I'm selling my 85 Volvo DL that I just bought.  Financial difficulties that arose soon after I bought this car have made selling it necessary.  I looked for a long time before finding the right car and this is it.  As you can see it has less than 83. 00 miles and I only found one small rust spot on the car and that was in the driver's side spare tire area inside the trunk.  The top. hood and truck have faded paint but on the sides the paint is in remarkably good shape.  The car runs and drives beautifully and has absolutely no issues with engine. transmision. suspension or brakes.   I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere.  
The original Volvo radio works but the casette and power antenna don't.  The dash has some cracks.  The A/C cools but needs work.  The left tail light has been hard wired and will need some attention.  Except for these items I know of nothing the car needs.  I just changed the oil. putting in Royal Purple 5W30 and a premium filter.  It had a pinhole in the power steering reservoir which I repaired.  
I have figured out most of the history of the car from the books and a Carfax.  The Carfax only begins in 1990 but the owner's  manual (which is included) indicates it was bought in Atlanta at Chris Imports (now Marietta Volvo) on 11/3/1984.  The Volvo Service record book that came with the car was kept up until 8/19/1987 when it was serviced at 30260 miles at Chris.  The Carfax shows it received an emissions inspection in California on 10/9/1992 and had 61. 10 miles on it.  A title was issued in Florida in 1997.  It was purchased from an estate in 2012 and sold to the gentleman I bought it from.  I believe I am the fourth owner if you count the person who bought it from the estate to sell.  The Carfax does not indicate any accidents with the car.
  Because I have told you everything I know about the issues the car please don't think it isn't a really a great car. because it is.  It is however a used car and I can't offer any warranties.  I can tell you I would not risk my reputation on Ebay to make a few bucks.  I try to avoid glowing terms that some sellers use knowing the winning bidder will be pleansantly surprised with. not disappointed in. their purchase.
Terms are $500. 00 within 48 hours of close of bidding and the balance within five (5) working days by paypal or 7 working day by cash or financial instrument.  Any type of cashier's check or money order will have to clear before the car is released to a shipper.  I have a clear Florida title.  
OTHER:  Complete tuneup including fuel injection service. plugs. wires. and air filter at 70. 44 miles on 7/21/2013.  On 6/10/13 it had a "prepump" installed which is the fuel pump in the tank I believe.  It has four matching Michelin tires with plenty of tread as shown in the pictures.
