An early Peugeot 309 GE with an incredible 16,437 miles from new.

Two door mirrors, push button tailgate opening, load adjustable halogen headlamps, reversing lamps and rear fog lamps, panoramic laminated windscreen, body colour grill and decorative rear panel, inertia reel front and rear seat belts, heated rear window, interior fuel filler flap release, interior courtesy lamp, sunvisors with passenger vanity mirror, fold down rear seats, driver’s front door bin, cubby box in fascia, Philips AN232 pre-selection radio. Dealer accessories; Mud flaps, dealer branded floor mats.

This early Phase 1 Peugeot 309 GE is finished in the deliciously retro colour of Antelope Beige, (Code EDW), a colour more often seen on older models such as the 305 and 505. Having covered just 16,437 miles from new, the factory panels and paintwork are simply remarkable and all panel edges and seams are pin sharp. The lightweight panels are completely free from the usual dings and the paintwork boasts a wonderful uniform shine with only very minimal markings and touch ups. The underside is preserved incredibly well and even the exhaust still has labels intact! Factory Peugeot Saint Gobain and Triplex glass and supplying dealership number plates further uphold the originality and all lightweight trim is fully intact and damage free. A preserved early base model example now otherwise virtually extinct.

This delightfully 1980’s interior is typically French with an abundance of lightweight plastics whilst offering surprising levels of comfort. A far simpler era of motoring is evident with sparse levels of equipment and a super thin steering wheel that still displays factory prominent veins, found only on the lowest mileage examples. Entirely commensurate of the 16,437 miles covered, the beige Diamond Cloth seat trim is in remarkable condition and spotlessly clean. All trims sections are in superb order with no cracks or damage, and all equipment operates perfectly including the Philips AN232 pre-selection radio. Reminiscent of a 1987 Peugeot Talbot showroom car, this certainly is no ordinary 309.

Fabulous, fun and spirited, the early 309 base model cars were intended to be badged as a Talbot Arizona and as such were fitted with chain driven Simca derived engines. This particular GE model uses the 1294cc G1A four-cylinder unit developing 65bhp and 103Nm of torque to achieve a respectable top speed of 98mph and 0-62mph in 15.4 seconds. The engine bay is remarkable and displays factory stickers and plates as well as VIN inner wing stamping. Even the factory hand applied air box cover sign-off is still clearly visible! The 5-speed gearbox is light with a positive clutch action.

The simple steel wheels have had a light refurbishment and still wear the factory centre caps which are in very good order. Originality seekers will be pleased to see the factory Goodyear Grand Prix S 145 R13 tyres still fitted, which whilst retaining plenty of tread, renewal is recommended due to age. Split circuit servo-assisted brakes incorporating front discs and rear drums offer assured stopping power.

Built at the Ryton Plant in Coventry and supplied by Peugeot Main Dealers, Tom Garner Motors of Manchester, first registration was on the 20th March 1987. The first owner, Mr Bernard Reynolds, is named on the original purchase invoice with a price paid of £5,700 less £400 part exchange allowance for his 1979 Talbot Avenger LS! Used sparingly following his retirement, Mr Reynolds kept the car for 28 years. This Peugeot was always garaged and has covered a remarkably low 16,437 miles from new with MOT certificates in the history file dating back to the very first in 1990 to verify the low mileage. All the handbooks contained in the blue Peugeot Talbot A5 folder remain with the car including the service book. In 2015 the car was purchased by a private collector whose eclectic fleet includes 20 plus cars from the 1970’s and 1980’s, all exceptionally low mileage and all humble everyday classics from yesteryear.

Clearly keen on advertising awareness, the Tom Garner Motors branding is found on the floor mats, number plates, keyring and even the original sales brochure which features their dealer stamp and would have been used by Mr Reynolds when he purchased the car almost 33 years ago! Beautifully preserved with wonderful credentials, an unmissable opportunity for the collector and avid Peugeot enthusiast, and perfect as a starter classic.

MOT March 2021, HPI Clear.
