Volvo 245 Turbo
After selling my restored 740 I was able to pick up this 1983 245 Turbo. At first I didnt want to buy it, but after visiting the car at 2am because of sleeping problems it caught me like a disease. The car had a original Turbo+ kit in it, which means that it has 180hp instead of 155hp because of a Intercooler. Within 1 day I had sold the 740 and bought the Turbo. Me and my dad transported it to our garage, inspected the car a little bit and then we went for a drive.

In the pictures below you can clearly see the Turbos main problem - Rust.... lots of it

All gauges work, but the speedometer wobbles when driving under 50km/h, so I will replace the drive gear later on

It is a original sunroof car, but with a electric BMW Glassroof fitted, its so nice and works like it should.

When inspecting the car we have found loads of rust. Not all was visible right away because of a patch up job with fiberglass by a previous owner. I didnt photograph all of the rust.
Brace yourself!

Rust bubbling near the sunroof

A previous owner tried to treat some of the rust
