Awesome.
Long nose? Try this: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...-6350809/?Cr=1
This would be a good car for Styria, who has previously expressed some mild interest in Peugeot.

Brian

Thatís a pretty impressive snout there Brian.
The Jimmy Durante of the French motoring world.

Still not quite as good as the beautiful Spitty though Brian

Styria might be persuaded to jump ship & head south from Stuttgart to Sochaux after seeing this gem!

At the moment there are 3 Spitfires for sale - all around $AUD3M. This Peugeot snout will save enough for a holiday in a Trump Resort.

BenzBoy, the Peugeot featured in this particular advertisement really represents a magnificent car. When in Austria back in 2008, a childhood mate had exactly the same car as featured here. Beautifully finished interior, the car just oozed quality and solidity and was an outstanding performer when the pedal was depressed for more speed. We went for quite a lengthy drive in the beautiful countryside, and one could not fault the car.

On account of the Diesel engine, just a bit of an Aircraft interior hush which was surprising, and Hans (my mate) could not tell me what size engine lurked under the bonnet - he said "how would I know, I have never lifted the bonnet - it always goes" so perhaps that illustrates the sort of reliability one would wish for. I am not sure, if in this country, a Peugeot would be an ideal choice on account of possible servicing and parts costs, so one would have to be prepared to bite the bullet, and perhaps accept the challenge of possible substantial expenses in owning a car such as this. It is very, very nice. Regards Styria

Styria - servicing is inexpensive. Parts are very reasonable.
For example: $450 for a window switch set of 4 switches for the ML; $199 for the 306GTi6. Both items fitted.
It is only the cars up to 1990 that have some parts difficult to obtain.
If I needed another car I would snap up this one as I know it has been very well looked after. These diesel engines run a big mileage before they give any issues.
Regards,
Brian

I have not followed up this car lately. The owner did say that the timing belt needed replacement, and there was also a front tyre issue - requiring "soon" replacement. Did some looking up on the net regarding reliability issues, if any, and I have to say that there appear to be some problem areas, particularly as far as the engine is concerned. Regards Styria

In the meantime, I have spotted this Buick Special on Facebook market place. I must say that American cars of that period, and even a little later, are indeed quite desirable and beautiful items. This Buick certainly meets that criteria. It's just the interior that lets it down a bit.

Patrick, twenty five thousand. Again I say "what an impressive looking car". I am a real lover for many of the Buick, and indeed, the Chrysler models. . One car that stands out for me also is an Oldsmobile 98 that I saw at Eastern Creek. It was for sale, about a hundred grand and it was the colour that appeals to me - cream. See this website colour scheme ! Styria

Spotted this gem today near my place at Cecil Hills.
As usual, with a car close to me, anyone interested I am happy to check it out.

Seems very clean, zero rust, and just a couple of scrapes on each front guard as per the pics.
