Default 55,000 mile 850

Might be for sale very soon, next few days.
Condition very good, apart from a dent on rear wing.
Just been serviced, running silky-smooth. As it should be, with mobil 1 in the engine and genuine volvo oil in the gearbox.
Full volvo history for first 20? years, diy thereafter.
2 owners from new.
Saloon, petrol, 2.0 litre 20v. Manual. Clutch good.
Not the fastest but a very nice car to drive. Everything works. Years MoT.
towbar, hasnt been used for many years.
colour - metallic greenish with a hint of turquoise. I like.
Alloys good, decent tyres.
Whats it worth ? whats the level of interest ?

didnt know there were any messages Dai, shall look.
(I sold that camper on just as soon as I got it fixed, gearbox fault, what a pain)

23000 miles almost zero hassle. Nice reliable car. Quiet and comfy, corners very well. Only real fault in several years was a sticking caliper, ended up getting a pair of recon front calipers, new discs and pads etc. Obviously have replaced a couple of tyres, wiper blades, bulbs etc.

The good ladys dog likes to leap around inside, she needs an estate to shut mr baskerville in the back. Couple of bits of interior trim damaged. Nothing serious.
