Exceptionally Nice 1995 Volvo 960 Sedan with 66k miles
For January 7, 2022, our used car find is this exceptionally clean and original 1995 Volvo 960 sedan with just 66k miles. It’s offered on Craigslist by a private seller in the Phoenix area for $7500 or best offer.
Here’s what makes this one special.
The 900 series represents the last of the old school Volvos. Dating all the way back to the 100 series, which debuted in the mid 1960s, Volvo built cars that offered distinctively boxy styling, robust engines, rear-wheel drive, and comfy yet sensible interiors. It’s a great package, which continues to attract a devoted audience even to this day.
While the funky 240 gets most of the attention — such as this recent piece on Hagerty naming it an up-and-coming collector car — the ultimate iteration of the Volvo brick is the final one. The 900 series offered a host of improvements over every generation that preceded it, including more power, enhanced safety, greater agility, and better rust-proofing.
For the 1995 model year (in the US), Volvo rolled out one final update to this long-lived series. Though down slightly on horsepower compared to earlier versions, its revised inline-six offered more low-end grunt for improved responsiveness in everyday driving. Volvo also updated the suspension for more dynamic handling, streamlined the exterior styling for better aerodynamics, and improved the interior for more comfort and style.
If you’re curious what one of these would be like when new, look no further than this incredibly well-kept example, which boasts not just low miles but a two-owner, accident-free history as well. This 960 spent the vast majority of its life in the mild Pacific Northwest, which shows when you examine its pristine original paint and interior. The latter tends to wear quickly on Volvos of this vintage, so it’s remarkable to find one this clean.
