This is a 1992 Volvo 740 that we (Yoshifab) used to develop a LS1/Gen3 V8 conversion kit. All work was performed about a year ago and the car has only done maybe 1000~1500miles in that time.
1992 740 wagon
1999 LS1 with 101000 miles on it. Motor runs smooth and strong.
1999 T56 with the same mileage, shifts into all gears smoother than any other t56 I have driven
Yoshifab Gen 3 V8 mount kit
Custom drive shaft
GM LS7 Clutch/Flywheel (1000 or so miles on it)
C6 exhaust manifolds
LS6 intake manifold
4" intake pipe/K&N filter
Pro 5.0 Shifter
Custom 3" exhaust (sounds very nice, just enough rumble to let you know its a v8 but nothing crazy) Nobody even seems to look twice when you roll through a parking lot.)
Yoshifab rear subframe reinforcement kit
G80 locking differential
AC compressor replaced this week
Goodyear tires have about 1000 miles (well lets say 2000 miles after the burnout pic) on them. Just have the fuzzies worn off.
Accessory belts and pullies are all about 1000 miles old
The beauty of this car is the overall condition. It is not perfect but much nicer than your average Volvo of this vintage. Paint is still in very good shape but a few shopping cart kinda dings. It has been very well maintained, all the suspension and steering is tight and the breaks work well. The car runs and drives totally normal, my wife has no issue stepping out of her new Corolla and driving this to the store. It has working ac, good road manners, and a very smooth ride. The idea is a car that drives like a normal Volvo wagon but with a lot more zip. It works quite well. The car was a diesel in a previous life and the CA title still reflects that. Shipping can be arranged but buyer will be 100% responsible for shipping costs. Last Volvo I shipped went cross country for around $800

For the 2014 model year, the Volvo product line is shrinking to just five models in the United States: the S60, S80, XC60, XC70 and XC90. This comes following the death of the C30 hatchback and C70 convertible, which are being discontinued after the 2013 model year. The S40 sedan and V50 wagon were axed two years ago, as was the larger V70.

That may not be the case, however. According to Automotive News, Volvo is rethinking its decision to not sell the V60 wagon, pictured, in the United States. The automaker had originally decided to not offer the V60 in our market due to declining American wagon sales. A decision is expected to be made sometime in the next quarter, and if approved, sales of the V60 could begin in the US within the next year.
At the Geneva Motor Show last week, Volvo showed off refreshed versions of nearly every vehicle in its lineup. In the US, these will be the only changes coming to the Volvo brand over the next two years. The next big product launch in the States will be the all-new XC90 crossover, developed under new parent company Geely. The range-topping SUV will ride on the company's new flexible SPA platform, which will also underpin the next-generation versions of the S60, S80 and XC60.
Volvo is furthering its deep ties in China by announcing a major expansion to its factory in Daqing that will equip the site to build its future S90 sedan. The automaker is promising to make the plant, "one of the most advanced car making facilities in China," according to its press release. Unfortunately, the company isn't specifying the amount being invested or how long the work will take.

Because the northeastern Chinese city of Daqing owns about 37 percent of the automaker, the location for the significant expansion isn't entirely surprising, especially since Geely owns a majority stake in the Swedish brand. The existing factory there employs about 700 people to build the original XC90 for the local market, but the upgrades will allow the plant to handle Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture modular platform.
To be fair, Volvo doesn't specifically call out the S80-replacing S90 by name in its announcement. However, it promises the first vehicle built in Daqing after the expansion will be a new premium sedan, and the upgrades will allow the plant to make "most innovative vehicles in its product range," and the range-topping sedan is widely expected to adopt the S90 moniker.
Experian, the US credit reporting agency, recently concluded a study into the financing and credit scores of US car buyers. One of the prime findings was that Volvo buyers enjoy the strongest credit scores among new car shoppers from all brands (nota bene, these are Experian's own numbers and can differ from other agencies). Unlike the Forbes report on the same story, though, we don't find that surprising at all, nor do we think it necessarily helps Volvo's upscale brand aspirations. The Gothenburg-based carmaker has sold its wares on tank-like safety for decades, so it seems natural that its buyers would be just as safe with and attentive to their credit scores as they are with their choice of vehicle.
Audi was ranked fourth by consumer credit score, Porsche seventh and Mercedes-Benz ninth, yet the fact that Volvo outranks them in this metric is probably a plus to its bottom line but not necessarily its image. It's not unfair to say more people desire those other luxury brands - Volvo itself has admitted as much - and people in the throes of desire have been known to be a little more let-it-ride about things like credit scores. The differences aren't huge, though: compared to Volvo's 818, Audi shoppers scored at 813, Mercedes shoppers 802. Lexus and Acura intenders took the other two steps on the top-credit-scores podium.
Mitsubishi took the honors at the other end of the charts, Experian finding that its potential customers, with an average of 604, had the lowest scores. Mitsubishi was followed by Suzuki and Dodge. On the other side of the financing table, Toyota led the way in how many of its vehicles were bought with bank assistance, followed closely by Ford, Chevrolet taking third place. Also of note, and for whatever it's worth, not one automaker made both the 'top ten by financing' and 'top ten by credit score' lists, but four made both the financing and 'bottom ten by credit score' lists: Chevrolet, Nissan, Kia and Dodge.
