      There was a 2WD 97 Hardbody listed here in CT not that long ago, estate sale. Crazy low miles, zero rust for $4500. I should have jumped on that thing.

      I just read that the AWD system on this was the same as a Lancia.
      This cheech-box has some rally pedigree, funnily enough...
      (I think) the same 2.2 I5 that was found in the Audi Quattro, Lancia AWD, a fire extinguisher that comes standard, well schiet, just throw this into a Finnish stage and watch it fly

      I'm stoked to see the '86 Saab 900t16 offered by Denworks.

      It is exceptionally clean.

      https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1986-saab-900-8/

      .




      A large portion of the comments so far are discussing the wiring harness condition, which is quite important because the 85/86 900's are notorious for having horrible wiring insulation, it just crumbles unfortunately.

      Curious nobody has commented to say that the grill is incorrect, it's from an earlier model as is the glovebox door.
      No big deal on that though really.

      Not much fond of the wheel choice but that's easily rectified.

      E-code lights which are cool, but I prefer the stock USDM ones.

      Oh man that would be a hoot!

      The wiring harness issue is a major one, buddies 85 harness has just about no insulation on any of it, does some strange things at times, still amazed that it runs with the common bus electrics!

      Super surprising they didn’t get a real photographer. It’s definitely not to my taste, but it will be interesting to see what it goes for.

      QFT.

      Just because I have a nice Nikon DLSR it doesn't mean I'm a "photographer." And on that end, not all pro photogs understand how to properly shoot a vehicle. It's not like shooting a portrait, landscape, etc. I wonder if BaT has a list of referral photogs for listers? This car and many others deserve better shots.

      Lighting is off in many of the BaT listing shots. Needs more diffusion. Others have way too much lens flare.

      Needs more detail, too. Closeups are not focused properly (hood pins, for instance.) Interior shots are grainy and poorly focused. Intense shop lighting is great for seeing detail in person but doesn't make for good photos.

      There's an art to taking good pics of cars. The curves and angles in the body work can really throw the lighting off. Knowing how to balance that is crucial.

      I'm not trying to be overly critical but we're talking about a build that has well over $75K into it from just the invoices attached. If it were my car, I'd be hiring a pro and making sure that BaT sees it at its best.

      Anyone with a smartphone could have snapped those pictures at a car show. They're not exactly flattering.
