solid ca car. has been in storage for 22years. recent repaint in original california white. original interior color was changed from light blue to black. this car was equipped with the factory volvo a/c. everything except the compressor was there when i got the car. most often it is replaced with a modern rotary pump. all of the under hood components (condenser,hoses, drier) have been left in place. the interior portion of the system has been removed, but will included. it mounts easily under the dash on the passenger side.
i will start by listing the things that have been done since i have had it;
gas tank was removed ,cleaned and sealed with por 15 gas tank sealer , new fuel pump and filter. some lines and hoses replaced. .then the entire system flushed. (spare injectors and other components will be included.
new water pump, cooling system flushed, new fan belt and new coolant
new oil in engine and trans, new gear oil in rear end
new plugs, points, cap, rotor, ect.
an aftermarket hi-flo air cleaner has been installed in the same location as the stock unit. (the original assy will be included)
tires have been replaced with 195-60-15 (originals were 185-70-15)
has original spare,jack and tool kit. even has the rare volvo spare gas can. it twists and locks inside of the spare tire. the stainless trim rings have been replaced with non-originals(the volvo rings are very thin and dent easily. i still have them and will include them as well).
both upper and lower dash caps have been installed
all gauges and instruments work, including the clock.
wipers, washers, fan, and horn all work
all lights (flashers, turn signals, high-beams) are working
overdrive switch (stalk that comes off of the column opposite the blinker arm) was broken off and replaced with a toggle switch mounted under the dash. it’s easy to see why the original one broke, it hangs out right in front of the ignition switch! overdrive and its indicator light function as they should.
new battery
most of the w/stripping has been replaced(doors, hatch, hood, waist seals ect.)
chrome and glass is original . it still looks good, not perfect! driver door glass has a small chip along the top edge. both outside mirrors, the mirror glass is a bit cloudy. rear 3 windows have been tinted.
brakes were gone thru, with various items either rebuilt or replaced. front rotors and pads are new. all lines have been flushed and bled. brakes are excellent(no pulling).
front and rear shocks appear to have been replaced at some point. steering is tight. handles well even at freeway speeds with no issues.
engine compression tested at or near 160psi on all cyls. starts every time without any smoke. all plugs burn very clean . engine runs great, does not overheat. even on hot days neither temperature gauge (oil or water) has reached midpoint.
transmission shifts smooth into all 4 gears and the overdrive engages properly when the switch is activated.
a modern blaupunkt cd player has been installed. the original cassette deck will be included.
i will include a chiltons repair manual as well.
i have tried to describe this vehicle as accurately as possible. i tried to spread the 24 pictures to show as much as i could.
if you are anywhere near san diego i encourage you to come and see the car in person and drive it. if that’s not possible, have a ppi done by someone local.
if you have any questions, would like some specific photos, or would like to see the car, leave your contact number and i will get back to you as soon as i can.
thanks and good luck bidding
