It is in daily use so the current genuine mileage of 64496
The MOT (Covid extended) expires on October 6th.
The main reason I am selling the car is that the clutch
pedal randomly sticks at the floor, usually when queuing in traffic. You can
pull it back up with your foot easily and carry on. some suggest master
cylinder, some slave. First thing in a morning it can be stiff to get in gear
when you first pull off, I have read it maybe a shaft / grease lubrication
Overall, its fine on a run.
It also has a bizarre occasional electrical fault, particularly
when it’s been on a run in warm weather. The dials and some of the electrics
give up but the car still runs. It sometimes cuts out but after pulling up it
Somebody scuffed the back bumper in a car park and beggared
off, I have not tried to polish it out.
A Charlie at the hand car wash blasted the petrol filler
door off, I have the door with a new bracket and spring, just haven’t tried to
The driver info message thingy says the air bag system needs
servicing, not to be confused with the airbag light, they are functioning
correctly, the check light comes on and off as it should.
The cruise control apparently need a clutch position sensor
to work, a quick job, not difficult or dear.
The aircon does not blow cold.
The exhaust requires a back box for its next MOT I think.
I do not know if or when the cambelt has been changed.
The two front tyres have meat on them, the rears whilst
older do too but one has a slow leak.
On the plus side its powerful comfortable, makes you feel
safe and looks well for an old girl.
I have been fully honest with its faults so I am selling it
sold as seen, no returns. Please come and inspect it. If you wish to drive it,
please bring proof of licence, insurance etc.
My young son adores it and will sorely miss it. It would be
very easy to scrap it, but we hope somebody can make it live on, if not whole
maybe its engine, maybe an enthusiast as its still solid.
Lastly it was almost a world record holder, lol. We took
part in the world’s largest gathering of Volvo's at Bruntingthorpe last year
although due to the gaps in the procession Guinness rejected it. Plonkers!
Inspection and questions welcome.Make me an offer, cash on collection or bank transfer,
thanks for looking.
