Hi Ste

Hard to find now as most have been donored out years ago, keep an eye on the usual (car and classic and ebay), be prepared to pay £2500 plus for a half tidy one, and worry more about rust than hydraulics etc, bumpers especially on P2 cars are very hard to source so make sure they are sound.

Thanks
I didn’t think it would be easy, I’ve owned a few over the years and fancy another one now.

Howmanyleft suggests 22 taxed, 100 sorned. That suggests 100 projects lying around many that could probably be persuaded in to a new home. I'd say there's half a chance, just keep trawling eBay and the classic car websites.

I'm hoping to make it 23 taxed, 99 sorned before the end of the year.

I wonder just how realistic that 100 on SORN really is.

And how many might be missing their engines?

Yeah good point, all those 205's found their engines somewhere, even still a rolling shell could warrant something more modern as a power plant, don't think it will be too long before you see resurected valvers fitted with the likes of 206 gti180 running gear, and technically still 16v.
Now there's a thought for the old diesel estate......

Gti6 from a 306 is a better option I am Considering it over the 2.1 at some point
