Looking for my next 960

Post by dm635 » Tue May 05, 2020 2:58 pm

FOUND- PURCHASED A 960

I've had 4 over the last 18+years.
Current for 8 years at 219K.
I'm at the beginning of a head gasket leak. Small right now need a few ounces every 100 or so miles. But push's
coolant from the reservoir.
That is the last major job I've not done to a 960. I'm not going to do it. An indy shop I've dealt with many years wants $3,000 and that ain't gonna happen etheir.

So it's time to start with #5.
Looking a few hundred miles from Louisville Ky.
Needs to a running ride. And to make the drive back to Ky.

I'm buying so let me know of 1 that's available please.

I do have another brick in mind as a backup. A
940/ 740 turbo car. Non turbo considered depending on condition.

I'm a RWD guy. Primarily do to ease of service. Front/AWD are too much more of a hassle due to how packed the are and my back just can't dive in like I used to.

Whatcha got or know of.
Thanks Dave

Thanks Rick. Looks just like what I'm driving right now. Except my interior is Gray.
Thanks for taking the time to post. Like the mileage a lot.
The $5 K asking price is more than I can afford at this time. I didn't see that 1 in my search. Been looking awhile now.

I do have the opportunity to go look at a Silver one today. Will need a heater core and i know nothing else about it. Do not want to do that job again, but 960's are not as plentiful as they once were.

I found myself a replacement 960.

Went and looked at a '96 960. Needs some work but is a good running 149K car. Silver with gray interior.
