This 1982 505S turbo diesel is my youngest son's project. At the age of 13, he has been an avid Peugeot enthusiast who has several years to work on this project with a limited budget. I can't think of a better way for him to get hands on experience with his future ride. Hopefully he'll gain an appreciation for his work and the satisfaction that he will know what makes it tick. Some stats on this one, 167,000 miles 5 speed Thomas in Roseville has been putting some parts together for us since August,2012. Mainly used parts that are hard to find that can be recycled. This past weekend the car was loaded and hauled from Northern to Central California. Recent work included new hydraulic parts for the clutch; otherwise this well rested Lyon was capable of driving. History looks to be a California car although there is rust in the common area around the windshield. There is plenty to do with the mechanics, interior and ultimately the exterior, but with limited funding and plenty of time, should be a fun driver along the way. Original paint is tired right down through the primer. Did I mention rust? Interior is rough and scruffy in places, think Lyon's den in Africa but nothing a little TLC can't bring back to life. Will need a complete rebuild of the front end and host of other things to tinker with. Runs surprising well and drives fair for the condition it is in considering its been off the road for quite some time. This makes owning a 505 in the family number 16 plus the forth in this color combination. So why this one? The durability of the turbo diesel, no electronic injection to deal with and no smog requirements. The manual trans is the best way to learn to drive too! I'll post updates along the way but remember these updates maybe few and far between. We got time and plan to have some quality time together in the garage. Merci
I have a '88 505 Turbo that was given to me by an old man on a farm. According to him the car had been parked for about 6 years. He originally bought it for his son but he broke the transmission and left it. Old man put in new trans and then it got stolen, ignition and stereo ripped out. It was recovered by the police and Old Man just left it out in his field. I found it by accident buried under weeds almost hit it with the tractor. Long story short Old Man said I could have it. I was going to scrap it but felt I should at least try to get it started. Two days later Success! Now the problems: 1. They don't make parts anymore. 2. They are not found in any of the local junk yards. 3. I need a wiring diagram, it is a mess. I wired the fuel pump to the ignition which is a tractor switch and it works the headlights too. Don't know why? 4. I could use a repair manual, I found some online but all seem to skip my year and model. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
