Default Volvo 740 GLE 2.3 Estate 1990 - 1700 ONO

With sad news I am tentatively putting my 740 GLE up for sale.

It is a 1990 H Reg Volvo 740 GLE with the 2.3 B230F engine which I purchased at the start of 2021 as a non-runner. The aim was to get the car started, MOT'd and used as a daily driver.

Volvo 740 GLE Estate
93k miles
B230F Engine
Automatic Transmission
Full Black Leather interior
Electric windows
Aftermarket CD player
Tilt & Slide Sunroof
15inch Rigel Alloy Wheels with good tyres
7 Seat Option - 2 seats in the boot which can be folded away when not used.
MOT till June 2022.

Car was purchased in Jan 2021 as a non-runner and really enjoyed getting up and running and back into daily duties. Lots of new parts refreshed on the car:
HT Leads
Full Service (Oil, Filters, Plugs)
Spaceship Bushes
Re-Built Front Calipers
New Waterpump
Fuel Filter
Replacement front / rear indicators
Winter mats
PCV replacement
New Battery

Car does have the normal issues - speedo has recently failed, headliner dropping in places, stitching has come apart on the drivers seat. Solid car underneath, all jacking points are fine.

Only selling as I need the space due to another car and WFH means I hardly need 1 car let alone 2. My other car (Mini) is also up for sale as well. Also the funds from the sale will go towards a house purchase. If the other car sells first then I will keep the Volvo

I have a thread on here with all the updates done to the car.

Listed for 1700 but open to offers.

Keep the Volvo, will save you hiring a van when you move house!!

What's the matter with the car I'm driving?
Can't you tell that it's out of style?
Should I get a set of white wall tires?
Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?
