My story with this car

I've been a Volvo guy since I was a child. My grandfather bought his first new Volvo around 1960 - our family has had dozens. I've owned 23 Volvos (currently 4) and a Polestar 2. I own NAPA Auto Parts stores. One of my customers is a long-time Volvo guy. At age 75 he decided to give me his 1989 780 because he knew it would be a good home for it! He is correct! The car had been sitting for about 2 years before he gave it to me. The catch was I had to pay for necessary items to get it back into running condition. It cost about $3,000 - well worth it! It is an original car inside and out. The body is in good shape - minor blemishes, the interior, not so good. The seats need reupholstering, and the dash cover is cracked. The original stereo was removed years ago - I'm trying to find one. The turbocharger (it is a 2.3 turbo car) could use rebuilding, otherwise it runs reliably and well. I love this car - never thought I would own one. It resides in my barn next to my 1980 Coupe and 1965 1800S (purchased new by my grandfather).
