This iconic supermini from Peugeot, largely credited for turning Peugeot’s fortunes around in the 1980’s, the 205 needs little introduction and indeed recently celebrated 40 years since launch in 1983. This incredible limited edition ‘Look’ has covered just 26,787 miles from new and remains original, preserved and unspoilt. Finished in factory optional Topaz Blue metallic, (Code M0LZ), the paint finish is in amazing order boasting a bright uniform finish. The critical eye will detect a few light touched in scratches mainly to the nearside front wing, quite insignificant. The ‘Look’ badges and decals are as new and all trim sections are fully intact. The underside is remarkably clean thanks to garage storage from new. Factory Peugeot Sekurit glass, supplying dealership rear number plate and rear screen sticker underline the time warp credentials.
Fitted with the special edition ‘Look’ interior featuring Blue Stratos Tweed seat trim with matching door inserts, it is clear to see this low mileage example has truly been cherished. Terms such as ‘perfect’ and ‘as new’ are sometimes used loosely, however they are entirely justified in this instance. The upholstery is perfect with no wear whatsoever, and all interior trim is showroom fresh. The fascia is pristine and all controls and gauges operate seamlessly. Specially tailored ‘Look’ carpet mats are fitted too. The boot area is simply immaculate, with the painted under carpet area as new and the rear seat belt reel housings even have factory stickers still attached. Reminiscent of a 1990 Peugeot Talbot showroom car, this very special 205 is hugely nostalgic.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fabulous, fun and spirited, this 1124cc TU1 engine produces 53bhp and is a real delight to drive. Simplistic maintenance and excellent parts availability keep running costs to a bare minimum. The engine bay is very clean and displays all factory stickers and plates as well as 205 inner wing stamps, PDI markings and painted colour code. Even the factory hand applied rocker cover sign-off is still clearly visible! The 4-speed gearbox is light with a positive clutch action.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original steel wheels still wear the factory full width wheel trims which are in very good order. Five branded 155/70 R13 tyres were fitted new in 2023 covering virtually no miles and the spare being unused. Split circuit servo-assisted brakes incorporating front discs and rear drums offer assured stopping power.
Supplied by Peugeot Main Dealers, Carrs of Castleford, on the 2nd August 1990, first lady owner cherished her pride and joy for 25 years, where upon her passing the car was transferred to her husband. Used sparingly as a second car, the Peugeot was always kept in a heated garage and had covered a remarkably low 25,802 miles from new when KGF Classic Cars purchased the car directly from the owner’s family in 2019. The car was subsequently sold by KGF Classic Cars to a Peugeot collector in Ireland, where by pure coincidence it has since made its way back to Peterborough and we were given the opportunity to buy the car back!
All the handbooks contained in the black A5 folder remain with the car including the service book with nine stamped entries. The cambelt and water pump are documented to have been changed with less than 1,000 miles covered since and an engine service has been carried out in February 2024. Two sets of Peugeot keys, dealer keyring and the original key code tags are present as is a special edition 205 Look brochure. Named Car Magazine’s ‘Car of the Decade’ in 1990, the year this car was made, the Peugeot 205 was regarded as the benchmark for superminis for many years and this exemplary example is a fitting tribute to this accolade. An unmissable opportunity for the collector and avid Peugeot enthusiast, and perfect as a starter classic. If you wish to celebrate 40+ years of the 205 then seek no further than this beautifully preserved Look!
