17-year-old has built on a dream-a Volvo three years

Already at 15 he had seen out the perfect car number one with a 855 GLT, 1993.

With a month left to 18-the anniversary has fordonseleven turned a Volvo into a utställningsbil.

– I have set a goal to win any trophy – to get something for the effort, " says Dennis Åkerström.

On motorsajten Garage has 17-see her bold fashion ”refined” 855 GLT, 1993 garnered a lot of appreciation. Many like his ambition – to create the optimal car with the starting point of Volvo's original parts.

"I want to use the best looking Volvo had to offer in the directory – don't throw on a bunch of aftermarket kit," says Dennis Åkerström.

Here you can build your own Volvo digital, in five minutes.

Initially would a Volvo be his förstabil, but after almost three years of renovation, the project has taken a different turn.

" I bought it when I was 15. Then I wanted to have a nice car to learn to drive with, but since then it has grown up with some sort of perfectionist in me – so it has been derailed a little bit, " he says.

Right now Dennis last year at the fordonsprogrammet on Arlandagymnasiet in Märsta. Bilbyggaren have also grown up in a family where everyone is interested in engines and motorsport, so he has mekat since childhood. The project car had 40 000 km on the meter, but Dennis saw that the item had great potential. That the choice fell on a Volvo 855 was no coincidence.

" I've always liked the model best, ever since I saw it for the first time. I like that the design is so stylish already in the original. Then there is the lättmekad. We have always had a Volvo in the family, so it has become natural for me, " he says.

After he had put in a new engine that ”only” had 20 000 miles – changed the blue interior to a black, taken from a 850R. Then have Dennis become increasingly more picky. With about one month left to 18-the anniversary has the most on the Volvo that was reviewed. On the outside are visible among the other details from the 850R, V70 and XC70. Rear suspension, wishbone, styrleder and the sway bar has finished in grey, black and white. On the to-do list is to remove all underredsmassa and paint the undercarriage white.

Hope to win a prize in the summer

the Plan is to 855:an should be ready by spring, and the goal is to win at least one prize on one of the summer's hits. A volvo will never vinterköras – with a birthday in January is thus not up to date as förstabil.

" I'm going to buy a vinterbil. There will be something out of the Volvo program. In the winter you should run bakhjulsdrivet, so it will be a 740 or a 940, " says Dennis Åkerström.
