Looking for some wisdom on a potential project car. I don't want to post the CL link because I'm worried some pirate will swoop in and grab it before I can get out there from Michigan.
2001 T5 FWD manual V70 wagon with 170K miles. Seller will accept $900. Clutch is original but good, needs some body work. Interior looks amazing. Seller says it will need at least front struts and the liftgate hinges repaired. It has had the timing belt done, newer battery, and a set of winter tires included. Engine light is on, possibly gas cap / emissions related. Seller also states turbo is "leaky," whatever that could mean.
Seems awesome for a project, especially with the manual trans. Decent investment, or is it too much work to restore?
EDIT: this old girl was purchased and given a new home. I will keep track of my progress here.
