I love this car and I want to sell it to someone who wants to restoreit and give it the TLC that I just cannot afford to do.
This is a black, manual transmission and is one of 1,920 that were made in 1980. The body is in GREAT condition for a 28 year old car with just one rust spot on the back side behind rear passenger window, a scratch on one side and a missing trim piece the driver's side.
The leather interior is a sight to behold and has been well taken care of. The only wear is really on the driver's side seat which needs to be restored.
The engine is shot with a crack in the engine block that is slowly leaking oil, water pump needs to be replaced, etc. Still drives, but needs babying. The odometer reads 191k+ miles, though the engine was replaced at 85k. I have all the receipts for maintenance on this car going back to that original engine replacement. The driver's side door handle is shot and needs to be replaced. ($100) and while I have owned it the car has never had working A/C.
A great project for someone who has the time, unfortunately that is not me. I have seen low milage versions of this car go for 30k and ones with more wear and tear on the body that drive okay go for 5.5k -7k. I am asking 2k o.b.o. for this truly unique Volvo.
