33000 km lol dont think so!
The car is high miles, you won't find the parts in North America, let alone Canada. For what you'd be spending in upkeep (even if its the most reliable car on earth, and it's not) a nearly twenty year old high miles car is going to cost you. The novelty, exclusivity, and the collector appeal are going to be offset by the worn condition and high miles. I don't know what would be a good price yet I think a grand or two less would be close.
205 w/ S16 motor < VW Golf MKII w/ ABF motor
These things are only cool in France....Go german or go home.
Great cars, parts nightmare, will the insurance companies even have it on their database?
There is no way on God's green Earth that car has only done 33,000km. Those seat bolsters look as if they came right out of a third world taxi.
FWIW, these were also cool in the UK, and along with the Golf GTI were the kingpin of the hot hatch scene.
I can't imagine how hard parts would be to come by. Scarce and $$$ would be my guess. Most US parts warehouses are only going to list parts for the 405 and 505. So you'd have to ship from Canada, or worse, Europe. eg. http://www.pugspares.co.uk/
oh wait, just saw that you are in Canada. But still, my point on scarcity remains
While not as common as a skyline (which is more common than a lot of cars) I've seen a few of those. As mentioned they're legal in Canada tho their rarity and no dealers or commonality with anything makes me think keeping it on the road in any stockish form would be a total nightmare.
As for insurance, in BC they would probably register it as a Golf because it's a small 2-dr hatch. My buddy has a GTS-T Skyline and it's insured as like a base 240SX. I think since that is LHD you'd even be able to insure it in Quebec as I think they banned registration of new RHD vehicles.
I got an email saying the car is sold to someone in toronto.
Btw, I searched on the net to see if theres any places in Ontario that supplies Peugeot parts still, to my surprise I found this place in Ontario.
