    Engine donor?

    Not a dirt cheap starting price but interesting to see if anyone bites. I've recently become curious how much other PRV equipped cars are selling for. For some reason or another I'm having a hard time believing they've seen these cars go for $8K!!

    Yeah I think it has also. Wonder what the story behind it is

    I think you hit the Alpine nail right on the head for me: it's not a gorgeous car as much as it is so Gallic strange and intriguing. A sports car but not a Porsche 911 or Corvette. Too French to ever be confused with a BMW or Audi. Its PRV can only make the DMC faithful envious...

    I'm no Peugeot authority but I know the 1988 505 GLX used the 2.8L PRV and I'm pretty sure it is also fed via K-Jet. Might be useful for someone
