1983 505 & 1982 604 +Engines, Parts, Manuals

Recommended Posts

Selling my friend's Peugeot collection for his widow.  2 diesel cars, 604 with engine installed (was running when it was parked in the shop a couple of years ago...), and a 505 with the engine removed.  Includes (2) diesel engines in the shop (minus the stands), many, many extra parts and a good selection of manuals.  Asking $2700.00 for the whole collection.  I am no Peugeot expert by any means, so please peruse the photos I have included and feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to provide reasonable answers.  I'm really hoping this collection can go to someone who will appreciate it!  Reasonable offers considered.  Thanks, Larry

Thanks for the location Larry.  I'm assuming the 505 is a parts car for the 604 as it looks like it'd be a lot of work to save.  

The 604 however looks in amazing shape.  It would be ideal if you could take pictures to verify it's rust free.  It should also be a 5sp, but the year would help figure out what motor should be in it.  Head should have a casting number on it saying XD2 or XD3.

The 604 is a 1982 model.  I stopped by this evening, but couldn't get the hood open by myself because it didn't want to pop up on its own when I pulled the hood release.  It was too dark out to get good pictures of the wheel wells of the car, but I was able to get a decent look at it and could not see any rust.  Known issues with this car: driver's door doesn't want to open, the linkage is messed up somehow, brakes are quite draggy at the moment, battery is totally dead, even with a charge it didn't want to turn the starter or run the power windows.  Yes, it is a 5 speed.

As to the 505, to the best of my knowledge all it needed was a running engine to be road-worthy. The paint on that car has a few issues, but I haven't spotted any obvious body damage.  It is my intention to sell both cars, the parts, engines and manuals as a complete lot, rather than try to break up the collection.

Thanks for you interest, and I will try to get some better pictures of the engine in the car as well as the two in the shop for identification purposes.

Hi Larry - thanks for the update.  1982 likely means a XD2S Turbo diesel (2.3L) with a Bosch VE injection pump.

As for more pictures:  If you can take pictures of all 4 lower door seams, both side of engine compartment, dog legs inside rear doors, and inside trunk without the matt or carpet - that should show how rust free the car is.  

I wish I was in the market as I have a beautifully running 1986 505 TD 5sp that would make that 604 right.   I did forward it to a friend though who might be interested.

I had an account and posted years ago, but it may have been thru my old email address..

The other cars are definitely in rough shape, there is an 82 diesel in the stash with no engine, and then a later model intercooled turbo wagon. Both have been outside and are pretty hammered, but don't seem to be beyond reclamation. When we get the stuff on Friday, we will probably be only able to take the 604, the two XD2S's and then a big chunk of the parts/manuals.

I'll keep y'all posted!

Looking forward to hearing of your adventures...  I always wanted to have a 604 TD 5 speed.  Only ever test drove one in Edmonton, Alberta many moons ago.  Even back then that one had its' fair share of rust if I remember correctly (it may have been at Pioneer Motors).

Funny - In high school I drove from North Battleford Saskatchewan to Pioneer Motors in Edmonton just to go to an actual Peugeot repair shop.  When I got my first 86' 505 Turbo in ~1994 the front strut perch rusted out.  Called Pioneer and found out there was a 10yr/100K mile extended warranty and Julio sent me 2 new strut housings for free!  I still have them - I took the rusted out struts apart and welded the perch back and reassembled.  :)

UPDATE: We got the car back to my place last week. Big thank you to Rick Patston for helping me out with his trailer. We got the 2 XD2S engines, the 604 and as many parts as we could grab. I like the old school glass bowl filter, so I installed it. Mysteriously the car started up immediately with NO fuel filter. I quickly put one in and primed the system. Diesel looks remarkable for sitting for a few years. Added some diesel purge and tank cleaner nonetheless. It took me hours just to get all the doors unfrozen. Tragically they were all locked when parked, so if the lock lever wasn't operable it required careful door card surgery to access the linkages. Rear passenger linkage assembly was damaged by me forcing the lock mechanism, but Hugh Logie has a spare one for me! 
Next on my list is to finish overhauling the entire brake system and the clutch hydraulics. Then I'll need to do a coolant flush, belts and an oil change. Electrics inside the car will need some inspection too. At that point, I'll at least be ready to take it for a spin around the block and see how the engine does under load. When the car first starts up it makes a squeak/chirp from the rear of the engine - but it goes away after a bit of running. Doesn't appear to be coming from rocker shaft and the engine looks clean in the valve cover, might be Turbo or pilot bearing? I'm gonna drive it for a bit before worrying too much about it. There's a little bit of rust, but nothing terrible that I've seen thus far. Wheel arches seem solid in the trunk. Needs a lot more washing and interior cleaning. Apparently it's an 81 (according to Brian Holm, all 81 604s were labeled 82s) based on the fact that it has the older XD2S rendition (which Brian Holm says is better) and the greaseable ball joints.
