For sale regrettably is my Peugeot 205 GTI 6 track car project. The car is on a H registered plate (1990) and is the phase 1.5 model. It was originally a 1.9 GTI, i carried out the engine swap retaining the 205 5 speed transmission (non lift reverse gear, reverse is next to fourth). I’m not 100% sure, but i think the previous owner fitted a short shift L linkage onto the gearbox. The throws between gear feel a little closer than other 205s’ I’ve driven. The mileage covered by the car is approximately 155k, the engine (XU10J4RS removed from a known good Citroen Xsara VTS) had covered approx 72k (although this i cannot prove, i was told this by the guy who sold it to me). The engine was stripped down to block and head and was steam cleaned and repainted (block black, head silver – both with high temp proof paint), new gaskets and seals when rebuilt and had a new timing belt kit and water pump, full service kit (ie; spark plugs, oil/filter, two fuel filters etc). (please note, the timing belt is duw for renewal again. It has covered no more than 5 miles and had been ran regularly, but is due for renewal based on time). The engine is sat on uprated/solid mounts, supplied by Baker BM – well known on the 205 GTI drivers forum. The engine has had the lower fork mount extended by roughly 10mm to avoid contact with the bulk head and exhaust manifold, but not to such an angle were the driveshafts would be under any excessive strain through use. To minimize the amount of angle adjustment of the engine, i reshaped the panel seam across the bulk head also. The air conditioning compressor and the auxiliary idler have been removed and the alternator re-angled to take a Gates stretch fit belt from crank pulley straight to alternator. The exhaust manifold has been wrapped with heat resistant exhaust wrap. The down-pipe is a modified 1.9 kit (can’t remember the make, full system is brand new though). The rear silencer is matt black tipped. The lambda sensor is still used as i have welded a boss into the centre section. Please note, this system is quite loud, track regulations may come into play here! Running on standard Xsara ECU. The shell is in fantastic condition. When i first obtained the car, it had the usual early signs of corrosion at the base of the B-posts, either side of the fuel tank on the inner sills and the front inner wings. The car was immediately stripped fully inside and out. The surface rust was ground away and panels treated to prevent the return of rust. The original engine had quite a major oil leak (a loose valve stem oil seal) which had coated the majority of the underside of the car. This oil leak helped greatly in the prevention of corrosion!! But, as i was stripping the car and returning her to her former glory, i cleaned all of the oil away (a b**ch of a job!) and under-sealed the car again. The corrosion on the B-posts was easily removed, treated and filled over, as was the front inner arches. The shell was originally a metallic silver/blue (not sure of the Peugeot paint code or name), but I’ve always been a sucker for Miami blue so the next job was a full respray. I am a mechanic by trade and have never painted anything larger than mirror covers etc so this was a first attempt for me. Having said that, the car came out really well. It had two coats of colour and two of lacquer. The paint job is not perfect by any means (ie: there are a couple of small patches were the lacquer is a little thin, this would be easily remedied) and there are small dents/marks here and there. Anybody who knows 80s/90s Peugeot panels will know how thin they are and how easily they pick up damage. As my plans were for track use, i didn’t see any reason for paying a bodyshop to repair these dents if its future included track use. Again, not a massive job to repair them. The windscreen is brand new, the doors, rear quarters and boot glass were replaced with a perspex kit. The door glasses are fixed and cannot be opened. The boot glass has begun to crack slightly were there are a few screws fixing the bottom in. The perspex was bonded in by National windscreens but began to lift at the base, i then screwed it in to seal it against the bonding agent. My mistake was not drilling large enough holes for the screws, hence the small cracks appeared with temperature change :-( The doors have had the inners removed (ie: window regulators, inner skins etc) and i have already cut stainless plates to fit in place to tidy it up. These aren’t fitted yet, just need drilling and screwing in. Original sliding sunroof is still fitted. All black bumper plastics were replaced with new items from Peugeot costing roughly 500 pounds (don’t ask how i managed to get them, i had to pull quite a few strings to get these as they are no longer available!) Headlamps and front indicator units are brand new. I also installed yellow lensed driving lights, personal preference :-) The battery (brand new) has been relocated to the