The best cars are those in orig­i­nal spec that haven’t been fid­dled with – even bet­ter if they’ve been owned by an en­thu­si­ast who’s done reg­u­lar main­te­nance them­selves or taken it to a Volvo spe­cial­ist. Ad­di­tion­ally, it’s worth read­ing up on spec so you know what model you’re look­ing at – for in­stance the T-5R had fivespoke Ti­tan wheels, while the rims on the R were 17-inch seven-spoke Volans. Ad­di­tion­ally, the en­gine code (po­si­tion 6-7 in the VIN) was ‘57’ for the T and ‘58’ for the T-5R and R.
