Description Volvo 740 turbodiesel estate, manual overdrive 'box, new mot

So here we have my Volvo up for sale, only because I have too many projects on the go & I have another estate car (xantia) so one of them has to go, I've had the xantia on here & other sites & it didn't sell, so I'll try my luck with the Volvo!
Well what can I say, I've just got back from the garage where it pretty much flew through the mot, only an advisery on slight play in a track rod end, so not bad for 27 years old!
I've had it since the beginning of November, (it was a bit of an impulse by on ebay!) so I didn't really need it, just always fancied one of these!
In my ownership I've fitted new rear springs (old ones were saggy) propshaft mount & bearing, gearbox mount, new clutch kit, 2 tyres & various servicing parts, I also got some chrome Volvo hubcaps as I think these look better, I do have the original plastic ones, but only 3 as one fell off, these will go with the car.
Also with the car is a pretty much full service history, loads of old mot's going back to almost the 1st one, & it's had quite a few things, a new cylinder head, full stainless powerflow exhaust, new steering rack to name a few.
Prior to the mot I did the first bit of welding it's ever had, on the drivers side outrigger, there was a hole about the size of a 5p piece, & apart from that, there is literally no rust, thanks to the galvanising & extensive rust protection these cars had when new, there are no dents, but as you'd expect with 27 year old paint, there are a few marks, but it's generally pretty good.
Most things work, apart from the drivers heated seat (passenger works!) & the aircon pump & rad has been removed so obviously doesn't work, the sunroof does work, but needs a new dust seal as you have to tuck it back in when you close it again, but that's about it, heated electric mirrors work, windows, overdrive works sweet, it drives really nice can't fault it really.
The two things that let it down really it the bonnet which is in the pics has some big blobs of tree sap on, I have managed to get some of it off with boiling water, & will have another go this week, but it takes ages! The other thing, also in the pics is the headliner, which obviously sagged & then a previous owner pulled the cloth off & tried to paint the fibre backing, doesn't look great, but could probably be solved with some sticky back felt or something.
So to somerise, a great solid old Volvo, these diesels are pretty rare too, with a brand new mot, ready to enjoy or put to work, I will consider sensible offers, I am located in Worcester park, just off the A3 in London (not far from Wimbledon) you're welcome to come & view, just send me a message
