Like most wivesThe engine and body have same numbers. The wheel is original petri no cracks. The body is salvageable. The trunk is clean no rust...everything looks achievable for a restoration. All original lights and covers. My plan was to put 35-40k into it and have a 50k + car. But wife wants a bigger yard..and car not so much
My daughters 2 and wife wants another one which means bigger house and yard.I'm in the same boat, my wife says "finish your Volvo first" and we have 2 kids under 2...I just start getting worried when the shelves aren't full of parts for cars I'm going to get to in 3-5 years
I appreciate your reassurance. I was thinking about that. Who knows how high it could go...Looking at your best interest, I would put it on eBay with a reserve of 15k and starting bid of 5k and see where it takes you. I also believe that you may be surprised given some recent sales.
The guy who owned it before me tried to repair that shock tower. It started to rust and he put in storage in 1993-94 ish. Been there since. Miklos said oem repair full off frame for 15k plus parts costs. I agree it is the scariest part. Has to be done perfect to line up. I have the manual photos.The scariest photo is the passenger fender and strut mount, it will take lots of metal replacement to fix, including the parts you can't see. And that fender has been off before from the looks of all the welds along the seam.
Your offering keeps getting more interesting. You can’t get a clean estimate from the group if you keep trickling little bits of information in though. Used front fenders in good condition go for $700, and inners are as much or more. You have major structural issues with the right-front area, but you don’t mention the fact that you have an entire spare passenger side front clip until the end of page 2. The fact that you have already sourced these parts is huge. Please take no offense - but lay out what you have up front!I bought a clean csi front rt wing...to dissect and see what was happening in there. There are several parts..but about $1200 +- from W&N for the front right wing and skin.
