    Peugeot 505 GR or SR to buy

    I would like to buy a Pug 505 GR or SR 5spd manual sedan in good condition. Will spend up to $3000, but would prefer it if its quite a bit cheaper.

    anyone know any extra 'channels' for looking for one other than normal classifieds?

    thanks!

    I'd like an engine too

    Basically want a good condition car that I can drive home. Doesn't need to be registered but would like a RWC

    $350 will get you our old rustbucket. No rego no RWC.

    1982 5 speed manual about 130k. Pity about the body (the previous owner lived at Brighton) as the mechanicals are good.

    by any chance is yours in Mt. Waverley?
    have seen a $350 505GR 5spd advertised.

    I want something that would pass RWC without too much hasstle (need a daily driver now, basically).

    I might give it a miss, sorry

    The car's in Spotswood. There is no such thing as a hassle free RWC - unless you are a dealer or you have a friendly inspector. The only benefit will be with froggies most of them don't know what should be there.

    The rust isn't terminal but for $350 you have to expect to do a little work !
