      Exterior:
      Original, nice R front bumper. Some panels replaced from garaged Polar White donor, they are shiny in contrast to the original panels which should buff nicely. Hood, L/R fenders, R/F & R/R doors replaced from donor. No panel has been repainted.

      Needs attention in front end
      Torn boot in right axle
      Koni STR.T new in box
      New front ATE calipers, OEM Volvo hoses, 302mm Brembo front/Zimmerman rear rotors, and Powerstop pads. Needs brake fluid flush.
      New OEM battery
      New fuel pump relay

      17" Volans with new 215/50-17 Michelin Primacy HP, finish on Volans is fair but straight.

      Oh, this is a strange feeling... I still feel pretty new around these parts, but I remember when you got this one. Making room for another project? Good luck with the sale!

      Thanks guys. No more projects, this is just a time and money suck as I want everything in my cars to be perfect. With how I am, I won't be happy until it's concours, and I have neither the skill nor facilities.

      Fuel pump relay seems to have solved the stalling...

      You did a fantastic job cleaning up that exterior. Hopefully the next owner will finish the job and fix up the interior. Shameless plug: I have the R steering wheel this car needs and Denton would already have it if he wasn't wanting out of this car. This is gonna be an epic ride for someone with a M59 (!!!!!) in it! GLWS.

      Thanks Jared.

      I reduced the price to $3k as-is, I just can't handle a project right now at this point in life.

      Damn, I wish I could buy this. I'm sure someone else will enjoy it much more though. Good luck with sale, and I think your price is right on point at $3k.

      To clear up the confusion it's an M56H, I don't know what I was smoking to think it was an M59. Ad corrected!

      Keeping the bump for a Solid Seller / Volvo Enthusiast!

      I purchased my current 850R wagon from Denton 3-4 years ago and he was a Perfect seller / descripto / deal maker of a Volvo Enthusiast. Should go to a good home here , I cant justify owning this sedan...

      Good luck with sale. my daughter turns 16 in 14 years... should i get it and keep it now?

      Thanks! So glad my last R went to a good home! This one isn't nearly as nice unfortunately.

      PM me if you want to think about building it up for your daughter, you'll get a repeat buyer discount LOL. Can't think of anyone I'd rather sell a car too, or a better home than yours. You would need a dolly as I wouldn't drive it out of the neighborhood and it's not registered.

      Can't put an unregistered car on a dolly; you'll either need a full trailer or register it. Any vehicle with wheels that are touching the ground needs to be registered in every state I know of.

      The more you know...it makes sense if you don't think about it.
