[GUMTREE] 1997 V70 Manual White $1.2k - bit ratty but right for price

in RADAR 5865 / 174joined Jul 2013
Looks pretty good for a usable car, add on 1k to make it right from whatever has been neglected.

    Abs unit can be repaired, look in the info section on here. Or send to Midwest ABS in the states, they send you good one, you send yours. Will use them again.
    Get your parts supplied from FCP, have your man put them in.

    This car is sold - if someone (moderator??) can mark it so please

    FYI I've put a pile of meguiars into the leather already also the left headlight lens is broken - anyone got one they want to donate ?

    It does need a little restoration so I might write that up in another thread - which section?

    Sorbalene cream is recommended to clean and nourish real leather by my leather expert mate. I have used it to great effect but what cars since early 1980s have is leatherette, vinyl backing with a veneer of leather so once the thing does out it needs filling with liquid repair stuff, buffing and dye.
    Or buy new skins...
    I got V70R with big hole in seat back bolster from cracking, very annoying.

    Philia_Bear will have parts.
