1998 Volvo V70 T5-M - Factory Manual 5 Speed Transmission (Interior and Exterior V70 R Clone)

Nautic Blue Metallic Exterior, Gray/Charcoal Interior

Purchased the car March 2013/170K Miles

October 2015/199k miles currently and is daily driven roughly 50miles per day.

Passed PA Inspection and Emissions July 2015

Transmission: smooth, no scratched gears during my ownership, clutch holds strong and is consistent. I was told the clutch was replaced around 131k miles.

Engine: strong, doesn’t burn beaucoup amounts of oil, starts/runs smooth.

Interior: Non-smoker, clean!

Exterior: It’s a 199k mile car. Hasn’t received a single dent or scratch since my ownership but the previous owners didn’t make it out as well… there are plenty of dents and scratches on this car – you will have to see in person.

You would be the third or fourth owner – I honestly don’t know and this didn’t matter to me when buying it a few years ago. I also don’t know if there were any accidents reported (None during my ownership) but I have done enough work on the car to not notice anything out of place and the car aligns properly and I have no uneven tire wear etc. With that being said, I am more than happy to supply the VIN number!

The car is located in West Chester, PA 19382

Please PM me with questions, or general talk about the sale…

Swedespeed Special! $3,800 OBO

Some notes:

-Forgot to mention V70R Aluminum door sills installed as well

-Added power steering fluid this past week, was low.

-Also wanted to mention a rogue P0442 CEL over the summer hot months - could have been gas cap, which is now new.


New owner will get a box of some goodies as well including but certainly not limited to: oil filter, extra fog bulbs and HID bulbs/ballasts, corner lights, lenses etc.
