    Gul 854 manual

    Just picked up a 854 Gul manual for the school run / daily, usual needing a mop and new wing but other than a few small issues which Iíve mostly got parts to sort itís actually not too bad, low owners (last 10 years) and reasonable mileage, they do still pop up.

    Just be keeping it, had the sonic 4 years now and getting to the point of having the Volvo’s I want to keep. The flash green V70r will take over daily duties most likely when I get the time to sort it and the sonic will be manual converted next month.

    Won’t be being broken up, it would be worth more as a car, had two offers on it as it is, plus saved twice as many as broken for spares.
