Am relisting this item. It is a listed a buy it now. The car has been sitting since I last posted it and has not been started regularly. The last time I showed it, it started but then stalled and I could not get it to restart. I have not had time to look at it but the fuel pump appears to be working so I suspect it might be something with the distributor. Assume you will need to tow the vehicle. The car is be sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS. Best offer is available and it is ready to go.
From my original listing….
Due to lack of time to devote to it, I am putting up my 1987Peugeot 505 STX for sale. I would let itsit, but that’s not the right thing to do for this car. It needs to be driven.
The car was purchasednew by my father in 1988 and has been in the family since. After he passed my mother drove it until 3years ago when due to failing health she stopped driving it. It sat for 2 years in her garage until I askedher for it and brought it back onto the road. The car has always been garaged and has a folder full of service recordsgoing back to its purchase. It wasserviced at the dealer and after Peugeot shut down the car was maintained byone of the former dealer mechanics. Thecar has only 77k miles on it.
The car passed NJ emissions in Nov 2013after sitting for 2 years and after only one fresh tank of gas. It has always had premium grade gasoline init. It has new belts, a new alternator,and battery. Tires are a year old withabout 3k miles on them. The a/c wasn’tworking well a few years ago and my mother had the belts disconnected. The belts and pulley are in the trunk. When I got the car I spent a weekend cleaningall the grounding trees. All theelectronics seem to work, including the digital clock. The heated seats don’t seem to get warm, butI have yet to start tracing the circuit.
The body is in great shape. There is zero rust on this car! The paint and clear coat are in fantastic shape for a 28 year old car asyou can see in the pictures. There is a shoppingcart ding on the rear driver’s side door. The fog lights are missing as dad hit the parking curb once and brokeone. He removed the other and over theyears it’s gotten lost. The trunk liftsupport has been changed.
The blue leather seats are perfect with no rips ortears. There are no cracks in thedash. The headliner does not sag. Acassette got stuck in the original stereo so I replaced it with an aftermarketunit with cd and Bluetooth. I still havethe original head unit which will go with the car. The sunroof cable broke (nobig surprise there) and I have disconnected the switch to keep it closed. I have the original front carpeted floor matsbut the rubber backing has disintegrated. I will include them if you want.
The passenger exterior mirror glass has been fixed. I have a sunroof windscreen as well. Additional parts going with the car are assorted switches, a spare alternator and rear taillight circuit board.
The car still turns heads but I just don’t have the time andfunds to get it to the next level. Mydaughter started college in the fall and proceeds from this sale will gotowards her tuition. Half of my lifehas been spent knowing and driving it, but it’s time to let it go.
