      1995 850 T-5R Yellow Sedan

      I'm selling off some cars to make room for new projects. This car came with a built motor and M56 transmission. I converted it back to stock with all the parts from a '96 850R that was in poor shape, but ran like a top. A perfect donor car. It is completely in stock dress. The body and paint is not perfect, but a paintless dent repair guy could straighten much of it out and the rear spoiler could use paint. The car must have been painted or repaired at some point as the paint is not consistent all around. That said it's not fading or flat and could be cleaned up to look nice if the door dings are addressed.

      Take a look >>> $6000.00

      Good luck in your quest. That's going to be a rare find. My '95 T-5R wagon has 450k miles on it.

      That’s for certain!
      Glwts on the sedan, 300. It looks like a nice complete start.

      The last one I saw under 100k miles sold for 12k and that was over 10 years ago. If you find one it won't be cheap and I'm sure there aren't many.

      Yes, it is a good start for someone who wants a good daily driver. Mechanically very sound, interior nice, mostly cosmetic work needed to make it a cherry car.

      This looks very good CJ, I am sure someone will pick it up right away.

      R-hand drive. (It's been previously mentioned.) It's got a newly painted R front fender and a missing mudflap. I'd bet the suspension and brakes need a complete overhaul. The wheels are badly curbed. Given that, it's a $15-$18k car at best.

      I'd be all over that for $15k...

      The car will be used sparingly... C&C type stuff.
      It's a present for my younger brother.

      Then, take a look at this one. It's a whole lot closer and about the same price.

      That is obscenely overpriced but a solid option if it has to be under 100k

      I am pretty sure he is looking for a T-5R or R car.

      Finding one under 100K miles will require patience but I am sure they are out there.

      One can not be that picky once and if you find one. The $28K car would absolutely need to be a turn key car with original paint but minor stuff like mudflaps & are no big deal. That is a horrible ad with very limited information. Knowing how the Japanese take car of their cars, I am pretty confident that it was probably taken care of but thats my personal opinion.

      It is one of those cars that you definitely need to see in person and inspect prior to pulling the trigger. Having said all of that it has been a while since we all saw a yellow wagon with less than 80K miles for sale. For $28K, it needs to have less than 40k miles and be in mint / cherry condition and would of already be in my garage to keep the sedan company

      Now back to CJs car

      The one on eBay was just imported, overpriced IMHO. There is another available for about $14,000.

      I had hoped it would sell fast since it's priced right, but no luck so far.

      Things that are priced right generally don't move quickly; you're waiting for the right buyer who isn't there just because it's a "good deal."

      If this showed up in my corner of the country for $2500, you bet I'd be going to get it, despite the fact that I need another car about as much as I need a supersized big mac for lunch from now until eternity.

      q

      2500?? What did I miss? If a yellow T5R was near me and complete and decent for 2500 I’d hit people in the head to get it first. Well, maybe not but I’d be VERY interested.

      Months ago I was approached by someone here kinda near me who was curious to see if I wanted to buy his yellow wagon. Honored, I said I didn’t have the means or the proper storage for such a cool purchase but in another life I’d have stuck with the discussion.

      I did. I'll create an album on my server and link. I may try cars and bids and see how it goes.
