Prof. Jordaan´s 203
Dear Peugeot Friend
With this letter we send you a picture of our 203
We bought this car new on October 3 1957.
It has done about 500 000 kilometers.
We repaired the engine in 1994. New sleeves, pistons, rings.
As well as repaires the petrolpump and carburettor. The whole brake
system was repaired this year. The master cylinder and slace cylinders
of the brakes was worn out. It is now in 100% condition.
There are other small repair work that has to be done, but two of
our sons have now taken the car over from us and are doing the repairs
themselves. We do not have good restoration people in our vicinity.
The car's body and interior is fairly good. We use the car regularly.
We had a look at your website. We do not have 203 Estates or
fourgonettes or familiales in SA. We think that there is a fourgonette
somewhere but are not sure. We also think that there may be one 203
LDV (light delivery vehicle) but we are not sure. Not one of our clubmembers has seen it.
Will you kindly let us know in what part of Germany you live ?
We used to have a Peugeotfriend in Celle , near Hannover but we have
not heard from him in a long time.
May we just mention that we do not speak German and can thus
only understand a little bit of your website.
If you need any more information I shall send it.

und noch eine zweite mail von Prof. Okker Jordaan
In our language we call it a "bakkie" and this word
means that the vehicle has an open loading space behind the driver.
I send you a photo of a :bakkie: This photo was taken in Angola
many years ago by one of our club members.

I also send you a photo of our little 203 when we used it in
a rally in 1958. We even gained the 2nd place with it.
Good luck with your hard work
Best wishes and kind Peugeotgreetings
Okker and Tzelwen Jordaan.
