1974 Volvo 142 GL

Sorry for relisting. Made an error in the initial listing. Here I have a 1974 Volvo 142 GL. Very Good Shape. Very presentable. Not many left in this condition. It came from North Carolina and had minimal to no rust. I bought this car in 2005 and spent the following two years restoring it. Pretty much everything was replaced, even the front windshield and all rubber. It came with a factory sun roof, very rare for the Volvo 140s. Power brakes, power steering. It currently has a Volvo B20 engine that has been bored to 2130cc with the IPD torque cam. The engine probably has maybe 20K miles on it. Weber downdraft carburetor. M41 transmission. Just recently done all fluid changes with new hoses and belts. Drive shaft u-joints and center carrier bearing replaced. Driveshaft balanced. All ball joints, bearings, bushings replaced. The car was dropped approximately 2" by using VPD's springs. It has Bilsteins HD shocks and Volvo 15" x 6" wheels. IPD front & rear swaybars. The car handles great with this setup. It has vented front brakes as used on the Volvo 164. The rear end has a DANA/Spicer Power-lok unit. It has a Draw-tite trailer hitch and Air Lift air bags inside rear coil springs. The front end has been changed to look more like a '71-'72 140. I just liked it better. It still uses the big rear bumper. Optima Battery relocated to trunk. The car was repainted in its original Volvo color. Windows are tinted. The rear wing is actually from one of the Volvo GrpA 240s that were raced in the early 80's. Very rare. The seats and panels are all original out of a 1977 Volvo 242GT. I found a 240 GT gauge cluster on eBay and custom installed it to the dashboard that was taken from a 1984 240. The headliner also came out of the 1984 car. The car runs and drives, but not as good as I want. When the car is cold, the car does stall when stopped, but starts every time. When the engine warms up, no issues. I have driven around town and on the highway with no issues. I just don't have the time to make it perfect. I am selling it because I just don't use it anymore and looking to downsize my Volvo collection. I have collected several other Volvo 140 parts, i.e. hood, door, fenders, door panels, fiberglass trunk, GT grill that would like to get rid of as well. If interested in any of these items, please make me an offer. No help needing in selling it. Selling car as-is, with no warranty. Please, serious buyers only. Would like to have vehicle picked up within 2-3 weeks after auction ends. If this cannot be met, please let me know before hand. If interested and have question, call me at 740-255-0162. Vehicle is for sale locally as well. Auction could end early.
