Description for Volvo 760 1985

Selling a rather fun/unique car. Started off as a bone stock 1985 blue volvo 760 DL, and then had a Mustang Cobra 5.0 and an AOD trans installed in its place. The diesels are perfect for this swap as everything on the car is heavy duty- suspension, steering, brakes, etc etc. Weight difference between the diesel and the v8 is almost negligible, so the car still sits and handles as intended.
When I got the car it needed some wiring work and a new transmission. I sourced a used trans with 86k on it- at that time I also installed a brand new valve body with a stage 1 shift kit. Shifts through all the gears. I'm unsure of the mileage on the engine, but it runs like a top nor does it leak any fluids.
It's currently registered/inspected/insured.
Mods:
GT40 intake manifold
2.5" custome header back exhaust
IPD swaybarstokio blue shocks in the rear
*car sounds like it has a cam, but I can't confirm nor deny that

Issues- it's a 31 year old car, so it's not perfect by any means. The headliner is sagging, the clock stopped working (all other gauges work), heated seats don't work (I believe it's just the fuse, haven't really bothered to investigate), it's missing a couple plastic trim pieces, the heater occasionally doesn't want to work, and it's got some rust in the trunk (nothing structural). None of that will matter when you floor it and instantly light up the tires.
