I am selling a 1997 850R that I picked up about a month ago.

I bought this car from a guy who was going to trade it in and I would rather see an enthusiast get it so I picked it up.

156K
Has all five Volans in above average condition.
New General G Max tires in June
Timing belt and Water pump June 2014
Rear Struts April 2015
Cam Seal August 2014
Front wheel bearing April 2015
Sway bar link replaced December 2015
Newer Radiatior and Hoses October 2015
Oil Changed less than 500 miles ago with German Castrol
IPD TME exhaust which is quiet but sounds good
It has a tune (My best guess is the ipd but I cannot say for sure)
Volvo all weather mats
No cracks in front bumper
Interior is in pretty good shape
Odometer does work
Clean autocheck
Runs and drives nice

Issues:

Power locks unlock themselves when the fuse is in. From what I see it is one of the actuators causing this but I have not had the time to chase down the issue. Fuse is removed and I just lock manually.
Headliner is starting to sag on passenger side and along the back window
Wires to rear spoiler are disconnected so it says a tail light is out while pushing the brake pedal
Ding in rear pass quarter panel
Rear bumper has some paint issues.
Steering wheel is missing the black leather for the top of the wheel

Phone number: 419-788-5577. Call or text.

Price: $2500 obo

Nice! how many owners before you? Does it come with the pennies in the OBD-II cover, haha, i used to keep change in there two...
Could you PM me the autocheck results?

Hmm it does look a bit different with the paint matched trim- more s70 than 850 looking. Am i missing something or does this trim look normal for this year?
Local sale only or would you ship? Could we get a picture of the engine bay maybe?
Regardless, Good price.

Trim has been painted, originally black. It does make it look quite a bit different.

I would consider shipping although I would prefer a local sale.

Pictures of the engine will be added tomorrow.

Thanks!

You mentioned a ding in passenger quarter panel, but I can't see it. How big?

Also, how many owners before you? Looking for an S70 T5 or 850R, been mourning the sale of my 99 red S70 t5 since December of 2014. I miss performance and subtlety of the 5 cylinder turbo.

It's not very big and it would be an easy paintless dent repair. It is along the top near the trunk, maybe the size of a penny.

I'll have to look at the autocheck again tomorrow but I think it is four.
