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.

A Meticulously Maintained Volvo 240 GL with One Owner and Just 67,969 Miles from New - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
A meticulously maintained Volvo 240 GL with one owner and just 67,969 miles
Front spoiler, high mounted rear brake light, laminated windscreen, tinted
windows, heated rear window, day running lights, engine bay light, luggage
compartment courtesy light, headlamp washers, front spoiler, central
locking, heated front seats, rear seat head restraints, driver seat height
adjustment, safety belt reminders, high mounted rear brake light, rear
armrest, quartz clock, rear underfloor storage compartment, electric
windows, power steering.
The exterior of this 240 is fantastic. Finished in Light Blue Metallic,
(Code 404), a colour specified as an optional extra. The appearance of the
car is a testament to the care and attention bestowed upon it by the only
owner from new. The paintwork has a bright shine and is generally in
exceptional condition. There are a few very minor scratches to the
paintwork and a light crease in the front nearside door at low level.
These minor imperfections do not, however, detract from the overall
impressive appearance of the car. All chrome and rubber trim is in
excellent order as is the glass, lights and badges. A minor crack in the
passenger mirror can just be seen. Original Volvo Dealer number plates are
still fitted. A beautiful car that defined Volvo's reputation for build
quality, a real time warp example.
The interior of this 240 is outstanding. Finished in Blue Trico Plush
trim, the seats and door trim are in excellent order and show no sign of
wear, truly in as new condition. The front seats are heated, a standard
feature on the 240 and are in perfect working order. The carpets have been
preserved by Dealer fit Volvo rubber tray mats in the front and rear, thus
remain in excellent order, free from wear. The head lining is tight and
free from marks and discolouration. Interior and glovebox courtesy
lighting is in working order. All switchgear is intact and operates the
interior controls as they should. The optional radio is original Volvo
equipment and provides clear sound through the standard dealer fit
speakers. A full tool kit and supplying Dealer key fobs still present. An
impeccable and functional 240 interior promoting a pleasant and safe
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The innovative and new for 1987 2.3 litre naturally aspirated 4 cylinder
engine performs faultlessly, providing effortless and whisper quiet
performance. This cleaner engine features Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Pulsair emission
control allowing unleaded fuel to be used. The car starts immediately on
the manual choke and pulls well through the smooth and tight 5 speed
gearbox. The incredible service history of this car is evident in its
performance, having been serviced every 6 months from new by Volvo main
dealers regardless of mileage. Amazing.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 14" steel wheels have genuine Volvo trim covers and are shod
in Michelin MX 175 R14 rear tyres and new fronts ready to complete many
more miles of safe motoring. Triangle split, dual-circuit brake system and
stepped bore master cylinder accompanies power assisted disc brakes all
round, bringing the car to a straight and steady halt. An additional high
level rear brake light accompanies the comprehensive braking system you
would expect from Volvo.
Supplied new by Volvo Main Dealers The Forum Ltd of Surrey on 15th May 1987
to a Mr Jack Mills who has remained the one and only careful owner from
new, only selling the car due to health reasons. The original New Car
Sales Invoice reveals a total price paid of £10,174.44. This car has been
maintained extensively and regardless of cost by Volvo Main Dealers,
primarily Squire Furneaux of Hersham, Surrey. The service history and
treatment this car has been subjected to is simply incredible, with all
invoices and receipts retained by the original owner. Having been
subjected to 6 monthly service intervals, the original service book has
long been filled, but is present in the file along with all subsequent
service documentation which have been numbered and logged by the owner for
ease of reference. The last in April 2012 totalling £750.30 and included
a cam-belt change. The instrument binnacle including odometer was replaced
at 60813 miles on 30th November 2007, and included in file is the invoice
and certificate for the replacement carried out by Volvo main dealers
Squire Furneaux. The odometer currently reads 7156 miles, thus confirming
the total mileage of 67969 miles. The new owner of this vehicle will be
amazed at the level of care and expense lavished upon the car throughout
its lifetime, leaving many more years of safe and reliable classic car
motoring to be enjoyed.
One key fits all locks and ignition, and there are 3 sets of keys present.
Every conceivable manual, document, brochure is included.
MOT May 2013, Tax April 2013 and HPI Clear.

