    Waaay to many KLMS unless fastidiously maintained IMO (and / or all country highway KLMS). Immaculate later model V8 with 90K on the clock recently listed at a Syd dealer for 19900 and lasted just a week or two.
  • But this is only 7800
  • And you can double that $$$ if the transmission has never had a service and needs replacing now or very soon.... (Seems around 200K plus or minus is a rough life est for an auto transmission on original fluid, others may know better than me).

    So then your most of the way to a much better car. I get it, the bargain appeal.... But if it's a quarter of a million KLMs of mostly city driving and only what the Volvo book requires and no more then it could cost the new owner some $$$.

    Or perhaps with this as a spare motor and tranny it's not such a bad prospect:

    Except Mark will buy it over the top of you...

    The gearboxes are not that expensive to do apparently, ask Mark he does them.
    They can be fixed now anyway...
