1980 Volvo 265 GLE Estate, Registration OFE 150V. This rare 2664 cc V6 engined Volvo Estate has automatic transmission and has covered 72,730 miles approximately. We have been informed that it was fully restored for the late owner by Schmidt-Gemert in Holland in recent years and is attractively finished in gold with buttoned black leather upholstery. It still appears to be in excellent condition and is supplied with V5 document. Sadly at present no other documents have been found relating to this car but should they be discovered they will be sent on to the purchaser. We are selling this car on behalf of the executors of the late Mr Paul Westcott, a classic car enthusiast who regularly used his collection. (Subject to 12% buyers premium inclusive of VAT).

Sold for £10,500

Condition Report

From the garage who undertook the restoration work...

I give you an idea of the work we did on the car.

I bought the 265 in th UK somewhere arround 2012 put it aside as it arrived in one of our warehouses.

In 2016 Paul contacted me as he heared about the exisitance of the car over a friend.

We agreed on the sale of the car to Paul.

When i got the car it was basicly in a very good and solid condition with only some really small rust issues at the rear wheel arches, and a small parking scratch.

Biggest problem was the the clear coat was faded on the hood and the roof.

Technically the car was very solid and good and just needed a good service as it was not on the road for several years.

The mileage at 71.763 was very low on a car from this age, the former owner was an old disabled man.

Regarding interior the Volvo was like new.

As Paul wished a 265 in perfect condition we agreed on the small rust issues to be done combined with an complete paint job.

Before that we did and very extensive technical service on the the car, changing all fluids, brakes, full engine service including valve adjustment, candles, air filter oil and filter, ingnition parts a candle wiring, new tyres, exhaust systeem.

We had the airconditioning system updated and a new pump installed. So also the air conditioning is working perfect.

After the piant job the car got a complete anti rust dinitrol treatment to protect it for rust in the future.

After we finished all works we had the car professionally cleaned and polished.

While essambling the 265 we replaced every single broken or damaged part so that is would be very near to perfect condition.

As an extra we mounted the alloy rims that were an original accessoiry for the 1980 265GLE

So after we finished the car was completely gone true as well technical as optical.

Seen the mileage the car has now, Paul has only used it for a few hundred mileages.

All works done were included in the sale price so i have no separate invoices mentioning all parts being changed and used, but everything neccessary to get the car in perfect condition was done.
