This 1975 Volvo 242 DL 2 door is inspired by the current US trend called pro-touring. This is where you take a older 60s-70s car mostly musclecars and update them with modern components and big wheels. This Volvo is running a fairly stock chev LS1 5.7L V8 with a Procharger superchager, T56 6 speed, and chrysler 8 3/4 inch diff making roughly 500hp

Here are some links to 2 pdf articles for you to read (hope you can read swedish for the bisport one !)

Heres a selection of great images founs on the builders website notice the 20×10 inch rear wheels, porsche brakes and stock colour paint.

And here is a complete set by set photo record of the build process. This is very inspiring considering I to own a 1979 volvo 242 gt thats fitted with a V8 and i have plans for the pro-touring look myself
