I can probably help collect from Maidenhead or Oxford stations too if the timings are right during the week too, then get you either 80% of the way there or 100% of the way there if I've been a good boy and am allowed out to play on that particular day

Much want, and I can't believe this hasn't sold as its mega value.

 

If I could get down to 6cyl_towers I'd have this as you can never have too many Volvos (according to SVM) and this one is auto, estate and even has a towbar, I consider all boxes ticked.

 

edit:

If anyone fancies delivering this to near Bourne Lincs drop me a PM ;)

We had a good poke at this during the last Shitefest so whoever buys this won't regret it as it comes with SVM approval.

My Volvo 940 estate is going to pass its MOT on Friday after a new steering rack is fitted. If I had somewhere to keep this one I would have it as a back up as being down to one estate car can cause difficulties with transporting stuff if it is off the road. Can the 740 be added to a classic car policy because I am still tempted.

Yep. Mines insured on a classic policy and it’s only a few years older than this one.

Ok, so this has now arrived at skattrd_acres.

Thanks to 6cyl for an understanding and easy transaction.

Thanks also to Mr_Bucketeer for giving up his time and for delivery services, it was good to see you again.

 

I've not really driven the car yet, but I might use if for a day or two for work next week to see how I get on with it.  I've never owned a rwd Volvo estate, so it's a first for me, but I expect it'll be easy to live with.

 

I bought this mainly to assist with house and caravan moving duties as my current Volvo estate is not working. Pus, I still regret not purchasing Mr_Fowlers old 760 turbo wagon a couple of years back, so I thought this might be a substitute for that one.

 

 

PS. Bucketeer has first refusal should I decide to pass it on when the house move etc is complete.
