Estate model in GLE spec finished in dark blue metallic with beige leather interior. The GLE was fitted with the 131 BHP 2.3 B230F 'red block' engine mated to M46 manual gearbox (4 speed + push button overdrive). This car quite simply has to be one of, if not the finest Volvo 740's in the UK - a one careful owner car from new until 2015 (when we purchased this car directly off the original owner who was retiring from driving) which was sold to a very particular car enthusiast, and has now returned into stock with a handful more miles on the clock, now showing just shy of 52,000 careful miles. This 740 has been pampered and garage stored all its life; it has simply never been subjected to ANY of the use or abuse that these cars were so famous for handling. Photographs do not do this car justice - I could go into further detail, but it would suffice to say this 740 is truly worthy of the phrase "time warp" condition throughout and is like looking at, sitting in and driving a example that is a few years old. It is ideally suited as a classic and a sound investment with values rising for the very best examples (due to the sheer longevity, usability and build quality of the 700 series). As expected it runs, drives and brakes absolutely fault free and has had recent work including timing belt replacement in 2015 along with a recent service, brake pads, braided brake hoses etc (lots of invoices present). Original factory alloy wheels in superb condition and wearing matching Michelin tyres all round. MOT to 1st September 2017 (can be MOT'd for new owner). 3 keys. Straight sale only.
