1996 855R

Post by appropriatenoises »

Car was purchased a little over a year ago. Seems to me that the previous owner was very concerned about the appearances of a well maintained vehicle, but that in reality there was a fair bit of work needing to be done, and there still is! Purchased with 236k km, and now has 248k.

Feb 2011: -Tune up including spark plugs, cap and rotor
-PCV system replacement.
April 2011: -Timing belt, water pump and tensioner.
-Starter
Aug 2011: -Headlight lenses
-Tailgate rattle repair and struts
Jan 2012: -Cleaning of valves, fuel injectors
Feb 2012 -MSD coil and IPD spark plug wires.
-Steve

Past:
1977 240-crushed
1981 245-on a fenceline
1987 740-on a fenceline
1998 S70 T5M- sold.
1967 P220 (Amazon) - lofty ideal, not good for a pragmatist.
Currently:
1996 855R- paid more than I wanted, sunk in more than I should! But it's worth it.
