Found a manual V70 wagon that needs some saving if anybody is interested. Not a turbo though...

Looks like a nice project for a Volvo enthusiast.
But how in the world do you destroy a back seat like that I wonder.

Btw. a manual NA is quite peppy. The stick shift really wakes them up.
They won’t stay cheap if you let that secret out.

The waterfall grill is a +2000 option on NADA
Cool, you wanna buy the one off my 940 for $2k? Then I won't mind paying for an egg crate!
I’m harvesting a egg crate of the 1998. How close toDurham are you?

2ish hours I think?

I need one for my 940... but I don't know if any egg crate fits the non-fog light front end on 9s. I think the '90 740 grille w/out fog lights was specific to that year. If not, I shouldn't have sold the one I had... those are super rare grilles.

1998 V70R $1000, deserves a new home. https://capecod.craigslist.org/cto/d/we ... 19455.html
5 miles from me, not my car, needs a new cluster, lots of other little stuff.

Definitely a possibility, but at least clusters can be had for cheap. Someone should go save that one! Looks like a decent deal if someone can pick it up for like $800.

I have the black grill from the '90 740, non-fog light. Ex-neighbor had a 940 non-fog light. The 740 grille does fit the 940 but not a 960. Looks great on a black 940. He never came up with the cash and has moved. I still have it. It could use a new home.

It's an egg crate? Hmm... I'll have to make sure the '90 grille works on the non-fog light 940s. I think '90 was supposed to be a special year with minor differences from newer and older cars.
