Endangered Species: 1999 Volvo S70 T-5

This next car comes from tipper Dave in Tampa who writes: This is a boat I’d happily row. Apparently it’s also a very rare configuration. Hmmm. If I didn’t already have an Abarth and a bunch of other cars littering my drive. Do it. What is the worst that could happen? How many more years will you be able to drive a manual gearbox equipped sedan on the road? Find this 1999 Volvo S70 T-5 offered for $6,500 in St Petersburg, FL via freakbonk makingbeans.

Seller’s Description
I have a very clean Volvo S70 T5M for sale. It has been well maintained and garage kept through the majority of its 24 years of life. My dad was the previous owner before purchasing it from him. This Volvo has had too many upgrades to count. Progressive sport spring suspension with IPD struts, ARD Green tune engine reflash with cold air intake and DP-back exhaust, MB Quartz sound system with kicker subwoofers in the back deck and all doors, floor, and trunk lined with dynamat sound deadening material.

Recent maintenance:
Brakes replaced within the last 5k miles
New tires within the last 5k miles
New all aluminum radiator within the last 5k miles.
New battery replaced 2 weeks ago.

All other minor maintenance or required maintenance such as oil changes, belt changes, tire rotations, etc. performed at the recommended intervals.

There are minor items that could use attention but it is still my daily driver with cold AC and reliable drivetrain. Mileage will increase as it’s my DD.
