It doesn't actually say it's a 240, right? That sounds very much like a 760 Turbo (since it says ABS and 2.3L Turbo), and since it's an '84, it's got the B23FT which is one of the most desirable and rare turbo engines. Unlike the early B230FT's in the 700 series, the B23FT has a forged crank and forged rods. It's also got 2.3L of displacement and 8.7:1 compression, which makes it better than the B21FT found in the 240 (only 2.1L and 7.5:1 CR).<P>Unfortunately, it's probably just a bunch of mistakes since "GLT" goes with 240, not 760, and ABS wasn't available on any 240 until about 1991 (not sure when the 700's got ABS). Too bad the VIN wasn't included, because I know that "YV1A..." is a 240. However, an original owner turbo would be kind of nice.<P>FWIW, the B23FT is not only very strong, but it also uses a distributor mounted on the block so it's ideal for swapping into a 240.<P>

Hmmm, come to think of it, I just checked, it is listed as a Volvo GLT, and I assumed (or it was late <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> ) that this meant 240. If interested, call ahead as I'm not sure what this car is. However, I've noticed there is a commonality to incorrect information ex. I am looking at several 90 or older 240s that are claimed to have dual airbags and ABS.
