Thorsday Snow Day: 1990 Volvo 740 Turbo Wagon

This next car comes as a tip from TeleArrow who writes: Here’s a properly boxy Volvo for your Thorsday. I don’t know why I like the look of these things so much, maybe it’s because it’s what you would draw if you were 7 and asked to draw a wagon. This Turbo looks to be in decent shape. As always, wish it was a manual. Find this 1990 Volvo 740 Turbo Wagon offered for $5500 in Vermont via craigslist.

Selling my 1990 740 turbo wagon. Coming out of long term ownership. This car is rust free, with no modifications (except taillights) and lots of new parts.

Very rare car in this condition (these days)
Great useable investment
7 passenger
Great interior
Trailer hitch and wiring

Newly installed: taillights, plugs, wires, oil change, all boost hoses, vacuum hoses, tires, windshield, window switches, door handles……

The overall condition is good. Lots of dings and scratches but no rust. Interior is good also…..worn from use but fully original and complete.

Car starts, runs, shifts and drives great. No smoke, plenty of boost and a good brake feel. Everything in the car works including the original radio, wipers, lights….. no warning lights on the dash. Inspected until next year. The car even has seat heaters (haven’t tried). The car also has A/C (not hooked up) and a trailer hitch.

Needs: car shows 177,000 miles but speedometer comes and goes. Probably over 200,000 realistically. Rear hatch trim is broken. Missing a rear facing seat buckle. Temp gauge slow to react. Timing belt is in good shape but I have a kit on order

$5500 obo trades considered
