For Sale: 1995 Cream Yellow Volvo 855 T5-R Station Wagon
Price: $8,000

This is one of the super rare Volvo 855 T5-R station wagons in cream yellow that were ever imported into the United States. It was purchased from the original owner by my family in 1999. I have all records of maintenance performed on this vehicle and it has been a daily driver. I really do not want to sell the car so I’d like to see it go to another enthusiast.

Odometer:
~160,xxx (at the time of this posting) The odometer gear broke in 2008 and 2059 miles were driven before the gear was replaced (128,251 miles on odometer at time of replacement). I had the actual mileage pulled from the computer when it was in the shop at 157368 miles and the computer reported 159427 miles

Timing belt:
-Replaced at 101,946

Exterior:
*Neighbor rear ended the front indicator light and damaged part of the bumper light and fender, I will be getting this repaired as soon as possible.
- 100% stock
- Just had the entire exterior detailed, paint shows some wear in spots
- Scratches, small crack in front air dam
- Black rain gutter trim that runs the length of the car on both sides is flaking and will likely need to be painted or replaced

Interior:
- 100% stock, just had the carpet and seats professionally detailed
-Driver and passenger seats will not recline, might just need a new cable
-I installed a package gate but the struts that hold it up have let go, I can remove the gate and reinstall old hard ware
-Tail gate plastic rattles
-Tail gate struts need to be replaced (I plan on doing this soon)

Engine:
-100% stock still pulls strong, ~21-22 mpg mixed city and highway
-Entire ignition system replaced at 147271 miles
-Entire fuel system replaced around the same time
-Leaks some oil likely from the rear main seal

Brakes:
-Front brakes replaced at 159427 miles

Thanks for looking,
Bill

Yes, it might need some things fixed here and there but "rough" is hardly what I'd use to describe it.

I am bumping this because:

1. I can
2. I really like the car
3. I hope someone who respects it will buy it
4. I'm jelly
5. I have an 850R that I love

If you still have it then, I may be in Austin the 17-20 this month to at least look at it. Not sure what I'll be looking like money-wise.

I'll likely still have it then. Shoot me an email if you want to take a look at it when you're in town.
