Description 1987 peugeot 205 XS 1.4 Twin carbs , 98000 miles

For sale my nice little red 205 XS from 1987, with the original twin weber carbs installed , so this is the mk 1 XS, has. Manual choke!
1.4 litre engine originally producing 85 hp, not sure what the power is now, but it goes very well, especially higher up in the rev range.
Body work is in great condition, especially considering this is nearly 30 years old. Inner wings in the engine bay are sound and as you can see from the photos are in very good nick, this is usually a problem for these cars, but not this one.
Sills are also sound, small patch of rust at the end of the drivers side, the boot still has the underlay stuck down and, and as you can see form the engine bay being very empty, these are simple cars, no power steering, hardly any electrics, making the car very light, and great for handling. 
I have a 205 gti mi16 and although that is more powerful , the XS is lighter and stops and turns quicker as it carries less weight. 
This would make an ideal hill climb or road rally car being a 1.4 litre, lower category class and all. Or just a great fun road car.
Recently I have put on a new from bumper, new passenger side door, drained all the oil out and put new correct oil filter and all new oil, also had a new original air filter. Changed the crankcase pipe and had the carbs balanced and set up. 
Car stereo is original , carpet and rear seats are  in excellent condition, front seats do have wear, but are very useable and pretty good for the age. 
Wheels are original, and I have stripped them, but they will need a refurb, also gear linkages are loose making the gear change sloppy, but these are things that can be easily dealt with.
Car is , as I say, nearly 30 years, so don't expect a minter, there is age related paint fade and marks. 
Viewing is recommended. 
Thanks
