hopefully i won’t regret doing this, but it’s time to let go of my 1987 volvo 240 dl station wagon. she runs great, rides awesome, and has always been reliable. having a 940 b230ft engine swap in conjunction with a 5.0 mustang t5 transmission and a g80 posi, i’ve had much fun with her throughout my ownership. the white wagon is a daily driver that is modified with both reliability and practicability in mind. her differential is re-geared to 3.73 ratio for maximum fuel economy. there are many goodies including a 15g turbo, 242gt intercooler, ipd turbo cam, lh2.2 from an ’87 740 with bosch ezk ecu, 3” turbo-back exhaust, a hurst fox body mustang short flow shifter, 6-puck ceramic spring disk clutch with lightened flywheel, ipd 25mm sway bars front and back, ipd lowering springs, bilstein struts, polyurethane trailing arm bushings, r-sport poly motor mounts, ipd upper and lower braces, and firewall braces. this sexy beast is rolling on a set of 16” hydra with fairly new tires. she also got nice sound that is powered by a sony deck with bluetooth capability, a pioneer amplifier, a rockford 10” sub-woofer, and upgraded speakers and tweeters.
see below for a comprehensive list of all upgrades, as well as extras that will be included with the sale. the white wagon holds a clean california title in my name and is free of accident history. body is clean and without noticeable blemishes. no body repair work has ever been performed anywhere on the vehicle. glossy original paint on all body panels are without oxidation. being a california car all her life, entire undercarriage is absolutely rust free. there are no fluid leaks of any kind and there is no oil-consumption issue. interior is clean and upholstery is in exceptional shape, although there is a rip on left side of the driver’s seat bolster and two minor cracks on middle of the dashboard. registration has been renewed recently and valid thru august 2015 (photo shows old tag but new one is on its way).
odometer currently shows 49,739 miles; although true mileage is unknown as the hundred-thousandths gear is stuck. all other digits on the odometer are turning accurately as it should however. speedometer is not operational since the g80 posi/locker is installed; i’m quite certain this is caused by incompatibility with the stock speed sensor. freon in a/c is drained as the previous owner performing the engine swap, so a re-charge should do if you want cold air. with that said, this turbocharged station wagon is overall presentable and mechanically solid! she has just made it through smog inspection without any issues. a smog certificate will be provided for the buyer.
writing this ad not only making it hard for me, but also reminds me of how much money i’ve spent to get it to where it’s at. i purchased the white wagon off of a local guy here in the sf bay area back in ’13, and planned to keep her for a long time. previous owner has put a lot of love and hard work into this car, and the quality of workmanship shows! water pump, timing belt, thermostat, tensioner, brake pads, and rotors are all replaced within the last 25k miles. i’ve been keeping up with maintenance and have put in some of the aforementioned upgrades. however, my current living situation involves a very uptight hoa; which has makes it difficult to keep all my cars as well as wrenching on them. so i think it’s best to send her off to a good home of a fellow enthusiast who can enjoy and appreciate for all of her awesomeness!