boot with a power cut-off switch fitted below the dash in front of the gear lever. There is a bolt in harness bar across the rear of the car. Suspension – The car is sat on nearly new Bilstein coilovers and rear shocks. Front arms and anti-roll bar is fitted with poly bushes. Adjustable strut top mounts. OMP upper strut brace fitted, lower brace not fitted but supplied with the car. The rear axle had been stripped and rebuilt previous to me buying the car so there was no need for me to address this. I do have a pair of solid rear frame mounts, not fitted, but will be supplied with the car. Steering – I fitted a Peugeot 306 GTI steering rack. This has a quicker lock-to-lock than the stock 205 rack. The power steering ram has been removed. Both track rods and track rod ends are brand new. Tracking has been set up. Used but fair condition deep dish steering wheel (make unknown). Interior – As stated above, fully stripped out apart from the main dash plastics and clocks/surround. The paint work isn’t in a great condition. It has been resprayed in gloss black, however the gloss part isn’t quite so strong! The reason: the paint i was sold by the body shop was a ‘pour straight into the paint gun and spray on’, however i discovered, once the Spanish instructions on the tin were translated, hardener should be added to the mix! The paint took several days to harden and instead of wiping away and starting again, i was advised to give it a light dusting over with pure hardener. The paint is now fully dry, but as i’ve said, doesn’t have a glossy finish. This didn’t bother me too much as the car was intended for track use, not concourse. I have welded in an OMP 10 point roll cage. This was fitted prior to paint so also has the ‘matt’ black finish. I next installed two Corbeau Forza bucket seats in black onto custom made fixed seat subframes. Sticking with the colour scheme, i fitted two LUKE harness sets in black! Looks the part :-) Wheels/tyres – The 1.9 GTI alloy wheels have been refurbished and painted gun-metal grey, very little use. There are four brand new Toyo Proxes T1R fitted. These have covered approximately 2 miles! I do have a second set of 1.9 GTI alloys which have been refurbished in Ford frost white (i think) and have covered no miles since refurb. These have four partially used track slicks fitted to them. There is some use left in them. Brakes – I have fitted Peugeot 306 GTI front brake discs, pads and calipers. Calipers stripped, cleaned and painted black. New copper brake pipes have been fitted front and rear with Goodridge braided flexi-hoses all round. Rears are original, stripped/cleaned/painted etc. Fuel system – I began fitting an alloy fuel cell in the boot, with uprated fuel pump, pressure regulator, swirl pot etc. This just needs wiring in and will run. The car does come with a whole heap of spares and extra goodies such as: -two sets of bike throttle bodies -GTI6 custom manifold to fit throttle bodies -1.9 GTI custom manifold (Bogg Bros i believe), spare stock ECU -Mocal oil cooler kit (brand new) -Catcams cam shafts -Programmable ECU and loom to run throttle bodies (Megasquirt) -spare cylinder head (standard – was bought to have gas flowed, tri-angle cut valve seats etc.) -spare inlet manifold -spare throttle body -Spare wheel/tyre (1.9 GTI) -set of 1.9 alloys newly refurbed fitted with part worn track slicks -spare boot hatch (complete) -spare bonnet (automatic – with bulge!) -spare exhaust heat wrap There’s probably a lot more i have forgotten to mention, will add to the listing when i’ve been back to the workshop and checked. This car is not quite finished, it was a work in progress for me. It needs minor items like side repeaters fitting, door cards, silly things really which i haven’t had the time to get sorted and have lost inclination to. If the new owner wanted, it wouldn’t take a great deal to have this car road legal. It comes with the logbook and a whole folder full of receipts for parts that i have bought for it (totaling around two and a half grand!!) This really is a regretful sale, i’ve bought a house this year and not having the space at work to store it any more forces this sale (i’m having to sell all of my toys!) This really will be a great fun car for someone to thrash around a track or the back roads. Any questions, please feel free to message/call me on 07581015579. Any pics required or viewing is more than welcome. Obviously, no road tests as the car has no tax/test and is currently SORN and the fuel system isn’t fully plumbed/wired in. And please bare in mind the amount of spare parts that come with the car, a van/car with trailor or a flat-bed is probably the best way to collect. Many thanks for taking the time to read my advert. Cash or BACS transfer upon collection.

Forgot to mention, the front suspension arms and rear axle were taken from a Peugeot 309 GTI so benefit from the wider track than the stock 205. New driveshafts New wheel bearings.
