according to this post on volvospeed there were 101 V70 T5m's imported for model year 1999.

for some reason, i thoght there were 20 for 1999.

does anyone have another reply from VolvoNA that can confirm this?

I'm most interested in:
total V70's for 1999
total V70T5's
total V70T5m's

fyi, i contacted Volvo NA today regarding production numbers and received this:

Thank you for contacting Volvo Cars of North America regarding (insert model) production specifications.

We've recently been receiving an influx of these inquiries but unfortunately, due to limited resources, we're unable to accommodate these requests.

We genuinely appreciate your enthusiasm and regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Kind Regards,

hmm interesting response, wonder why all of a sudden they are "receiving an influx" of people asking for production numbers of T5M's. strange.

Hopefully they reply, would be interested to know how many like mine were made in 1998 as I've only seen the list that you mentioned.

They aren't, they're receiving an influx of people asking about production numbers in general, because of a thread in the R forum. I'll find it.

Don't see anything there about 99 T5Ms (or any Gen 1 except for those couple of R's).
Booby does not deliver unless I missed something here

What you missed is the fact that everybody was asking Volvo for production numbers. They were entertaining the requests at first, and then stopped because they were getting overwhelmed with requests.

Lol, could you seriously not figure that out? :facepalm:

Of course but the OP wanted production numbers for a 99 T5M or did that fact elude you?

"according to this post on volvospeed there were 101 V70 T5m's imported for model year 1999.

Jesus christ Jim.

Reread my first post. Someone else said it was interesting that there was an influx of V70T5M production numbers requests. That's what I was responding to.

You're so quick to try and prove someone wrong. I would suggest stopping before you make a bigger fool of yourself.....

Thank you for taking the time to contact us at Volvo.

For (Imports from mid 1998 to mid 1999) We built 15,610 V70's.
Of these 517 were T5, of that 101 were T5 with Manual Trans.

Color Break out of the T5 w/ manual trans:

019 Black Paint 16
189 White Paint 15
412 Blue-Green Mt 7
417 Nautic Blue Mt 19
419 Pewter Slvr Mt 7
421 Emer Green Met 11
426 Mystic Slvr Mt 14
427 Graph Grey Mt 0
440 Desert Wind Mt 4
441 Laser Blue Met 7
601 Red Paint 1

*Most T5ms were built in 1998. I'm not certain but I've heard less than 25 were built in1999 and only 1-2 built in 2000.

I know, these were the only 2000 V70T5s in the US period, automatics or 5 speeds
(Still don't know how he managed to do it)

That list is still not a year by year breakdown but it seems to be close to what everyone thinks
I was under the impression about 50-55 98s and 20-22 99s
So on the higher end makes 79 in my original estimate so there were 20-21 more out there.
Probably 15-18 98s, and 2-4 99s.
So figure now at least (maybe more) than half are not in service, wrecked, junked, etc so what you have left is really is a rare bird

Yea the numbers are significantly higher for S70 T5Ms but for V70 T5Ms these numbers seem accurate. Of course things are a little murky now that so many people have done manual swaps.

Most likely what he did with Lev's '08 S80 to get the V8 interior in it.

What he did was have the car built with a cloned vin to get specific options and then at final assembly, assigned with its final US spec VIN.

Well, then, Volvo's numbers are off: I know of another 601 red V70 T5M here in Massachusetts. I forgot about Gary's car.

As I said earlier, don't make much of those numbers, I said they did not seem right
