Just picked up this 1990 760 turbo w/ 300k for $300. Maticulously serviced by one of the best Volvo shops in the area. Muffler already deleted. We plan on turning it into a drift machine.... maybe.

Nice. Inspect the independent rear suspension the control bushings tend to age poorly.

We’re really lucky because we have a four car carport, a garage, and like three spots on the street. So, I have room for more! Now, the wife is already complaining a bit even though she was the one who agreed to this purchase.

My son custom rigged the rear shocks. The previous owner put in very bouncy Sachs Advantage shocks. Performance Tokicos are ready for install.

I need the parts to finally show up so I can have another running car. Son started driving the wagon on his own. My T5 has a slight issue I think is related to a bad O2 sensor. Hoping at least since it only arose once the new dp was installed.

Got everything installed. Custom fitted the Lexus struts. Went in after some grinding and fab work. Car sits nice and rides firm. I may lower it another inch. The front Sachs struts were toast. Midirs fit perfectly with the 25mm spacers.

Installed TME lowering springs on the rear. The springs are for a p80 V70 but I got these to fit perfectly. Just one coil cut for just the right tuck in the rear.

TME springs ended up not working as they were way too soft for the 760. Replaced the stock springs and cut half a coil.
