Hello all,

My name is Marshall and I drive an 07 Toyota Corolla. I want to get a Volvo Turbo Wagon years 1995-2001 and play.

Does anyone know if those model years have a option of a manual tranny?

Thanks in advance.

Danger Ranger - I certainly can't claim to be an expert, but it does appear that some 5 speed manuals were made. I've attached some reading information for you. At the bottom you'll find some specs on the Volvo 850 5 speed trans.
Overview
The 850 Turbo Wagon is one of the fastest production station wagons in the world, capable of 250+ km/h (160+ mph) when ungoverned. Production models of the wagon and sedan are electronically governed to approximately 142 mph (229 km/h).[1] In 1996 a "Platinum" edition of the 850 Turbo was available. The exterior paint for these models came in a metallic pearl platinum-color and had special 16 inch alloy wheels. The interior was fitted with leather seats and burled walnut accents. Only 1500 of these were imported for the U.S. market.[2]
For the last model year (1996/1997) 850 was available also with 5-cylinder Volkswagen/Audi turbodiesel engine (D5252T) with 140 bhp. As well AWD (All Wheel Drive) model was introduced with a new 193 bhp low pressure turbo 2.4 litre engine (B5254T).
Motorsport
R models
Volvo 850 R WagonIn 1995 a special limited edition race-bred model was released. This "850 T-5R" model was limited in exterior paint color choices: only available in cream yellow (2500 worldwide including sedan and station wagon), in black (2500 worldwide including sedan and station wagon) and emerald green metallic (500 worldwide including sedan and station wagon). Only 2,000 were made for the U.S. market and in only two colours, black and creme yellow. There were 1,825 of them in black and 185 of the cream yellow models. The vehicle was based upon the 850 Turbo with the B5234T5 engine with a special ECU known as the Bosch #628 ECU, that added 3 psi (21 kPa) to turbocharger boost pressure, giving the engine an additional 18 horsepower (13 kW).
1995 was the only year that the race-bred model was badged as a "T-5R". All subsequent models are badged with just the simple addition of "R". Example: 1995 850 T-5R, 1996 850R, 1997 850R, 2004 S60R, etc.
For the Italian market, the T5-R was based on the 2.0 litre 850 Turbo. The transmission was the standard AW/50-42 used in all U.S. 850's, the M56H being available in other countries.
Also, included in the 1995 "T-5R" package is a front bumper with a lip, and a special Alcantara (the fire-retardant version of Toray Industries' Ultrasuede (tm)) and leather two-tone interior, in dark grey with deep birch wood grain accents. Additionally, the 1995 "T-5R" models came with polished aluminum door sills and for the 1995 model year only, the "T-5R" had an additional badge to the left of the "850" on the trunk, referred to as "The Motorsport badge". Aftermarket Motorsport badges are available and are often added by owners but only the 1995 T-5R came standard with that badge. The standard wheels were the 5-spoke 17×7 "Titan". The 1995 "T-5R" had a very limited production run. For the U.S. market there were only 2,000 produced and they only came in two colours, black and creme yellow. The creme yellow were the rarer of the two with only 185 produced out of the 2,000 shipped to the U.S. With the age of the "T-5R" and the fact that they appeal to more agressive drivers the number still on the road has shrunk.
In 1996 and continued through 1997 (the final year of the 850) a separate R model was released called the "850 R", this model was not as limited in production as the "T-5R" was. Monza red, black, anthracite grey, emerald green metallic, turquoise and white were the only color choices. Also, a new rear spoiler on sedans was introduced, and the interior was still two-tone but, the layout changed — in 1995 the leather was in the center of the seats — now it was on the outside bolster portion. The standard wheels used in these model years were the 17×7 "Volans". For 1996 and 1997, Volvo also introduced a new manual transmission for these cars called the M59 that came standard with a Torsen differential. The M59 was available in most markets, except the US. Furthermore, the M59 cars were equipped with a larger turbocharger and upgraded software enabling these cars to produce 250hp versus 240hp for the automatic transmission equipped cars. Torque was also significantly increased in the manual models from 300Nm to 350Nm.
Trims (U.S.)
All manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRPs) are base prices only.
1993:
850 GLT ($24,800 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
All 1993 850 models were badged GLT, regardless of equipment. Many options (leather, sunroof, and more) were bundled into the Touring package.
1994:
850 ($24,300 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
850 Turbo ($29,985 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 222 hp (166 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
The base 850 sedan includes the same headlights, front valance and front and rear bumper as the 1993 850, while all other models, including the new wagon, get revised headlights, front valances, and front and rear bumpers. The GLT badge is dropped, although all the same equipment is available. The 222 hp Turbo sedan and wagon, as well as the normally aspirated 168 hp wagon, are new models this year.
1995:
850 ($24,580 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
850 GLT ($27,110 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
850 Turbo ($31,045 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 222 hp (166 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
850 T-5R ($35,545 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 240 hp (179 kW) @ 5600 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
The GLT badge returned for the 1995 model year, so there were now sedan and wagon versions of the 850, 850 GLT, 850 Turbo, and 850 T-5R. The T-5R was the new high performance model, with more power stemming from ECU tuning, and special suspension, trim and wheels. In addition to the introduction of the T-5R, changes included new tail-lights for sedans, optional side airbags, new interior switch-gear design and several other detail changes.
1996:
850 ($26,125 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4700 rpm
850 GLT ($29,200 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
850 Turbo ($32,650 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 222 hp (166 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
850 R ($37,925 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 240 hp (179 kW) @ 5600 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
Changes this year include a revised power door lock system, new exterior colors, and full OBD-II compliance. The T5-R high performance version became the R in 1996, but the performance differences remained relatively the same.
1997 Volvo 850 in Sweden1997:
850 ($26,710 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 168 hp (125 kW) @ 6300 rpm and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m) @ 4500 rpm
850 GLT ($31,835 MSRP): 2.4 L I5, 190 hp (142 kW) @ 5100 rpm and 199 ft·lbf (270 N·m) at 1600 rpm
850 T-5 ($34,500 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 222 hp (166 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
850 R ($38,685 MSRP): 2.3 L I5, 240 hp (179 kW) @ 5600 rpm and 221 ft·lbf (300 N·m) @ 2100 rpm
For 1997, the 850's final year, all GLT models were increased to 190 hp (142 kW) by pairing a low-pressure turbocharger with the 2.4 L engine. The 850 Turbo model was thence called the 850 T-5, as it always had been in the UK. The 1997 model year was short, as the substantially similar (virtually identical except for superficial styling changes) Volvo S70 sedan and Volvo V70 wagon were introduced during the first half of 1997.

