1988 Volvo 760 GLE Estate, 83K, FSH, 1 Lady Owner For Sale
1988 Volvo 765 GLE Automatic Estate: Rare flagship of the Volvo range, a £20,000 vehicle 30 years ago, endowed with a lusty 2.8 litre V6 engine coupled to a smooth 4-speed automatic transmission.
Do not confuse the 760 with the 740 or 940 models, they were considerably more expensive, they are much, much rarer now, and with a large 6 cylinder engine and luxury specification they are a totally different and more sought after proposition than a common or garden 740 with its rough 2.0 or 2.3 litre 4 cylinder engine and notchy manual transmission. Nor should the 760 estate be compared with 760 saloon models that might be on sale as a saloon is only ever going to be worth half of that of its estate sibling is.
In genuinely timewarp and show standard condition and I do not use these terms lightly. Only 83,000 genuine miles from new which is exceptionally low for this type of car but this car is further differentiated from all the other 760s by having had only one lady owner from new. There is not just a fully stamped up service history, but an impressive array of invoices detailing all the servicing work that has been carried out. There have been no big repair bills as the car has never gone wrong or needed overhauling, but as with many cherished vehicles the car has been over-serviced and had oil changes annually regardless of the small mileages covered. That is good news for the buyer as the engine is in superb fettle, it sounds wonderful and is creamily smooth and in fact is smoother and more charismatic than the straight 6 multivalve unit that replaced it in the 960 models.
The car was a special order vehicle in Polar White 189, the 760 was not available in white as standard. The flawless paintwork is complemented by an unmarked black leather upholstery.
In addition to the high standard GLE specification this car has numerous Volvo extra-cost options fitted.
I am confident that not only is my 760 the most pristine and outstanding example available but also that it benefits from the most superb provenance too.
