Car is in remarkable condition. Absolutely no rust and ‘as new’ interior. Brilliant paintwork. Looks the part and a real head-turner. Drives beautifully; engine pulls strongly and the gearbox/transmission feel as new. All the renowned Volvo attributes of solidness and reliability. The underbody still has the original thick Volvo underseal and is as new. 2 excellent sets of wheels and new tyres. In Summer 2018 it was outright winner at the Volvo Enthusiasts’ Club National Rally for ‘Best 140/160' class. It was used very little between 1984 and 1996 and at the end of 1996 was laid up in a garage with the engine turned over regularly. 'Woken up' in Autumn 2016. £6000 spent - nearly all preventative - to ensure a totally reliable car with nothing to be done for very many miles to come: All fluids changed; brake calipers and pads replaced; new fuel pump; shock absorbers replaced (Koni); new battery; all hoses, brake and fuel lines replaced; 123 electronic ignition; new fan belt; petrol tank drained and cleaned out; carburettor serviced; alternator, HT leads, plugs and coil replaced. A set of rare GLT wheels sourced (original steel wheels retained; 2 sets new tyres. A sump/steering guard, trip meter, and Cibie lights have been fitted, for use in Regularity and Navigational rallies. Has performed faultlessly on 2 long distance navigational rallies in France. You can take this car anywhere, any distance, with absolute confidence. Biggest boot space you will ever see!
