1975 Volvo 244 DL 2.1 CARB
Retro Head Turning Tank!!!
Stromberg carb faults.
Welding required (But she is 32 years old!!!)
Bought this car as a non runner requiring some welding for £77!!!
Spent last summer welding and spraying, she looks great now.
Traced non running to cam belt which had skipped 3 teeth!!! - Non interference engine, so no damage. New cam belt on and she fired into life!!!
Stromberg carb is rubbish and needs keeping an eye on.
Body panels are tricky to get, mechanicals no problem.
This car is a true testament of the durability of older Volvo's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
