On October 13 2012 I visited the Volvo Klassieker Beurs (aka: Volvobeurs), which is the yearly Volvo classic car event in The Netherlands, organised by the Dutch Volvo Club (in Dutch: Volvo Klassieker Vereniging). The event takes 2 days (October 13 and October 14) and was this year in Nieuwegein at the Home Boxx expo, where it was held for the first time. Unfortunately the parking lot wasn't a private parking, resulting in a mix of several cars: each year the parking lot is sorted by the type of Volvo classic car which results in only the same cars standing next to eachother.
This video shows a very typical early 80s car: a brown Volvo 245 DL estate. The Volvo 245 is the stationcar version of the 240. The last number indicates the number of doors: a 242 is a Volvo 200-series with 4 cylinder engine and 2 doors, the 244 is a 4-cylinder with 4-door and the 245 has 5 doors. Note: the diesels (with Volkswagen D24 engine) aren't called 264 and 265 since the 244 and 245 diesel are less luxuous than the 260-series.
Please visit http://www.volvotips.com for all info about the Volvo PV, Amazon, P1800, 240 and 260-series, 740, 760 and 780, 900-series and 850.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The innovative and new for 1987 2.3 litre naturally aspirated 4 cylinder engine performs faultlessly, providing effortless and whisper quiet performance. This cleaner engine features Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Pulsair emission control allowing unleaded fuel to be used. The car starts immediately on the manual choke and pulls well through the smooth and tight 5 speed gearbox. The incredible service history of this car is evident in its performance, having been serviced every 6 months from new by Volvo main dealers regardless of mileage. Amazing.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 14" steel wheels have genuine Volvo trim covers and are shod in Michelin MX 175 R14 rear tyres and new fronts ready to complete many more miles of safe motoring. Triangle split, dual-circuit brake system and stepped bore master cylinder accompanies power assisted disc brakes all round, bringing the car to a straight and steady halt. An additional high level rear brake light accompanies the comprehensive braking system you would expect from Volvo.

The original New Car Sales Invoice reveals a total price paid of £10,174.44. This car has been maintained extensively and regardless of cost by Volvo Main Dealers, primarily Squire Furneaux of Hersham, Surrey. The service history and treatment this car has been subjected to is simply incredible, with all invoices and receipts retained by the original owner. Having been subjected to 6 monthly service intervals, the original service book has long been filled, but is present in the file along with all subsequent service documentation which have been numbered and logged by the owner for ease of reference.

The 760 became the car that actually saved Volvo Car Corporation back then and paved the way to the modern company of today.
