2007 S60R M66 manual, 144K

Titanium gray, Nordkap interior
Very clean and original last year R with M66 manual 6-speed
Adult Volvo enthusiast owned, loved and maintained. Maintenance records included. Second owner, purchased in 2014 with approximately 88K miles.
Currently at 144,450 miles. I have put approx. 35k miles on the car since timing belt replacement in 11/15.

Carfax, shows dealer maintenance by original owner and one fender bender that was repaired. No accidents in my ownership, clean title. I met and bought from original owner in PA.

Car runs and shifts very strong. Handling is great/tight. Kept it stock for longevity. Never launched or raced. Garage kept.

Ran Mobil 1 synthetic oil and 93 octane fuel during my ownership. All work performed by local reputable independent shops and myself. I would consider this a Stage 0 all original with exception of brakes and head unit. One of the cleanest I have seen in PA and stands up to those around the country. No rust. Cleaned undercarriage twice a year.
Not always a daily driver, this was my dream car in the garage. I have other Volvos...

Engine:
Runs extremely well. Consumes some oil now, but the car tells you when it’s a half quart low. Considered switching to blend or conventional oil. Engine bay is very clean.
M66 Trans shifts smooth and strong, original clutch. Fresh fluid.

Exterior:
all original owner blemishes are minor enough that I never fixed them. None from my ownership. Rash on rear left bumper corner. Door dings. Minor curb rash on 17” pegs from PO, no curbs where I live/park. It’s as clean as any original paint job I have seen basically.

Interior: Leather is very clean, especially fronts. Pioneer head unit by P.O. With USB and other hookups to devices in console and a mic for phone/bluetooth connectivity. All speakers work as new. Original head unit included. Rear seats have some wear. Original floor mats but I use Rensi all weather mats on top in front.

Everything works as it should including 4C suspension, DSTC, sunroof, A/C and auto sensing wipers. Exception being steering wheel audio controls due to head unit replacement.

No CEL lights.

Maintenance:
Inspect and replace Haldex fluid. 90k mi.
Replaced timing belt and serpentine belt, 106,400 mi. Water pump inspected and deemed ok. (Swedeworks)
Replaced spark plugs - NGK Iridium and Bosch coil packs.
Sway bar end links
Replaced LF axle shaft and inspect Haldex/angle gear (Car Crafters)
Replaced all four Monroe 4C struts. (Car Crafters). 130k
New LF headlight bulb
Replaced/upgraded all four brake rotors and pads- Prostop slotted/ drilled rotors and Akebono pads. 141k.
Replaced manual gearbox fluid (K&S)
Replaced RF inner/outer tie rod ends (K&S)
New emergency brake pads and hardware
Professionally rebuilt original alternator (Trappe Generator)
Replaced coolant
Replaced steering rack with a used rack from Erie Vovo, with 80k miles (Car Crafters)
Alignments - 3 recently, drives as straight as possible
New Continental Extreme Contact tires with under 4k miles. Awesome tires!
New prostart 900 CCA battery from wal mart, made by Deka, here in PA
New Volvo air filter and K&N for spare.
Replaced steering angle sensor
Fresh detail and carnauba wax, leather cleaned and conditioned.
I wax the door jambs and all, have a look at pics. All glass is flawless. I enjoy keeping cars clean and running well.
Fresh oil change.
New hood lift strut
Inspected till 4/20.

Dealer inspected/scanned at Stillman Volvo 8/19 and the tech said it’s one of the cleanest R’s they have seen. May require lower control arms in near future. Needed a steering angle sensor, done.

Full disclosure because I am a Volvo guy:
Mouse damage to engine/hood insulation.
Could use a new charge pipe over engine, easily available on ipd or others. Has no effect on performance.
On my list was breather maintenance, LCAs, possibly cam seals if needed.

Includes original window sticker, spare tire, jack, lug wrench, tow hook, manual, head unit, and both switchblade style remote keys with new batteries.
I’m an honest guy and wouldn’t try to pretend this is something it’s not. It’s all there and mint. Must see.
Car is sitting in garage now, not driven to keep clean, just awaiting new owner.

$6,000 OBO.

This is a very clean, well-sorted example of the 07 SR manual, the last year made which is what I wanted. It is all stock; ready to drive, store, or modify as desired.
Offering to Swedespeed community, deserves a proper owner. I thank you all for all of the knowledge I have gained on this vehicle through the forum so I am offering it to y'all.

Prefer a phone call. 484.366.556two
Prefer cash or certified check.
Prefer local pickup but could discuss shipping.
Test drives for those with cash in hand

Thanks for looking/reading! - Marc

Nice looking R.
For anyone interested, this R is about 20 minutes from me and I can look at it and drive it if anyone wants me to.
If anyone knows R's I think I qualify since I've owned three since June 2003 and bought and sold over 30 of them!

If you only was in Louisiana this would be sold!
Fly and drive or have it shipped.

I sold my SR to a guy who drove out from the midwest and did fly-and-buy's for my last three cars. Don't be afraid travel for the right vehicle. :thumbup:

This is the exact car that I've been looking for, I just listed up my current DD for sale, if this is still available after mine sells I will make the trip from Michigan to come buy this thing.
