1994 Peugeot 205 Junior

Two-owner time-warp example in wonderfully original order showing just 45,155 miles; 1.6 auto 3-door model - charming

Supplied new by Walchry Motors Peugeot of Walton-on-Thames in March 1994 this lovely example really is a time-warp car - and a rare treat.

Showing just 45,155 miles this three-door Peugeot 205 Junior can boast just two lady owners from new and has been in the current ownership since January 1996 seeing local use only. 

Clearly never raced or rallied, this 205 ‘Junior’ spec model is finished in Silver and has retained its original 13” steel wheels with plastic hubcaps and features a 1.6 litre XU5 petrol engine driving the front wheels via four-speed automatic transmission. (Interestingly, few guides note the presence of the Junior version with this engine/gearbox combination, instead referring to it as an XL, but it clearly states Junior on the car and the logbook).

Inside, we find blue velour/cloth interior, electric windows, original Clarion Peugeot radio/Cassette player, manually adjustable mirrors and glass tilt-only glass sunroof.

The history file includes the V5C recording one previous lady owner, the owner’s pack and service book revealing three stamps, the last in 2003 at 29,307 miles.  However, the sole invoice on file is reassuringly recent and details a timing belt change including water pump, crank shaft seal and auxiliary drive belt in January 2021 at 45,043 miles and two old MOT certificates. 

The current MOT runs until February 2023 and records no advisories. A quick glance at the online MOT history shows the car has covered little over 5,000 miles in the last ten years and less than 10,000 miles in the last 17 years.

Ready to be enjoyed, or perhaps tucked away for the future, the car is a rare find with low mileage, low owners and an unusual engine and gearbox combination. Sweet.
