This sale is for a 1978 Volvo 242GT. It starts right up and runs good. The transmission is tight and shifts well. The overdrive unit engages as it should with the sliding button on the shifter. It drives really nice and is very comfortable. It has plenty of power to get around town and comfortably go down the highway. The sound of the turbo is really fun to listen to. I really like watching the turbo gauge go up. I really enjoy driving this car. It turns heads as well because it is not a very common car.
It has a 1984 Volvo 242GLT B21FT water-cooled intercooled turbo engine installed in it. It has the IBS system on it, so it provides 8-10 psi of boost depending on what RPM you are running. We also decided to swap the entire wiring harness and convert the newer wiring harness to fit the original 1978 instrument cluster. All the gauges work in the cluster. I have also converted the cluster to use a solid state voltage regulator for more accurate fuel and temperature gauge readings. We also converted the harness to work with the sliding over drive button.
This car handles well. We lowered it a bit to achieve a ride height that looked nice. I have installed a ZF steering rack on the car. It also has the newer style steering column with the splined shaft. I have adjusted the suspension for maximum negative camber, which is not much. We installed KYB shocks on the car and they give it a nice comfortable ride. We elected to use an IPD 1" (25mm) sway bar up front and a stock 23mm sway bar on the back. All the bushings appear to be in good shape. All the tie rods and ball joints appear to be in good condition as well.
I have stated that the sale of this vehicle is only available for local pickup only, however if you are an international or domestic buyer I have no issue with you arranging a company to pickup the vehicle. I am happy release to the vehicle to a reputable transporter once everything is figured out.
