Here's one of the last of the rear wheel drive Volvos! A friend of mine has a broken S90 that was his daily driver until a couple weeks ago. It has not sat long and is not a neglected, worn to crap car. It's pretty nice really. If I needed a new cheap daily I would be tempted but I'm up to my neck in projects as per usual.

The car is in Columbus, OH and is not currently driveable due to the transmission failing. If you're interested, let me know asap! Need to move fast as it's an inoperable car parked (legally) on the street right now. We probably have a week before it's an issue but he would like to see it gone by then. Drop me a line if you're interested and I'll get you in touch with him. I'll let him give the details:

Volvo S90 (aka 960 sedan) 1997
~257,000 mi
dark blue ext, tan int
*bad transmission (likely pump failure leading to friction plate over wear)
rear brakes thin/worn
rear cam seal leak (slow, but drips on exhaust leading to stink)
AC fail (R134a leak?)
parking brake cable snapped
Some of the interior removed to clean up sunroof leak, included but loose.

$200 car w/rough wheels & tires (S80 wheels, abused)
$400 car with orig wheels & Blizzak tires (invoiced as $200 + $200)

Prices is based on junkyard offer, and market price of good wheels & tires

It's tempting but not tempting enough to add a 15th car at the house.

At 15, it's just rounding error to add another!

You were the first person I thought of when I read the listing!  ;-)

Someone’s gotta be interested! Good looking RWD platform for $200! It’d be a shame to see this hit the junkyard.

Buy it yourself and turn it into a LeMons car in your spare time...

Sell the headlights and climate control panel for what you have in the car. Free RWD platform to build into Lemons or Challenge greatness. Manual swap existing engine or cheap v8 swap? your choice!

Please save me from having it towed to my house to strip parts off. I have other things I need to spend time on.

If this was closer I would be so very tempted.
