Something tells me that it's done a lot more than 4000 odd hours.

Yes, it would be most peculiar if it hasn't done more than that.

Looks pretty clean though. Seat doesn't have the front edge worn off from use, but I hate to see a cigarette burn.
From what you could see of the inside of the body it hasn't led a hard life and everything appears pretty straight.
If you wanted one I would have thought it would be well worth a look.

If you look carefully in the background he has another one.

As how many hours that one has done because there is a good chance they have lived together

Other thing to remember is this is a A35, not a C series. So Late 1980's early 1990's? Trax will confirm... Hence the Black interior.

Looking at it it definetly has some battle scars, bonnet, wheel rims, side of the front (the tanks) Someones worked there magic with a respray!

Funny you say A30 because it looks very much like one. The reason for this is because it has LGP 750/65/25 tyres which are fitted to the A30C trucks.

It is though an A35. The last Truck of that age being an A30C I looked in had 16,000 hrs on the clock and that is low. I wouldn't expect any less than that on this truck. It looks tidy. If it has problems all spares are not now readily available. Remember this, its not new but many parts will have to be, if needed and are not cheap from Volvo.

That's interesting Trax: I hear what you're saying re the cost of parts but at that kind of money it doesn't seem too overpriced. It must be worth a fair bit as a parts bin itself: how much are a decent set of 750's at the moment?
