1996 850 turbo Gold edition FS Portland ME

Post by Dave in Maine »

I'm selling my 1996 850 turbo "gold edition" sedan. A tree limb fell on it during a windstorm, trashed the windshield and dented the front of the roof. Needs a windshield, roof header and roof. Or part it out.
Other than that, it's a great car and a great running car.
Approx. 220k mi, lots of new(er) parts - full tuneup and PCV, tie rod ends, brake lines, rear brakes <12k miles ago, new ignition switch, new evaporator core <25k ago (and hardly used), alloy wheels (plus an extra wheel). Newer tires (<15k).
All systems work. 6 CD changer and stereo work very well.
Heated leather. Driver's seat shows some wear but the remainder of the interior is cherry.
Body shows some minor stuff - stone chips and a parking lot scrape but no rust worth talking about.
I got a well-maintained car when I bought it, and took good care of it.
My insurer wants to total it, but I cannot bear the thought of it feeding a crusher. I'd rather it go to a good home and provide parts, etc.
At my home in Portland, Maine. You come and get it. You'll get a salvage title. $500 OBRO

I would love for someone to save this car - everything is good except for the roof/header/windshield damage.
Even the turbo is great.
But, if I don't have a deal on the table by Monday, I'll have to just take the insurance company's money and let them take it.

Real bummer this happened to you. Unfortunately, you are too far away from me and I'm booked this weekend and the next.
Just out of curiosity, what's the color of the interior?

Good luck.

The seats are a medium-dark blue-gray. The carpet is a medium-dark blue-gray.
I do not intend to strip parts off it because I do not have the space to store them. You want parts, come and get them.
