Volvo is well known as some of the safest and most durable cars on the road. Their longevity makes even the older models a great choice for anyone looking to buy a used car. For older cars, replacing hard to find Volvo 245 OEM parts will keep the vehicle running longer and smoothly for years to come.

I remember reading in Car and Driver way back (early nineties?) that there was a guy doing this conversion. Good to see one survived!

This is one of only a handful of cars I've encountered where I asked the owner to let me know if they ever put it up for sale...not that I'd be allowed to buy it : )

Normally, I hate rare tin like this getting modified.....but this looks great. Love the stance.
Look at the front shot, mean as hell.

En 245 utan rostig baklucka. Det ser man inte så ofta i Sverige.

Fantastic. I'm seriously considering putting together a Converse V8 Volvo, though I'd probably lean toward a 740 or 960.

The best part about this one though? Not only a 5.0 liter, but a Cobra? Awesome. I'll be the owner has surprised his share of wanna-be street racers.

Oh, and the green house in the background is pretty cool too.

Aaw geez, the cobra engine AND the canada-headlights. Little bit of a dream for me (swedish volvo-fan)
