1996 850R for Sale, San Jose CA

Post by slarti4284 »

I have a black 1996 850R with around 170K for sale. The body is in rough shape, but runs well. But it has been sitting for a little while. Lost the front lower bumper a few years ago and there is a non-R bumper on there now. But I still have the original rear spoiler. Silicone intercooler hoses and KN air filter in the original airbox. Interior is in fair shape. Timing belt was done at around 150K. Also includes 6-8 oil filters, 1-2 stock air filters, and bunch of miscellaneous parts I acquired over the years.

I always thought I'd have time/money to get it back in great shape but I realize that its probably better to let it go before it get worse. I'd like it to go to someone that will make good use of it. All fair offers will be considered.

Robert Spinner, posting here as rspi, was in San Jose earlier in the week, and he may be back. Check with him, he may know somebody local with an interest, and the knowledge. His cell number is on his youtube vids - Robert DIY - and he has a website.

And like Neil, pics would be helpful.

It's been sitting under a car cover for a while. I know it's rough shape visually, but starts up and runs.

Has some minor upgrades, like a 3in downpipe and higher flow CAT, 2.5 CAT back exhaust.

Full size Volan spare. Most of the wheels are in good shape.

Do you think it will be able to drive across the country to the midwest?

Sorry for the delayed response. It’s only been used for short distances when family visits and needs a car for quick errands. Im not sure that I would be comfortable driving it cross country without having it looked over carefully.
