1FASTBOX 4 sale

I am going to put the car up for sale, some of you know the car well,Multiple VCOA and other Volvo shows winner. Been at every show I could drive to for 6yrs, clean as you are ever going to find a 850 to be. <p>I wanted to give the swedespeed crew the first crack.<p>I have pics and a long mod list to send to anyone who is serious! I will let the car go for a fair price, and will not give it away. email me at [email protected]<p>Reason for sale I have two T-5R's, the daily driver WINTRBOX will keep me alive with yellow! She is all fixed up now and there has been a new edition to the garage. FASTBOX will just not get used and that would be a shame.<p>The car runs perfect and no mods will be taken off, 4 new PZERO tires are on her as well. All work on the car has been done by myself a Master Volvo Tech and now private shop owner. The parts are all from Eurosport Tunning and no expense has been spared in any of the work.<p>Sean

Re: 1FASTBOX 4 sale (1FASTBOX)

I've seen this car in person and can only say that it is literally the best 850 I have ever seen.<p>Sean has done the most insane job keeping this machine showroom clean, inside and out. The motor compartment is cleaner than a convent and the interior is for lack of better words, new. Now add the fact that Sean was the best damn Volvo master mechanic in Canada...is now the sucessful owner of his own shop...and loves this car, and you have the small picture.<p>I personally vouch for this ride. Had I not spent all of my $$$ on the C70 project, this yellow box would be mine.<p>Good luck with the sale Sean and nice to hear from you again. (Please tell your wife I say howdy too.)<p>Cheers,<br>Prospero

Ah, yes, I remember.<br>Awesome vehicle. Sean’s right: it’s as clean as any you’re going to find. Took several pictures of it at last summer’s VCOA Meet in KC.<p> <IMG SRC="http://idisk.mac.com/digital_dreamer/Public/2005_VCOA_Meet/_DSC0072.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Although I didn’t talk with Sean personally, I certainly had fun chasing his car during the Sunday Scenic Rally. It wasn’t a race, but we certainly made it one! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Sean may have kept the lead, but I won the poker hand! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Best of wishes on your sale! Hope it finds a good home.<p>regards,<br>MAJ

It is the cleanest one in North America, and lots of people can vouch for that. The car has 235,000km ine these pics and the car was put away a couple of weeks after. Motor and trans are 100%, comperssion test can be provided, oil changes every 3-5000km with Mobile 1 syn oil and at same time trans got a fluid drain and fill, fluid very clean. Car gets a complete 96k inspection/service each year when fall comes so spring car is ready, t-belt not due for a while but can be done upon request before delivery. Car storage each year done properly not just parked. Runs like a champ adn is one to, lots of first place awards and most recent 2005 VCOA class winner. Drove it to Kansas City and back 4500km round trip no problems, each road trip al surfaces facing frontwards on car get taped with blue painters tape to avoid stone chips and sand blasting of paint.<p> <p>Here is a spec list and some pics I want $26,000 canadian for her.<p> <p>Thanks for the interest!<p> <p>Sean<p> <p> <p> <p>Spec list<p> Eurosportunning mods<p>-monster ECU<p>-euro style side markers,turn indicators and headlight glass<p>-Magnacore competition plug wires<p>-MSD Blaster coil<p>-NGK Irridium sparl plugs<p>-Koni adjustable struts/shocks<p>-SAM lowering springs<p>-Adjustable stabalizer links<p>-Oversized intercooler<p>-reverse IC pipe kit 3"<p>-Big bore throttle body, larger than non-turbo<p>-Samco coolant hoses<p>-stainless steel bolt caps<p>-stainless steel brake flex hoses<p>-cold air intake<p>-Big brake kit front 13" 2 piece rotors, 4 piston Brembro<p>-Big Brake rear 13" discs, 4 piston Brembro<p>-H&R 15mm wheel spacers<p>-headlight eye brows, texture/paint to match bumpers<p>-headlight wiper delete kit<p>-Plasma headlight/fog light bulbs<p>-polished strut brace<p>-carbon fibre rear trunk lid cover<p>-carbon fibre throttle cable cover<p>-carbon fibre front air splitter<p> <p>OTHERS<p> <p>-1996 850 R rear wing<p>-140hrs polishing<p>-darker titan wheels (5)<p>-relocated horns<p>-custom grille<p>-pod boost gauge<p>-Volvo carbon fibre spark plug cover<p>-Volvo sub-frame gaurd<p>- trunk mounted changer<p>-model year 200 washer jets<p>-chrome plated battery terminals<p>-Volvo sunroof air deflector<p>-Optima Blue top battery<p>-Volvo rear mud gaurds<p>-P-Zero tires<p>-Volvo factory car cover<p>

Re: 1FASTBOX 4 sale (1FASTBOX)

One word describes this car which I have seen in person very many times, AMAZING!!! Every one that has ever seen it will tell you the same. Knowing the owner personally, I can tell you this car is absolutely meticulously maintained and tons and tons of unparalleled knowledge, pride and hard work have been poured into this automobile. As much as it hurts me to see it go, I think this should make the main page. George, I think you'd agree. This car is a VOLVO of ICONIC STATUS and very important to VOLVO and the VOLVO FAITHFUL!!! I hope I can sleep at night knowing it's not in Sean's hands and hope that it ends up in the hands of someone remotely worthy. So here's to you Sean and ONEFASTBOX!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Forever live Team USA and Team CANADA <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>

Thanks for the positive feedback from most of you, yes the price is starts at 26k cnd, you could buy the other car for $8500 usd or more and mod it, pay someone to do it and yes 15k usd will get you alot, but it will not get you this car. This is not to defend my price but I will not give the car away, for $8500 I will drive it as hard as she will go for a day at Mosport race track and end it in the turn three wall! That is a clean car and someone will get a good deal for that price.<p> How about this, you guys let me know what you think the car is worth! Not to often in the sale of a car does the price you start at go up, so set it and deal.<p>The car is in this section due to the fact I wanted the 850 crew to see it first.<p>This was just to see if anyone wanted the car, my other plan is to daily drive it in the summer and keep my other T-5R for winter duty.

Re: (lax01)

<p>EXACTLY!!!! I think a lot of people here who haven't attended the Volvo meets over the past 10 years won't really understand this car. <p>Sean and his T5-R represent the first to take 'moding' volvo's to another level. The car has won several first place prizes, and as been the 'poster' volvo for many sites (ex. eurosporttuning, swedespeed etc..). Its a bit of an 'icon' now.<p>This is not just another used yellow R for sale. Understand that. Its a special car. I'm not going to argue the price....its Sean's car, its Sean's price...if you don't like it, don't buy it! Just let the man try to sell his car. <p>The car may have high km (actually the milage is right on for a car that age)...but I can personally confirm that it is as close to new as possible.<br>Sean has been servicing my Volvo's for the past few years...he truly knows his volvo's. <p>Anyone who gets this car will be very lucky indeed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
