Well it looks like I might be moving from Wisconsin to the PacNW later this year. so my daily driver 744 turbo has to go to make room for a wagon of some kind.

1988 Volvo 744 turbo. I bought this car from an engineer for Lycoming (helicopter company) who brought this car up from Texas and had maintained it meticulously for most of its life. Virtually no rust. washed regularly.

142k miles. Running Shell synthetic oil. Turbo pulls hard with no smoking. Recent timing belt replacement. Lots of new vacuum lines. new trans mount. valve cover gasket. IPD poly accessory mounts. etc. Transmission shifts strong and has no issues.

IPD lower front brace. IPD poly bushings all throughout the front end too. Recent brakes on all four corners. Great heat (no idea if A/C works. but the compressor seems to kick on). Interior is pretty nice. driver's door map pocket has a crack but all other panels are intact. Heated seats. but only passenger works. Dashboard back lights have all been converted to LED. Has a nice Kenwood HD Radio/Bluetooth stereo. Infinity speakers. and an 8" low profile active sub in the trunk. Front end has been converted to E-codes with DJAuto clear corners.

Currently rolling on 15" Dracos with General Altimax Arctic snow tires. I also have a set of 16" Hydras that need refinishing. and a whole bunch of other spare parts I would include in the sale for my asking price.

Only problems with the car: leaks a drop or two of oil when parked. Driveshaft center support bearing makes a little noise on below-zero days (I drove it to Upper Michigan and back with no issues like this). Not a big deal at all. Keep in mind it is a 25-year-old vehicle and has typical dings and dents. but this Volvo will surely provide hundreds of thousands more miles of additional service with typical maintenance. Volvo sure builds them to last!

Hop in and drive anywhere! Or add a boost gauge and controller. turn it up to 12psi. and have some real fun! Check out turbobricks. com if you're not familiar with these cars.

Asking $3000; located in Milwaukee. WI. I wouldn't be selling this car if a move wasn't imminent. but now I need a wagon so it is what it is.
