SMC Heritage are proud to present this incredibly special 1990 Peugeot 309 GTI with just 15600 Miles and 1 owner from new!
Supplied new on Sept 28th 1990 by Clock Garage of Castle Bromwich Peugeot main agents, finished in Cherry red with black and red velour seat trim.
About the 309 GTI:
"Autocar and Motor Magazine voted the Peugoet 309 GTi as "Best Hot Hatch" for 3 years in a row, Max Power Magazine Quoted "The 309 GTi handles similarly to the 205 GTi BUT MUCH BETTER!!" and "The more you push this car, the BETTER it Gets!".
With just 15,600 miles and just one keeper this really is as good as it gets for collector, investor and show potential. The car is supplied with all booklets and instructions in the original plastic file. The original hard written order form, invoice, deposit receipts and even customer service questionnaire from Peugeot Talbot are present alongside the 1990 Peugeot 309 Brochure.
The brochure interestingly is stamped by another Peugeot dealer in the west midlands. The order form shows no discount on the sale price so perhaps Solihull Motor Co failed to live up to expectation hence the order was placed elsewhere? Judging by both the condition of the car, the documentation and the hand written notes he was certainly a stickler for detail.
We also have the original blue V5, tax and sorn notifications, several invoices on file as well as various insurance agreements for his 30year tenure. The vehicle was used sparingly until 2010 when it was put into storage before a light re-commissioning was undertaken in 2019, including a new timing belt at 15682 miles. All keys are still present and it even has the supplying dealer key ring as well as original plates and tax disc holder. The Jack is unused and still bares its original warning label.
Evidently having always been garaged the car is in remarkable condition. The Cherry red paint is deep and luscious having been detailed by our in-house team. Such was the previous owner’s attention to detail that he had lined the inner edge of the boot floor with black tape to protect the paintwork inside the edge of the boot and inside the fuel filler cap still wears its 30 year old pre delivery protective sticker! The windows are all etched with the correct factory markings and as was usual at the time the vehicle registration. The bumpers, lights and badges are all correct and free from any damage or discolouration.
The interior is a fabulous place to reside with factory sunroof and immaculate black and red velour trim. When you sit in this car you are transported back to the 1990’s. The carpets are also unworn and in perfect order. The switch gear is all present, correct, fully functional and unmarked. The car is still equipped with the factory fit Clarion tape head unit – Vanilla Ice tape not included!
With just 15,600 miles its condition is best described as time warp. The exterior and interior are quite simply superb.
On the road this 309 drives with all the smoothness and fluidity you that you only find with low mileage perfectly maintained examples. It's not hard to see why contemporary road tests raved about this 130bhp French beauty. The 205 GTI out sold the 309 GTI by 5 to 1 and there are now 15 times more 205 GTI’s left than 309 GTI’s so with the best low mileage 205 GTI’s nudging north of £40k the 309 GTI is a shrewd investment
If you are looking for the best, most attractive and original example of the legendary GTI you need to see this car.
The vehicle will be MOT’d and fully service by SMC Heritage prior to collection for complete peace of mind.