wow...that is quite a bit of reading. Thanks for all that. I will read it again and again to get as much as I can from it. Also, as I have been doing a lot of research I noticed the 850 wagon didnt come to the states with the manual option. so I either have to go with a lesser model or forgo the manual. I think the awd turbo 850 would be the better way to go, but need to continue researching.

Again, thanks for the help. I will keep you all updated as I continue my quest.

Let us know what you end up doing. You may be able to find an imported version if you keep looking on ebay or just continue to search the web. It sounds like you are set on a manual transmission?!

I know that around here the wagons are going for around 3-5k depending on year. which is the perfect price range for me. I also here there is a good ecu upgrade/chip that makes the auto shift better than a manual setup. So the auto might just work.

FYI: the volvo is intended to be a toy/weekend warrior, while still keep the corolla as a dd and hated car

When do you think you'll buy?
before summer. just might have to tie up some loose strings between march and june.

I want the volvo, but Im stuck in the corolla. Long story short, my credit is crap, the corolla is a gift from my parents to help with a reliable car. Now Im stuck with a 15k note on a car I despise. Dont get me wrong, I appreciate the help from my parents, but I am misreble driving this car.

Alright, so as long as I can pay for the corolla and put aside for the volvo Im good. So, I figure anywhere between march and june. I guess we will see how it unfolds.

So, I might be getting my Volvo before the new year comes now.

not the wagon of the late 90s Im wanting, but a 61 P1600 or 1800, not sure what it really is, other than a true ol skool project. As I get more info I will lay it out here.

Thanks all, and any info would def help on this model year.

A P1800 is a cool car! Look under Volvo Classics for more information and links about the P1800. Let me know what happens.

ok..found all the info that is available on the actual car as of now.

it is a 1961 pv544 that isnt running, but can be quickly, and costing 200$.

It is a project, and a lil rusty, but thats fine. It comes with a non-running 1968 B18 and a M-40 4speed.

Its on craigslist and I am going to try to go look at it this week and get it home this weekend if all goes well.

More as this unfolds! Damn Im excited.

He's not answering? Let me know if it works out!
unforetunately not yet. I will give him a few days. All I know is that I have the cash for this and a friend and I are having visions of a very interesting rat rod build on this peticular 61. It almost follows the lines of a 41 willy's gasser. I like that, Im big into rats and ol skool rods.
