95 855 turbo, manual+some; project or parts

Hello everyone..

I found a V70 R I am interested in buying but would need to sell or part this car out first...lots of good parts



more pictures: http://picasaweb.google.com/bf...tlink

1995 Volvo 850 Wagon Red
~195k Miles
Manual swap (<50k miles ago...it was done before i bought the car 3 years ago)
euro T5R clutch
RICA-14psi ECU
Bilstine HDs
850r front heated seats, door inserts, step panels
16T turbo
Samco intercooler hoses
SS brake lines
Top engine mount bushing
Thicker rear sway (not sure what its off of, but it was thicker than the one i had on there)
Apline head unit

Car would have the factory 16" turbo wheels on them...unless you really wanted the 17"s and we worked something out

The car is mechanically in decent shape...the 16T is on its way out but I have the old 15g i can put back on
The body and interior are hurting...
Hood and roof clear coat is peeling
Bumpers are peeling
Dent in rear door and roof (both would take a second look to notice)
Interior is showing its age (a few missing pieces of trim etc..) but the seats are in good shape front and rear...including the originals which i would throw in.

Car is located in NC/SC...but i enjoy a good road trip too
$3750 obo

If you are interested in any of the parts (manual swap w/ECU, shocks, turbo etc) let me know and I may just part it out if there is enough interest

Just curious how you arrived at your asking price...

Re: 95 855 turbo, manual+some; project or parts (King Tut)

it just was sorta a guesstamate based on how much I paid for it (3800) plus the parts i added (seats, ss brake lines, samco hoses, upper engine mount bushing, HP+ pads, thicker rear sway, prob a few small things i am forgetting), minus the wear, tear and body issues (the paint was already peeling a little when i bought it)...and i guess i kinda thought about how much the good parts would be worth if i parted it...

Yes the body/paint is in bad shape, but its nothing a paint job wont fix...both dents are barely noticeable and the interior trim pieces can be easy re-attached (i still have them)

The car has had a lot of work done to it in the last 50k miles. It was owned by Justin from Houston who posted the car on VS back in the day. He had done ALOT of work on the car and replaced alot of wearable components (new radiator, new shock top mounts, timing belt...) its a long list that I saved from his original post. I can send to anyone who is interested.

I feel its a reasonable price for a fast, unique, reliable car that with a weekends worth of work would be nice, and with a paint job would be a great car for another 5 years and 50k miles...

and its OBO...so if your interested make me one.
