Default Volvo 850 AWD 1996

Hi all,

I have just joined the forum and am looking to get a bit more information about the Volvo 850 AWD and it's worth these days.

I have one and the head gasket has gone. I am currently fitting a new one and overhauling the entire engine.

The car has a little bid of body work damage but over all is solid all round.

My question to you guys is. What is the value of a good condition/immaculate 850 AWD and is it worth me spending the time and money on it.

I got the car with full service history.

Look forward to hearing some more information about the car!

Charlie.

The 850 AWD is quite rare now. This is because the AWD makes the car complicated and has a high failure rate, plus can be expensive to put right. Their really isn't any need for the AWD anyway.

The value for a really nice one may be around 2000 max, but I would suspect a good decent honest example to be more like 1500 max.

It would be worth posting some good photos with close ups, showing the true condition of the vehicle to gauge a more realistic value
