We found this '85 Turbo Sedan in Sherman Oaks, CA with only 79k miles on the clock.  It's so hard to let cars like this go!  '85 is the last year of the turbo.  These are really just leftover '84 production cars re-serialized and sold as '85s, according to Volvo lore.  This turbo was contracted to a gentleman in Detroit.  A little foreign iron for The Motor City.  He went nuts shopping for parts all over the world and had them shipped in for us to install.  And that's aside from the huge long list of upgrades we provided.  This very special sedan sports a flat nose hood conversion, TV screen, E-code headlights and even the very rare TV screen wipers.  Brandon, are you still out there?  Still screaming in your turbo?   

We found an early, flat nose hood and painted it to match. "TV Screen" e-code headlights from an early 260 and a narrowed 242 round-eye grill complete the facia. Then we found a headlight wiper setup to go with!

Brandon scoured the web for his grill badges.

'85 Turbos came from the factory with the intercooler setup. We added a manual boost control. Otherwise the engine bay was just maintained up to spec.
