Mainstreaming – 1987 Peugeot 505 STX V6

January 28, 2015

With the 505 being Peugeot’s attempt at being a little less weird, you could argue the PRV V6 powered 505 is the most milquetoast of them all. With a V6 pushing out 170hp, four doors, comfortable seating, and smart styling, on paper it was competitive with its contemporaries from BMW, Alfa, Saab, and more. However, by 1987, Peugeot’s reputation in the North American market was already cemented, and not in the best way. The PRV engine did not help either, other applications including the DeLorean and six-cylinder Volvo sedans, none of which had the greatest public perception of reliability. That said, any car that’s survived to the ripe old age of 28 will probably keep going with proper care and attention. Check out this 1987 Peugeot 505 STX V6 for sale for $2500 in Los Gatos, CA.
