"The Volvo runs smoothly and presents a good overall impression both inside and outside."


The current owner acquired this Volvo in January 2021 from a car dealership. According to reports, the car had been sitting in a garage with a previous owner who didn't quite have the time for it. The current owner purchased the Volvo as a small project but also wanted a car she could use for outings during the summer and for shorter trips to events and friends. The car has received a new exhaust system from the catalytic converter backward, new brake pads, new front brake shields, and a new left rear brake caliper. The Volvo is equipped with a sunroof and has not been driven extensively, with the odometer reading a mere 71 000 km.

Facts about the model

Most of us have at some point owned, driven, ridden in, or have memories of a Volvo 740, a true Swedish classic. The new 700 series was launched in 1982, initially as a six-cylinder premium car. In 1984, the four-cylinder version, the Volvo 740, was introduced. The first model was the GLE version with fuel injection and 129 hp. Following that was the true volume model, the GL, with a carburetor and 112 hp.

In the 1988 model year, there were various equipment versions, and a GLT 16 Valve with higher power was introduced. The regular GLE version had 131 hp and featured an equipment package with extended chrome, aluminum wheels, plush upholstery, central locking, and more. After years of hectic family life and hard work in professional traffic, the population of these workhorses is now rapidly declining. For those that have been cared for and survived, a new era begins as a collector's car.
