Cool old Volvo 245. Has the original, built like a tank B21 motor with 425k on it. 4 speed manual transmission with overdrive. I originally bought it to do a V8 swap, but my shop space situation has changed and I need to pass it along to the new caretaker.
Runs, drives, shifts and stops. A little cold blooded, I'd probably want to do a tune up before driving it regularly. You can definitely drive it, though. New exhaust and driveshaft support bearing. Static drop on coils. Rides really well. Body is very solid, with only 2 small rust spots behind the rear wheels. I've included pics.
This isn't a car you'll want to drive across the country or do an every day commute with as is, but cruising around town with your tunes playing through the Pioneer's bluetooth you'll get some looks and have tons of fun. Interior is from an 80s vintage wagon and is super clean. Rear cargo area is upgraded with a woodgrain floor and wired for an amp and sub. Just need to plug one in.
Has some rare OEM parts like the flat hood and the GT grill. Tires are good.
If you're looking for a fun, cheap car to mess with, check this one out. Parts for these are super cheap and easy to get.
