1988 Volvo 240

I Bought this car last spring from a guy in Tacoma Washington that did all the work to it. My wife an I then drove it across the country to Pennsylvania. We have taken it on a couple trips up to Maine and a few spots close to us but haven't really been driving it much the last few months so it has to go. I wouldn't hesitate to drive this back across the country, it runs and drives great. The mileage is over 300k but you can see the car is in great shape and nearly everything has been replaced as well as the whole top end of the motor being rebuilt as well as the transmission.

The Good: Well thought out engine build and recently rebuilt AW70, a couple suspension parts; ZERO rust (rare on this coast); only one dent (above drivers A pillar on roof, baseball sized); Newer tires; Runs great.

The Bad: Clear coat is starting to peel; Drivers seat is ripped pretty good and dash is cracked up; A/C is non-op (has a broken hard line going into the top of the pump). Not much else.
