Matchbox Peugeot 205 Turbo Custom

Hey guys! We are back from a little diecast break. I recently bought a parts car for my Volvo, so I've been spending most of my free time in the garage playing with big toys haha.

But I'm back and have tackled a lovely little French hot hatch from Peugeot. I have loved the 205 since I was a kid, and have wanted to customize one for ages! This casting is a bit hard to come by in the states, but I happened across one in a cheap ebay junk lot.

Getting stripped down ready for paint, and some new wheels and tires

I'm thrilled with how it came out! Not perfect (as so few of my projects are), but pretty darn nice,

With some French friends from my collection:


  1. Nice job - it looks nice. I think I would have left the original wheels on it (I like those wheels) - but it also looks nice with the new wheels.

    Its fun seeing it against the other Hot Wheels and Matchbox Peugeots!

    1. Yeah in hindsight I think you may be right haha. But I'm still happy with it.
