1992 Volvo 960, Charleston, SC - For Sale, 200k , $1000

Album with pictures here, additional ones available upon request.


Three owner car, owned by us since early 2008 and currently at 201,xxx miles. It spent 1991-2008 in the Seattle area, since then in Texas and Charleston, SC where it has consistently been garaged or covered with aw custom fitted car cover when driven to work. The car is in excellent cosmetic condition with the driver's seat leather remade, elsewhere conditioned with Leatherique, and numerous interior plastics replaced. Everything works as intended and the biggest cosmetic flaw is peeling clear coat on the driver's side rear view mirror. It looks better than most cars 20 years younger.

Mechanically the car has been well maintained, however the head gasket has developed an external leak at the rear of the engine. It currently runs and drives well, however it does leak coolant. Compression was measured at 195PSI +/-5 on all cylinders recently with no signs of coolant intrusion into the combustion chamber. Excellent candidate for repair or other engine swap project because it would be extremely difficult to find a similar car this clean.

Major maintenance / upgrades performed recently are

Nivomat to Shock conversion with IPD kit
All engine area vacuum and coolant lines replaced
Entire PCV / air-oil separation rubber and hard parts replaced
All suspension rubber and struts replaced, then an alignment performed
New muffler installed
Timing belt maintenance last performed at 188K miles
New Volvo A/C compressor, dryer, orifice tube installed, system converted to 134a
Lighted window switches installed from newer 940
Ceramic tint professionally installed
Two layer sound deadening installed throughout the entire interior and trunk, the car is extremely quiet
Entire interior stripped for cleaning and damaged plastics replaced with new where available
Driver's seat leather remanufactured in matching original tan color, other seats and front seat armrest redyed with Leatherique
Transmission replaced at 188K with one with 138K miles
New Volvo PNP switch
Radiator replaced
New Hirschmann antenna mast installed
New parking brake cables installed
New rear brake rotors, all pads have plenty of life left
New right side CV joint and right rear wheel bearing