2015 Volvo V60 Sport Wagon Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB
Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF
There was a time when wagons roamed the interstates ferrying families from
one National Lampoon vacation to another. With the rise of the crossover,
those looking for the original "looks practical but handles like a sedan"
mode of transport have few options and most of them live in the luxury
segment. Let's count them before we go too far. We have the
soon-to-be-cancelled TSX, the last-generation Cadillac CTS (the new wagon
may arrive next year) Jetta, E-Class, 3-Series and Prius V. Even if you
expand things to include "off-road wagons"the list only grows by three
(Allroad, Outback and XC70.) Despite the shrinking market, Volvo's brand
has long been associated with practical wagons that it's almost hard to
believe it has been three full years since Volvo sold one in America.
That's about to change with the 2015 V60.
Back in 2010 Volvo was selling two wagons in America. The V50 was based on
the compact S40 sedan and the V70 shared its soul with Volvo's 5-series
competitor the S80. Although the V70 is still sold in Europe and the V40
(the replacement for the V50) splashed down in 2013, Americans will have to
settle for Volvo's middle child: the V60 wagon. Based on Volvo's S60 sedan,
the V60 competes internationally with wagon variants of the 3-Series,
C-Class, Audi A4 and many others. But this is America and Volvo's only
direct competitor is the BWM 328i xDrive wagon. More on that later.
Despite ditching the boxy form years ago, Volvo's style remains the
automotive Birkenstock to BMW's Prada. The entire Volvo lineup in America
(except for the XC90) received a 2014 face lift with a more aggressive
grille and more creases in the hood. Volvo has finally tucked their radar
cruise control module behind a plastic panel that blends into the grille
rather than sticking out like a gray sore thumb. Out back we get bumper
cover integrates Exhausts, a large
black surround on the rear glass that made me wish it was separately
hinged, and a continuation of those oh-so-sexy Swedish hips. Volvo's
engineers kept the V60's roofline fairly high at the rear, but even the
Swedes have given in to modern "coupé" styling cues, most notable in the
greenhouse shape. The raked rear glass which looks sexier but takes a toll
on cargo space.
Birkenstocks are comfy. Prada? Hit and miss. (Or so I'm told.) And so it is
with Volvo and BMW interiors. The S60 on which the V60 is based is now 5
years old. Aside from massaging color and trim options, the only
substantive changes to the interior since it was launched is Volvo's LCD
disco dash, a new steering wheel with shift paddles (optional) and a new
gear shift knob. Despite its age, the Scandinavian chic cabin has what it
takes to complete with BMW, especially now that the 3-Series has gone
slightly down-market with more hard plastics in this generation. My only
major gripe is the small 7-inch infotainment display that is clearly
outclassed by BMW's ginormous iDrive screen.
The V60 has been priced aggressively for 2015 starting at $35,300 that's an
$800 upsell over then S60 and $6,150 less than a base 3-series wagon.
Adjusting for feature content, the base V60 is still $5,000 less. If
bargain wagons with premium badges are your thing, the TSX is king at
$31,985 starting but the delta shrinks to less than two grand when you
adjust for the V60's feature set. The $36,800 might be the more appropriate
competitor for the AWD-only 3-wagon, but a more interesting match up is the
$44,300 V60 T6 AWD. Configuring a 3 or the CTS wagon with the same
equipment you find on the Volvo will set you back at least $2,000 more. In
addition to the value factor, the Volvo brings 35% more power to the fight.
The extra power and AWD go a long way in compensating for the better weight
balance in the BMW or the Caddy. Since GM hasn't refreshed their wagon yet
the 3.0 and 3.6 liter V6 engined are outclassed in every metric by the
Swede. Option your V60 with every conceivable option and you end up at
As a former Volvo wagon owner I'm probably biased, but all the reasons I
opted for a Swedish cargo hauler in 2006 apply to the V60. Aside from the
fact that "value" strikes a fire in my loins, the Volvo is the clear
performance option in this segment. Want more shove than the $44,300 Volvo?
Pony up $64,900 for the CTS-V wagon or $102,370 for an E63 AMG wagon. I'll
reserve my final judgement until I can get my hands on one for a more
thorough evaluation, but in the mean time the V60 is quite simply the best
performance and value option in this phone booth sized segment.
