      1997 850R Wagon - White/Black - 145k

      For sale is my 1997 850R Wagon. White exterior, black interior, 145k miles. I am selling this car because I bought a new daily driver. If I did not already have an 850 T5R project car, I would be keeping this one given its rarity and condition.

      VIN: YV1LW5822V2289791

      I am the second owner. I purchased the car from the original owner in 2013 with 104k miles. Clean carfax, no accidents. Carfax shows regular servicing at a local Volvo dealer from new until my ownership. The car was garaged by the original owner, and garaged for 90% of my ownership. I am not a smoker, nor was the original owner.

      The car is stock, aside from a strut bar and a few cosmetic upgrades (rear spoiler, euro rails, sidemarkers, e-code headlight lenses and turn signals, euro wide angle mirrors, HIDs, V70 tail lights, V70 3rd brake light, Pegs, T5-R steering wheel, stainless steel exhaust tip). The seats in the car are from a lower mileage 1998 V70R. I did a charcoal interior swap and prefer the V70R seats because they look cooler and are more comfortable IMO. All power and heated seat functions work as they should. Oil changed every 3k-4k miles with an OEM filter. The car also has a GROM Bluetooth adapter installed so you can stream music through the stock radio and also talk on the phone hands-free.

      Below is an extensive list of everything that has been done to the car since my ownership. All parts used are new OEM Volvo parts unless otherwise indicated. I maintain this car religiously. Of particular note, at 112k the PCV, timing belt, water pump and pulleys were replaced, and at 128k the valve stem seals and RMS were replaced by a Volvo master tech. The underside of the dashboard and mounting tabs are fully rebuilt and reinforced with fiberglass. See my writeup for more details: https://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...50-Dash-Repair. The dashboard is silent.

      This car is an extremely rare find in this color combination and condition. 850s are becoming extremely difficult to find with lower mileage and in good condition, and even more so for T5R/R models. The car is located in Wilmington, DE, 20 mins from the Philly international airport for non-local buyers. The price is $6,000.00. SOLD SOLD SOLD

      No disappointment. Yellow is yellow. Estate, however...
      This white wagon looks really, really nice. Too bad not manual like the T5R!

      Looks like somebody was carrying a bunch of chickens in the way-way-back? Or just a few???

      Vacuum cleaners are very, very difficult to operate

      I'm the current owner! Funny, I stumbled across this thread looking for details on the number of white 855Rs that were made. Engine is currently apart because the PO didn't mention that the heater core was leaking.....had to take the interior apart to clean up, bypassed the heater core, and promptly blew the head gasket after the car cranked a couple times (head got badly warped after the car over-heated from losing all its coolant into the carpet ). found a new head from a '98 v70r, some NA cams, and a 16t. New lifters, full stage 0 etc..should hopefully have it running again in the next week! All the way in California now. made the trip cross-country just fine

      Hey there!

      Sorry to hear that about the engine ... I had the exact same thing happen to one of my volvos. Glad to hear you're fixing her up.

      That def true...

      Although, mine had been sitting for all of 2019 so I'll actually be driving it more in 2020.

      I think you'll be on the same plan also .

      Car looks awesome btw. Im sure it puts a huge smile on your face now that you get to drive it.
