    Volvo 144 saloon 1973 Essex 2,450

    Volvo saloon 144 model starts and runs, since the photo was taken, the Engine has had new plugs, HT leads, air and oil filters, fresh oil, gaskets, carb gasket, thermostat, master cylinder has been replaced with a N.O.S Item, and a new dizzy cap has also been fitted.


    Car was driven into a barn over 18 years ago in winter, some welding required the panel both sides at the front of the bulkhead where the water gathers up under the front wings will need repairing, BUT! most of the car is solid! this area is the worst and not a difficult task if your a dab hand with a welder, the car does start and drive, it stopped but not very well so brakes will need an overhaul (18 years in a barn so not a surprise) the car will need a battery, and could do with a tune up.
    Front wings were not very good, so two have been sourced, & very hard to find a pair, BOTH are STEEL NOT Fibreglass.


    This has the original springs but there are two lowered springs already fitted at the front, seats were a mess so i have fitted others but they will need dyeing, the previous owner started to dye the brown seats Black, the window scraper rubbers have been replaced, also the window mechanism on the drivers door was re-made to a very good standard, chrome effect window surrounds replaced. New battery will be required, it does start run and drive, but brakes will need attention, and the engine would benefit from a tune up.


    There are a pair of rear arches that also come with the car, as well as any spares i can find. i can help with delivery at buyers cost if collection is not possible, although this needs some attention, it has lots of potential! quite a rare beast here in the U.K, car is being dry stored at present in the Essex area near to Chelmsford. Viewing And Sensible offers welcome.
    Genuine reason for sale, please pm me with any questions.
