Before Peugeot's acquisition of Chrysler's European car divisions in 1978, the company was best known as the maker of bland but competent big Saloons. The little Gerrard Welter-penned 205 changed all that, becoming an instant hit and ultimately one of the most successful small European models of all time. The halo version was the GTi which is arguably the standard by which other hot hatches are judged to this day, and was produced between 1984 and 1994 in both 1.6 and 1.9 guises. It was crowned 'Car of the Decade' by CAR Magazine in 1990 and also won the 'What Car? Car of the Year' award in 1984.
Supplied new to the United Kingdom, the 205 GTi on offer was first UK registered on the 4th of August 1990. Fitted with the 1905cc straight-four engine allied to a five-speed manual transmission, ‘H85 AMU’ is finished in Alpine White with complementary Black and Red interior upholstery. A phase two example of Peugeot’s legendary pocket rocket, the 205 GTi entered into current ownership in 2016 as a running restoration project, having been with the previous owner for some five years and has a recorded mileage of 108,172 miles at the time of consignment.
Benefitting from a full mechanical restoration from 2018 to 2022, the work completed included a complete engine overhaul with head polishing and new crankshaft; a replacement Valeo clutch; new Bilstein front struts; brake refresh with many new parts; and a new exhaust. Further non-mechanical improvements comprised bodywork repairs and repainting, as well as refurbished wheels shod with new tyres. Still ‘running-in’ following the mechanical restoration, with less than 10 miles completed, the Peugeot is now offered for sale with a history file containing the book pack in the Peugeot wallet; previous MOT certificates; numerous invoices relating to the restoration and a current V5C document.
