Pretty good webpage — especially since I've got 780 and wouldn't otherwise have achance to come across mnay others who do as well. Only negative is that it doesn't seem to have been updated for quite a long time. Or maybe I'm missing something. I must add that I have a hard time keeping up with my paying work, so am very impressed by soameone whe can put his much offort and skill into what is obviously a labour of love. Keep up the good work!

Hi
Great webside with brilliant pictures and very interesting
information.
I own a 780 B200ET directly imported from Italy and love the car,
but I have problem getting data/information together how to
convert the B200ET to B200FT. The conversion to a 3way-catalyst
version is technically not so difficult, but the registration
at the German TÜV is going to be very challenging.

So does anybody have infos how to convert the car and what emission
values does the car reach? Are the 4or5 780 owners in the Owner-list
with B200FT engines really FTs or just ETs? Can I get some more data
from them? Are there more German Owners with the same problem?

Thanks   Martin

I just bought a 1989 Volvo 780 Bertone... I love this car.
There's just one problem:

I can't figure out how to get the back seat up!!  The
seat belt buckles are trapped somewhere underneath the seat,
and I've tried EVERYTHING to move the seat up!  
I feel like an idiot!

Hello There,

I have recently become a Volvo Bertone enthusiast. I appreciate all of the information that you have managed to gather together on this one page. However, I find that the majority of it pertains to the original 262C. My father once considered purchasing one of these in 1977, but opted instead to purchase two late model 240 series Volvo's (a 242 sedan and a 240 wagon). I see very little of these 262C's, and those I have come across are in rather poor condition. How do you rank them, personally? Do you find them to be a better engineered car than the later 780's or no? I see the 780's every now and then. They are certainly more modern in appearance and appointments. Today, in fact, (August 1, 1999) I went to look at a 1989, 780 Bertone that is for sale where I live. I found its interior to be sumptuous and quite modern for a Volvo. A far cry from any of the tank-like 240's. I would like to see more information posted on these 780's if at all possible. I have learned as much as possible about the 262C. I should now like to do the same with the 780. I hope that within the next two years I will be able to become the proud owner of one of either of these fine vehicles. Until then any information you can provide me concerning the 780 would be appreciated. Especially items concerning interior appointments, options, engines, colors, and photographs of both the interior and exterior for varios model years. Thank you ever so much for your time.

Sincerely,

Jonathan R. Lichtenstein

My 10 yr old Volvo 780 has almost reached its 400K Km point.
Time for this old lad to retire for some years (waiting the great fortune I must make in order to start an indepth improvement program)
It is a beauty. Beautiful darkblue and bicolor leather.
I am considering selling my car of storing in for some years, whatever opportunity knocks first.
My q's:
- does anybody know a good garage for the car to be stored in for the next year(s)
- is anyone interested at buying the 780 at a price of 8 to 10K.
