  • 1992 Volvo 940 Eurosport Sedan for sale

    The culmination of my 11 year project to "continuously improve" one of the last RWD Volvos. This 92 rust free chassis has the complete drivetrain transferred from a 94 940 Turbo Wagon; the instrument cluster from the donor is also installed and reflects actual drivetrain mileage of 151K miles. This sedan has been upgraded with "the best of the best" that Volvo offered in the 9 series line. The vehicle has never been in the salt, and the vehicle was purchased new in Chattanooga TN. I have a title history search which validates that I am the 4th owner.

    The vehicle was professionally repainted in Volvo Polar White, with 2 tone pin striping as well as a new windshield in early 2019. The sedan sits on MSW 16" wheels and TOYO Proxes 4 tires, the latter with less than 10K miles. An optional rear spoiler with 3rd brake light has been added, and a new sunroof NOS seal kit installed. European non-fog E-codes were rebuilt and retrofitted (replacing poor quality DOT lights), and HELLA fog lights added using an Volvo factory wiring harness & relay kit. All 940 badges were stripped from the car, and a one year only S90 trunk lid was added (the sole exception still in original paint). Rear tails were upgraded to 960 versions; the rear cargo area is fitted with a VOLVO cargo liner. European side turning indicators have been added and properly integrated into the wiring harness. The body was gone over by the Dent Doctor, and is very straight (save a single dent he missed on pass. front fender dogleg). A one year only 95 black non-fog grille has been added. An NOS factory power antennae has also been installed.

    The drivetrain retains the legendary & reliable 94 redblock B230FT squirter engine, and the matching AW71 automatic trans. The engine has a rebuilt 530 head with new valves, springs, retainers, .010" machined and turbo valve job by GOZA Machine. A B21F intake, converted to EFI by NIW Motoring handles the air and fuel delivery (estimated at 10~15 HP increase). New Bosch S60R injectors are installed, along with a new Bosch IAC valve. The 8V OHC head is fitted with the IPD Turbo cam. Exhaust gases exit via a 90+ manifold, ported to STEALTHfti standards. The turbocharger is a MITSU 19T conversion kit to the TD04 family, from ARD Tuning. The spent gases depart in a custom 3 inch downpipe, with flex pipe and high flow 3 inch CAT. The remainder of the "cat back" exhaust system is 2.5 inch IPD TME Sweden in stainless steel. Incoming air flows are measured by a 3" 012 BOSCH AMM; all cold side and hot side charge pipes & hoses are 3 inch "Big Pipes" by do88.se. The FMIC is also by do88.se, and far exceeds the VOLVO factory intercooler. Boost pressure is currently set to 16psi by a Hallman boost control. The starter is a factory BOSCH rebuild with approx. 23K miles. Engine management is handled by an LH2.4 984 ECU with custom chip to match the modifications (WOT AFRs are 11.5, ideal for a turbo engine). The spark is handled by the BOSCH Goldbox EZK, modifed with BuchaSpark wasted spark system & new BOSCH motorsport coil. The engine torque reaches the 95 1041 rear end fitted with 4.10 final gearing and Dana Pow-R-Lok LSD.

    The suspension has likewise been upgraded to adjustable coilovers at all positions, from Kaplhenke Racing LLC. Front springs are 250 lb/in, and the rears 175 lb/in. KONI Sport dampers are installed at all corners. The front sway is an IPD 25mm gold bar, the rear a factory Volvo 940 wagon bar. The front suspension LCAs were just upgraded to the latest aluminum versions, and the control radius "stay rods" were just fitted with 396mm NOS versions to maximize caster. An IPD lower chassis brace has been installed, as well as 960 crossmember braces.

    Braking systems have also been optimized, upgrading the servo booster to the best 95 version as well as the pedal assembly, so to maximize braking feel. Front rotors have been upgraded to 302mm European versions from Zimmermann, the largest rotor that will fit within a 16 inch wheel. Front calipers are 850 versions and use factory upgrade mountings from SKANDIX Germany. Ceramic brake pads are by AKEBONO. Rear calipers are stock, and Zimmerman cross drilled rotors are again used. All 4 wheels use stainless steel teflon brake hoses.

    There is much, much more that I have complete records of but won't list here. Serious inquiries will be provided with the link to the build thread for this vehicle, as well as a complete spreadsheet documenting the total expenditure and all components used to build this sedan (I have receipts north of $15K, and that excludes all "stage zero maintenance" which of course is complete). The AC system has been completely replaced with new parts, with the exception of the evaporator; conversion to R134a is complete.

    Yes, this 1992 Swedish sedan is expensive..... but as I've stated you couldn't build this car for $15K. Just check recent auctions on BringATrailer.... these RWD Swedish tractors are increasing in value each year.

    Finally - no trades, no help needed selling, no out of the lower48 state buyers need apply, no agents needed. I know this sedan will take a while to sell, and I'm in no hurry. The right buyer will know what I've got......... asking $10, 800. I've got my sedan posted on CL here locally (North of Atlanta), so I will link that listing rather than posting all the pictures again.
