1978 Volvo 240
I bought this car recently from a nice fellow in Delaware to keep as a daily driver. I had a similar one back in the 70's that got me through college and I kept for many years. Now, due to a bad left hip and my age, I cant muster the energy to drive this car. It cost me around $2500 to buy it, took 2 days to drive it back through a snowstorm and get it back to Georgia. I will lose money on it, but I just cant drive it without hurting my hip. Hopefully, someone else can enjoy it.
It is a manual 4 speed with electric overdrive. Shifts great, brakes and tires are good. It has 333,000 miles on it. We just got back from picking it up, put 900 miles on it, and it drove really well. Power steering, roll-up windows. Clock, heater, fan, speedometer, gas and temp gauges all work. All lights work. Jetronic fuel injection, so no choke, starts every time.
Here is the original ad from when I bought it:
One owner until recently. 332k miles. M46 manual trans with working overdrive. No factory AC. Yes, it has rust (see photos). Floors are surprisingly not terrible. Some rust along the edges where the floor meets the rockers. The cargo area was always covered and is pretty much unfaded and looks nearly new. Drivers seat has some tears. Have put several hundred miles on the car and it runs and drives well. Original owner only ever used genuine factory Volvo replacement parts to repair and service it, and the original owner or the dealer did all of the service. Oil was said to be changed every 2K from new. New timing belt, motor and trans mounts done within the past 2K, anda ton of other new parts. Too much to list. Oil just changed 50 miles ago and we used a factory oil filter of course. Radio is not included. The early 240's have become very difficult to find in any condition. I would not be afraid to drive this car on a long trip.
I will accept Paypal, and Im willing to meet within a few hour drive, or you can arrange to come and get it.
