    Default The grand purge begins ex Bianchi Motors era

    40 years of running Bianchi Motors in South Australia followed by continued Peugeot community support after retirement has resulted in a large number of parts being horded in multiple sheds...... as full retirement and downscaling of property is fast approaching the grand purge has begun.

    A couple of years ago we removed if I recall correctly 8 cars so thanks for everybody's support who helped. But now the challenge continues......

    Please check out the Forum for 'parts for sale' and 'cars for sale' if you have any Peugeot 504 and earlier part requirements - noting there are the odd Citroen and Renault parts as well.
    (Primarily what I can see so far is the bulk being 203, some 404 and 504)

    I have only one week left here in Adelaide to help my father with the purge so I am trying to do as much as possible considering time constraints. As I find parts of value/use I will post when possible but please note pick up in Adelaide is preferred but smaller items could be posted.

    Hey 20five,

    g'day to your dad from michael LILBURN, a frequent attendee at the Parade workshop during the 80's and 90's.

    Wymm did the rebuild my 403 in the mid 90's, up the top of Magill road.

    If it's Peter, he was right, I should have got him to build the motor, my apologies, just young and stupid at the time.

    cheers you mob

    I'm forever grateful to Wymm for straightening our Renault R8 back in the 1980s, top of Magill Road if I recall. Excellent work, AND he had some new headlamps to sell me!

    Good luck with the clear-out.

    Don't know Tim but sounds like good news, I was afraid that someone else may have taken it. It doesn't look too bad to me, the black 404 cab down here was far worse.
    I have known of this 203 for 40 years, finally it may make a reappearance.

    Colin,

    have a look on the parts for sale page, I listed all the parts (small box full) and provided pictures..... Unfortunately my Citroen knowledge is very limited!!

    Yes the Decouvrable is spoken for and it sounds like it will be properly restored as an original so we need to request regular updates on the project.
