      1996 855 Platinum w/ Charcoal Interior

      Clean 1996 Volvo 850 Platinum Wagon.

      Just Serviced:
      -Heater Core w/ Coolant Flush (Volvo Coolant)
      -Zimmerman Rotors all around with Ceramic Brake Pads
      -New Driver's Side Rear Caliper
      -PCV Service (Breather Box)
      -Synthetic Oil Change
      -Coolant Reservoir
      -Full Tune up
      -Full Suspension (Koni Suspension, Lowering Springs, Control Arms, End Links)
      -Passenger Side Axle
      -Exhaust bracket
      -Driver's side wheel bearing
      -Alignment
      -Windshield wipers

      Timing belt w/ tensioners done a few years ago, but has not been driven a lot in the past few years.

      I am sure I am forgetting a few things that have recently been done.

































      As for the wheels, these were the wheels that came on the car. I know most of the Platinums had Persus wheels, but have seen a few with these Naiad wheels. Please don't make a 50 post thread discussion in my for sale ad about what wheels came with the car. I have a few other wheels options that can come with the car instead of these wheels.

      The side mirrors work fine, they were pushed in as I had it stored in the garage. I will take more pics this week, but wanted to get a couple of pics up. I had someone interested, but it seems that it is becoming more of a hassle than it is worth as they are trying to sell their car to fund the purchase and it is just taking too long.

      The interior is very clean, the passenger front seat could use a re-dye, but there are no rips.

      No warning lights on dash. ~123K on dash, odometer works. The car wasn't driven much over the past few years as the previous owner had a DWAI, so had a restricted license. He was not over the legal limit, so it wasn't a full DUI.

      $4500.

      Please PM me if interested or have any questions. The car is located in Westchester, NY.

      Nice looking car! Yeah I did all four of my wheel bearings at once. Pretty easy job actually.

      I have never understood the "but it doesn't have the right wheels" complaint on Platinums. They are 16x6.5 and aren't really anything special.

      I like the way they Persus look on the Platinums but the fact that they don't clear 302s is really kind of a deal breaker.
