As much as I love it the time has come.
One of only seven original XC70 manuals imported by Volvo into Australia. This is a 2003 model so it has the upgraded motor (154Kw), Electronic AWD (previous models were mechanical) and the upgraded throttle body so no issues there. Has had a recent Vic RWC (was previously a NSW car). Cam belt and tensioner done, front sway bar replaced. Interior was originally beige but dirty and ratty so has been replaced with decent black interior.
Car is Nordic Blue and has numerous scratches and small dents from the previous owner. Overall condition is good, driving condition is excellent if not fantastic. Drives like a dream, has heaps of torque and will pull well even in 3rd and 4th gear, cruises on the highway in 5th on cruise control without the need to change down constantly. Maximum torque is from 1500RPM so this is a torque monster.
This car is so good on the road I would compare it to any of the R models (in fact an IPD computer upgrade will easily get it into R territory). Has done 177K and is for sale at $8500.
Reason for sale, I bought my partner an S40T5 and get my V70T6 back (she wanted a smaller car and won't drive a manual). If you are looking at an XC70 or V70 even an R this is worth a look.
Photos to follow.
