Known Issues
Car was in a very mild fender bender. Utility van backed up at 5 mph at a stop sign and ran into the front of the car. Mild damage but the car was called a “Total Loss” by the other guy’s insurance because the shop wanted $3000 for a full hood and bumper, which was hardly scratched. Car is NOT SALVAGED as I have confirmed with the DMV and insurance multiple times. I can provide a CarFax to show current status. You need to be sure to check with your insurance to ensure it can be insured (each state and insurance is different). My insurance (Nationwide) in VA allow it to be insured but not for collision since insurance called it a total loss. I believe there are a couple bulbs out in the cluster and where the gear shifter is.

Price
Price Drop, $4100 OBO
Includes everything listed and I am sure there are other things I can throw in there that I have that are volvo related that I did not mention. I think I have an extra steering pump in my barn.
Other

The car is going to be fully detailed inside and out before sold. This will include a full clay bar, polish and get rid of some minor oxidation on the hood and roof. This is no cost to the owner, I will do this before it is sold. It will be done by a professional detailer in the DC Metro Area.

Hit that exterior plastic trim with some Forever Black Trim Dye and it will really sharpen up the look. Great looking car! GLWS

Is that a US car? That's very rare in that color. Was it repainted gray.
It is a US car with MPH. It is a very rare color. I know the entire history of the car from when it was sold to an Air Force Colonel

I have that and will do when it gets closer to sale. I am having it fully detailed soon.

Super rare if that paint is original and it sounds like owner has no idea what he has.....

GLWS. Should go fast.
I know exactly what I have :D I just dont have time to work/drive it anymore.

Let me see what I can get posted. I am at work and when I get home it is dark. Passenger seat is in amazing condition since no one ever rode with me on a regular basis. I will work on the engine pictures. A little dirty but nothing bad.

Come on guys! Read the builders plate!!!

Paint code 427 = Graphite Gray Metallic
Engine code 58 = B5234T5 (which is the engine for the R, wasn't used in any other 850s)
Gearbox Code 1 = M56 (The 850R never came from the factory with a M56 - would have been M59, gearbox code = 2, if manual - which makes this an impossible VIN for a UN spec car. If this was a UN market car I believe the gearbox code for the AW50-42le would be 6. This discrepancy is explained by the fact that US market cars have some sort of check code in position 9 of the VIN.)


So everything here checks out.
