The lad who bought my old V70 2.5 20  valve has been in touch. He's selling it. I think he put it in for its mot and it failed. It still has mot until Wednesday. It's not a full on Silver, but that sort of smoky silver. Nice colour actually.

It's almost 2 years since I sold it, but I remember it being a lovely motor. I did a fair bit to it, and the current owner has improved it further.

However, he has now bought himself a later Volvo and must move this on.


The price of this magnificent beast is 140 quid, yes, you read that right, 140 English pounds.

Here's some pictures of it from when it was in my ownership.




















I very much doubt if it looks any worse, as the lad really looked after it.

PM me if interested, and I'll pass his phone number on.

You won't go far wrong with this V70.

4 tyre related failures, and a fistful of other failures. Doesn't seem very well looked after  :?

At the asking price there can't be much financial risk.



I must not buy any more cars.

I can't comment on the tyre issues.


I'd sling a bottle of Silver Hook power steering leak stopper in the reservoir, sort the tyres out, weld up the exhaust, if weldable.

Can't comment on the subframe bush either, never done one. I did replace the nearside trailing arm bush when I had it.


I just remember it being a really nice old V70. I was quite reluctant to sell it, but the turbo bug took hold.

Should think TS is feeling slightly smug at not selling this bargainous shite? These things last and last without big bills and are a pretty good drive to boot.

 Four part worns, a bush, a secondhand rack, on the road for under 500 quid all in.


Gift horse/mouth etc. Compared to some of the rubbish folk here are arsing about with this seems a better deal.
