Seattle area part out 94 na 854 and 98 S70 GLT

Post by Mstrshkbrnnn » Wed Feb 05, 2020 8:34 pm

hey guys I live in the Seattle area, and unfortunately its time to part out two Volvos. one is a 94 na 854, and the other is a 98 s70 glt. the s70 is in almost perfect condition cosmetically, except for a stain on the rear bench, and a dent on the rear driver door. tan interior, and yes the door cards are peeling. the 850 on the other hand is rough, but the front seats have no rips, just cracks. ill be posting the cars on craigslist inviting people to come rip parts off before I have them crushed. just wanted to let you guys know first. message me if theres anything these two cars may have that you need. ill hit you back w a price, and whether or not the car has it, or if im willing to let that specific part go

No luck selling them 'as is' in Seattle, Craigslist? Tragedy to crush them when they could be someone's TLC project! If your post-signature is anything to go by, looks like you got them pretty cheap- there's no shame selling them 'at a loss', considering the value you extracted from their service!

Yeah, and if the S70's only issue is a stain on the seat, you could probably sell it whole for cheap to make it easier. The 850 sounds like a parts car though for sure.

If you haven't already, post this in the classifieds section too. You may get more attention there.
