Here are a few of West coast Canada cars:

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/rds/ct ... 14412.html

I had one of these but have trouble believing the claim it was ice blue. Maybe NA got that color but never seen one that color. Having said that, I think there will be little left after replacing the rust!!

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/ct ... 06574.html

Low mileage, but think they are reaching based on the possible damage to the front suspension. Running problem probably just the fuel relay.

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/ct ... 74908.html

Another oldie but goldie! Still would love a last year 65 PV544 Sport in red or white.

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/bnc/ct ... 95681.html

I wish the owner well in getting their price. Not sure the P2 XC70 commands this price even in this beautiful condition and low mileage!

That XC is really nice, but that price is a little crazy. Maybe $8k, but not $13k! Even in CAD that's high.

The C70 looks good from the two pics, but I have a feeling that was just a good angle. From the description, it's not that clean. Low mileage though, and the price isn't too bad.

Agreed on the C70. The pointers are the steering wheel does not site correctly. Sounds like it has taken a hard knock on RHS and possibly bent the steering or sub-frame/suspension. Only saving grace is the low'ish price and mileage.

2 Inch Lift - Pictures for those who want to build one and won't see the listing after it is sold.

2006 Volvo XC70 AWD wagon 100,125 miles - $7,550 (durham)

Up for sale is a very nice low mileage Volvo Cross Country wagon with lots of cool mods. I am the second owner and have maintained this car as meticulously as the first (I have the records). Everything works properly and the car is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. The goal in building this wagon was to make it more "adventure capable" and performance-oriented so it could be used in a variety of conditions and terrain within reason. I have never tested its off-road capabilities other than occasionally (rarely) driving it cautiously on a few gravel/hard packed dirt roads locally--it looks too nice to scratch up in my opinion, lol. The mod list includes: IPD front/rear sway bars with poly bushings, IPD stainless cat-back 3" turbo oval exhaust, IPD Hi-flow washable air filter, IPD aluminum alloy skid plate, IPD billet front strut bar mounts, Bad Swede 2" lift springs, Lemforder front strut plates/bearings, XC90 half shafts properly indexed (no ABS/TC warning lights), Volvo Pegasus wheels, E-trailer rear hitch (never hauled anything with it) , Volvo mud guards on all 4 corners, Rensi all-weather floor/cargo mats, some other things I've forgotten. I have a few other accessories ( Volvo cage roof rack/ cargo carrier and cross bars) for the car as well. Oil changes have been regular/frequent with full synthetic oil /Mann filters and I do a partial transmission drain (3 liters) with Volvo Aisin Type T IV trans fluid at every engine oil change. The car is from here in NC so there is no rust/corrosion and I have all the original paperwork/manuals that came with the car from the first owner. If genuinely interested (otherwise, lets not waste each others time please) in this somewhat unique XC70

It looks great. Good service history, low miles, highly favorable climate for a Volvo. Will need some maintenance as it ages but not going to fall apart nearly as quickly as many P80 AWDs with less maintenance and from other parts of the country.

bmdubya98 is probably going to say it's overpriced and he knows these markets extremely well, but IMO it's not a bad price for the condition and the market.
