Why are you selling up? Worth £5k in bits no doubt about that but unsure if you'll find a buyer for it as it is. I had to strip most of the tastiest upgrades off my 3 litre as I just got no interest in it as a whole car at a high price.
Exactly, its a gta that doesn't shout about it, until you boot it at least.
@pud, I'm looking at a mates v70 t5r awd. If it doesn't sell for that kind of money then so be it. It's just had the best part of 1k just in parts spent on it in the form of a clutch, upper arms, arb bushes, pads and discs, driveshafts and tyres so if it doesn't sell then I know it's not going to cost me anything in the future (touch wood) whereas the Volvo is a turbo charged unknown quantity...
V70 T5R AWD is a bit of a change - what's made you look at that? I really like the old 850 turbo - the lairy ones you can get near on 300bhp out of
I have no idea how reliable (or not) those Volvos are.. Do you have any pics of it, or similar ones so I know why V70 it is you're looking at?
I'm really looking forward to building up my new black one, I've gone down a different route to you though with 330s, hub carriers & driveshafts, I'm sticking with the 2.5 uprights, wheel bearings & driveshafts, just using custom brackets to bolt the 330 calipers on. The 2.5 driveshafts won't cope as well with the power, but at least it won't be hard for me to source replacements

I'd remove the last 4 pictures as, IMO, they won't inspire confidence to a buyer.
Instead take some nice shots of the interior, engine & maybe remove a front wheel to show the brakes, or a close up of the front wheel with the caliper behind?
Edit: I've just seen your 'link'. Although v.interesting & informative to me, it could scare off some buyers. I'd keep it until you have spoken to a prospective buyer & maybe then send them the link if necessary?
