P80 what's still Original on your high mileage P80?

Post by abscate » Sat Apr 11, 2020 5:37 am

Thread rules

High mileage is about 150k or more, 250k km for our Canadian friends.

What parts came over from Sweden or Belgium and are still working faithfully today ?

95 non-turbo 850. 250,000 miles

This is one heck of a great challenge.

Forgive the gonzo narrative.

Still Original:
Rims/Wheels. Body panels except driver's side fender. All glass. Headlights (not bulbs), Tail Lights (the fog lights are even the original bulbs), Seats. Power windows, Power mirrors (but not heat spots). Dome light. Engine, transmission. Engine Mounts (not torque mounts). ECU. Rear Delta link control arms. Fuel Lines. Wiring. Dash (but not dash pad). AC condenser (if you don't count all the Fender picks that I used as shims). Evaporator, Expansion tank. Alternator. Power Steering Pump. Subframe. Speakers in the front. Carpet (complete with lots of antifreeze!). Door Panels! Rear view mirror. Sunvisors. Speedometer and related gauges. Air vents. The Glovebox is physically the same one, although modified.

Oh and I have the original door sticker and owners manual.

I think I have replaced everything else... :-D

For the four p80 Volvos I look after the range is 145k - 285k, and they've still got original:
2/4 plastic document clips on the driver's side windshield (my favorite accessory)
1/4 firewall coolant couplers
4/8 windshield wiper squirters
15/16 factory wheel bearings

Focusing just on the V70 with 285k miles:
engine long block including valve stem seals
ground straps
intake and exhaust manifolds
transmission
all of the metal brake lines, master cylinder etc
e-brake cables but they are rusted/fused :)
3/4 wheel bearings (replaced a rear one by mistake - was actually a noisy brake shield)
sway bars front and rear
all interior that you can see (seats, dash, door panels etc)
window regulators (OMG so slow!)
all climate control parts except blower motor
all side window glass, tailgate glass
all wiper motors, even the stupid headlight ones that I unplugged
tail lights
'95 854 T5-R, Motronic 4.4, 185k
'96 855 NA, 145k
'98 S70 NA, 220k (living out west)
'98 V70, T5 tune-injectors-turbo, LPT engine, 286k
'06 S60 R, 167k
'99 Camry V6 :shock: 125k
gone: '96 NA 850 210k, '98 NA V70 182k
