As yet another thing falls off my not really by choice Commodore, I am finding myself looking at getting another Volvo again.
I found a 1989 740 GL online recently, and it started at 1600, and has been going down by $200 every fortnight or so. It has 190 000 km on it. Gunmetal grey, grey velour trim, and has had a stack of maintenance done on it.
It ended on eBay yesterday, and I just emailed old mate to ask a few questions.

One of my concerns is that it's in Ballarat, which is a decent hike from old Canberra town.
Being the owner of only 140s, 240s and a 440, I am unfamiliar with the things to look for in a 740. I know the engine and driveline is much the same as a 240 on these 1980s 740s, but what else do I need to know?
