Man, I've seen one royal in aus, and it's got 400,000km's on the clock and has the more basic rear seat..

I'd love one though, with a 760 rear :p

Keep it stock and maintain it meticulously. In 20 years that thing will be a classic young Volvo enthusiasts will be drooling over.

I didn't even know they offered that. I cant imagine there are many/any in the US.

The only problem I could see you having with owning that, is that you cant drive it.

I would love to have a 960 executive!

Problem with the kids in the back seat is they'd be playing with all the dials and A/C controls. But their sippy-cups will fit nicely in the rear cupholders!

That's a nice car. I would trade my s70 for a s90 if I could find one here.

Names seem to differ, but the cars you post aren't longer then a normal S90. Pretty easy to see when you take a look at the little window in the c pilar.

Volvo did produce 760 Executives but back then they were all just straight stretch with 3 seats in the back. They didn't start offering 2 seats in the back of the Executives until the facelift 960s.

I've already told my fiancee that our future kids aren't getting in that car till they are in their teens

The first 2 car that norcal505 posted were normal S90s but the 3rd one is a Royal / Executive.

760 and early 960 Executive all had solid C pillars with no windows, it wasn't until '96 that they started putting a small dummy window on the C pillar. However they've kept the interior trim panel covering the C pillar window opening so the small dummy window is purely decorative.

The switch is for the rear power sun blind. There's another rear power sun blind switch as well on the dash, so both the driver and rear passengers can raise / lower the rear sun blind.

On models equipped with rear heated seats, the seat heater switches are on either sides of the rear power sun blind switch.

Yesterday while cleaning the seats I found out that the rear seats have heating elements in them already! The wiring is all there as well, so I just need to get the seat heater switches to make them work, and replace that rear centre console wood panel with one that has cutout for rear seat heater switches... it's not something I could grab from the junk yard and I doubt they'd be cheap

My '90 760 GLE in Taiwan was the same, it didn't come with heated front seats but in actual fact the seats themselves have heating elements in it already, so I just had to add the wiring, relays & switches. And the rear view mirrors were heated glass as well even though it only came with the dash switch for rear demister only.

Thanks for the compliment, but honestly I only know stuff about the 700 / 900 series Volvo, I know very little about the other models. And if you spend countless hours looking through VADIS like I do you'd know all that stuff as well. VADIS isn't just for parts, there's alot of other goodies on it like design & function, diagnostic information, specifications, repair & installation instructions etc.

FINALLY got the rear seat heater installed!! Got the switches from UK, relay from Germany and the rear wood panel from Latvia!! The switches & relay are actually the same as for 850 which has rear seat heater as a rare factory fitted option.



My old rear console's wood veneer is starting to peel off with bits of it cracked & chipped so it needs to be replaced anyway.



Underneath the rear console, seat heater switches are pre-wired so its just plug & play! The 3 connectors hanging out to the right are for the switches. White - rear blind, Yellow - right seat heater, Grey - left seat heater.


And the end result...
