For Sale

1992 Volvo 240 Estate Torslanda

Custom Turbo

Sold

In detail…

This is one of the coolest cars for sale in the UK today. Owning and driving this car is quite an experience. 320hp and only 1550kg. Rear wheel drive and no traction control.

This car is awesome. It turns heads everywhere and blows all but supercars away on the road, especially on mid range performance when overtaking. I’ve even had people leave notes on the window saying whoever owns this car must be really cool. haha

We rented this car to the BBC for their program Gassed Up. In order to satisfy their safety requirements a full custom roll cage was made and fitted. This remains in place. Therefore it is currently a two seater. I have the rear seat still which will go with the car. Obviously this is now an ideal track day car. Or just a weekend thrasher.

This is what has been done:

B230fk engine and m90 gearbox swapped

Fully rebuilt engine in 2018 with new forged rods, piston rings, bearings etc

Now the important bit. The head gasket has gone and although it still runs it would be foolish to do so. It needs the head off and skimming as well as a full flush through and check over. I sincerely believe this is the only issue but I can’t guarantee this. Why am I not fixing it? I have dozens of cars around me and only one part time mechanic until I outsource. I just haven’t got to this and don’t know when I will. We can fix it for you via our restoration/engineering partners over at Project Heaven.
