Well...it's time to sell the Volvo! It's been a trusty steed for me in the year I've owned it. From loading up taking my family on holiday to popping to the shops it's been faultless but company car has arrived so the daily driver has to go.
It's on 65k miles and has had 2 previous owners (one of which was the first owner who had it 27 years!) It still lives in the town it was first registered!
The bodywork is generally good for its age with a few car park dings here and there due to being looked after by an old lady for so long! The finish of the paint is still very good and comes up well with a quick wash. There are however a couple of bits of rust coming through on the front doors and at the rear of the passenger sill, but they are far from concerning.
Mechanically the car runs sweet and with the 5-speed box it cruises well on the motorway and for a car this size it handles fairly well. No squeaks or clunks from the suspension. There is a slight blow in the exhaust, it's a tiny whole in the rear silencer (modern cars have a drain hole there anyway lol).
In the year I've owned it, it's had the following:
- HT leads
- Spark Plugs
- 2 oil and filter changes
- New air filter
- fuel hoses replaced
- vacuum hoses replaced
- 2 rear tyres
- New front brake pads
- New rear brake wheel cylinders
- New rear wheel bearing (pig of a job)
- full cooling system flush and fresh coolant
And a few other bits and bobs I can't think of!
It's a really honest little car and will be a great usable classic for someone. I have tons of pictures so if you just let me know and I'll fire some over!
