Oh well. If no interest then it looks like I'll be keeping it for a while.

It's a decent car, thought it would at least warrant an offer of some kind.

Hahaha, had more Daf's than Volvo's so I am conditioned to use variomatic instead of CVT

Really do need this to be going to a new owner. My 3 door 1989 Volvo 340DL. It's the 1.4 engined CVT conveyance.

The good bits:

I'm the second owner. It comes with handbook stuff and the dealer cassette. Never seen or heard of that before in any of my Volvo purchases.

I had the car mopped and polished and it looks rather nice.

I fitted new rear tailgate struts so the tailgate no longer crushes your skull each time you need to root around in the boot.

It has older Fox alloys fitted with excellent and almost new looking tyres. Chrome wheel nuts now fitted. Steelies are in the boot but they will need a refurb.

The interior is 99.9999997% mint. The door card on the drivers side is slightly damaged on the meagre arm rest type bit. The rear view mirror fell off in the excessive period of heat that we had a few weeks ago but all fixed now. Volvo rubber mats are fitted. The belts and varios are in great condition. Exhaust is fairly recent but has had a repair.

New 4" door speakers fitted, sounds very nice indeed.

Keep fit windows! Heated seats, although not sure if they work as it's been pretty warm anyway so can't really tell. Everything else works.
Oh yes. Mileage is showing as 14,000 but according to the MOT history it's 55,976 miles more. Possibly a speedo change in January 2006, sorry folks for any issues there.

The downsides: The N/S front wing has some rust on it, at the very bottom of the trailing section. It's very repairable. The drivers door is missing a rubbing strip and the door itself has a couple of shallow dings in it just on the swage line. A couple of the wheel arches have been scraped and will need a minimal bit of repairing. Not horrible but they are there. The N/S rear 1/4 panel has been scratched in a couple of areas.

It has a goodly bit of MOT on it (March 2018) and has 'get you home' tax.

The car is in Edmonton in North London and I am asking 995. MOT till March 2018.
