The appearance of the car is a testament to the care and attention bestowed upon it by the only owner from new. The paintwork has a bright shine and is generally in exceptional condition. There are a few very minor scratches and touch-ups to the paintwork. These minor imperfections do not, however, detract from the overall impressive appearance of the car.

Original Volvo Dealer number plates are still fitted although the front is cracked and Volvo mud-flaps remain attached. All identification stickers are clearly visible. A beautiful car that continued Volvo’s reputation for safety, a real time warp example.

The front orthopaedic seats are heated and offer wonderful armchair comfort.

The impact absorbing headlining is tight and free from marks and discolouration. Interior and glovebox courtesy lighting is in working order and all switchgear, gauges and dash warning lights function correctly. The standard Volvo stereo radio requires coding. Supplying dealer tax disc holder and rear window sticker remain attached as do the front screen warning stickers. An impeccable and functional 340 interior promoting a pleasant and safe driving environment.
