Cream/Gull Yellow
Superb Service History
Excellent Condition
152,900 miles
Only 3 Owners

It's a factory Gull yellow manual estate, with a detailed history with virtual
every receipt & MOT back to when it was new.
First supplied by Roy Paul Volvo in Bangor on 18th January 1995, the original
order form is present as is the delivery receipt & warranty paperwork etc. 
It was a company director (car repair garage network) that owned it for 15 years
and 146,000 miles. It was maintained by Volvo for the first 5yrs then a combination 
of his own business & an independent Volvo specialist later in his ownership. 

It was a Northern Ireland registered car originally, I've been told it was the only
Cream (Gull) Yellow car to be registered in NI but not confirmed.

Only 3 owners. First from '95 - '14 , 2nd for a few months in 2014 through to September
2014 an the most recent to now. Its a relatively well known car, its been featured
in the club magazine a few times, including the Cover Story in December 2018 & most 
recently in last years club photo competition (2nd place). 

It's had a few subtle modifications - reverse intercooler kit (just as Volvo originally 
designed but changed due to extreme low temperature running issues), BSR air filter & 
heat shield, a dump valve & extremely rare twin headlamps - the type that retains the
Volvo indicators. I also have all the original parts if someone wanted to return it
to factory standard. Original & sought after 850 carpet mats in excellent condition
Original & sought after T-5R service book & owners manual

The car underwent a significant refresh 2014 & late 2015. Since then it's only done 
approx 700mls always on sunny days.  Literally have tens of thousand pounds worth of 

Very rare twin headlamp conversion, the type that retains the original Volvo indicators 
(I have the originals also)
Leather upholstery in great condition
Retractable 7 seater (2 boot fold up seats)
Space-saver spare
Volvo detachable tow-bar, all wired & working
Luggage blind present & working
Every suspension bush & ball joint replaced
Suspension wishbones replaced

Full timing belt kit fitted
Custom built exhaust (original system no longer available)
1 new Volvo front wing. The other was in perfect condition - probably renewed before my ownership.
New Front Bilstein B4 struts
New Heating matrix
2 keys 2 Fobs (1 working key fob)
New Volvo ignition switch fitted this year

Original Volvo stereo / head unit, fully functioning with code.
Seat heaters all work
Electric seats all work

Electric sunroof works in all directions

Headlamp washer/wipers work
The Titan wheels were all powder coated, they remain in 'as new' condition.
4nr Hankook Ventus tyres in good condition (approx 5mm all around)
The whole underside & arches were Dinatrol treated during the refresh.

Multiple other maintenance & repair jobs too - details contained in history paperwork.
It's been resprayed before my ownership.
When I purchased it, presumably following the respray, various trims & retaining clips were 
missing, Volvo clips were sourced to ensure best fitment & originality.

So what needs done. Very little to be honest.  AC doesn't work. Possible re-gas or 
compressor clutch (known issue). The wheel alignment done after all the suspension 
replacement but the steering wheel needs centered. None of these items stop the car 
driving like a dream which it does. 

An opportunity to own, what is becoming an extremely rare & sought after car which is appreciating 
significantly in value. It's absolutely stunning and there are few like it in this condition & 
possibly none with this history. No it's not in concourse condition, so there are a couple of 
very minor blemishes, marks, black bumper fade. There is a couple of marks on the rear bumper 
plastic (black section) but I'm doing it an injustice even mentioning these items given it’s
a 27 year old car.
