1998 S70 T5 SE - Vancouver, BC - $1200

Post by sventastic »

Hi everyone, it has come time for me to either part out my 1998 S70 T5 SE, or sell the car as a whole. I'd like to give it a few weeks before actually pulling any parts in case there is someone interested in buying the whole car. If you're handy with an engine hoist this would be a great project. I have detailed maintenance records for the car's entire life. It needs to be gone by the end of this year before I go back to school in January so I need to do something about it. I'm located near Vancouver, BC and should be able to ship most parts. It was well-maintained my family and myself since 2005, from 70,000 to 259,000km

The car got rod knock last September and was replaced quickly by my 850R since I didn't have the time or space to fix it. It has been sitting for just less than a year now. It's a T5 SE model which is a Canada-only market car and came with goodies like R door cards, aluminum door sills, alcantara seats, wood+leather steering wheel and shift knob, and a 4x50W under-seat amp.

Exterior is 426 Silver, interior is Charcoal

If there's an item you're interested in, please let me know so I can gauge the interest here! There are a handful of things that I'd like to keep for my 850 such as the 16T, injectors, steering wheel+shift knob, door checks, and a few other brand-new parts that I had installed last summer (mainly engine mounts).

Items I'd like to sell off the top of my head:
Leather R door card inserts (panels are too big to ship)
Aluminum door sills
Seats (local only for obvious reasons)
SC-816 radio in great shape - possibly the 4x50W amp as well
Most parts within the engine bay
Basically any interior bits
Rear spoiler
Near-mint floor mats (rubber mats were always on top)
Rubber winter mats - driver's has a hole in it
Waterfall grille
XC grille
Headlights + corners
Tail lights
Pretty much any switches - all are clean and do not have the typical stickiness. A few have burnt-out bulbs
21mm rear sway bar (stock T5 bar)
Fog lights - one is nearly brand-new
Front arm-rest - cupholders slightly broken (classic)
6-disc CD changer
Side mirrors

850R steering wheel and shift knob NOT for sale - I have the S70's wheel and shift knob in my R because they're way nicer

Wow, way too nice of a car to be parted out. Too bad you're not local, I've got a running engine for it.

Just how it goes sometimes unfortunately : ( If there had been an engine for it in the right time and place last fall I'd still be driving this car and never purchased the 850R

Matt if you happen to see this, could you please move this thread to the parts section? The car is being parted out. I don't seem to be able to PM you to ask you this

Update: the car is being parted out

Parts sold so far are:
Leather R door cards
Floor mats
Rubber winter mats
Info switch
6-disc CD changer
Fog lights and fog light relays
Lower bumper grilles

Matt, I still don't seem to be able to PM you so hopefully you see this. I don't seem to be able to edit my first post to update with relevant information so if you're able to help me with that it would be awesome. If you could also change the title of the post to reflect the car only being parted out it would be great as well. "1998 S70 T5 SE part-out - Vancouver, BC" would be ideal

I know this is an old post, but do you happen to still have the center arm rest? How much do you want for it?

I'm in Aurora, Ontario.

Hi Herb, sorry I haven't been on here for awhile. I decided to use the center arm rest in my 850R so it is not available.

I ended mostly stripping the car and selling off quite a few parts, but have been away for school since the start of the year. I'll likely start up a new parts sale thread once I'm back home in May
