I'm new here and to Volvos in general so bear with a newcomer. :facepalm:

A guy in town is selling his '76 245 wagon. Its in almost pristine shape. Little bit of surface rust here and there but nothing major. The interior doesn't seem to have any major imperfections whatsoever and looks pretty incredible for being a 37 year old car.

According to the owner, the fuel distributor, fuel control pressure regulator, fuel accumulator, fuel filter, intake manifold gasket, power steering rack and pinion, turn signal switch, transmission line o-rings, shifter bushings and rear crankshaft seal have been changed in the 3 years that he's owned it.

The problem is that the odometer doesn't work anymore after stopping at 46,000 miles, which sort of freaks me out as well as the heater (which isn't terrible in Florida weather anyway).

He's asking $5000 but I can't even tell what a fair price is because there don't seem to be any 245's for sale anywhere online. Taking for a test drive tomorrow to see how it runs and getting a closer look under the hood.

It'll definitely be a project car but I wanna see what others think about whether its really worth it.

Thanks.

Welcome to Swedespeed, Kirk.

Offer $2,000 at most.

If you buy the car let us know and we will link some parts places and 240 fixes.

Thanks.
