1997 Volvo 850 T5 - $4500


1997 Volvo 850 T5 with 146,465 actual miles. The odometer gear quit shortly after I purchased the vehicle with 116k on it, and was replaced the same week. I'm the 2nd owner of this car. The title is clean and in hand.

The car features:
Front Fogs and rear fogs
Rear factory spoiler
Dual power front seats
Power windows
Power sunroof
Power antenna
Trip computer
Traction control
Two keys and one Volvo keyless entry remote

Sony CD player

I would consider this 850 to be in very very good condition even without taking its age into consideration. There are no dents and no rust. There's one small scratch that is pictured. The other cosmetic blemish is a door trim piece that has a damaged corner. There are the usual scuffs you'd expect from a used car, but nothing really worth noting. The headlight wipers work and have new blades on them. The front fog lights also work.

In the interior, the drivers side seat bolster is splitting like it does on pretty much all tan leather Volvo seats. Most of the interior door pulls have chips in the plastic corners. I don't believe the drivers side seat heater works anymore. I'm not sure about the passenger side one. The rest of the interior is in good condition.

All of the interior lighting works except for the cigarette lighter and rear console light. They need new bulbs. The power sunroof, windows and antenna all work. All of the idiot lights work. Both power seats work well.

This car is modified a bit!
Turbo - rebuilt Volvo 18T from a v70r I believe.
Blue top Volvo injectors
ME4.4 conversion and tune from RUI - 18 psi max,AC intact and rear o2 delete. Boost levels are kept low at low RPM for the benefit of the connecting rods.
OBX 3" DP to 2.5" exhaust with upgraded clamps
OBX strut tower brace
IPD intake and heat shield
IPD transmission cooler
IPD / MSD coil kit
IPD heavy duty TCV
IPD silicone TCV hose kit
IPD heavy duty spring seats
IPD heavy duty CBV kit
IPD / VDO boost gauge kit
IPD 3 pod gauge kit
IPD silicone coolant hoses for the turbo coolant lines
Innovate Wide Band o2 gauge and sensor
Poly upper and lower engine torque mounts from FCP

In 2014 the timing belt, water pump and idler pulley were replaced. In the last 12 months the car got a new Bosch fuel pump, Bosch cam position sensor and Bosch front o2 sensor. Most of the coolant hoses were also replaced due to feeling soft. Some were probably original. The oil cooler hoses were replaced with OEM parts.

This year the Volvo dealer has replaced one axle(bad cv joint), did an alignment and replaced the CLT sensor. This 850 is far from neglected maintenance wise.

The ATF has been flushed twice during my ownership with synthetic fluid. The transmission shifts well and has no issues. A manual swap would be a fun next step for the car though I simply don't have the time or space for it. I've also done regular oil changes with Mobil synthetic oil and Mobil 1 oil filters. Currently it has Castrol synthetic and a Mann filter.

Modifications have been done in stages and with reliability in mind. This car is my daily driver and it is reliable. The OBX exhaust system could possibly be too loud for some. It's a fun car for driving on open roads. I'm sad to see it go, but I currently have more cars than my driveway can hold.

This car is adult driven. It has never been brake torqued or launched hard.

I'm asking $4,500 OBO. That will include an OBX angled DP and Volvo angled exhaust housing, the OEM ECU and injectors and every spare 850 part I can find. The car is located near Moline, IL.
