Up for auction is our beloved 1990 Volvo 240 DL station wagon. It has my personal favorite color combo black exterior / dark charcoal cloth interior.
The exterior looks great from 10 feet away. Upon closer inspection you'll notice the less than stellar paint job. On the top you can see where the old topcoat was peeling underneath the new paint. There is orange peel throughout. Additionally, there has been some less than adequate touch up work done on top of the drivers door and the rear passenger door from where the paint was cracking. The body is as clean as you will find any where. No dents or dings anywhere. She's a southern girl, so there is no rust as well. All the trim is in great shape except for the front passenger wheel trim has some damage. The 2 front tires are in good condition, the rear 2, not so much. It has the factory donut spare in excellent condition.
The interior has the standard cracks in the dash, which have been covered with black gorilla tape. The drivers side map holder is partially broken, and also secured with black gorilla tape. The drivers seat is a bit warped and shows some wear, but very presentable. The passenger seat, back seat, carpet, headliner, and cargo area are all in excellent condition. All the power windows work as they should. The clock, speedometer, odometer/trip all work. The blower motor makes a whining sound on high. The heat will burn you out of the car. The heated seats used to work, but don't seem to now, could be a fuse or.....? The a/c blows semi cool sometimes. It was checked out and the compressor and everything tested fine. I've had 3 240's and not one of them has cooled to my liking. A freon charge might help a little, but I wouldn't expect miracles. All the lights, wipers, etc work as they should. .
At just under 265.000K, she is just reaching her prime. The engine starts on the first try every time, even after sitting a few weeks, and purrs like a kitten. The transmission shifts smooth and functions as it should. The front shocks are shot, and the back ones are not much better. It also needs a right tie rod end and a front end alignment.
New shocks and 2 new tires and I wouldn't hesitate to head across country in this car. These are one of the all time greats when it comes to dependability, and to find one this clean is getting much harder to do.

All-New 2015 Volvo XC90 - CRASH TEST
The all-new XC90 offers the most comprehensive and technologically
sophisticated standard safety package available in the automotive industry.
It includes two world first safety technologies: a run-off road protection
package and auto brake at intersection capability.
In a run-off road scenario, the all-new Volvo XC90 detects what is
happening and the front safety belts are tightened to keep the occupants in
position. To help prevent spine injuries, energy-absorbing functionality
between the seat and seat frame cushions the vertical forces that can arise
when the car encounters a hard landing in the terrain.
The XC90 is the first car in the world with technology that features
automatic braking if the driver turns in front of an oncoming car. This is
a common scenario at busy city crossings as well as on highways, where the
speed limits are higher.
City Safety becomes the umbrella name for all of Volvo Cars’ auto brake
functions, which are standard equipment in the all-new XC90. It now covers
vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in front of the car, day and night.

Volvo 240 Death
The "Toaster" meets its end. This car was free 3 years ago and I drove it
into the ground through those years. I plan on owning another when i get
out of the service.
