205 Cti For Sale, VGC with only 60K!
1.6 manual. 5 previous owners. 60,000 miles*. In very good, very original condition!
One of only 102 205 Gti convertibles left on the road and you’ll struggle to find one in as good as this condition. I’ve owned the car since 2015 and it really puts a smile on your face every time you drive it, it’s a very usable, reliable classic. It has plenty of service history and even still has it’s original manual, service book and two keys. MOT’d until May 2021.
Recent work - £700 mohair soft top hood, professionally fitted in March 2019, replaced drivers door seal and window scrapers, 4 recent Firestone tyres, new alternator. Serviced 1,500 miles ago.
Bodywork – As you can see from the photos the red paintwork still comes up very nicely, it isn’t faded like most red 205’s and has probably been resprayed in it’s 30 year life. There is no rust on the bodywork at all and only tiny patches in the wells behind the front lights (where nearly all 205’s rust). There are a few very small dings and stone chips which you’d expect from the age of the car. All the trim is in good condition if a little faded, there are no cracks in any of the light lenses and all the windows are even original I believe.
Engine – Very reliable, no performance modifications. Slight oil leak advisory on last MOT. Cambelt replaced in service history.
Interior – Very good condition. Seats have been re-covered with leather from a 309 Gti at some point. No cracks in the dashboard, everything works although the LCD clock doesn’t keep very good time! Original Clarion cassette stereo. Manual windows and soft-top mechanism. The steering wheel could do with re-trimming.
*History - The service book shows stamps up to 24,685 miles in 1998 and then 9,114 miles in 2001 - the instrument cluster was replaced between these dates. There is an old sticker on the clocks that reads 25057 which is likely what the mileage was at the time. The service book stamps for the new clocks go up to 17,869 miles in 2004. I have past MOT certificates dating back to 2010 (25,808 miles). My Car Check shows 24,738 miles in 2008 and the car currently has 33,000 miles on the clock.
I have an all weather cover, a few boxes of spares (head lamps, windscreen wiper motor, ignition controller etc. etc.) and a Haynes manual that I’ll include if I’m offered the asking price.
If you have any questions or if you’d like more photos please don’t hesitate to contact me. The car is advertised elsewhere.
