Default 1992 240 Estate

Chaps,

I've given this a lot of thought but I think it might be time to let my 240 go to a new, more loving home. I'd love to hang on to the car but I don't have the time to do the few bits that are needed to get an MOT and, if I did, I'll soon have nowhere to store it. Plus I'm also not convinced I can justify keeping a project car when I have so many other projects to finish!

With that in mind I was wondering if there was any interest on this forum before I approach the larger world? The car is as follows:

1991 Volvo 240 Estate @ 193K miles
B230F in good condition
Electric fan conversion
100A 940 alternator
New plugs, leads and rotor cap in January 2019
New radiator in September 2018
New all round discs, pads and handbrake shoes January 2019
New lambda sensor April 2019
New Cam belt June 2017
Recon PAS rack June 2017
Front wishbone rear polybushes replaced June 2018
90k mile M47 fitted in October 2018 with recon dogdish flywheel, new clutch, balanced propshaft, new centre bearing and new pilot bearing
Flametrap cleaned and replaced June 2018 (obviously essential)
New Battery in 2017
Both fuel pumps replaced in August 2017
New headlight reflectors October 2015
New CAT-back exhaust June 2018
New pressed number plates June 2018
New Cam cover gasket January 2019
New front wheel bearings April 2019

Plenty of rust work done in the last few years and nothing in any MOT areas but the passenger door and rear door could do with being looked at
New handbrake cables required for an MOT
New inner tie rod required to solve an annoying clunk (supplied with the car)
Some trim missing on the nearside (supplied with the car)
The previous owner had fitted an after market stereo which sometimes works but mostly doesn't and I didn't have time to hunt down electrical gremlins
The push button to reset the trip counter broke on the journey to park the car up which is really, really annoying. I'm guessing it's a faffy but easy fix which I, again, never had time to do.
Could do with a new coolant temperature sensor as the current one has a habit of randomly dropping out

The car had a tough life before I got hold of it but, as you can see, I've put a lot of work in to keeping it going. This would be the perfect restoration project for someone with some time on their hands or a good run around bus for someone who can put in the upkeep work which I don't have time for.

I'm in Portsmouth and the car's currently SORN'd at my Dad's house on the Isle of Wight but I'd be happy to put some tax on it for a pick up in Portsmouth. The car's J972 JDL and has MOT until February 2020 so I'd like to sell before then if anyone's interested. Feel free to drop me a message if you've got any questions. Pictures to follow after I visit this weekend.

1750 ONO

Cheers

Alex

Sorry Teds but I'm trying to reduce the number of projects I've got so I won't consider a swap.

Thanks,

Alex
