It is not my car. I work in a taxi company where TB-97-TX drives (car '37').
It's original engine is still present... Only the second gearbox and fourth clutch. Second exhaust pipe.
OK, it's not a new car anymore (some oil leaks here and there), but it's still 100% alive. Also, the powered window (left) doesn't work, but this car (built in Belgium, Antwerp) just won't die.
I want to tell you about this car because it is unique. It really drove 1,000,000 kilometers (on gas) with ONE engine!!! And being a taxi, it means that it's abused very often.
The car is still running very good, but it started to eat clutches now and suffers more and more technical problems (including the LPG system).
But every time the newer Volvo 940s don't start, this 740GL will come to the rescue. It really is a miracle!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
