Volvo 244 GLE — 1990

From many collectors' views, this 240 is exceptional; with just two previous owners, very low miles and carefully driven, and always kept in a warm garage, it has a nice GLE specification from the time.

"It has been meticulously maintained from the start and has been owned for 10 years by a Volvo enthusiast, and it is in outstanding condition."


The car was purchased new in Malmö in 1990 by a man who took excellent care of it, drove it sparingly, and kept it in great condition. The present owner, a huge Volvo enthusiast, bought the car from the original owner little over ten years ago and has continued the meticulous care. Every year, I drive about 1000 kilometers of summer miles. "Cars need be driven to keep them running correctly," the owner said. It is also now free of road tax, and for those who prefer original number plates without an EU mark. The car is still in near-new condition today, making it quite unique and one of the best 240s we've seen.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Service intervals per the book by the first owner, followed by a more frequent oil service as a  collector car and a timing belt change in 2013. The engine feels and sounds right, with a distinct dominant fan sound, and the transmission shifts smoothly.

  • Interior condition:

    Very nice and nice plush interior with clean carpets and a general new car feeling, matched by lighter luxury equipment such as the upholstery, paint, automatic gearbox, power windows in the front, headrests in the rear, and... silver locking buttons.

  • Exterior condition:

    Untouched and well-kept exterior with some evidence of care: wings edges with original fittings at the bottom and factory corrosion protection, and inner wings with still shiny yellow-galvanized screws and nuts. Other excellent aspects to look forward to are the bottom edges of the sills and its unrepaired steps with visible spot welds, as well as drains from the factory's rust protection in the body's well-known rear tubs.

  • General condition:

    The car has been well kept and is in superb collector's condition. This is a highly representative 240 youngtimer whose new ownership demands and deserves continuing care.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
