1:43 Scale Peugeot 205 Rallye (UK) Express Yellow Die Cast Model

The original 1988 French market 205 Rallye was a homologation special, which was built purely for the 1,300cc class of international rallying.  Peugeot revived the name in 1992 on a UK market special edition, which at only £7,995 was something of a performance bargain.  It used 1.4XS running gear in a 1.1 STYLE bodyshell but borrowed the original's painted metal aesthetic.

 

The example modelled is owned by enthusiast Matthew Gibson from Bournemouth who bought it in September 2011 in a poor state.  He is in the process of restoring and sympathetically modifying the car and has already fitted a reconditioned engine, an improved braking system and restored those distinctive yellow-painted steel wheels.
