1985 Volvo 240 GL - 0 previous owners - 25k miles SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
This must be the most original and solid Volvo 240 around!


I bought this car 3 months ago after it had sat unused for 30 years in a garage on a country estate. The original owner only used it for 2.5 years before he was declared unfit to drive and parked it up! It never reached it first MOT, and was eventually sold to me by his family.


The story goes that the father and son both bought brand new estate cars at the same time, the Son a Mercedes, and the Father this Volvo 240. The Son then couldn’t bare to part with the car after his Father died, so didn’t touch it!


I bought it with the intention of getting it on the road and using it as a daily driver, but in reality it’s far too good and original for that, (it even has the original tyres!!), so I’m selling it on in the hope it will go to an enthusiast/collector who will show it.


Over the last 3 months I have slowly recommissioned the car which will be sold with a years MOT.


I have carried out the following work


Timing belt and tensioner replaced

Engine tune up

Plugs/leads/distributor replaced

All fluids and filters replaced (genuine Volvo)

Brakes completely overhauled

Clutch hydraulics replaced

Cleaning and polishing 30 years of dust and grime off this beautiful car!


Other than this the car needed nothing doing. This is as close to a brand new Volvo 240 as you’ll get, with the following points of note


All original Pirelli Cinturato P3 tyres, with 4mm or so of tread left

Unused spare wheel, jack, wheel brace and tool kit

No rust or rot. Spare wheel wells are incredible

All rubbers, plastic and lights are perfect and unfaded. I’ve never seen ones as good!

Genuine Volvo seat covers (included) used from new. The actual seats have never been sat on before 2019!

The whole interior is as new

The car drives like a new car, very very different to your average 240

0 previous registered keepers, it was never officially put in my name


During the cars storage it picked up a few very minor scratches and chips, and a small crack on the windscreen (not an MOT fail). These don’t detract from the general condition of the car, and I thought it best to leave to the new owner to decide whether they warrant remedying or not. I personally wouldn’t do anything.


There is no service book with the car, only the V5 document, but the glove box is stuck shut so the next owner could get a nice surprise! I didn’t want to force the lock and thought i’d leave that to the new owner too.


Please study the pictures carefully, and viewing is highly recommended!

This classic was a well-known Portuense industrialist, Volvos lover, who had several during his life. He always kept this as a "daily driver", because in 1983, when the car was still new, he was in Sweden in an equal taxi (turbo too) that had 500,000 Kms with the original engine.
