@flagmichael nope. Wrong info. 760. Was same chassis but different hood, door panels, melting wiring harness. Internal key pins. Independent rear end. Was offered in a NA 6 cylinder or 4cylinder turbo only ZF automatic transmission. Center console different. Auto climate control.

@Tristin Coveyou that is a RARE car in the U.S. In my 20 plus years I've only seen 3. I should have never sold my black '86 744 GLE M46. A year newer than yours.

@Allan Foster T5 was started with FWD platform. R sport was offered up to 200 series. No special racing platform offered for the 700- 900 series. Except SE trim level with body kit. 760 n 780 Bertone was offered with Garrett turbo. 780 with additional turbo plus kit.

245 - 2 series, 4 cylinder, 5 door/station wagon. 265 - 6 cylinder 5 door. 262 - 6 cylinder coupe etc. 760 5 door would have been 765 in the old system, but they had scrapped the number of doors, third number for a fat, round zero by then. However, the 6 might also mean certain turbocharged 4 cylinder (they produced low pressure 100,000rpm and high pressure 250,000rpm turbo charger versions, confusing hey?!), or V6 naturally aspirated motors. So the 6 suggested a more powerful variant eg. a turbo-ed 4 or V6, and 4 was a non-turbo, er, 4! My old diesel 940 was called a 940 despite having 6 cylinders (VW's old slogger, but turbo-ed and with the non-turbo compression ratio of 23:1 and 5K red line, a real screamer and quite impressive performance for a 1.5 ton barge, although you really had to use the gearbox to make it shift, absolutely nothing below 2,500rpm, no electronic interference, and 6 cylinder motors always were screamers, even diesels. I LOVED it! Never less than 30mpg (imp.) and up to 45 if you drove with a light right foot) as its HP was similar to a non-turbo petrol 4... It IS confusing, but once you get it, it's easy! (I had a 162 once - 1 series, straight 6 high revving petrol motor, 2 door/coupe. Amazing fun! Auto box and overdrive, if rather thirsty)

I love Volvo. I bought new 1988 240Dl 5 speed. My wife and I picked it up in Italy. Second day, drove to Germany at 80 mph for 600 miles and had first free service. Third day drove it at 90 mph for 600 miles back to Italy and our house ear Pisa. Had it service and then took it out and red line it in 5 th gear. Speedo was buried over 130. We drove the car around 120 mph on vacation. We keep the care for over 2 hundred thousand miles. NEVER broke down. Great car. The weak point is a/c. We donated it to a boys school.

You forgot to point out how Volvo dashboards of this era are attached to the firewall in the finest "eco" fashion - i.e., biodegradable plastic joints. Research this issue and discover how incredibly impossible it is to remedy this impending disaster. Otherwise known as "shaky dash" which starts off as "squeaky dash" the only solution is a new one: guess what that costs. Assuming you can find a new OEM part. And no, a used part only reintroduces the problem. Death knell.

Is this the Volvo that had the Ad that stated, "In the past wagons were built to haul things. This wagon was built to haul ass!" I remember that Ad from a car magazine when I was in high school, but I am not sure if this Volvo is the same model from the Ad.

Many moons ago (2005 ish), in a far away land to Hoovie (Derby) - a 1984 245 Turbo Intercooled wagon lived at my house... it had a manual transmission as well. I still miss that car...

I've driven one of these as a courtesy car, it had seen better days I'm sure but I had to drive it with the accelerator mashed into the floor to get it moving. It accelerated like an overloaded truck and rattled like mad even at low speed.

The 7 is the siries like 140 240 340 440 740 940 850 of car the 6 is the number of cylinders like 4 6 5 cylinder and the 0 is the door number 0 is the normal sedan and 2 is two door and 5 is the station wagon so it chould be a 745
kens97sto171 Prije 5 mjeseci
You didn't mention the noise issue under heavy load. My guess would be it's a boost leak probably air squeaking out of the intercooler someplace. That can make a hellacious racket sometimes.

I live in New Hampshire where we have harsh winters . I see more "old" Volvos on the road than any other make . The cars used to be built like tanks , they don't rust and are simple and inexpensive to repair . Volvo starting really going down hill around 2000 , now they are just problematic luxury cars . Gone are the days of owning a Volvo with 400k miles on it unless you have deep pockets to repair.

in europe noone drives anymore old volvos like 2005 year or 2010 they are just to much expensive to repair.

This is hands down, flat out the best car you have purchased My friend bought one with 189k on it. He drove it 100k and then sold it to another of our friends who was absolutely in love with it. That friend put another 150k on it origonal motor and trans (standard like yours) And had 0 intention of ever getting rid of it, but somone rear ended him at a light and destroyed it

Mercedes w123 diesel of that Day was Good cars hur painfully slow. 760 was THE luxury version and Gould come sitt a v6 or THE turbo Four came in 1984, so i Guess this is like a GLE turbo, THE 740 Turbo was mord aimed at a bit kort sporty stycke than this. Its not that Hard really as it could come whit THE PRV V6 that race THE band, 740 came later and only had Four cylinders engines tel Tears later.

If you decide to keep the car, Hoovie's next quest will be to locate the official Turbo+ kit from Volvo which is a chip that boosts the HP by a whopping 13hp and torque any another @20 lb/ft! 😜. There maybe a few more kits at the Volvo warehouse.

J.M Prije 7 mjeseci
5 hours to change both struts? I'd say if not every bolt is rusted it takes about an hour to remove the struts and change them.. some heating might be needed to remove the struts from the "coilover" itself because you have the hub and everything connected so therfore you need to remove everything to get it out but it's a pieace of cake :D

The thing about the 200, 700 and 900 families of volvo cars is that they are basically the same modles just tweaked a little bit. It's like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it. then they tride to fix it and we gut crap like the v series and s series. which I could care less about. also the 760 you got is a good platform if you knwo what to do with it.

Wow. I thought I was the only one that appreciated a brick with a stick. I bought a 2001 V70 T5 new...and because I was the main caregiver to my two little kids as a stay-at-home dad, the 'safe' car that I was going to trundle them around in had to be COOL! So I went to my local Volvo dealer (Cleveland) and requested him to find me a 'brick with a stick'. At first, the noob told me Volvo didn't make one. After convincing him they did...and that I really did want one, he started making phone calls. A week later he called me and said he'd found one. The dealership would have to do a dealer trade with the only Volvo dealership east of the Mississippi (DC metro area) that had a V70 with a stick. I drove that thing for ten years and 90,000 miles. Just did the usual maintenance things...when I traded it in it had the same clutch. I liked the car so much I bought a 2005 S60 R that was awesome, too.

The 700- and the later 900 series was really the end of an era when Volvo made truly great cars. They were so simple and durable and so typical Swedish they could have come from IKEA.
