Volvo 960 Estate 16v '92
 
Hi, my name is Gerrit and i'm new on Turbobricks.

Recently i have purchased a Volvo 960 Estate with the B204FT Engine in it.

The plan is to get the car as good as new, or a little beter then new. :-P

Here is the beauty:

Hope you all like it too!

It looks like you have a great candidate to make it be just like new. I hope the underside and interior are as clean as the exterior.

Nice, that’s a rare find.

I like that you're towing it with a G van

The underside is also nice, interior has it's age...

a turbo 960 is a rare beast, especially a 2 litre. originally from Italy?

Hi Gerrit,
Very nice! Manual or automatic? To shift the M46 for a M90 L2 is a real treat. So much nicer in every way. Black leather interior? How many owners before you? How many km? In terms of corrosion it shows that these cars started there life in sunny Italy. Did you imported it yourself? My 960 (B204FT - sedan '93) is an Italian import too. Good luck with your project!

Both are M46 manual shifted :cool:
I've heard of the M90 conversion, friend of mine did it already.
So now i've got 3 M46 gearboxes, going to use these first!

I'm importing the car from the Netherlands, where the second owner drove it for years.
Still going through some import related nonsense :wtf:

No black interior but light grey in the white. The grey "had" black leathers.
They are now on my workbench :) needs some repair

oops

Nice looking estate. It was quite a ride for the model, starting out as a slightly more prestigious version of 940 to practically being the RWD sister of 850 in the end.
