This is a car that I originally found in Richmond VA two years ago through DT. It needed a whole lotta love to get it back to where it needed to be, but there was a great foundation to work with. It had me at Fuel injection, stick shift, RWD v8 volvo.
Find this 1990 Volvo 745 Wagon offered for $10,000 in Garner, NC via craigslist.
Mike continues with a list of recently fixed items:
...entire fuel system tank to rails, manual crank sunroof swap, new full length exhaust, AC work, full cloth interior swap from a nice donor car, new paint, new shoes, custom one piece drive shaft and on and on. Been having a great time with it since. One shockingly fast little wagon and most definitely not a sloppy,carbureted Frankenstein. The original builder started with a Ford Motorspsorts high perf crate motor and brand new world class T-5, not a warmed over salvage yard special. I just swapped out a weeping Fomoco power steering pump and the shop remarked just how smooth this car runs. No leaks whatsoever now.
I won't be heartbroken to keep it a while if it doesn't sell for what I'm asking, but looking for somebody who appreciates a well done swap with parts that work In a fun low profile package (until they hear the large bore flowmasters). And especially if they are Volvo people. Heck, if people don't even consider just what it takes to make all the stock dash gauges work with a very different drivetrain, they should probably stick to looking at available color options on the new Camry.....
