Towing a 850

We are moving and I need to tow my 850 to our new home.

Is there anything that would hurt the car by using a dolly for the 2 front
wheels and letting the rear two follow along?

Any tips?

Thanks

Dunc

Re: Towing a 850

Should be fine even for an automatic as the driven wheels will not be in
contact with the road.

All the best, Peter.

Assuming you don't have the AWD version, then that's no problem. If
yours is AWD, then you absolutely need to raise all 4 wheels.

In 1997 for the NA market. I don't know about other markets. I've
ever only seen one - in Toronto.

The 850 AWDs were only sold in Canada, not in the US, only in the short
model year 1997, only with the light pressure turbo, and only with
manual transmission. And of course, they were sold in most of the rest
of the world as well.
