In the years I have owned my 81 242 Turbo, my initial urge to improve it to be just as refined, comfortable, and advanced as most modern cars has eventually turned into a small obsession with Genuine Volvo Accessories. As I have time I will attempt to catalog some of them here.
The accessories availabe varied widely based on year and country. The best selection was of course in Sweden itself, with comparatively few items availabe in the US.
Next to none of these are still availabe. I have provided part numbers as a reference, but do not expect your local dealer to be able to look up these parts. Careful scouring of local parts swaps and junkyards may net you a few interesting items, but the bulk of these have a long since disappeared into landfills and the garages of collectors.
Of course if you have anything interesting for me, feel free to email me at the address above, I am always looking to expand my collection.
