"A complete and well-maintained car with good functionality. Nice and undamaged body and paint. Well-serviced. The air conditioning does not start."

Description

This car has been owned by the same family since new until 2022 and is one of the numbered Classic cars. These were manufactured in 1600 units during March and April 1993 and are characterized by being only available in the colors burgundy and medium blue metallic. They also featured cross-spoke (Scorpio) wheels and a color-matched grille. A Classic emblem was placed on the rear hatch and a woodgrain-look trim adorned the instrument panel. Most of the numbered Classic cars were destined for the USA, making this example somewhat rarer. Especially notable is the fact that, following a special inquiry with the factory, we learned that it was manufactured during the final production week and is number 21 from the end. Only an additional 20 cars were made after this one. The counting was done in reverse (counting down, one might say).

This well-preserved example has managed to avoid rust issues. It has been repainted below the trim line, with the original paint remaining above. A brand-new windshield has been installed. The interior is in great condition with no issues. An aftermarket air conditioning system has been installed, reportedly converted to be freon-free (according to the decal in the engine bay), but unfortunately, it doesn't start. Equipped with an airbag and a trailer hitch. The radio code for the original radio is missing, but the serial number has been sent to Volvo in the hopes of retrieving the code. Three keys are available for the car.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    The car starts easily and shifts smoothly. The brakes are also in good condition. There are no vibrations or rattling, just a bit of squeaking from the brake pads (as is common with the 240). The timing belt was replaced at 12,147 miles on May 21, 2018. The service book is fully stamped, indicating regular servicing at the authorized dealership, Bilia.

  • Interior condition:

    Nice interior in light velour. No issues to mention, but it should be noted that the wood trim on the dashboard has been replaced with aftermarket versions that resemble the original ones, as the original ones were stolen at some point (see pictures). The door pockets in beige plastic are missing from the lower inside of the front doors.

  • Exterior condition:

    The body and paint are in excellent condition. No rust underneath the doors or rear hatch. Original paint above the side moldings and professionally applied paint below the moldings. Slight wear on the corners of the bumpers. Some stone chips on the front. Normal condition on the underside. Mud and snow (M+S) tires with 5-6 mm tread on the original rims.

  • General condition:

    A beautiful 245 from the final Classic series, and being from the last production week makes it extra appealing. The fact that it has only covered 12,600 miles is evident and noticeable. The documentation supports this as well. There are no significant issues. A reconditioning with polishing and paint treatment would further enhance the impression.

Facts about the model

Volvo 240 was manufactured from 1974 to 1993. In the final two months of production, the Classic model was produced in a limited numbered run-out series, available only in blue and burgundy metallic paint. The Classic model is one of the most coveted 240 models today. It's a collector's car that can be driven and is notably safe for its age.
