At some point the during the T5 transmission upgrade, the costs and the delays got me down. Having tried to sell the car for $3,500 last fall with no success, the decision was made to part it out. During the process I met a lot of great people and am delighted that the parts will be enjoyed my fellow enthusiasts. The primary reason the car did not sell as a whole, despite the upgraded bolt-on parts, was the shells old collision damage and rust. The heart of the 245 is going into a true "survivor."

Made a start today. The car had been little used for the last +/- 10 years. Fasteners are rusty, cobwebs plentiful. A bit of a time capsule. I delighted to have this opportunity.

Just a 740 insert, zip-tied in a 240 shell. At some point "part-out fatigue" sets in ("Hey, thanks for sending me 17 more photos of that rare, left-handed, Volvo widget you have listed for $100, would you take $16 and ship it to Timbuktu?") and we call good enough, "good enough." Couldn't sell her as a driver for $3,500 / not deducting for shipping, netted $8,500 re-homing parts to other enthusiasts. Hoping to have the blue 242 running in the next few days.

Carl's wagon was a solid 20 footer at the right angles. It had seen better days for sure. Some of the trim was held in with sheet metal screws, PO things that were just straight hackery.

I love how much hate Carl is getting over the 740 grill hack

Nice. That reminds me of my stunt where I once parked 2 cars in a 1.5 car garage just to see if it could be done... wonder if I have a picture.

Got the LH wiring through the firewall to the computer. Tidied up some things.




3" down pipe in. Just need to take 2-3"out of the mid pipe.




Tidy, tidy.
