A stylish design by Pininfarina, this Phase 1 Peugeot 405GR is finished in optional Aztec Gold Metallic (code M0CN) and is in exceptional order with a bright polished finish and only minimal faint blemishes. A tiny shallow ding to the front offside wing and very light scratches to the bumper plastics are worthy of mention but do not detract from the excellent overall appearance. Etched glass and lights as well as supplying dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted to further uphold the originality. Classic chic lines from Peugeots design heyday to truly take your breath away!
The sumptuous and immensely comfortable interior is typically ‘of the era’ from French manufacturers with large soft seats and plush upholstery. The Chatsworth Beige velour upholstery is virtually perfect owing to the amazingly low mileage covered. There are no rips or wear to the bolsters whatsoever, and the carpets, headlining and door cards have been very well preserved. The fascia and switchgear are as new and the original Clarion 97001E stereo cassette remains fitted. A spotlessly clean boot area has manufacturer stickers and markings still present and no luggage damage. A spacious modern classic interior, brilliantly cared for and ready for family classic car outings.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The four cylinder 1905cc engine develops 110 BHP at 6000rpm to offer spritely performance whilst achieving a top speed of 118mph and 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds. The remarkably clean engine bay remains exactly as intended and displays factory stickers, plates and panel stampings. The five speed manual transmission offers light and direct changes with crisp clutch action.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The wheels remain fitted with the factory original full wheel covers, all number plate etched and just one displaying slight damage. The 185/65 R14 tyres have plenty of tread remaining, two of which are the original and desirable Goodyear Eagle NCT 2 items. The twin circuit diagonally split braking system features front discs and rear drums to offer straight and steady stopping power.
Supplied new on the 4th September 1990 by Peugeot Main Agents, Henly’s of York, this wonderful example has covered just 27,847 miles from new with only two keepers. The first keeper was Mr Stanley Barnes who owned the car for over 25 years! Upon his passing, the vehicle was rescued from long term storage and purchased in 2015 by Mr Graham Waller of Club Peugeot UK. His desire to cement a positive future for the car and to ensure its longevity, he embarked on a process of recommissioning this low mileage example including a service, cambelt, water pump and brake overhaul, all evidenced with invoices.
The history file further consists of the dealer supplied Peugeot wallet containing all handbooks, operating guides and point of sale literature. The service record book contains five stamped entries, the most recent being July 2016 at 27,492 miles. Furthermore, the history file contains some invoices and previous MOT certificates along with two keys and an original Peugeot 405 sales brochure. A very capable modern classic Peugeot with low mileage and low owner credentials clear to see.
MOT May 2017, HPI Clear.
