    Default 505 SR sedan

    Found this on carsales. Looks like it'd be a good buy for $900

    Shame it's an auto, it might have been worth buying if it had a manual box...

    The boot badge says SR, the descriptions speaks of 2 litres and a carburettor...

    Maybe it's the numberplate that's throwing you?

    Yup. That's an SR. The only thing that has me confused is that it has 504/505GR steel rims and one 504 hub cap. As there is a 504 in the background, maybe he decided to fit the 5.5x14" SR steelies to that.

    Crosspug, the 505 SR is sort of a mix between the GR and the STI. It has the GR's mechanicals, but then it has STI power steering, silver plastic insert in the numberplate space on the rear, passenger side mirror and newer fan grille. It had unique 5.5x14" steel rims (504 and 505 GR had 5.0x14") with full sized plastic hubcaps (possibly the most boring hubcaps ever seen). Most 505 SR's are wagons.

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    I have an 84 505SR and the suspension actualy looks to be the same as the 83STI that is parked next to it. It has the later strut ball joints, triangle arms etc and has the same ride height back and front. It's also got more negative camber than the GR. In short it looks to be the same as an STI suspension wise but with the 2Litre engine.Its actualy a good package, good handling without being complicated to work on.
