1989 Volvo 745t


I missed my 91 945t so much that when this car came up for $500 I just couldn’t resist. 273,123 miles and still runs great! Needed brakes, breather hoses, an IAC, and a thorough cleaning. Still needs a turbo and I have a larger 15g to replace the original 13t. Other upgrades include swapping the ratty tan leather interior for black cloth, 16in. wheels from my last wagon, CAI, IPD front and rear sways, and a graduated boost gauge face in the stock location. I’ve also added HID projector headlamps and 960 tails. Scored a complete 5 speed swap on a trip to the junk yard but thats not until spring. Until then, I’m turning the boost up to eleven.

Hey, cool, your given me some ideas on what to do with mine if I can afford to keep it instead of selling it. Whats the diff between a 940 and a 945?
