Perhaps gearnob and overdrive switch still missing. If anybody has got one please let me know...
Are you after one of those roof racks? I have a 145 one which I assume is the same but missing the wooden slacks. Needs reconditioning.

My word! That engine looks far too nice to put in a car, I'd be keeping it on the coffee table!

Hi folks! The 245 L is almost ready! Planning to have it ready for the Italian 245 meet on the 26tht of June at the European Volvo Sanctuary called ďVolvogradĒ (Near Biella, Piedmont).
Under the dashboard electric was a mess. Whoever worked on the car didnít have a clue of what was doing. cables have been mixed up with more recent 92/93 electric scheme, making a complete disaster and very hard to trace every single connection.
We had to make a dramatic decision and replace all the electric system under the dash!!! And built it back to to original 1975 electric scheme.
Incredible and time consuming job done by Marco.
I would have not been able to do it by myself and this would have kept the car off road for a very long time.

A few more issues to fix before putting the last pieces back together: main puzzle to solve is the overdrive. will it work? Will the new electric engage the overdrive?
While installing the windscreen back accidentally paint has been damaged: car needs to go back to bodyshop: will they manage to do the job in time?
Mot next week. Underneath everything has been replaced, shocks, springs, bushing, disks, pads, callipers, brake lines. I am expecting to pass it flying colours.

Hopefully in a few weeks I ll be able to show the car! Almost 2 years since the car was found and put into restoration...
