Description for Peugeot Other 1988

The time has come for me to sell my 1988 Peugeot 205 GTI 1.6. It pains me to sell it, however I'd like to get an Escort Cosworth and I just don't drive this one enough.
I purchased the Pug in 2015. It is a British import, right hand drive and MPH on speedometer. I believe I'm the third owner since it has been in the states. It currently has 107,250 miles. The right hand drive is surprisingly easy to get used to and quite fun to drive.
A 3rd party pre-purchase inspection was done at a local shop, Eurotech Classics (http://www.eurotechclassics.com/), and had a number of small issues corrected (receipt will be provided). The car runs, shifts, steers, and drives really well.
Recently completed work::
-New alternator
-Driver seat wfixed with reinforced welds at the floorpan
-Resealed oil pan and fixed cracked oil breather hoses
-Minor rust on the back pinch welds above the rear axle beam cleaned and repainted
-Replaced a missing bolt on the exhaust manifold Fresh oil with new filter
-New "1.6 GTI" badges on rear C pillars
-Refurbished battery tray

Given it's age and mileage, and the fact that it spent most of it's life in the UK, the pug is in very good shape. Interior is like stepping in to a time capsule.
The Bad:
-There is a small crack in the rear lower plastic facia near the rear fog light. Not very noticeable unless you are looking very low on the rear bumper
-There is a 6-­8" long scuff mark on the paint on the rear lower plastic facia on the passenger side. Again, not very noticeable unless you are looking very low on the rear bumper
-There is a small 1­inch crack in the body trim on the driver's side rear wheel arch. Not terribly noticeable and could be fixed easily with a new piece of plastic trim. I believe these are relatively cheap from Europe
-There are some light scratches and other paint imperfections. Particularly on the driver and passenger doors. This is a driver, so I'm willing to live with a few imperfections. Overall, I would give the paint an 8 to 8.5 out of 10.
At some point in the cars history, I am betting that the left (passenger) front fender was replaced.
Some of the panels on the car have been given a respray over this car's history (likely in the UK). I believe the hood, front grill, left fender, left door, and roof were repainted. The paint work seems to be very good and has been holding up well. This car has over 100k miles and lived most of its life in the UK. It is not surprising to see some refurbishment over the years.
-There is a small amount of rust and a few paint bubbles just in front of the driver side rear wheel where water has collected over the years. I keep the Peugeot garaged, so the small rust area has not become any worse.
-The carrier bearing for the driver side driveshaft sometimes makes a little noise. It did this two years ago and hasn't come back. I have a new SKF axle that I was going to install (because it's easier to replace the whole axle than take out axle, replace bearing, then reinstall.) The noise hasn't come back so I didn't bother replacing it.
-Driver seat bolster is showing some small wear.
-Rear parcel shelf is not perfect. Pictures included.
I had more plans for this car, just replacing general wear items and such however I didn't have the time. My urquattro and Integrale have been keeping me busy so I do have some parts that will go with the car.
-New SKF driver side axle
-New aluminium radiator
-New rubber coolant hoses (entire engine) from BakerBM UK
-New Brake Master Cylinder
-A few new oil filters
I have receipts and MOT's dating all the way back to the 80's. Also included is the 205 Haynes manual, original owners manual and paperwork, and 2 sets of keys.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thank you for looking.
Ebay didn't like the VIN: VF320CB6201515666
