Little expensive, but a clean looking car. You don’t see too many NA 940s with fog lights.
Also interesting that it has 740 seats. Replaced, not reupholstered.

Wow, that's a beautiful RN/M66 swap candidate!
Much nicer than the '99 R for sale in Asheboro right now. WHY do people put those stupid eyelids on the headlights?

Does this look like a Platinum to you?

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/d/ ... 83853.html

Tried to persuade my brother to look at buying it as if it is a Platinum then it looks like it could be a potential good buy. As he is not taking the bait I thought I'd pass it on. If I lived closer I would look at bringing it home!!

Please someone buy this and love it!

Usual rider, I don't know the owner or the car personally.

That's a Platinum, nice find!

I agree, someone please buy it. Or trade your 05 P2 NA wagon straight across!

Nice find! I hope the price isn't too outrageous, since he doesn't mention it.

The hint is there "Etc. etc. have $2800 in receipts for parts."

1000 firm for a non running 22 year old car seems unreasonable, but I guess these are rare. Curious what others think since it's a m56
