Volvo C70

Looking for a nice youngtimer that probably still has a lot of life in it technically, but where a little cosmetic attention can’t hurt? Perhaps this Volvo C70 is something!

Somewhat old school Swedish solidity in an attractive jacket: not surprising that the Volvo C70 has become an attractive youngtimer. New it was also a very nice appearance, with a C70 you were completely the gentleman around the turn of the century. Nowadays they still cost a relative next to nothing and this T5 (!) certainly no longer has to deliver the main prize. That while it is not only a fast but also a tastefully executed C70, with its blue paint, beige interior and subtle but sporty light metal underneath. The mileage is also not bad; with 2.5 tons on the counter (NAP report included), this C70 has just been broken in, according to Volvo enthusiasts.

You can count on the fact that even such an ‘indestructible’ car as the C70 after 25 years and 2.5 tons will also mechanically show quite a few traces of life. Even if the technology is still fresh, the appearance certainly isn’t anymore. With the carriage it is not too bad, although we spot some clear coat misery on the hood, but especially in the interior the age can be seen. The upholstery of the front seats is no longer pretty and certainly the entry damage on the driver’s side is significant. That after 2.5 tons you get the chair so broken…

The well-known wear spot, but this chair has had a very hard time.

What does speak for this car, is that it stayed with its previous owner for no less than sixteen years. In addition to a special entry-level technique, he apparently also had a big heart for the C70, otherwise you will probably not stay loyal to it for very long. Or it was simply the car that was allowed to stay for so long due to a good track record. Anyway, for €2,300 you probably still have quite a bit of car, although you would actually have to reserve some money for one or two new front seats.
