"A U.S. specification Volvo 244 in a condition that you don't see often today."


This Volvo was purchased new in June 1980 by a Swedish couple living in California. It has U.S. specifications, including features such as air conditioning, power steering, central locking, a catalytic converter, power windows in the front, and a U.S.-spec front. The car was primarily used as a second car/shopping car by the couple's wife. An earthquake in 1994 caused some small dents and dings in the car's body when items from the garage shelves fell onto the car.

In 1995, the Volvo was brought back to Sweden to be used during the summers when the couple visited. In 2005, it ended up with the current owner and has been used very sparingly, covering approximately 300 miles since then. The car is in an untouched original condition and in very good shape. It has been recently serviced with new engine oil, filters, and spark plugs, and it recently passed the vehicle inspection without any issues.

Facts about the model

The Volvo 240 was an evolution of the Volvo 140 and was introduced in 1974. On the early models of the Volvo 240, you can clearly see design elements in the front end that were inspired by the Volvo VESC (Volvo Experimental Safety Car) concept. The 240, including the Volvo 260, enjoyed great sales success and is Volvo's most produced model series with approximately 2.86 million units. It was categorized, much like its predecessor, into the 242 (two-door version), 244 (four-door version), and 245 (estate/wagon model). These designations were officially removed starting with the 1983 model year, and instead, all versions were officially referred to as the 240. However, the designations continued to be used internally and colloquially to specify the body type.

  • 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.
