EXTERIOR
Finished in classic Petrol Blue, (Code 232), this family owned and very low mileage example boasts a glorious deep uniform shine. Volvo paintwork from this era was famous for its multi-layer treatment and this example is certainly no exception with a polished mirror finish. All body panels have uniform shut lines and some remedial cosmetic repairs have been carried out to the front lower valance. All protective mouldings and rubber trim is free from damage are the lights and badges. All glass is etched with the Volvo logo and still attached are the Volvo radio code stickers. The bumpers are fully intact with bright chrome trim and some very light scratches barely worthy of mention. Volvo branded supplying dealer number plates and tax disc holder are still fitted. Door and boot shuts are very clean. A fantastic car that further cemented Volvo’s reputation for safety and build quality but is now a model virtually extinct.

INTERIOR
The interior of this 340 is a retro delight! Finished in Grey Tweed, (Code 6923), the seats and overall interior condition reflect that of a low mileage and cherished example. The front orthopaedic seats are heated and offer wonderful armchair comfort. The carpets have been protected by dealer fit Volvo rubber floortrays in the front and rear. The impact absorbing headlining is tight and free from marks and discolouration. All switchgear, gauges and dash warning lights function correctly. The standard Volvo VC 608 stereo radio cassette is operational although the display is partially distorted. A supremely comfortable and functional 340 interior promoting a pleasant and safe driving environment.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The B14.4E (economy) engine of 1397cc produces 69bhp and 106Nm of torque and upholds the reputation of bullet proof reliability. With electronic ignition mapping the microprocessor constantly scans its memory bank of 2048 possible timing points and matches timing precisely to the engines operating conditions giving improved efficiency and responsive performance. The immaculate engine bay display factory plates and labels and the spare wheel is mounted to the inner wing and still wears the factory fitted Dunlop SP6 tyre! The 5-speed manual gearbox is light yet sturdy.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 13” steel wheels have genuine Volvo hubcaps and are in very good condition. Matching brand 155/80 R13 tyres have ample tread. A dual-circuit servo-assisted brake system with discs up front bring the car to a straight and steady halt. An additional high level rear brake light is fitted as standard as you would expect from safety-conscious Volvo!

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Main Dealers F.R.F Volvo in Swansea, a dealership who are still in business today, the car was registered new on the 12th January 1990. This wonderful 340 has covered just 22,241 miles from new in the ownership of three generations of one family. KGF Classic Cars are delighted to have purchased this example from Mr Atkins whose Grandfather purchased the car new before it was passed to his Son and then Grandson. A letter from Mr Atkins, (Grandson and keen Volvo Club Member), confirms the ownership history and that the car has always been garaged. Remarkably the ultra-rare and near impossible to replace genuine Volvo accessory All-round collapsable storage box, first aid cushion and floortrays have been passed down and kept by the owners. Even better is the ‘Volvo Lifetime Care…..For Permanent Peace of Mind’ cassette supplied to the first owner on handover that has been kept and still in its cassette box!

The Volvo document wallet holds the handbooks and spare keys complete with F.R.F Volvo fob. A folder holds comprehensive MOT records dating back to 1995 as well as invoices and receipts. Completing the history file are brochures for the 340/360 range and accessories and a 1989 Volvo range brochure and price list. A service was carried out in April 2024 at 22,241 miles. Next stop, the Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional and retro outings!
