This sinister Volvo 242 DL has been helping me disturb the peace for about seven years.  I'm the second owner. and it was a well cared for. low mileage original car. when I acquired it.  If it's not obvious enough. this Volvo is far from stock.


The transformation took a few patient years. but it was worth the wait.  The past few years have been a blast. enjoying this car!  In a sentence. it's a Group-A inspired Volvo 242 with some Hot Rod flavor.  All the modifications were carefully selected and fully documented. and supported by the RWD Volvo Turbo Community.  


A sensory overload this car is. indeed. with the sounds. sight. feel & smell…. I haven't yet dared taste it.  But the other senses are enough to get you hooked!  This car's soundtrack is music to my ears…. though your neighbors may disagree.  It's powered by a custom built Twin-Cam Turbo Redblock engine. for those that know. it's a B230FT short block with piston oil squirters. a B234F 16v Head. loaded with Volvo Penta PZ camshafts. and a Mitsubishi TD04HL-16T turbocharger on a Long Tube Even Runner Stainless-Steel Exhaust Manifold.  Attention to detail has not been overlooked. as everything functions. fits and looks beautiful.  


Suspension is all custom. with contributions from Kaplhenke Racing for custom coilover & quick steering components. as well as PSI. trackside at Sonoma Raceway for a set of custom valved Bilstein HD shocks & struts.  Ride quality. steering & handling are beautiful.  It'll stop in a hurry. as well. thanks to 13” rotors on all four corners and Brembo 6-Piston/4-Piston calipers from a Porsche Cayenne…. you'd put your nose into the windshield. if it weren't for the recent SFI legal 4-Point racing harnesses mounted to a professionally TIG welded roll bar. the roll bar alone is pure artwork.


There is no radio. no HVAC. or other nonsense.  This is a Track Ready Car on street tires.  Guaranteed to make you smile. and scare your significant other.  You'll have a blast at your next track day or be the talk of your local Cars & Coffee event.  


In the reliability department. I've made countless road trips in this. as far as Summit County Colorado. Lake Tahoe. Tucson Arizona. and Los Angeles.  Pack some earbuds. but I promise you'd rather listen to this motor than anything on your digital media device.
