Team Raebird Empire Mysterybox Car
So the story goes @14JEZ & I participated in the Mysterybox Rally (Not actual rallying) in 2019, in his 240 wagon “Ron”. My wife was pissed at me because she wanted to do it with me, Jared and I had an unforgettable time so I decided to participate in this years Mysterybox with her. Put the feelers out for a Volvo on Facebook and was offered a couple of excellent candidates, but one in particular took my fancy, a 1986 740 Turbo Sedan! Went and looked at it, agreed on a price and picked it up the following weekend. Plans are make it start and run, make it reliable, then lift the suspension & fit some all terrain tyres!
Got it home & have it a wash (scrubs up alright!).
Put some fuel in it and got it running, replaced an in tank fuel pump (no photos cause I’m good like that).
Bought a pair of XJ Jeep front springs to raise the rear and skipped the “make it reliable“ step, went straight to completing the lift :facepalm:.
Now I need to buy some 235/75R15 all terrains to complete the lift and circle back to that reliability step.
