Re: 850...and 780

The 780 coupe was a striking car, I always wanted one. Only problem is that I have
had experience with Volvos in the worst Cleveland winters. Anyway, the 780 coupe
was available with either the 4 cyl turbo from the 740/760 series or a version of
that nasty French V6. These engines were more reliable than the origionals, they
shared the bottom end, but had a redesigned top end and injection system. I almost
never get a call for these which I believe were introduced in late 87.
