1995 850 T-5R Cream Yellow, 169k, South Jersey

Post by Grapewhistle1 » Wed Dec 18, 2019 5:58 pm

Unfortunately I’m looking to sell my 1995 T-5R as some unforeseen life events are twisting my arm. I purchased the car in April and have only put about 2,700 miles on it.

I am the 4th owner, with the 3rd owner being a sales manager at a Volvo dealer, and the 2nd owner being a Volvo Certified Master Technician. Services up to date, tires at their last service were 7s all around, brakes 11s in front 7s in the rear. Timing belt was done 4.5k miles ago.

Modifications include:

Clear side marker lights
18 inch Pegasus wheels
Vogtland sport springs
EST cat back exhaust
JVC Double DIN head unit
EST Cold Air intake
Speedtuning 15psi ECU tune
IPD Strut tower brace

Other than meticulous cleaning and detailing, the only things done during my ownership were removing jeweled HID headlights and a badge-less grille from IPD to replace with stock ones; and applying an anti-corrosion compound to the under carriage and certain spots in the engine bay. Both the headlights and grille will be included if the buyer wants them (can be seen in the trunk photo). Also included is a car cover, carpeted floor mats, all weather mats, two remotes/keys, manuals, and touch up paint.

Front fenders were resprayed, front bumper was refinished by the previous owner due to a crack, and has a few small paint chips. The paint is in overall good shape and the interior in very good shape. The panels under the headlights were resprayed by one of the previous owners and didn’t get a perfect match. It’s very hard to notice unless in the perfect light, which thankfully I had when taking photos so you may be able to see it.

The only issues with this car are the AC could go for a recharge, and the locking pin for the gas cap door intermittently will not disengage. But is easily manipulated with a butter knife, screwdriver, or just cycling the remote locks a few times.

Asking $9,000. Hoping that this car can go to an enthusiast that will take care of it as I had planned to. PM for any questions and I’ll give you my email/cell. Thanks!

Rich

Beautiful car! Too much on the go now but would love the car in this color. May be worth noting where in the world you are approximately.

Good luck with the sale and hope an enthusiast takes it.

Location is in the title, however you’re absolutely right as I could be more specific :lol: . Vehicle is currently located in my garage in Southern New Jersey, about 15 minutes inland from Atlantic City.

That's ok. My US geography is rusty. Didn't where South Jersey was! Man it sucks getting old!

Price drop to $7,500 firm. Life events are forcing me to really move on this.
