’t know that you owned the knob van too!

1989 I got my first full time job at a Peugeot dealer. I was (unbelievably) left in charge of the parts dept. The manager was at a different depot and left me alone.

We had a white 305 parts van. :-)

 

Shame I was only 16 at the time. :-(

 

I only saw the 305 van a few times as the other departments used d it as a courtesy car.

I had this one a few years ago. A bit crusty round the edges, but not that bad. Petrol powered oddly enough, I've not come across another. Sold about eighteen months ago to a chap from Northern Ireland who ought to be on here if he isn't already.post-26064-0-86680800-1553526408_thumb.jpgpost-26064-0-92783700-1553526512_thumb.jpg

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
