Looks like a valve designed for a V6-8. It will never work in your Volvo.

you can finally have an answer to the age old question "if a valve is thrown out a window does it land on its foot?"

I used to work at an engine valve plant. That valve appears to be beyond its usable life. Scrapped valves make really good door stops.

If it's a hollow stem, could be a good source of NaK as apachechef suggested!

I give stuff like that to local artists for sculptures. They also like old camshafts and tone rings. Someday there will be a local sculpture featuring a ton of old "M" cams.
