The highly successful Volvo 760 GLE was developed and expanded to give birth to the Volvo 740 in 1984, with the model providing a 4-cylinder alternative to the 760. The estate car version of the 740 was introduced in 1985 and was a long-awaited expansion of the range during which time no less than 1,430,000 examples of the Saloon and Estate were produced. The Volvo 740 Estate car owed its immense success primarily to factors such as its sheer reliability and renowned safety levels. However, what probably made the Volvo 740 Estate car one of the most sought-after cars in its segment was its unparalleled interior space and load capacity and found instant popularity among all manner of motorists from the Scandinavian police to British antique dealers. The 700 series was ultimately replaced by the 900 one, but good 740s and 760s are still sought after.
Finished in Red with Grey cloth upholstery, ‘G615 HUA’ has had just three former keepers and covered a modest 60,500 miles from new. Wonderfully evocative of the 1980s but more than able to keep up with modern traffic thanks to its turbocharged engine and five-speed manual gearbox, this smart looking Volvo is offered for sale with its original owner’s wallet (including service book), numerous invoices and assorted old MOTs plus a current ‘no advisories’ certificate valid until August 2024. Said to have ‘Excellent’ paintwork and fitted with the optional electric pack (sunroof and windows) that are said to all work well.
PLEASE NOTE: The estimate on this lot has been lowered to £6,000 - £8,000
