  • NSW 850 turbo

    I believe the car you refer to is this one, it was for sale for nearly a year starting at $40,000.

    Its now sold for $34,000

    Use the stone chips on bonnet

    Front bumper

    I'd want to see the seats without the sheep skin covers off them

    Full dash lights lit up, when were the speedo/odometer gears last changed.

    Wheel bearings/drive shafts age? Serviced.

    There's enough room for negotiation on price there

    Think of it as finding a good starting point in current market prices, then if you really like the 850R that you've always lusted after, you'll restore it.

    Always negotiate the price though, it takes alot of money to restore cars.

    Its either your passion or your business.

    If it's your passion you'll restore it at your pace and financial ability and enjoy the process.

  • 850 R , back from deaths door

    Nice one mate, good weather, cold beer and success with the car... 😁 🍻

    I'm investigating cv drive shafts for auto 850Rs, seems that there's thicker drive shafts and heavier duty knuckles from V70's that fit auto 850Rs

  • Automatic transmission cooler

    It's probably not that hard to copy the same design just using after market bits and pieces, I'm just to old & can't be bothered to chase things up the way I did in the 1990's
