Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI Tarmac Rally Car Project For Sale (1988)


Price: £5450


  • Car: Peugeot 205


Year: 1988
Here is my Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI Rally Project. I thought I’d see if there’s any interest in it before it’s storage for the winter. Currently in dry storage, but driven regularly on the road as a pleasure car.

The only reason I’m considering selling it is due to going abroad for a little while, and rather than it sitting in storage I’d rather someone was enjoying it and taking it rallying! Or track days, sprints, weekend drives etc. It would do all very well and with a broad smile on your face!

So about the car, I bought it as a well setup track car and have started converting it over the last 6 months into a tarmac rally car.

I’ve spent just over £3k on it so far upgrading with no expense spared on what I’ve bought, not to mention the countless hours. That excludes the cost of the car itself. A labour of love.

• Professional welding done inside the engine bay/body/chassis to repair and strengthen which wasn’t cheap

• Polycarbonate window kit to FIA regulations – 4mm with grey tint. Sealed rather than riveted like most to give a more professional look and more secure.

What’s left to do to get it an MSA logbook and an official rally car:
• Fit fire extinguisher nozzles in engine bay, brackets and nozzles provided
• Fit an oil catchment tank
• Re-wire horn selector switch, quick job.

That’s it! If it wasn’t for the fact I was going abroad I wouldn’t be selling and would enjoy the pleasure of getting the log book.

• The rear polycarbonate window if you wish to fit
• Haynes Manual
• White door stickers/vinyls for rally numbers to FIA regulations

Just want it to go to a good home! If it doesn’t sell it’ll be stored up over winter and I’ll pick up where I left of whenever I get back.
