Help me settle this pointless discussion.

Hardest to find recent (I dunno, 20 years or so) Factory accessory.

Friend says it's probably something like one of those REALLY high mileage plaques. A good guess.

I'm gonna say it's something like, an 855R 3rd row seat in correct suede/leather.

Why make a monthly payment on a reliable new car when you can make a monthly repair on a 20 year old Volvo instead???

Since not even Volvo reports these production numbers you're going to be dealing with a subjective answer that will deliver unsatisfying results for you and your friend. Try the GT leather interior for the C70 (1998-2000) or more recently the linen white leather with light wood on the C70 (2004) or the Volcano red leather.

No, if you're talking state-side only, then I'll tell you what it is, the LPG powered parking heater.

I still don't believe there was ever a factory white V70R.....where did we ever see proof of that? I remember some ramblings of a Volvo executive owned white V70R but I'm not sure if that was legit......
