Volvo 740 Wagon 1990

740 Wagon
1177 miles

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this 1990 Volvo 740 Wagon restomod, packing a 383 stroker V8.

Our apologies in advance to our friends in Sweden if they are offended by the marriage of a strong running American Chevrolet V8 in one of their family cruisers. But we promise… it does the car proud! The exterior features nice quality custom paint & rims, setting it apart from your typical 740. And what a sleeper! That is, until you wing it up and stand on it- signaling it’s packing a bit more motor than it was born with.

The interior is for the most part stock appearing, with some mods to the instrument panel to keep a better eye on activity under the hood. Aftermarket air conditioning was added, and the power steering, power brakes, AM/FM/CD radio, heated leather seating, power windows & locks give this freeway blaster a touch of luxury.

The under hood conversion looks good.. simplified from it’s factory form. The low horsepower 2.3 liter 4-cylinder is long gone, replaced with a 383 stroker Chevrolet and GM’s sturdy 700R4 4-speed automatic & 4:11 rear end gearing. Headers & Magnaflow exhaust routes all the fury to the rear- where anyone who messes with it will likely be, left shaking their heads as this rather innocent grocery-getter pulls away from them. 4 wheel disc brakes assure better braking. It is a well-mannered, for-fun vehicle with a personality ranging from tame to exciting. It’s a grin maker for sure- you can haul stuff in, show it, smoke the unsuspecting car next to you, or drive to work every day!
