Primary Use: Commuting to work

Best 760 — This was the 3rd 760 I owned. I was totally different from the first two. This was had a new dashboard, new front end, fancy Multilink self levelling suspension, climate control, electric seats, cruise & much more! It drove so well for a large barge of a car, was so comfy, and well equiped. I kept it for almost 3 years, I infact kept it after I had replaced it with a turbo diesel 940 estate (which died) but had left it in a garge, which came in handy as a result for the next 8 months! In fact I wish I hadn't bothered selling it at all, as the next car or 2 turned out ot be terrible!

Pros: Drove well, good performance (170bhp (pre-cat)) and very comfy for the commute

Cons: quite thirsty (22mpg)

760 Gle Which Is Pretty Rare — This is the car that i fell in love with. it's exactly what i had in mind when i went out looking to buy a Volvo, and it's everything i wanted and expected out of the the famous traits that Volvo has carried for years quality, safety, and reliability.

Pros: Solid. i got hit twice and nothing really happened but the other two cars were damaged more . she's a pretty tough car.  two out of the three inspections i had done while owning this car passed w/o needing a thing. . .which is super awesome.

Cons: Because it's rare some of the parts are really hard to find and pretty expensive (but you hardly have to fix anything).

Turbobrick, Hauls More Than Just Butt... — My 1990 Volvo 765ti (5 means wagon, t means turbo, i means intercooled) is, according to my wife, the ultimate car for me. It is a 2.3L Turbo I-4 motor (aka "redblock") with a Mitsubishi 13C turbo, factory intercooled and has the Aisin AW71 Automatic Transmission, with overdrive (no really, it has overdrive). Mods are very limited at this point: - 16" Volvo Hydra rims (from a 940 series) - AutoMeter boost gauge - AutoMeter Air/Fuel Ratio gauge - JoeP Manual Boost Controller set to 12psi

Pros: Huge, carries anything, relatively quick for its size

Cons: Huge, autotragic, only about 25mpg

Don't Buy One Unless You Know The Car's Full History. — -FOR SALE- Strong and has the power a Volvo should have. Proving not to be very expensive to maintain, although this one was well looked after by previous old man owner. Looking for Polaris wheels for it. Just got the valve's checked and spaced, sounds like a new car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Safe, reliable, cheap.

Cons: Engine must be properly looked after.

760 That Wasn't That Good By Benjamin

2nd 760! This one was bought as a quick stop gap. It was like the 1st one, but somehow not a good? Mid Met Blue & black leather didn't suit it. Had been in the south of France, and everything worked (... Read More

A Good Solid Friend By Volvita

It's a fun, smooth ride. With fuel injection boost, accelerates when you want it to. The exterior is "Volvo Classic" with a box shape, but solid handling. The fun story I like to tell is that one day... Read More
