I seem to recall the number 127 for the 98 V-T5M. Someone here totaled one and got this number from VCNA to demonstrate that it was a rare vehicle and therefore worth more than book on a regular V70.
They came from VCNA, the official numbers for the wagons were posted some time ago, but I've had a hard time locating them.
Caliwagon got the information from VCNA and posted it after his V70 T5M was totaled in 2007 or 2008. He ended up getting @ $2,500 more from insurance due to rarity using the information.
Haven't been on this forum for awhile, but this is all correct. My 1998 V70 T5M was totaled a couple years ago (100% other driver's fault). I contacted VCNA to get numbers I could use to convince the insurance company of the rarity, because I felt their initial offer was too low. They gave me the 127 number, but emphasized that it was not "official" i.e. they would give it to me on the phone but not in writing. Take it for what it's worth, but I believe that to be an accurate figure. The insurance company ended up giving giving me $9k for the car (even with over 160,000 miles on it) and then sold it back to me for $500. I parted out the rest for another $4k+ and came out way ahead, but was sad to see another V70 T5M off the road. At least the M56H from that car lives on somewhere in Texas. These T5M's are truly great Volvos, especially the '98s, so take good care of them!
