Vehicle Details

This is a rare 780 Bertone coupe in very good body/physical condition. Interior really nice. Exterior has minor paint scratches and imperfections, but no door dings or serious flaws. Looks "showroom quality" for a car of its age, in my opinion. I love this car, but must sell due to inability to identify motor temperature problem described below--which makes this a bit of a "project car" for its new owner--hence the LOW RESERVE. No cracks in dashboard. AC works great with a fresh charge. This was my dream car in 1987 (if I could have afforded it then) ... drives really nice when running (see note below). Have binder full of service records dating back to car's original purchase from Valley Volvo in California in October 1987. I purchased the car in 2016 from its 3rd or 4th owner in Oregon. I just know the right Volvo enthusiast can track down the engine gremlin described below and have a true showpiece for his/her collection.KNOWN ISSUES:- the engine starts right away when "cold," and runs well until the engine reaches a certain temperature level (is what we've been able to figure out) (about 5-10 minutes of driving in Texas temperatures), then stalls and will not restart until the engine cools again--usually overnight. This is the only issue with the motor that we know of, but it's one my Volvo mechanic and I have not been able to track down.- seat heaters don't work- piece of missing body molding above the driver's side door- automatic radio antenna doesn't always raise up all the way (it can be manually raised the full length, and will collapse fully when radio turns off)- front speakers don't work (back speakers do)STILL WORKS!:- Radio/equalizer/cassette tape player (using back speakers)- Electric sunroof- AC/heat climate control (may need freon charge for AC)- Headlights/fog lights- trunk and fuel door release (located inside driver side door body panel)Includes fitted car cover and front set of all-weather floor mats (and full set of carpet floor mats)Car is sold "as is/where is" with no seller warranty, promises, or refunds. Will respond promptly to any questions.
