Volvo 850 T5R Manual for sale. I bought this car as a non runner as the original engine had blown a piston, but i really wanted a T5R manual car!. I had another T5R manual (M218 DNG log book attached below) which had been stripped out to become a track car, but never actually got past the stripping. As the engine in this car was past repair once an inspection had taken place, I removed the engine and gear box from my other T5R and replaced the engine and manual gear box in this car as my other T5R had done less miles (155,503 miles). I then got the belts, water pump etc all changed on the car and the car serviced, mot'ed and checked over, I also replaced the suspension with the suspension on the track car. The car comes with a really good service history and drives well. The car, in my opinion is let down by the paint. It has had paint in the past, and to be honest there are some areas where it is not fantastic, and will need some areas rectified. Some areas of the car are good, others not so and perhaps £500 pounds will do the areas that require attention. Obviously everyone has a different view on what good is, so I would suggest viewing the car to make up your own mind on that as I am not a paint expert! There is minimal rust on the car from what I can see, and nothing was brought up on the MOT in that regard. The interior is OK given the mileage, the drivers seat has wear on the bolster, and the passenger seat is showing signs of wear. Everything seems to work OK and it drives well (although I have only driven it around the block due to work commitments!) I have spent a lot of time and money getting this car back on the road, and I have bills for £2500 to replace the engine and gear box and do all the stuff required to get back on the road (That does not include the price of the engine/gear box just the removal and fitting), and get it through the mot with no advisories. You dont see many manuals for sale and this one runs well. Its not concurs by any means, and if you are looking for a perfect one, this is not for you. It does have great mechanicals and all the stuff you want doing has been done, but this is a drivable project and does need some work. I have replaced a lot of interior parts on this car as there were things that needed sorting or were missing. The good news is that all the T5R stuff is present (including the spare Titan wheel!), so any trim etc that is needed is just your standard Volvo 850 T5 stuff so easy to locate. Happy to send pictures etc to anyone who is interested. Sorry to see it go as its been a labour of love, but it needs someone who will now finish off the other bits that need doing. Please call on 07930346881 for any more information. £5999 ono serious offers considered. Silly low ball offers will be ignored, I am not desperate to sell so wont take silly offers, no px please. Bank transfer or cash on collection.
