First registered new by Volvo UK as a management car for the first twelve months. The original registration number was N841 VEG. In February 1997 at 12 months, ownership was taken over by Lancaster Volvo of Cambridge. The Volvo would have covered 20157 miles at this time. Lancaster Volvo would keep ownership for four years averaging just under 2500 miles per year. The Volvo retained the original registration number during this period.

During April 2002 with approximately 30000 miles on the speedometer the first private elderly gentleman owner would purchase the car from Lancaster Volvo as an approved used vehicle. He would have his private registration number allocated to the car (N3 RRW) on the 24th of April 2002 before taking delivery. He used the Volvo very sparingly for a few years. Adding just over 5000 miles. Soon after he passed away and the Volvo was put into dry storage for many years as the family couldn’t part with the car. The mileage at this time was approximately 35600.

Finally, during July 2015, the Volvo was taken out of storage and sold to the new keeper. After some recommissioning the new keeper would firstly book the Volvo in for a mot test. On the 15th of July 2015 with 35662 miles showing on the speedometer, a pass certificate was issued with no advisories recorded. During 2016 he and his brother (A Motor Mechanic) would carry out further re-commissioning. In addition to the servicing, new Avon tyres were fitted all round, including the spare. A new timing belt was also fitted. All fluids were replaced including the automatic transmission fluid. The new keeper was also very elderly and a real Volvo enthusiast. Almost 5 years on and the speedometer reading has only increased a further 3151 miles. Including a recent 300-mile trip to Edinburgh. The car drives wonderfully.

The most recent keeper being elderly has unfortunately passed away also. I was fortunate enough to be offered the car from his family. The servicing records have been misplaced during the house clearance. I have confirmation from the sellers that the recent work has been completed. With the help of Volvo UK, I have sourced the earlier history up to 25714 miles. Volvo has supplied me with a print out of these service records. Five service records in total. A new mot has just been issued with no advisories recorded. In addition to the mot I have had a service and comprehensive inspection front to back. The workshop was quite amazed with the Volvo. They couldn’t find a single fault.

A Thorough and Honest Description of my Volvo 960 Saloon.

On the Road: The car starts on the first turn of the key. As soon as you drive off you will realise what a well-constructed car this is. The Four Speed Automatic Gear Box changes seamlessly, both up and down the box. The 2. 3T petrol engine is exceptionally smooth with a good turn of power. In true Volvo style, the steering is tight and positive and the suspension and ride is excellent. You know you are driving a large car... The brake pads and discs are in excellent condition and every mechanical and electrical feature is in perfect working order. My Volvo 940 drives as good as the day it left the showroom. Just as you would expect from a low mile’s car. There isn’t a single fault. Everything works as it should.

The Boot Compartment: Spotless, clean, dry and very large. The grey carpets are like new with no stains or wear. All the plastic trim and seals are as new. The spare wheel is a matching alloy and is fitted with a brand-new quality Avon tyre. The jack, brace and tools are all present. The boot compartment really looks like it has seen very little use. The boot compartment is illuminated.

The engine compartment: Simply Stunning. The engine and surrounding interior panels are completely free from oil and dust. Almost as nice as the day it left the factory. Having been in regular indoor storage. Please See My Pictures.

The Vehicle Interior: The vehicle interior is in pristine condition and without a speck of dust to be found. Every square inch of the interior is in excellent order. The rear seating compartment has seen very little use and the front passenger compartment is similar. The driver’s seat including the seat bolsters are in really excellent condition. The dash, door trims and all switches are as near new condition. There is a set of carpet mats and an additional set of Volvo rubber mats. These have gone a long way in keeping the original carpets in showroom condition. The carpets have a really deep luxurious pile. The leather seats are exceptionally comfortable. “I can’t stress enough how nice the interior is”. A really nice place to be…

The Wheels and Tyres: All four Volvo branded alloy wheels are in really excellent condition. There is a small amount of kerbing on one-wheel edge. That’s all. The alloys are quite stunning and suit the car perfectly. All four tyres are in perfect condition. All four tyres are quality branded Avon and were fitted very recently. They all have huge tread depth. The tyre sizes are 195 65 R15.

The Body Work and General Condition: With the exception of perhaps a very, very small blemish you would be hard pushed to find a single thing worth discussion. The exterior paint and panels are in quite exceptional condition. Every panel gap is exact and the Dark Olive Pearl paint is quite amazing. Looking down the vehicle side is like glass. The elderly owners have cherished the car. keeping the car in its current condition. The inner wheel arches are immaculate and the underside is rock solid. As you would expect on a car with such low miles and dry stored when not being used…

So, what are you buying?

A very rare, desirable and super low miles classic spec Volvo car. Supplied in amazing condition. The car drives as nice as the best classic Volvo cars. The exterior body panels and glass is in a genuine immaculate condition. The interior, engine compartment and boot are as near to new condition as you will ever find on an unrestored, original classic Volvo. My Volvo comes with a healthy mot certificate and a recent service. Absolutely everything works as it should. There is nothing for the new owner to attend to. Ready to drive away.

As Good as You Will Ever Find

You Won’t Be Disappointed

Happy to consider your current car as part payment. Providing it is in good order...
