Volvo C70 20v LPT 2. 0 Auto Convertible Silver 2001 (Y reg)

Future classic. spares or repairs. or for restoration. Ideally suited to an enthusiast as a rolling project.

Here we have an automatic Volvo C70 that would benefit from some TLC. This particular car is fitted with a 2 litre 5 cylinder. 20 valve Low Pressure Turbo engine.

I have listed this vehicle as spares or repairs / for restoration as it is not in perfect forecourt condition. and requires some work to make it nice.

Personally I think these Volvos are fine looking cars. and this one is finished in a classic combination of Moon Dust Metallic silver. with a light beige leather interior. The black hood compliments the car nicely.

This car came to me in part exchange; I really would like to tidy it up and keep it. However. I have far more projects than time. so this one needs to find a new home where it actually gets some attention.

Here is what I can tell you about the car:

The Good:

MOT until 23 August 2017Genuine low mileage. Only 61062 miles from new. Previous MOTs backup this mileageThe engine runs very wellElectric hood and windows workRear parking sensors fittedGenerally unmolested and original. The car has what I believe to be its original wheels. and the original CD / tape sound system. Only 4 keepers from new (you'll be the 5th)

The Bad:

There are scratches and dents around the car. I have photographed these as best as I can. There is only one key.

The Ugly:

There is no service history. so there is no way of telling what might have been done to this car throughout its life. The ETS light comes on sometimes. When it is illuminated. there is no change to the way the engine runs. It still pulls well. with no lack of power. It probably needs the throttle body reconditioning. but I don't have the time to investigate this fully.

Before its MOT I was offered good money by a local Volvo breaker for this. but it is too nice for that. So why not treat yourself to some wind-in-the-hair motoring. at an affordable price. before the good weather goes?

Hopefully you are left in no doubt as to what you are looking at. This car is a good solid basis for a restoration. It starts runs and drives. so you can drive it around now and decide fully how to tackle the restoration. Over the winter. you can tidy the bodywork. and do whatever mechanical work you think is needed. then you will have a nice convertible for use from the Spring.

This car is being re-advertised due to a time waster. If you don't understand from the above that this car is not in mint showroom condition. and it does require some work. the please don't make contact.

If you are genuinely interested. and you know what you are looking at. but you have further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
