A Survivor like no other in Totally Original Condition!
This is the car the motoring journalists loved to hate, but the truth is that these safe, solid and long-lasting machines now get even better – they are today sought after classics.
Volvo would be the first to admit that the old 240 was never designed for driving enthusiasts. Rather, it is a thoroughly sensible car for people whose priorities are crash-worthiness, towing-ability and roominess. Handling, fuel economy and performance are down the list somewhat, so for its buyers, the 240 was just the ticket. This series of cars was in production for a very long time and there was no direct replacement. The 760 GLE was supposed to succeed it in 1982 but the old car kept on selling. It was still available when the 850 arrived in 1992 but finally disappeared a year later. Traditional Volvo buyers still seek out the 240 as the cars seem to have been built to last just about forever.
