1990 Volvo Bertone 780 Coupe Turbo Auto 740 240 For Sale
This 780 Coupe was originally exported to the USA and is a 1990-built car, being in the final 300 cars manufactured by Bertone in Italy.
The original owner lived in Pennsylvania, having purchased the car from Lehman Volvo in 1991.
I spent a few years seeking out a well looked-after 780, and found this car in Florida - It had only moved there in late 2017 from PA - and I brought it to the UK in 2018.
On arrival, I swapped the USA spec lights for new-old-stock Euro headlamps and tail lights at a cost of over £1100. The USA headlamps were not great, even when new, and I prefer the Euro units anyway.
The car is now aligned with European Specification, as I have also installed wing-repeater indicators (instead of Volvo badges) and the AirCon controls are in Celsius rather than the USA-spec Fahrenheit.
I have had the bonnet and boot repainted, to remove age-related marking / chips.
The only external signs of its USA-specification beginnings are the front corner indicator lamps (as I prefer the US units with in-built reflectors), though these can easily be changed for Euro units if preferred.
The car is UK registered and fully UK road legal.
It currently has a UK dateless registration, this will be removed prior to sale.
The interior is cream leather in *very* good condition - There is no reason to believe the car has ever been smoked-in, certainly there is no sign of that and the headlining is immaculate. There is some minor sun-discolouration of the rear parcel-shelf, the dash-board top is undamaged.
I am happy to arrange to FaceTime/Skype with any potential buyer and walk-around the car.
