Volvo 740 GLE
The Volvo 740 GLE is the car of my girlfriend. The car is produced in 1990 and is the first version of the Alter 2 740, which has the front, front fenders and hood of the 760 and 940 and new rear lights but not the new dashboard yet (the new dash is introduced in modelyear 1991). The engine is a B230F and the 740 has a AW71L automatic gearbox.
It’s a fantastic car to drive and has a lot of options:
– green metallic paint
– green velours upholstery
– airconditioning (Deltamil)
– cruise control
– electric sunroof
– electric windows
– electric mirrors
– Hydra 16-inch alloy wheels
– AW71L automatic gearbox
– chrome trims
– the very rare pencil box
– original digital temperature meter in the instrument panel
– original armrest with four cupholders
– 940 front (with foglights) since the original Alter 2 lights are pretty hard to get, so this was a better (and nicer) option.
The car is pretty economic with 8,5-9L/100km fuel consumption, not bad at all! The complete service history is included and the 740 has a mileage of 275.000km but the instrument cluster has been changed to an other cluster because it was broken and changed to a secondhand which has a mileage of 315.000km (the old instrument cluster was included when we bought the car).

The phase 2 version of the Volvo 740 looks pretty much as the 940, especially when the headlights are changed to the 760/940-version (note: the 940 in the USA came with the 740 alter2-lights)

The rear lights of the Volvo 740 sedan were also changed and improved the look of the car a lot!
The front of the Volvo 740 GLE. The headlights are of the European 940 and the car has white indicator lights. Also a Turbo-grille of a 940 is installed
I really like the extra chrome trims on the car
