1979 volvo 265 GL 2.7 wagon

Very clean ride 113k on the car unknown on the302 V-8has auto tranny & Posi-trac, duel exhaust it was garaged for 20 years before thenew owners put the V-8 in it. Super fun ride. Runs great, interior isnice &clean butthere is some wear on the seats, exterior is in good shape. please look at photos carefully and ask all questions before bidding.

Non refundable deposit due within 24 hrs. balance due within 5 days. We understand getting shipping together can sometimes take a little whileespeciallyin this neck of the woods. We will give the buyer 30 days to have a shipper pick up the car or for the buyer tofly/bus/train in and drive it home.

You would never guess there is a V8 hiding in there until you get on it. At about 60mph there is some vibration but nothing major. We have had this in to the shop and are told that its nothing major, a clip that Volvo would have had on the underneath by the tranny. this was removed for the tranny/motor conversion it is nothing major but because of this wewouldn't recommend driving it across country it runs good and no over heating problems but It just wasn't built for those long trips if you were running from here to Idaho or Washington it would probably be ok but it is More of a squeak the tires leaving the stop light kind of car not built for 75mph on the interstate.
A few small surface rust spots, the worst being on the passenger side rear bottom (see photo) we plan to treat the rust in this area and repaint it black so that the rust doesn't do any more damage. Doors open and close good, Windows work good only other flaws is the back wiper doesn't work. This could be a fuse or it wasn't hooked up when the conversion was done. Also the speedometer wasn't dialed in when the conversion was done so it shows you are hitting 100 mph and in actuality you are doing about 65/70... Really for a car creeping up on 40 years old it's in pretty great shape. It may have been granny's grocery getter at one time but now it's got some get up & go!!
