Eh, I'm an ME7 guy. The '99+ cars are easier to work on for me, and WAY more responsive. RWD wagon is the way to go though, Matt!

Anyway, that's a clean car! Maybe priced a little optimistically at over $4k being NA automatic, but I hope he's able to get close to that given the excellent condition. I struggled HARD to sell my S70 GLT for $2,500, even the mint interior and like-new mechanical condition.

I've got the RWD bug, bigtime. If I jump back in (when), it's going to be a RWD wagon.
I also have been dreaming of a 960 or rebadged X,X,90 again. Recently I've had interactions on here about the 960 and S90 Executive I had back in the 90s. Back then a wagon didn't intrest me. Soccer mom territory back then!

Now I really want the wagon version! My mom had the first year 960 wagon that my family kept for a long time. What a nice wagon it was. It went through tons of abuse! The Executive sedan had a longer wheelbase than the standard 960. It drives better. So if you ever get a chance at a Executive Royal I highly recommend you jump on it though it's not a wagon. The rear doors are longer making a Executive easy to spot. Just thinking of a 960 gives me that "I want it" feeling! June

I love 960/X90s, mine was clapped out (paid $100 for it) but even with blown out suspension, it drove great. And super comfy. I didn't keep it long, but I enjoyed it.
I didn't know the LWB 960 was sold in the US, that's cool!

Special order only. At a big upcharge naturally at least during the S90 badge. There can not be many. Probably as rare as the armored option. June
