I literally smell interior stench of a neglected Volvo looking at these photos...
Tip off here...
It has a salvage title due to a low speed accident that did not set off any airbags.
WTF?

Chances are the seller has already gotten his money back out of the V70R in SF, he pretty much admitted it. Nothing wrong with that, $6.5k for the mileage is pretty good, but salvaged title dampens the mood, even if it was super minor. I wouldn't pay over 4k for it. It's a pretty crusty representation of one of the VR's. No doubt it will sell for $6ish, but it'll need plenty of tinker-time.

I'll never understand why people leave the carpet floor mats in their cars, regardless of the season.

Unbearable stench should make you utterly miserable and force to buy a new car with new carpet mats in about 3-4 years.

Here's a 2005 M66-swapped V70 R currently on BaT. It's a flip from a previous BaT auction where it went for $16.2k just four months ago :shock:

Hmm.

Buyers remorse set in awful fast with that one.

I recall those leakdown & compression numbers were, um, suspicious. The guy that sold that a few months back didn’t even own the car a full year & he bought it for something ridiculous like $16.9 in 2019.

A factory M66 is a future collectors' car. A DIY swapped one is not. I don't understand these $16k valuations at all.

Sold 3 times in 3 years, each time for over $16,000.

Good to know I’ll be able to retire early I guess :)
