Description:

1989 Volvo 240 DL

Enthusiast owned with a clean title ready for the new owner. Local car that has spent it's whole life here in the piedmont area of NC. Beige 1989 Volvo 245 wagon with the rare 5-speed manual transmission. 317k well cared for miles. No underbody rust and cosmetically the car looks great! For a heavy wagon, I'veseen 30mpg on long highway trips.Power windows and locks, vinyl/leatherette interior with rare tan Volvo All-Weather mats. Lots of recent preventative maintenance to make the car 100% reliable.R134a Volvo conversion and A/C blows cold and heat is hot. Still has genuine Volvo door pockets and center console that are always trashed. Original CIBIE headlights not faded or yellowed. Chrome roof rack upgrade. Recently upgraded the alternator to a 740 100amp Denso unit with correct size Conti belts. Timing belt done at 292k by previous owner. Clutch and transmission feel excellent and I just changed the transmission fluid to a Royal Purple Syncromax synthetic. It has a full sized spare tire, full size rolling jack, and T handle lug wrench in the hatch compartment. I'm also including a fitted car cover, Bentley manual, and spare parts if buyer wants them. To be an '89, this car looks and drives fantastic. I'm confident the new owner will NOT be disappointed! Please message me with any questions or for more detailed pictures. I did all of the work on this car and will be happy to talk to potential buyers.

Cons:Rust spot about the size of a nickel around the windshield (treated) and a couple of tiny rust spots on the roof.Hatch hinge wiring frayed causing rear defrost/wiper to work intermittently.New tires that are sedan sized so the speedometer reads 8 mph fast, making miles go up faster.Some clearcoat peeling on the roof.Front seats aren't pretty: split along seams and will need to be recovered. Driver bolster is also worn.Rear seat folding mechanism is stiff but seats still fold down fine.
