1981 Volvo 262C Bertone Coupe for sale. 104,895 miles. For those who don't know what the 262c is, t was a 242 thatVolvoshipped toItalyto be customized by Bertone. It was outfitted with the PRV 2.8 V6 engine that is the same that was used in the Delorean DMC 12 and many other vehicles of that era. Bertone also chopped the roof of the car for a lower stance and put fine leather on everything possible inside. These cars sold new for $20,000 or more. Which was a tough market in 1981, hich is why only 912 of these were produced that year. These vehicles were numbered, nd this one looks to be #008544.
I have a huge amount of receipts for maintenance on this car, ven a receipt for purchase at over 20k. Original manual. Vehicle is black with blackItalianleather interior. Clear title in my name. Undercarriage is very solid with no holes. Body is fairly solid, as a few rusty spots, ainly surface rust but does have some small holes in the lower rear quarters and upper part of right side rocker panel. Doors are solid. Paint could use redone. Passenger mirror is broken, river mirror is bent a little bit. All glass is good, mall chip in windshield that I saw and right side door glass has scratches that could probably be buffed out. Has the extremely rare crown badges, hich are all intact. Wheels are in ok shape, ut missing 2 center caps, ires all hold air and front ones are useable. Radio works, nable to test any of the other electronics. Interior isn't bad for the age, arpet is excellent and would clean up very nice, hat I think are the original floor mats. Seats are ok, river has stitches coming apart and some of the dye is worn off. Dash has a few cracks. Rear seat and headliner are near perfect.
Now for the bad. The car has been sitting for an unknown amount of time. I bought it from an estate auction because I thought it was cool looking and I know how well Volvos hold up over the years. After that I found out how rare these cars actually are. After having keys made for it, realized that the engine is seized and the car will not run. Lots of people have swapped SBCs into these, r SBFs, hich is my plan if the car doesn't sell. It rolls fine and the transmission moves through gears ok. Tail lights are broken out.
Please keep in mind that you are bidding on a project or parts car, hich will need work. It does not run and therefore I cannot test and functionality of anything. I have described what I know as best as I can, ut there may be things that I have overlooked. Please review the pictures and ask any further questions before bidding.
