Description:

1993 Volvo 240 Classic

I purchased this Volvo 240 Classic wagon from a slimy used car salesman on Long Island named Hesham in March 2013. If you ever have contact with him, ou should run the other way quickly. Long story short, e misrepresented many aspects but I could not walk away from this special vehicle.
Benefits
#697 of the final 1600 Classic Edition 240's off the production line in 1993.
Most of every common repair job has been completed by a highly qualified local Volvo mechanic in the last 2.5 years. See list below.
This is the famous bulletproof cast iron B230 engine. Just change the fluids and an occasional timing belt (recently done).
It's -20degrees outside? Cranks right over for you with a blast furnace heater following 2 minutes later. A/C works well too.
A complete tank in the snow & bad weather. Front OEM sway bar. Exceptionally stable for a rear wheel drive in all conditions and absolutely more stable than a SUV or Pickup when it gets messy.
Parallel park on a dime with it's ridiculous turning radius. Heated seats & power mirrors, egal tinted rear windows. Aftermarket undercoating.
Remarkable cargo space. A lot more room for storage than most SUV's. I drove a new dishwasher home from Lowes without a problem. Just lay down the back seats and throw it in there.
Did I mention SAFE? How's the safest car ever built in it's class? Yes, ver. All '93 240's have drivers air bags also.
I would (and did) drive this car anywhere fearlessly. It is made to go there and bring you back again. Festival tested, ombie resistant, pocalypse ready.
Character Flaws
No high beam. Low beam only. It never bothered me. Issue is in the column stalk. Easy swap.
Temp gauge does not work. Fuel gauge works most of the time. I just set the trip odometer and fill every 250miles
Dash service light comes on after each ignition. Stays on for about 45seconds than always turns off. I could never find what this issue was. Diagnostics have been run multiple times without throwing any codes. Who knows.
Dash Light Bulb Out indicator light comes on when you press the brake sometimes. This is a bug I didn't have time to chase much. It's occasional and only affects the right rear fog light. So I just left the rear fogs turned off, o biggie.
Radio not hooked up. It was my next job on the list. All of the door speakers look to be in great shape though.
Driver seat has typical small tears in the vinyl, assenger does not. Both have comfortable aftermarket canvas seat covers snugly over top.
Driver side fender has a dent and shows some rust near the mud flap area. An old fender bender accident repair job was shoddy at best. To repair it properly, t would need a replacement fender. Can be found on eBay +/-$300
No clear coat failure or any other body issues but there are various dings, mall scratches and typical "character flaws" of a 200k vehicle. I did my best to show in the pictures.
Call me crazy but I fixed the broken odometer and rolled it forward to it's more truthful mileage. Carfax report will show a discrepancy because I was honest and told the DMV the original mileage was incorrect. I was not anticipating selling this car. Again, all me crazy.
Unusual extras Included: OEM tan armrest with 4 cup holders. OEM rear cargo spill tray. Digital ambient air temperature gauge. Complete OEM dog barrier gate sourced & installed. A perfect transport for my late 130lb dog. Plenty of room for him to stand and enjoy the views comfortably. 4 OEM Volvo molded floor trays, Northeast essential. 4 OEM leather head rest inserts.Work done since my 3/2013 purchase (other than oil changes religiously every 3k)

I used this car to transport a cranky wife, wo wonderful kids and a large dog around town, n long road trips (Jersey to Kentucky & back), amping, nd to attend the occasional music festival. It's great for many tasks.

You're welcome to bring your mechanic for an inspection & test drive before auction ends. I am readily available to show the car. Just send me a request and we'll set it up asap. Vehicle is currently located in Robbinsville, J 08691. Willing to ship at 100% buyers time & expense but vehicle will not be held more than 14 days after auction end.

I am selling only because of a pending divorce and my awesome dog passing away. As life goes, hings change quickly & I have little use for an extra utility vehicle + insurance now. I've already done much of the heavy (read: expensive) repair work & have revived it to a very solid condition. I'm not expecting to recoup all of the money I've already invested, 'm simply looking for a fair price and send it on it's way to a good owner. Bid fearlessly since the buyer will surely have many, any more miles of enjoyment with little worry.
