Re: 1989 760 turbo advice
The car has only done 155,000 miles. You need to see a full service history
with all appropriate cambelt changes done and recorded, full history of
brake services and evidence of suspension bushings having been checked
and/or replaced. Test drive it and check for any odd happenings. Ensure that
Air Conditioning works as it should, plus gearbox & overdrive, engine and
drive train. Ensure that ABS works correctly and that booster does not show
any abnormalities. Check for odd noises and action from power steering and
that electric sunroof works ok. There should be no signs of water ingress
throughout the car. If your inspection says the car is great then go ahead
and get it after ensuring that the seller will put right any wrongs
discovered within a reasonable period (say, three months). The turbo is the
best of the 760s (apart from the turbodiesel that is).
All the best, Peter.
