Hi.! Well after having this little beauty for sale for a while with no luck I decided to have a complete tlc and see what was under all the dust since I had the model as I bought it in a carton box in my hobby room.
I am amazed with the condition of the chassis and body..!! after the cleaning the car looks like it was used only for half a tank or so...I opened the cylinder head and is still like new.
I love these old styled Peugeot Rally cars and especially the 205T16 which was a monster back in the day of Gr.A with tons of power in a small chassis...!!!
So, for the moment the 405 is seating inside my display case for a while being a joy to my eyes...!...until the day I deside to fire it up again..!
Thanks for looking..!!! :-)

I saw this and felt like buying but I've already got one. Where on earth did you get the tyres new!?
