5k: Repeat Offender: 1992 Volvo 240 B230FT Swap

Another day, another boxy blue Volvo sedan on the pages of Daily Turismo, except this one we’ve featured before.  But the reasons for posting it then are still valid today — this car represents the best money spent on a car…the other guy’s.  Find this 1992 Volvo 240 B230FT Swap currently bidding for $1,702 on ebay located in Houston, TX with 6 days to go.

The last time this car was featured on turbobricks forums it was purchased by a member named jaxwithanax and it moved to Texas.  That was a little more than 1 year ago, and now Jaxwithanx on ebay is looking to sell it with a no reserve ebay auction — although the questions/answers section shows he is willing to take an offer and mentions $5k for clean/stock examples…  It’ll be interesting to see if it bidding gets near the $6k range (that is asking price, actual sale was probably less) by the end of the auction.

This car isn’t just a boxy blue beauty queen, it also has major mechanical upgrades to go along with the cosmetic,
like the B230FT turbocharged 2.3L engine from a later 940. Stock, this
would have put out about 165 hp but they can easily be tweaked past the
200 hp mark with minor fueling and boost modifications. This one has
been cranked up to 14 psi with what is likely the stock turbo.
