this is at least the third time this v70 has been up for sale.


Technically it wasnt up for sale. It just might have been.

Probably need to start making a move towards being able to jump when one appears though, cause this is at least the third time this v70 has been up for sale.

 

No, first time with this one.

I have sold 2 others though. I've got as far as owning a 5 pot with a turbo, but the T5 just eludes me.

There is a guy on here if I remember rightly selling on over in Jersey....I forget his name...

 

I think that was an 850 T5, if I remember correctly.

Pretty sure someone from this very forum has snaffled it.

The other 2 I sold were 2.5 20 valves, non turbo.

 

All three I've had have been bloody good cars. I'd recommend them to anybody.

Thanks for that, but although I have a facebook account, someone tried to knobble it, so I'm locked out now. I need all sorts of i.d. to get back, and I really can't be bothered.

Not perfect Ken, but never had an ftp.

 

Just imagine never having to check the oil between changes. The oil level never drops.

 

I fitted a new uprated dipstick and tube a while ago too. When the old ones wear out (only 1 o ring on the dipstick), it lets cold air in, which mixes with the heat from the engine, result - mayo on the 'stick. The new dipstick (2 o rings) and tube has completely eliminated this.

Right, this car is up for a swap now.

 

I need something cheaper to run, insure, tax blah blah.

 

I'll give it a bath and get some pics up.

Just a few pre-wash photos. Not had time to wash it. Had a boiler problem, hopefully sorted, then I've been on the phone to various places. Bit late to get the hose and related wash items out now.

It really does look nice with a wash and polish.

Supremely reliable.

Got a Pug 405 estate 2 litre petrol auto, full leather, 1995, mot expires 16/9/18, good runner, but the Missus doesn't like it much as it's got a few dings and french electrics, got it in a complicated swap with Eddy Ramrod and Bramz.

 

All I've done is oil and filter change, new cat back exhaust, new stereo with household speakers in the boot for added "class", it's a lovely, comfy car, but her Maj is insisting she is not a fan, although she is in it for work this week as her Magentis is playing silly bollocks with the aircon pulley grumbling away in an increasingly terminal fashion, she may feel better about a posh Volvo, although who can  tell with the fairer sex when it comes to estate cars ;)

Nice looking car, but I've never been into French, but thanks for the offer.
I'd like a direct sale now if possible, as I have found something else. If anyone wants to contact me directly, the number is oh seven five four six four three one nine five one.
Texts would be best as I'm at work now and will be until the morning.

I owe an apology here.

I was contacted by text last night. I was with my truck in Colchester waiting to unload. I don't know if it was a member or lurker, no name was forthcoming, but whoever it was saw the ad here, because this is the only place I've put my number up.

They wanted to come and view. It was only then I realised I'm not going to have much time for viewings. I'm back in tonight (Saturday), off Sunday (food shopping with Mrs Tet), then back in Monday through to, and including next Saturday. I'm going to need the car all week. After that, I have Sunday and Monday off.

Sorry people.

 

Also, sorry about those pics I put up on Friday, it really can look so much better, but I did them in amongst a thousand other things.

It could well be, especially if I get to buy Tetley's Volvo with the proceedings :)

 

Could you pm me, also got some interest by Skattrd for a similar swap, I should put up a proper advert instead of hijacking Tetley's thread ;)

Cheers Ken, but I've found another desirable motor.

 

It's just logistics, getting my one sold and the other one collected.

 

Bloody work.

 

That's my lot for today, got to start my usual daily routine. Lunch. An hours' feet up, then back to bloody work.

Yeah that was me, very much a lurker on this forum, though I see you also have it on volvoforumuk, where my knackered 740 is for sale as parts. One in one out! Am very interested in checking this car out, need something to do a bit of exploring this summer, I can come view at your earliest convenience.
