Now for Sale: my Black 1997 T5. It is in excellent condition and a joy to drive. I plan to move to a Toyota Tacoma for a variety of reasons. $5000. I am open to reasonable offers.

Make: Volvo
Model: 850 T5 2.3L in line 5 turbo
Year: 1997
Mileage: 161,XXX miles (daily driver)
Color: Black w/Tan Interior
Transmission: Auto
Condition: Very Good to Excellent

Misc:
Columba wheels - straight and in good condition with light rash
New Hankook Optimo 727s – 205-55-16
Non-smoker car
Fogs, heated seats, tinted sunroof, Premium radio, cassette, cd, set up for iPod [radio currently unplugged; popped fuse 7; haven't had time to chase electric]

Car is extremely strong, great turbo, tight, excellent handling, no rattles. It is stock except for ipd anti-sway bars.





















Past year of work/improvements:
-ipd anti-sway bar kit
-PIAA fog bulbs
-New steering rack/rack and pinion and steering universal joint and tie rod ends
-New flame box and all associated hoses, gaskets, seals, and clamps
-Replaced mass air flow
-New OEM alternator
-New cap, dist rotor, and wire set
-Volvo battery and kit
-New emergency brake shoes
-Rear brakes, new Zimmerman rotors, Volvo pads, shim kit

Mechanically:
Powerful responsive turbo, transmission is smooth (full flush one year ago). Car is up to date on all service. Just passed NYS inspection last week.

Exterior:
Paint is glossy with minimal chips or flaws

Interior:
Front seats reupholstered in thick leather; suede headliner

Issues:
Rear bumper has crazing in paint and some chips. Extra bumper available.
Front bumper has some chipping.
Driver’s window scrapes a bit going up and down.
Carpet a bit faded.

Everything works. Clean CarFax. Clean title. Photos show air dam on sunroof. This has been removed for winter.

I really love this car but I need to simplify and get a vehicle that can take a bit more abuse.

Just saw this car in person about a week ago. Everything she said is true, and the car is beautiful. If you think you have the cleanest volvo, I dare you to compare. IMMACULATE. (front bumper looks great, and didnt seem chipped when I was staring at the beautiful new fog lights. Dont let it get you down)

Present: 1998 NA S70 / 2014 Tacoma
Past: 1997 GLT 855, 1996 NA 855, 1998 GLT-5 Built, 1998 T5, 1998 V70 T5M, 1998 S70 T5 1997 960 Sedan 1992 740 Wagon and forgetting many more..

Thanks for the kind words about the car Chris. It is in great shape and I'd love to sell to a Volvo enthusiast before the snow flies!

Anyone interested, please contact me via PM or email.

Yes, still available. Some one is looking at it this weekend. You are 1 hour 30 to 40 minutes south.

Sorry for the delay in my reply.

Consider coming up this weekend or early in the week. Not my daily driver in winter so she's sitting looking pretty and bored.
