Don't have to sell this but if someone wants to wrest it out of my mitts then that's ok too.

 

It is a dark grey 3 door Volvo 340 DL. It's the 1.4 engined variomatic transmission conveyance.

 

The good bits:

 

I'm the second owner.

 

It comes with handbook stuff and the dealer cassette. Never seen or heard of that before.

 

I had the car mopped and polished and it looks rather nice.

 

I fitted new rear tailgate struts so the tailgate no longer crushes your skull each time you need to root around in the boot.

 

It has older Fox alloys fitted with excellent and almost new looking tyres. Steelies are in the boot but they will need a refurb.

 

The interior is 99.9999997% mint. The door card on the drivers side is slightly damaged on the meagre arm rest type bit. The rear view mirror fell off in the excessive period of heat that we had a few weeks ago. I will fix.

 

The door speakers were dead so I have new 4" ones to fit.

 

Keep fit windows! Heated seats, although not sure if they work as it's been pretty warm anyway.

 

Everything works.

 

Oh yes. Mileage is showing as 14,000 but may be 50,000 higher. Poss speedo change, sorry folks for any issues there.

 

The downsides:

 

The exhaust, despite looking like it is not very old at all, decided to break whilst gambolling along on the A12 the other week. This was bodged skillfully repaired a la A Team stylee at my Daf owning mates place in Essexland. It needs to be welded - this will be done soon.

 

The N/S front wing has some rust on it,at the very bottom of the rear bit. It's repairable.

 

The drivers door is missing a rubbing strip and the door itself has a couple of shallow dings in it just on the swage line.

 

A couple of the wheel arches have been scraped and will need a minimal bit of repairing. Not horrible but they are there. 

 

The N/S rear 1/4 panel has been scratched. It has a goodly bit of MOT on it and has 'get you home' tax on it.

 

A neighbour was going to purchase it off me but said today that their Labrador needed the vets so the funds were diverted.

 

I will try and get some pics up today or tomorrow.

 

It is a smart looking car despite the bodywork issues as mentioned above.

 

It starts, runs and drives as happily as a happy thing.

 

Shitters only price is £800, this is certainly cheaper than what the neighbour was going to pay.

You can see the bit of damage on the door card. Bit like the green 3 door Rover I had.

 

1989 car.

 

MOT until 3rd May 2018.

I want but as usual can't afford. Something about the variomatic that appeals for strange reasons........

A lot of them have moved on now. The v3m forum is utterly dead and I never see them going sideways any more.

The novelty gearbox will also prevent this occurring in 99/100 cases.

I like these. A lot. I've had 3 and my parents had 2 more. GLWS.

Ken that is fit and a steal at £800.
But with self shifter 1400cc and a car that is heavier than the front row of a slimming world clinic I would imagine that it accelerates like a continent.

Whoops guys. Looks like that mileage may well be incorrect.MOT history shows a higher mileage. May well have been a speedo change.

 

May be 50K more. However, it is still a clean car.

I remember an ex work colleague had a Y plate one that need the inner wings welding. The guy doing the repair said the metal was a bastard to sort because it was that thick.

Have these got the gearbag up the back or is that just the "big block" ones?

 

The bulky variomatic gubbins occupy the same space under the back seat as the manual versions, transmitting the drive via shafts to each rear wheel on a De-dion back axle.  The centrifugal clutch sits where a normal clutch would be.  The way these CVTs work is fascinating.  Almost constant revs whilst accelerating and probably quicker off the mark than a worn Stop/Start rep-mobile which takes at least 2 seconds to do anything useful.

 

GLWTS.
