Needs a new transmission. Great shape - 2nd owner! This car flys and all the bells and whistles work! 170,000 K


Looks pretty good for 170 million miles.

After riding around in Evan's, I kinda like these things.  Don't let the NE Ohio scare you, these cars don't rust.


edit:  I actually think I've seen this car in Hinckley.  It's not a "rusty POS driving people" neighborhood...

Those things have always intrigued me - I've looked at this Craigslist add more than a couple of times....

If anyone here buys it I will have a good automatic transmission available when I strip mine down.

The words may say 170 miles (thousand or million) but the picture says 127 How's that?

In reply to John Welsh :

odometer gears in these love to fail. So do dashboard mounts - It's much less likely but possible someone replaced the whole dash including the cluster from another vehicle. 
Fun cars that can be made to handle pretty well, plus you can have cold air blow at your face while the heat is on. Revolutionary.

And I have a naturally aspirated car with a manual transmision that threw the #3 rod.  Hmm.....

I've had two 850s and my dad owned another one. I like them quite a bit, quick with the turbo, very spacious for the footprint, comfortable, handle decently well, and they're consistently available for <$1000.
