1990 Volvo 240 DL

This car runs really well, smooth, and dependably. I am the second owner, since October 1994 and bought it from Volvo of Lisle. The interior is in fantastic condition for the age - been a non-smoker's car its entire life. The title is clean. The exterior is not bad, but certainly far from mint.
Is it a perfect car? Certainly not - and if the exterior were in great condition and all the quirks of the engine addressed, then it would be listed at a whole lot more. But, it is a good car, very reliable, and has been cared for the past 24 years.
I am happy to share additional photos.

Known issues:
a. Fuel gauge broken, easily worked around by filling every 200 miles
b. Air conditioning needs to be updated to new system and charged. Typical for a Volvo 240 at this age.
c. Rack & pinion system needs to be replaced, or simply replace power steering fluid periodically (this has been the method for ten years)
d. Will need new tires eventually
e. Was in a T-bone crash hitting passenger side, rear quarter panel, Feb 11, 2011. Bumper, right rear tail light assembly and dent pulled/sealed by Wreck & Roll. No leaks at all since then
f. Some clearcoat peeling on front driver's quarterpanel and in other areas of car
g. Some rust on lower quarter panels and in other areas - not terribly major
g. Odometer stopped at 157,572. Driven less than 200 miles since then. Easily solved with replacing a gear inside odometer - I can share directions and provide the part.
