1991 960 Estate 3.0 litre, 24 valve all aluminium petrol motor, auto. - the 'Rolls Royce of Volvos' CRACKED BLOCK SO IT HAS TO GO TO SOMEONE ELSE TO CARE FOR. Much too nice to scrap and we are gutted but are trying to move house and have no facilities or skills. Drives like a dream but loses water so not driven since diagnosed and car is at main dealers FRF in Swansea where it was bought and serviced throughout it's life. Will drive onto transporter if needed. Just 30 years old, 140,000 miles only. MOT January 2022. Full dealer service history. Most history file, handbook, sales literature etc. Only second owner 5 years, first owner from new to 2016. Gold metallic, full leather. 5 original alloys. Steel electric sunshine roof [sealed shut with 'cassette' lug broken, but spare glass roof and complete installation cassette etc acquired from breaker but not tested or fitted yet]. Originally fitted tow-bar with full electrics, but tow-bar not with car when bought, but we have a replacement from a breaker not tested or fitted yet. Also bought some roof bars - but car not originally fitted with them so no holes in roof. These parts are included. Appearance and condition generally good, bonnet needs painting as surface crazed for some reason, one replacement mirror is black not gold but electric controls work, minor touch ups to paint would be beneficial. Minor equipment niggles such as aerial electric deploy defunct but radio with cassette still works OK, driver's seat rake adjust motor kicks in but mechanism jammed, bits of interior trim fallen off but saved etc etc with car. Insurance written off twice since our ownership due to 3rd party assaults costing more than the value of the car. First was a upvc plank flying off a merchant's truck and cosmetic damage to front of car. Second was a hit and run driver [but caught] who drove into the front offside wheel when parked damaging the steering and mirror [hence black mirror] - new steering rack and column I think - anyhow all repairs done by FRF. Car is now SORNED and insurance cancelled and FRF would like it moved as soon as possible but not nagging - yet.
