So this is what $600 will get you, 93' 940 n/a, 175k, regina, L block and AW71L .... yes i have evil plans for this once i get it all street legal.

problems ... drivers door caved in and door handle broken(in the pics is AFTER i hammered most of it out and installed a spare handle)

Needed a Battery, had a bad water pump(top seal blown out), and has no title(1-2 months worth of headache but worth it)

This will be my new DD in about 1-2 months once i get new tires along with the title and get it past smog, that way i can take the 91' off the road and do some fun stuff.

So now I own 4 volvo's, 3 of which are n/a regina cars ... hm

New crank sensor in, New water pump on and holding coolant, looks like the cam seal leaks really bad so i guess i need to change the valve cover gasket and the cam seal before i can take it to the DMV to get it checked

oh and off the 8 speakers in the car only the two on the dash work ... doh

Has the head unit been replaced? If it has, it may not have the correct harness to the stock amp. The head unit only powers the dash speakers.

That's a great deal! Wish we had trash cans and cardboard strong enough to support our Volvos, here in NY. We have to use jack stands. :(

Nice ride, man. Hmm I didn't know they made a rubber trunk mat for sedans.

well so far I have also replaced the leaking front cam seal, all 8 valve silencers, valve cover gasket and swapped out the M cam for a T cam. Along with replaced the soon to fail timing belt tensioner. Due to my being to lazy to setup the Intermediate shaft right I just went ahead and threw on a Head mounted dizzy and some old wires for now as the dizzy on the block really needs a new rotor and to have the timing set right haha

otherwise, runs pretty good, shifts through all 4 gears(have not tried the lockup yet). stops really really well. Just needs tires, check the brakes, and figure out why the drivers window will not go down(i think it might be because of the trashed door but we shall see.)

A/C is ice cold and heat is nice and hot.

haha yeah they do, want mine from my 93 944? :-D

anyways, nice find for $600. rex regina ftl (i have the same setup), but i'm sure you have something crazy up for your sleeve for this car in the future.

timing is non adjustable :slap:

not a bad deal, looks the damage is confined to the one door, always a plus.

So whats with the levitating 740 in the background?

Ok so this AM i fixed the drivers window from not going down, and got the block mounted dizzy hooked back up

Now i just need to figure out how to replace the bracket for the RPM sensor w/o pulling the trans .... hm

I don't think that is possible...:-( What is wrong with the current bracket?

Nice find Mike. That's the same color of my wagon, it'll look gawwwwdgeous after some time spent detailing the paint.

its not, the current threads for the rpm sensor are stripped out .. enough that it will not get tight but it does hold in place, so i will need to figure out some kind of for sure to hold it in place until i can get around to pulling either the trans or the engine
