HISTORY FILE
The original consignment notice from PSA wholesale Ltd is in the history file and the car was supplied new on the 31st August 1993 by Peugeot Main Dealer, TFL Kensington. Destined to spend its entire life with the same family from new and so far, covering just 28,992 miles, the first owner was Mr Donald Fair who purchased the car at a pre-registered discount of 10% and negotiated free rubber mats and a service package. This is all detailed on the original sales invoice and handover checklist in the history file whereby the price paid was £13,151.18. Upon Mr Fair’s passing in 1996 the car passed to his wife, Mrs Marjorie Fair, who used the car sparingly until 2012 when she decided to cease using the car and have ownership transferred to her son, Christopher fair, who has owned it ever since!

The dealer supplied Peugeot wallet contains all handbooks, operating guides and point of sale literature, including even a Peugeot carrier bag and napkin! The original service record book is present contains stamped entries for the early years of the car. Furthermore, the history file contains invoices and receipts whereby in recent years the car was serviced and maintained by the same independent specialist. A documented cambelt change was carried out in October 2018 at 26,518 miles and a service has just been carried out in January 2021. Completing the history file is the original Peugeot 405 sales brochure used by Mr Fair when he purchased the car, complete with his notes. Mr Fair even kept a ‘What Car’? magazine article from 1993 whereby the Peugeot 405 was compared against the Ford Mondeo, Mazda 626, Nissan Primera, Rover 416, Toyota Carina E, Vauxhall Cavalier and Volkswagen Vento. ‘What Car?’ awarded the Peugeot top of its class! This low mileage and very capable 405 drives superb and, as per the famous television advert, is perfect for evading spontaneously erupting maize fields!

INTERIOR
This delightfully 1980’s interior is typically French with an abundance of lightweight plastics whilst offering surprising levels of comfort.

Entirely commensurate of the 16,437 miles covered, the beige Diamond Cloth seat trim is in remarkable condition and spotlessly clean. All trims sections are in superb order with no cracks or damage, and all equipment operates perfectly including the Philips AN232 pre-selection radio. Reminiscent of a 1987 Peugeot Talbot showroom car, this certainly is no ordinary 309.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fabulous, fun and spirited, the early 309 base model cars were intended to be badged as a Talbot Arizona and as such were fitted with chain driven Simca derived engines. This particular GE model uses the 1294cc G1A four-cylinder unit developing 65bhp and 103Nm of torque to achieve a respectable top speed of 98mph and 0-62mph in 15.4 seconds.

Originality seekers will be pleased to see the factory Goodyear Grand Prix S 145 R13 tyres still fitted, which whilst retaining plenty of tread, renewal is recommended due to age. Split circuit servo-assisted brakes incorporating front discs and rear drums offer assured stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Built at the Ryton Plant in Coventry and supplied by Peugeot Main Dealers, Tom Garner Motors of Manchester, first registration was on the 20th March 1987. The first owner, Mr Bernard Reynolds, is named on the original purchase invoice with a price paid of £5,700 less £400 part exchange allowance for his 1979 Talbot Avenger LS! Used sparingly following his retirement, Mr Reynolds kept the car for 28 years. This Peugeot was always garaged and has covered a remarkably low 16,437 miles from new with MOT certificates in the history file dating back to the very first in 1990 to verify the low mileage. All the handbooks contained in the blue Peugeot Talbot A5 folder remain with the car including the service book. In 2015 the car was purchased by a private collector whose eclectic fleet includes 20 plus cars from the 1970’s and 1980’s, all exceptionally low mileage and all humble everyday classics from yesteryear.

Clearly keen on advertising awareness, the Tom Garner Motors branding is found on the floor mats, number plates, keyring and even the original sales brochure which features their dealer stamp and would have been used by Mr Reynolds when he purchased the car almost 33 years ago! Beautifully preserved with wonderful credentials, an unmissable opportunity for the collector and avid Peugeot enthusiast, and perfect as a starter classic.

EXTERIOR
A stylish design by Pininfarina, this Phase 1 Peugeot 405GR is finished in optional Aztec Gold Metallic (code M0CN) and is in exceptional order with a bright polished finish and only minimal faint blemishes.  A tiny shallow ding to the front offside wing and very light scratches to the bumper plastics are worthy of mention but do not detract from the excellent overall appearance.  Etched glass and lights as well as supplying dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted to further uphold the originality.  Classic chic lines from Peugeots design heyday to truly take your breath away!

INTERIOR
The sumptuous and immensely comfortable interior is typically ‘of the era’ from French manufacturers with large soft seats and plush upholstery.  The Chatsworth Beige velour upholstery is virtually perfect owing to the amazingly low mileage covered.  There are no rips or wear to the bolsters whatsoever, and the carpets, headlining and door cards have been very well preserved.  The fascia and switchgear are as new and the original Clarion 97001E stereo cassette remains fitted.  A spotlessly clean boot area has manufacturer stickers and markings still present and no luggage damage.  A spacious modern classic interior, brilliantly cared for and ready for family classic car outings.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The four cylinder 1905cc engine develops 110 BHP at 6000rpm to offer spritely performance whilst achieving a top speed of 118mph and 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds.  The remarkably clean engine bay remains exactly as intended and displays factory stickers, plates and panel stampings.  The five speed manual transmission offers light and direct changes with crisp clutch action.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The wheels remain fitted with the factory original full wheel covers, all number plate etched and just one displaying slight damage.  The 185/65 R14 tyres have plenty of tread remaining, two of which are the original and desirable Goodyear Eagle NCT 2 items.  The twin circuit diagonally split braking system features front discs and rear drums to offer straight and steady stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new on the 4th September 1990 by Peugeot Main Agents, Henly’s of York, this wonderful example has covered just 27,847 miles from new with only two keepers.  The first keeper was Mr Stanley Barnes who owned the car for over 25 years!  Upon his passing, the vehicle was rescued from long term storage and purchased in 2015 by Mr Graham Waller of Club Peugeot UK.  His desire to cement a positive future for the car and to ensure its longevity, he embarked on a process of recommissioning this low mileage example including a service, cambelt, water pump and brake overhaul, all evidenced with invoices.

The history file further consists of the dealer supplied Peugeot wallet containing all handbooks, operating guides and point of sale literature.  The service record book contains five stamped entries, the most recent being July 2016 at 27,492 miles.  Furthermore, the history file contains some invoices and previous MOT certificates along with two keys and an original Peugeot 405 sales brochure.  A very capable modern classic Peugeot with low mileage and low owner credentials clear to see.
