2007 Volvo V70 D5 2.4 automatic - SOLD - New Owner Updates

Recommended Posts

Our 2006 is going to be written off by the insurers and is being collected on Monday. It's a 2006 2.4d with 125k miles and full service history. We've still been using it for 2 months since the accident and the damage is just cosmetic. I can ask to buy it back from them if you like and it would give you tons of spares. It has black leather and is 7 seats. Other than the damage it's pretty much spot on.

Would you be interested? It still has loads of mot left. Of course it all depends on the price they ask.

Yes, quite possibly - as you say, depends on price! Drop me a PM and let me know, thanks for bearing me in mind¬†ūüôā

It was keyed down both sides the day after the accident. The air con doesn't and it says there's a problem with the alarm. 7 seats, I did the conversion myself and a removeable towbar.6be9e0a270194f7151dc179a76599026.jpg64372ad0d277026cc8fe740fc22eea2e.jpg322a6ddd98f8e746f77b6fe1c02e6480.jpgae0f3a10f9446d6df4df847fb5d654e4.jpg59cfc80e6758391fca0405224515cf49.jpg568eb4e73d798489ca4d0773ec900319.jpg

Sorry to hear it's been written off, what happened?

Still struggling to get my head round this, I had the sump off today and couldn't see anything wrong. The stopping points don't seem to correspond with TDC on a particular piston, I still haven't got a clue what's stopping it. Oil pump maybe? As a bonus, it all looks pretty clean in there.

Hey shiters, long time no update. Basically I couldn't figure out what was causing the engine to lock up (and neither could anyone else), so I threw my toys out of the pram and left it to sulk in the unit for a bit. Unfortunately this didn't fix it, so the decision has been made to take the good cylinder head from the new engine and stick it onto the old bottom end. Of course I could've done that in the first place without taking the engine out, but let's not think about that. Anyway, parts have been ordered and the old, fucked head removed. Bores look pretty good so we should be alright to get back on with this over the next few weeks,

      Train tickets booked from a train station 30 miles away to save √ā¬£9 on the recommendation of the Mrs
      Mrs booked and primed ready to drop me off at said train station.




      Mobile tool kit primed and ready, missing almost every vital component due to EU regulations about leccy tape and screwdrivers on trains (I left them all at my mums house yesterday).
      If I do break down, I should have something to listen to while I work out whether I'm with the AA or RAC or none of the above.

      Hi all, new to the forum.  Thought you might be interested in what I've got myself into
      I'd been after my first classic car for a while.  If it's big and made in the 70s I'm interested.  Looked at few things like P6s, Zodiacs, Victors, SD1s and various other things.  Problem was I didn't want to spend a boatload of money on something that looked alright but underneath was actually a total heap.  The solution was to buy a complete heap in the first place and spend the money fixing it.
      So in January I went ahead and bought this from a colleague at work who was moving away and needed to get shot of it.

      It's a part finished restoration (I prefer not started) and it needs a whole load of help if it's going to stand any chance of using a road again.
      Pros
      It's right up my street.  Granada Coupes are quite odd and certainly stand out from the norm.
      It still has the original engine, box, interior and most trim.
      It came with loads of panels I need to repair it (mostly original Ford stock).
      It came with so many spares I could probably build a few Granadas and still have stuff left over.
      It was cheap.
      Cons
      Most of the front end has been cut off.
      Most of the body structure is quite rotten.
      It's going to take me ages.
      I work at a restoration company and my boss kindly allows me to keep the car there.  So I've got access to all the gear I need to restore it.  I've been busy on the car for a while now so will post more pics over the coming days.
      Cheers

      I think the Broadsword fleet has become sufficiently complicated to merit a combined thread so that gradually all new additions will appear in one place.
       
      As of Sunday 17th March the situation is interesting.

      A Range Rover P38, which is turning out to be really rather good.
       
      And to mix things up even more I'm off on a collection caper today. Had first refusal on it and was expecting it to come around in a year, but things soon changed and no way was I going to pass up on it. It may well render the second Xantia redundant as I've got a really good feeling about this motor.
       
      In the meantime here are some snaps of the Range Rover. As usual it was a car I said I would probably never buy due to their reliability*. I have said the same of Jag XJR, XJS, XK8 and I have had all of those now. Basically the moment I declare buying a particular car is impractical or improbable, I end up buying one.
       
      Things to note on the P38. It's a nice colour with tidy body. The EAS has been removed. It runs and drives lovely and it doesn't have enough electrical problems to hinder progress. The main one is the driver's side window not working, but that should be fixable. I've tried changing the outstation, that didn't fix it. Might be wiring under the seat. Other than that I bought it and took it for an MOT the very next day, and it passed. Since then it had what seemed like a battery drain, but since unplugging the RF thingy for the remote locking and putting on a proper lead-acid battery, which the car can actually charge, unlike the modern lead-calcium batteries, it has been perfect. I will treat it to a full service soon.
       
      Stay tuned for the latest collection later today!
