Exclamation My 76k mile $300 240

This is what 300 bucks looks like in Volvo world. Bought it from a friend of a friend. Previous owner was the grandson of the original owner. 1 family car since new, but sat neglected since 2012. Gonna be my new daily in a few weeks. Clean as hell body, no rust through anywhere.

Biggest problems are that the car runs but needs retimed, the front splitter wants a divorce from the front end, and the hood is focked. Gonna flush the gas, do the brakes over, new timing belt and go from there. Could always be a parts car for my silver 240. Gonna be a very budget build if I don't part it out by then. Stay tuned. Better pics to come.
