Worked with the owner for more than 6 months and now the car will have a fresh start. It hasn’t been on the road since 2015, but is in surprising good shape. It should look presentable with a couple new bumpers and a polish. We’ll assess it at that point and go from there.

Original paint and in tact interior.



The car has 103,XXX miles on it BTW.

Good luck with the restoration
I spent 6+ months tracking down a 1998 V70T5M and getting to my shop.
Almost done restoring it.

Great find. Was it local? I’m glad the car is in the right hands. Looking forward to the transformation.

It was in Monterey...... spotted by another enthusiast who posted it on our NorCal group called VOCCAL.

The car has been passed on to another long time enthusiast and retired Volvo body man. I need to finish my red car and don’t have the time this car deserves.

It’s in good hands and I will post updates on his progress.

I’m glad to hear its in the hands of another Volvo enthusiast. Can the new owner visualize a black track wagon ;-).

I can, but he’s a purist and wants to restore it as a nice daily driver.
