Re: 1996 855R - 609 red on charcoal. Many mods, well-maintained (t5mmmm)

All things considered, for 225k, this is one VERY nice wagon! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Nice to see when other Volvo owners take care of their rides & add a few mods to improve performance without 'going overboard'.

Good luck w/ the sale.

I stopped and aww'd at how nice this car was last weekend. Wish I could come with with the cash to buy this while i sell my sedan.

Still available as of 5/30.

Forgot to mention some other things: HID low beam kit in e-code headlights. V70 door trim, door handles and rocker covers. Later style washer nozzles. VDO boost gauge in A-pillar pod and LED air fuel trim monitor. Programmable intermittent wiper delay.

Steering rack was replaced within the last two years with genuine Volvo part.

That is a beauty... makes me miss mine (had tan interior). I'd be there if I had a 3-car garage (and an understanding wife).

I really hope this goes to a good Volvo home.

Good luck. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
