Help - looking for a T5R
 
Hi guys. I'm trying to track down a specific green estate T5R, original reg was M744UNU.
It featured in the in house volvo magazine in late 1995 along side both a black and gul.
Any help tracking it's whereabouts or demise would be massively appreciated?

Hi, according to the DVLA the car has not been taxed since 2005. If this helps.

Thats not good :( Lets hope its hidden in a garage awaiting a resto...

I very much doubt it, when I broke a car it took 2 years of hassling dvla to sort the v5 as scrapped and that was using an approved scrap merchant.

Most likely it's an oversight at dvla and it's been scrapped.

I certainly haven't seen it up forsale in the last 3 years and I'm currently on 210 cars out of 340 taxed and on the road.

are you saying you know the wearabouts of 210 of 340 T5R's on the road?

is there only 340 of em left?

180 850rs 140 t5rs on the road plus a few in storage so 340 guess.

But yes I have info on approx 215 now

As a general rule it's 80% estates 20% saloon and 50/50 auto / manual

So (approx) 28 t5r saloons, 112 t5r estates
36 850r sal. 144 850r estates

So if your looking for a t5r saloon man they are rare.

You think about it when was the last time you saw any saloon 850 on the road.

I unfortunately look out on 2 guls, one estate one saloon, both manuals, olive green 850r 6 sp oh and a v70r p2 in sonic blue.

But yes saloons are getting so rare, as I said try and think last time you saw any 850 saloon on the road.
