Due to an upcoming move I am selling my 1983 fully restored 242 Turbo. This car is a multiple show winner and looks and drives great. Last big trip was to the 2011 VCOA National Event in Lindsborg, Kansas having traveled from Kansas City to Lindsborg, Kansas and winning 1st place in the 240 class. The modifications are too extensive to list in full but here are a few highlights.

Rebuilt engine, wiring harness, fuel system
Excellent Interior, fresh seat rebuild and interior parts sourced from 4 states
18" S60R wheels with custom Wheel Centric and Hub Centric Spacers - Spacers cost more than the wheels!
New 40 Series Toyo Tires
IPD Sport Spring Kit - lowered car but still rides great
Replaced Fuel Tank, Filter, Fuel Pump and Accumulator
Rear Main Seal
New Wire Harness
Manifold Gaskets
Hoses and Inlets replaced
Optima Battery
Distributor Cap, Ignition Cable set, Rotor
Complete Paint including mirrors, bumpers, Paintless dent removal where possible and metal replacement in two areas of rust. Show quality paint
Replaced Door and Rear and Dash Panels
Alpine IPOD Head Unit and Alarm System
Where needed - all Exterior and Interior Trim Parts have been sourced from "Retired" Volvo's across the midwest

This car has Won National VCOA Events in 2009 in Tulsa Oklahoma, 2010 in Kansas City and 2011 in Lindsborg, Kansas and 2009 and 2010 Won Best of Show Award for "Volvo with Attitude.
The best awards however is when we go to non-Volvo shows that include all makes of cars and we win the class with Corvette's, Mustangs, BMW's etc   It is fun to see the faces of those cars owners when a "Volvo" beats them - lol.

 Original Price - $12,500 I am now asking $10,000 which is much less than my investment.

Volvo specs new 450-hp triple-charged four-cylinder engine

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 11:33:00 EST

When Volvo lifted the veil on the new XC90 a little over a month ago, it announced that all versions would be powered by one engine design: a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder to be offered in various states of tune. That would range, Volvo said, all the way up to a high-output version with "around 400 horsepower," but while it wouldn't specify exact output, now it has.
The new High Performance Drive-E Powertrain incorporates two parallel turbochargers fed by a third electric turbo-compressor. Instead of feeding the cylinders directly, that third unit spools up the twin turbochargers, working together with a dual fuel pump pressurized to 250 bar.
The result is an output of 450 horsepower - far more than the existing 320-hp version and even more than expected. That also works out to 225 hp/liter, far more than the 177 hp/liter boasted by Mercedes-AMG's high-output turbo four and the 139 hp/liter in the Alfa Romeo 4C. Short of a rotary engine (whose actual displacement is the subject of great debate), you'd have to go up to something like the Koenigsegg One:1 (268 hp/liter) to find a higher specific output than what Volvo's boasting here.

Volvo finds a way to turn body panels into batteries [w/video]

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 16:30:00 EST

One of the problems with designing an electric vehicle is figuring out where to fit the battery pack. Volvo - as a part of a European Union research project - is working on a way around this issue by replacing standard parts with lightweight components that double as batteries on both conventional and plug-in vehicles. The image above shows one such piece on a Volvo S80. While looking like nothing more than a carbon fiber plenum cover, the piece is actually a battery pack that can store and supply enough energy for the car's entire 12-volt power system.
The parts are made by sandwiching super capacitors (which can charge faster than standard batteries) in between layers of carbon fiber. They can then be formed to replace numerous body panels such as the decklid, roof or door panels. Volvo says that the replacing the body panels and batteries with these nano batteries can help reduce the vehicle's weight by as much as 15 percent. It has taken more than three years just to design the batteries, so there's no telling when, or if, we'll ever see this technology used on a production vehicle. Scroll down for a video and press release on Volvo's innovative battery technology.

Volvo launches XC90 configurator site

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 11:00:00 EST

In many ways the 2016 Volvo XC90 defines the future of the Swedish brand. The SUV is the introduction of the company's Scalable Product Architecture modular platform that should underpin most of its future models. It's also the first big chance to see whether consumers accept a model like this that's only available with four-cylinder power, granted a mill that is both turbocharged and supercharged. The configurator for this Swedish hopeful is just hitting the Web giving customers a chance to see what they think.
The only available powertrain on the XC90 at the moment is the 2.0-liter Drive-E with 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The base price starts at $48,900, plus $925 for destination, but that number can balloon quite quickly. Upgrading to the R-Design package tacks on $4,000 or the even plusher Inscription package adds $5,600.
Furthermore, there are several option packages to add some extra tech and comfort to the SUV. The Vision Package with a backup cam is an extra $1,600, two versions of the Climate package to keep occupants warm come to $1,050 and $1,950, respectively, and the Convenience Package that includes adaptive cruise control adds $2,000. Depending on trim, there are up to 13 colors available in an attractive variety, although all but two add $550 to the price. There are also a wide variety of leather upholsteries to choose from.
