This was bound to happen. Twenty seconds after I finished Peugeot-week I came across this early 205. Not just any 205, but a rare one at that. You may argue that the 205 Junior was part of the regular 205 line-up. Well - it was, but it wasn’t. In may 1986, Peugeot launched the 205 Junior as a special edition. The Junior was a basic 3-door 205 XE in disguise. The seatcovers were inspired by blue jeans, and the carpet was blue as well. For the rest, the Junior was very basic. It had an ashtray, for instance, but no lighter. It did have badges and stripings though, in the ultimate mid-80s colour palette: pink, turquoise and blue. That striping was to be found on a white or -if you paid extra- silver body. The brochure also mentions dark blue, but I’ve yet to find proof that really exists. White Juniors, like this one, have white wheelcovers, the rest has grey ones. The Junior was a big success and in 1987 the model was added to the regular 205 line-up. From now on the Junior was to be had as 5-door, and new colours were added as well. In 1992 a Junior Diesel appered. Peugeot 205 1.1 XE Junior, August 1, 1986.
First post from hols in the French Alps. I took this thinking I would submit it to @abandonedcars_uk out of interest, but a peek inside showed that it was clearly still in use. More than a touch of rust... #mini#austinmini#youngtimer#britishclassiccar
