Gus' 205 Rallye

I bought a garage friend for the 106!

I bought it blind form a garage down south, and got them to hold it until I came back from Brasil to pick it up. Its a little gem, UK spec, 74k and all original, except some Koni suspension which I'm happy with. OEM supplied tape deck is still there and working, even the seats are in good nick, apart from a small repairable rip on the passenger seat, and the carpet is intact.

There was a leak on the way home into the passenger foot well thanks to the scuttle drains being blocked with leaves, but already have the interior out to dry everything out properly. I've given the mechanicals a once over, flushed out the cooling system, and been enjoying it over the past couple of weeks.

Zero plans for it apart from small restoration jobs and drives to get ice cream

Kind of lost the light for photos, but you get the idea...

That looks a gem. Much rust?

Only light surface rust in the engine bay, otherwise spotless.

I took a bit of a gamble on it, but to be fair to the garage it ws described very honestly.

Another year to go yet, then the multiple Rallye project will begin again!

More Rallye progress, this time the 205. Thanks to a friend I got it moved back to my place to get cleaned up after being in storage, then out to my folks so I could do the headgasket. Gave it a full service at the same time, belts, waterpump, leads, plugs and replaced a leaking cam seal. It sailed it's MOT and I've been using it to potter around in when the sun's out. My Dad having recently picked up some upholstary skills for his project, also manage to fix up a rip in the passenger seat.





Which kind of brings this to a close for the moment, as I'm putting it up for sale. I'd rather keep it if I could, but I really want to concentrate on one 'toy' car (the 106) and do more biking. My idea of buying a house with a double garage also didn't quite work out, leaving a lack of space to store two cars. But that may change if it doesn't sell!

Don't sell it and don't tease me with it.

I really REALLY want to keep it, but needs must I guess. It's so much fun to just jump into and take out for a drive.
