you going to repair it for daily driver go getter? modify and upgrade up the "yin-yang" or replace all you can and make it a luxury swedish "850"?:oogle:

yeah that my mission 1996 850 daily driver i think that the guy who sell it to me did something wrong <he's not a volvo guy> when he put the cyl-head back or the timing cause the car was running before the over-heat i just curious i put a battery and start lazy anyway i gonna fix it is good shape not perfect but nice in and out for 400 bucks well i think only the 4 columbas cost that :nod: and my 1989 744t-se look only for weekends :oogle:

Fix the back bumper, paint, and trim moldings and it'll look excellent! Looks like a very nice 850.
