2004 Volvo V70R 6-speed manual. Titanium gray, nordkap interior. Sunroof delete, no roof rails.

I bought this V70R from the second owner in California and had the car shipped to WI. Garaged winters. I've dealt with many of the R issues, see below. I have paper service records from the previous owners. I purchased the car in 2014 with 84k miles.

I have always loved Volvos, this is my third wagon. But I don't have space for 3 cars and really want to get back into track days. The R isn't a good fit as a track car so unfortunately it's got to go to a new home.

Since I've had the car, I have done:
  • clutch, flywheel, and slave cylinder at 98k after the slave failed
  • new front 4C shocks and mounts
  • new front right axle
  • pads/rotors all around
  • new driveshaft
  • replaced angle gear collar
  • IPD motor and torque mounts
  • Eurosport non-resonated (sport) catback. Stock downpipe and sounds amazing. Stock tune.

Car has Enkei RSF5 (18x8, 5x108/5x4.25, 40mm Offset) wheels with Sumitomo HTR ZIII tires - less than 10k on the tires. Some curb on the wheels.

Original carpet mats included - I personally did not use them. I bought Volvo brand rubber mats when I bought the car. Carpet under mats is in excellent condition.

Known issues - I will try to disclose everything I can - please ask if you have any questions.
  • Parking brake seized and broke. Apparently a common issue on P2 cars that I was not aware of. Left side parking brake is inoperating. Right side does work and engages but I do not recommend using it, for fear it will also seize.
  • wear and fading on both driver and passenger outside bolsters. See photos. No tears or creases but nordkap dye has faded.
  • a few small dents on left R door - see photo. Paintless dent could likely remove
  • small scuff on rear bumper from parking lot hit - see photo. Small dent on roof - see photo
  • weeping from power steering reservoir. Apparently the 05+ part is improved. I've never noticed a change in fluid level


Car is located in Milwaukee, WI. Currently 103k miles - car is occasionally driven but it is not my daily driver. Will go into storage end of October if not sold.

SOLD

Enkei's look great!

Does "sunroof delete" mean it had one and was removed as implied?

no - no sunroof ever on this car. I think the sunroof was standard on the V70R and it was an option to delete? Maybe I'm wrong but I have only seen 1 other car without the sunroof.

This is a good looking car. Glwts! Sunroof delete is cool, and I have seen a few but they are rare.

I have one. We have twins. ;)

I wonder how much it would cost to transport to Central Oregon.....
~$500-$1000
