850 Platinum parts search

Post by lcszone » Wed Dec 04, 2019 9:47 am

So i am new to the forum and hope this is being posted in the correct location. I have been the owner of a 850 Platinum Sedan now for approx three years and always had plans to restore what little had to be done as time allowed. Unfortunately, life, in the way of my 17 yr old sons need for a car to get to an from school and practice has created a bit more work for me. It has now suffered three minor accidents, mainly cosmetic. Now with him off at school i have decided to start the process of bringing it back. Having said all that i am posting this in hopes that members out there may know of a non runner Platinum that i may be able to get parts from. I have been able to find 850 parts but i haven't been able to find anyone who is willing to try and match the 3 stage Pearl that makes it such a good looking car. Looking for a hood and driver side front fender in the short term and possibly some interior pcs.. Again i hope this is being posted in the correct location. Hope to learn the ins and outs of the site as i begin this process. Brother-in law (the original owner) had told me all about it when we got the car but i was never aware of just how big of a following these cars had.

Welcome - post up the Colour code of the Platinum edition (424?) so we know what to look for in the junkyards

It is a one year only, 1500 imported, so they aren't hens teeth, but not exactly on every corner, either.
