Default Volvo 440 GS Turbo Auto

Hey Everyone

I've just found myself over the weekend becoming the proud new owner of this 440 GS Turbo.

I'm led to believe (according to the how many left website) that this is the only GS spec turbo left in the country which makes me rather nervous! ha ha

Anyhoo the car has covered just 37,000 miles and is in excellent condition. Non of the usual rot that's found on the 400 series. Engine bay is immaculate. It will need a few pounds spent tidying it up overall it's extremely clean.

Looking forward to driving it but i'm storing it away for the winter now!

That looks like a special car - well done on obtaining it!

Is this your first 400? Your first Volvo? Whatever, welcome - it's nice to see a new 400 series owner on here since, unfortunately, this section of the forum tends to be as quiet as the grave most of the time...

Thanks David!

It's my second 400 Series, I owned a near identical 440 GS 1.8 back in 2013 but it unfortunately met it's maker when the power steering system failed and i couldn't find some of the parts i needed so it was scrapped sadly!

I've been looking at 440s ever since as i thought it was a wonderful car, so comfy, smooth and quiet. It had no trouble keeping up with modern traffic. The issue being that most of the cars that showed up on eBay/gumtree etc were either absolute rot boxes or were the low spec models which have nothing in comparison to the GS.

I've also owned a 1.4 340 DL, which i must admit i didn't like! And up until last weekend i had a 2005 S40 diesel but some little chav ran into the back of it and it's a write off so this 440 is my only Volvo at the moment. I had to make the choice between buying this and buying an S80 V8 which i had my eye on! Think i made the right decision though! hehe

Haha sorry about that!

It's a lovely car, certainly one for a collector!

It's been parked safely in the garage now and won't be emerging until next year.

I may well get rid of it one day but not anytime soon i'm afraid

Haha thatís cool man, Iím glad itís went to a good home nonetheless!

I have a 440 and a 460 (non turbos but hey ho!), both of which Iím hoping to restore. Hopefully will have both on the road by next year. I see youíre in Scotland too - Iím on the lookout for 400s breaking for parts, so if I hear of any Iíll keep you in the loop too 🙂👍
