Here’s a car we don’t see a lot these days, a Peugeot 505 SW8 station wagon. This was Peugeot’s largest wagon offering in the North American market, being the long-wheelbase version of the 505 wagon. The SW8 had 3 rows of seats, and boasted (admittedly snug) seating for 8 people.
This one appeared to be in extremely good condition in person, certainly looking less used-up than most daily driver examples that I see today (which kind of sounds like I see a lot of 505 daily drivers, which is far from the case).
During the last model years these could be had for as low at $16K, which, let’s face it, is a bargain even in 1990 dollars. Lest we forget, $16K today only gets one into a Volvo wagon full of golden retriever fur and baby puke.
This one is obviously from an area of the country where, at the time, one was never more than 30 minutes away from a Peugeot dealer.
So when was the last time you’ve seen one?
