BaT listing of Volvo TBG221A

Post by Jim Molloy » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:54 am

Hello to all.
At last year's NWMF event, BaT was present and we are certainly hoping they well choose to return. I was just made aware of a new listing and selfishly hope this gem will be picked up by someone in the Pacific Northwest. Last year was a very strong year for Volvos at NWMF and by all indications, this year will be more.
Here's the link to the listing.

Hope someone jumps on this one!
Take care.

Looks really cool, that seems like an excessive amount of oil leaking from the valve cover gaskets etc, is that normal? Anyone know how hard it would be to remove all the seats from the rear?

I think he said the reserve was i the 15-17k range. I think I have seen it listed elsewhere for 19 or 19.5...

He and i chatted via e-mail after the BAT auction. He will take less than $16.5k. I was going to offer $11 max, but thought twice about it. Its a funky config and i will never be able to resell it once bored. :D

One of the pleasures of driving folks around in the Pinz is your ability to spin your head and see their enjoyment. Not so in the TBG. I guess you could strip out the rear interior and create a stage for impromptu boy band concerts. My daughter would appreciate that. No one else would.

Yeah I thought most of the same things, even if the price was good, that config is really limiting, much more difficult to turn into a cool camping rig etc. At $11k it's not a bad deal though probably, I suspect you'd get that back once you got bored, probably not $16k though.
