Volvo 740GLE Estate 2.3i Auto - MOT Dec 2018 ready to drive away. £395

Recommended Posts

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 ;)

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.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
