  • The last of the 850r was in1997?
    This is a 2000 model apparently

    Pickles get that stuff wrong all the time, there's no way it's a 2000.

    Yeah really not a great candidate for saving. Good for a part out maybe

    Aren't all "R's" worth saving? After all there's hardly any left. Busted sump and engine is not a reason to turn this into a sardine can. @iceton1975 what sort of neglect did the previous owner expose this to that it might be the end for this car?

    If it goes cheap, then what needs to be done that doesn't always need done on an 850 anyway?
    When my R got totalled by the young pretty thing using it to stop her granddads magna, it was a $9K repair for insurance or payout. Car was perfect apart from that damage but I couldn't do it, I knew it wouldn't be the same.
    A possum or wombat hit? Nothing that can't be fixed. But, interiors are non existent, retrimming seats is not cheap.
    If the bones are good then it's a project for someone..
