    • @flagmichael nope. Wrong info. 760. Was same chassis but different hood, door panels, melting wiring harness. Internal key pins. Independent rear end. Was offered in a NA 6 cylinder or 4cylinder turbo only ZF automatic transmission. Center console different. Auto climate control.

    • @Tristin Coveyou that is a RARE car in the U.S. In my 20 plus years I've only seen 3. I should have never sold my black '86 744 GLE M46. A year newer than yours.

    • @Allan Foster T5 was started with FWD platform. R sport was offered up to 200 series. No special racing platform offered for the 700- 900 series. Except SE trim level with body kit. 760 n 780 Bertone was offered with Garrett turbo. 780 with additional turbo plus kit.

  • You forgot to point out how Volvo dashboards of this era are attached to the firewall in the finest "eco" fashion - i.e., biodegradable plastic joints. Research this issue and discover how incredibly impossible it is to remedy this impending disaster. Otherwise known as "shaky dash" which starts off as "squeaky dash" the only solution is a new one: guess what that costs. Assuming you can find a new OEM part. And no, a used part only reintroduces the problem. Death knell.

  • The 7 is the siries like 140 240 340 440 740 940 850 of car the 6 is the number of cylinders like 4 6 5 cylinder and the 0 is the door number 0 is the normal sedan and 2 is two door and 5 is the station wagon so it chould be a 745

  • You didn't mention the noise issue under heavy load. My guess would be it's a boost leak probably air squeaking out of the intercooler someplace. That can make a hellacious racket sometimes.

  • I live in New Hampshire where we have harsh winters . I see more "old" Volvos on the road than any other make . The cars used to be built like tanks , they don't rust and are simple and inexpensive to repair . Volvo starting really going down hill around 2000 , now they are just problematic luxury cars . Gone are the days of owning a Volvo with 400k miles on it unless you have deep pockets to repair.

Its not that Hard really as it could come whit THE PRV V6 that race THE band, 740 came later and only had Four cylinders engines tel Tears later.

  • 5 hours to change both struts? I'd say if not every bolt is rusted it takes about an hour to remove the struts and change them.. some heating might be needed to remove the struts from the "coilover" itself because you have the hub and everything connected so therfore you need to remove everything to get it out but it's a pieace of cake :D

  • The thing about the 200, 700 and 900 families of volvo cars is that they are basically the same modles just tweaked a little bit. It's like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it. then they tride to fix it and we gut crap like the v series and s series. which I could care less about. also the 760 you got is a good platform if you knwo what to do with it.

  • Wow. I thought I was the only one that appreciated a brick with a stick. I bought a 2001 V70 T5 new...and because I was the main caregiver to my two little kids as a stay-at-home dad, the 'safe' car that I was going to trundle them around in had to be COOL! So I went to my local Volvo dealer (Cleveland) and requested him to find me a 'brick with a stick'. At first, the noob told me Volvo didn't make one. After convincing him they did...and that I really did want one, he started making phone calls. A week later he called me and said he'd found one. The dealership would have to do a dealer trade with the only Volvo dealership east of the Mississippi (DC metro area) that had a V70 with a stick. I drove that thing for ten years and 90,000 miles. Just did the usual maintenance things...when I traded it in it had the same clutch. I liked the car so much I bought a 2005 S60 R that was awesome, too.

  • In the mid-90's volvo entered these bricks into the British touring car series. As shouldn't be much of a surprise considering the long wheel base and long flat roof, they not only dominated the series but left all the other cars standing. In fact so fast were these that the fia changed the touring car rules so that the rear wing had to be placed lower than roof line of these cars which effectively removed them from the racing series after only a handful of races. Now, it's interesting to note that the volvos didn't require a rear wing so the introduction of a forced placement lower than the roofline is what killed this off. It also effected their marketing as they were going to market it on this win. Back in the 90's the btc was very well patroned and wins=sales. They looked good too.
