Default 850 t5r or 850r wanted (MANUAL ONLY)

850 t5r or 850r manual car wanted. A big ask I know as they are so rare . I want a full or nearly full service and maintenance history preferably, mileage isn't a major concern but I don't want a project car I want one that is ready to drive etc and in good mechanical order and general good condition.

Hi.. I'm going to sell my 850 T5R estate which has been the family workhorse for the last 15 years.. its all original, no mods.. yellow with black interior, 5 speed manual gearbox.. odometer stopped recording at 191k some years ago, but I use it infrequently now..passed its MOT in May, but shortly after I think the exhaust has blown.. thought you might be interested, even though there will be work needed..

Cheers guys. I settled on a 98 v70r manual in the end, not as boxy and cool but better built imho

Default 850 T5R - wanted

I read that you only want a manual car but they are rare as can be. Ive just finished full rebuild of 1995 T5R saloon its auto but fully restored so thought I would mention it in passing. Rare Volvo 850 T5R saloon, one of the last iconic ‘sleepers.’ I’ve rebuilt this car over the past 18 months. No rust and everything has been reworked. Some highlights: new suspension front and rear inc Koni shocks, new springs and all new Volvo hardware, upgrade grooved and drilled discs, cam belt and serpentine belt replaced, AC completely overhauled new compressor and dryer etc, seats completely refurbished all electric and heat and memory, new windscreen, PCV system replaced, engine fully serviced all compressions good runs smoothly, pulls as it should, anti roll bar, steering rack, drive shafts overhauled, door cards refurbished, headlights upgraded (originals come with the car), full repaint to original spec. happy to discuss with you if this is of interest.
