Default Rare Volvo parts that you have!

I can't sleep and found my GTI's old steering wheel, which was rare, it was a 94 GTI non-airbag & leather steering wheel. And then I saw the Rare parts thread both on Bimmerforums and VWvortex, so it got me thinking, what rare Volvo parts you have? ones that I possibily would like to kill you for, like a 740 GT steering wheel Dan has, or a R-sport 16v dohc head? factory 16v grey import? original Grp A poster with signatures? post pix with them too, I know Towery has tons, so does tuff240.

I'll start:
1991 Volvo Accessories brocher in French!

brand new OEM Volvo SE foglight kit with switch that I'm thinking if I want to use it.

Euro parts:
Hova tails, eggcrate grille? is that even rare in this continent? custom made Hamann knock off wheels. Oh, I have e-codes that have level adjuster. And my car was made in Belgium!

things that are rare in my book incld: BBS RS that's on the wagon, original optional Polaris, and just whatever funky euro parts you got, prefer OEM, but post 'em if you got 'em.

link to my brocher attachment.

My only rare part that I have:
740 SE Front and Rear bumpers (minus mounting hardware and every other bit asides from the actual bumpers themselves )

Not particularly rare, but hard to get a hold of parts:
V90 Door Handles
V90 Rear Wiper Cover
V90 Moonroof
700/900 Cupholders?

I dont know how rare it is, but I always thought it was wierd that my 85 245 wagon had electronic fuel injection instead of the mechanical
that's all i can think of right now

240 cupholder armrest bracket
240 accessory switch (purple)
240 52mm oil temp gauge+sender (fahrenheit)
240 52mm tach

Hi,
VQ marked his 264 as "RIP". So this car seems to be history...
In my eyes the challenge keeping a PRV is not to find the parts but to find the TIME to proceed regular maintenance (e.g.: exchange water-pump, head gaskets,... - takes hours ).
Even if PRV-engines are "rare Volvo parts" in the meantime as well - let's get back to the topic of the thread:
Have you seen the gauge for cylinder head - temperature in the VDO-Catalogue??? OUTSTANDING!!! Never seen before!!
Excellent find!

Regards
Clemens
