1996 850 Platinum Edition for sale on Craigslist in CT.

Post by matt122s » Sat Jul 16, 2016 2:56 pm

Hi All,
I was looking for parts for my 850 on Craigslist and came across this listing in CT. It doesn't say Platinum Edition in the add, but it has the correct wheels, wood trim, fog lights, leather wheel, and spoiler. It's tough to tell from the pictures but the paint looks pearl to me. It's been for sale for a few weeks so I don't know if it's still available. For $900.00 the listing says it runs. I just wanted to pass this along as I know there are a few Platinum Edition fans on the forum.
Thanks for such a great forum,
Matt

Sooo pretty. It's a nice thing to look at for $900 even if it doesn't move. Always loved Platinums.

I've been eyeing that car for a while now. I think the that pearly, off-white color is the classiest color these P80s come in... I can't believe the seller listed it as a Manual though... I hate when sellers are that careless. They go and get my hopes up for nothing!

Right on the NY /CT border. You wouldn't have beaten Dirk to this one, Marco.

That is wild. If I am looking at it correctly it doesn't have a passengers side air bag which is very pretty, no curling on the dash.

If it'd been stick, I would have taken a Metro North and a bus there immediately! Maybe I should just pick up a 240! :P

It is a manual 'cause you can move the selector manually- I drove to see one described as manual once- that is the sellers translation of manual

It's about 20 mins from my house, but honestly I have my plate full with my 3 Volvos. It looks a little rough on the photos, which usually means it's worse in person.

The Bus would be great. You would have a great view of Dirk driiving by in his new stick shift.
