By a good bit... it's a nice looking car, but it doesn't have a turbo egg crate grille and it's far from perfect cosmetically. Only 94k miles, but it likely needs a little work. $2,500 car on a good day... $6k is insane.
Dealers are crazy... lol. They'll probably defend their outrageous pricing with "it's a classic" or "Volvos are becoming cool".

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

Cool, you wanna buy the one off my 940 for $2k? Then I won't mind paying for an egg crate!

It's odd being that it's a 740, I've seen some base model 940 turbos, but never a 7.

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.

Yeah, that back seat is awful! Even being NA, it's still worth picking up. Any manual wagon is worth a look!
