I'm pretty sure that cluster was for sale at Carlisle. When Rob and I were looking through the vender section, we came across a guy who had a bunch of parts out on a blue tarp. He had a couple of GT grilles, some 240/740 chrome grilles, and I know he had a 740T grille like mine so it may have been the seller you mentioned who wanted way too much for it.<P>Anyway, there was an R-Sport cluster sitting on the tarp, and I took a close look at it. The strip at the bottom was warped and wrinkled just like the one on ebay. It was also sitting in a small puddle of water on the tarp from the earlier rain that morning. Now I don't know for sure if that's the same cluster, but I know that ebay seller goes to Carlisle because I picked up his business card two years ago.<P>I'd pass on this one being sold "as-is."<P>

By the way, the cluster fits the '75-'80 dash only, but it can be put in a later ('81-'85) 240 with a little work.<P><A HREF="http://www.homestead.com/volvo2/Rsport.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.homestead.com/volvo2/Rsport.html</A><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.homestead.com/volvo2/files/R-sport5.jpg"> <P>This would not work in a '86-'93 240 unless the trans was from an '85 or older model because it needs the pick-up for a mechanical speedometer.<P>

George, my friend Chris with the GT has one of those gauge clusters...there has been some re-wiring done on it, and it doesn't work properly. I haven't had a chance to go through it and figure out what's up...but they are cool looking indeed!<P>Rob
