    1996 850 wagon, 5-speed, non-turbo, midnight blue, alloy wheels, 225K miles. Located in Maryland, USA.

    The good:
    • Car is in running condition and is driven ~26 mi round trip about once a week for exercise.
    • One owner, complete service records, well maintained over life of car
    • Engine is in great shape: starts easily and runs smoothly. Only uses 1 qt oil/3000 mi.
    • Interior is cloth, in good shape, has electric driver seat
    • Body is solid, only one very small dent on rear gate, no accidents
    The not-so-good:
    • ABS/tracs controller needs replacement. Insulation on wiring has disintegrated all the way into the motor. Brakes are fine otherwise.
    • A/C not functional – probably needs condenser
    • Currently has CEL code P0133, slow O2 response. O2 sensor is original, so probably needs replacement. Also has occasional P0442, small evap leak
    • Paint is deteriorating. Car was parked outside its entire life and it shows. Mostly bad clearcoat; very little rust.
    This car has made me happy for the past 24 years. I’d like to see it make someone else happy as a fun project car, or at the least provide parts for another fun project car.

    $400 OBO, cash only, please!
