He's still working on his price, I think he'll post something soon. He sent me pics, it's a cherry T-5R that's for sure. I made him an offer but I think a trade for my radio flyer didn't pass his sniff test...

Thanks for your interest. Difficult to gauge price. There’s a T5R posted on eBay for $7999. Nice exterior but interior a little weak. Mine is outstanding inside and out.

8k is steep honestly as it is. Realistically top you'll probably get for is 5-6k my guess. GLWS

Was it you that Volvo emailed you asking if you wanted to sell it to Vcna?

One owner yellow with low miles and excellent condition is certainly worth a premium.

Good luck with the sale. I have had mine for 6 months now and really love it.

Thanks! Took me a while before deciding to part with the T5R and, a lot of interest in the car has been expressed. Last vintage I sold was an MGB-GT, very different from the T but fun to drive. Miss that car a lot!

I disagree.

http://www.swedespeed.com/artman2/p...Spotless_23_000-mile_1995_Volvo_850_T-5R.html

And that was over 5 years ago. These cars, WHEN THEY ARE PERFECT, can definitely command prices approaching, if not over, $10k.
That car was far far away from being perfect! And I completely disagree with the article. When it was listed on ebay, I instantly offered $15K to have the owner hold the car until for me to see it in person which I did days later. It was not parked on blocks, none of the tires matched and drivers side quarter panel was repainted. Also, under carriage was freshly sprayed which freaked me out. We walked away from that car before even firing up the engine. The only reason miles were low was bec the owner got a company car and never drove this. It sat in his condo parking garage.

Once, I pointed out all of the issues, their response was -"Would you offer $8K for it"…. I literally had the transport truck on site an still walked away.

PS: I had one that had 32K on it when it went to a collector in Canada…..so I know what they look like when they are mint

Back to this car…… Barry, does this car have ANY paint work? What is the condition of the original wheels since it is pretty much impossible to match the OEM paint? I am assuming it doesn't have any dings, dents,paint chips & etc based on you description. I am also assuming that all the service it up to date based on time on such items like timing belt.

It is a very good looking car and I still have a soft spot for them!

Thank you!

Replaced the belts within last year. Give me a call if you're really interested. It's a very good looking car that looks better with age... still turns lots of heads!
