Presenting This 1988 Volvo 240 'GL' 2.0i Automatic Saloon With Just 61,000 Miles & Three Previous Keepers Since New


This 'Grand Luxe' model is fitted with delightful period options including
Mushroom leather upholstery, heated seats, electric windows, 14' steel road wheels, black wrap around bumpers, square grille with chrome surround, heated rear window, headlamp wash wipe, front spoiler, front & rear headrests with padded covers, tachometer, central locking, 12v power socket with an unused cigar lighter, power steering, three speed automatic transmission with overdrive

Finished in the lovely period option of Claret Red

This is one of the finest examples ever discovered by ourselves, she is a true survivor! The coachwork remains as good as when she left the Volvo factory some thirty two years ago, achieved by very careful road use & equally careful garage storage followed by decades of Sunday polishing!

The flanks are pin straight & remains in a true time-warp order. The underside of this 240 GL is corrosion free with all original panels present with no welding repairs ever necessary - she must be seen!

Optioned with the super comfortable button studded Mushroom leather upholstery

Offered in exceptional & totally original condition throughout - further confirming the careful use & very low mileage, totally unrestored & it is of course, now ready for another three decades! Unusually, this Volvo was optioned without a radio unit & has never been fitted with one since.

The 1986cc four cylinder petrol engine with Bosch fuel injection & three speed automatic transmission with overdrive are in fine health with instant cold starting & drives perfectly as expected from a Volvo 240 with just 61,000 miles!

On our workshops road test, there was no issues found & we was very impressed by just how solid this 1988 example feels on both rough city streets & smoother motorways.

Reading through the impressively large service history file, it is obvious that the vehicle has wanted for nothing, also documented is the all important timing belt change carried out at 45k by the same garage who has maintained this 240 'GL' for the past seventeen years. Try finding another to this quality!!

This 240 'GL' was originally supplied by the Volvo main dealership 'Perrys Of Canterbury' in Kent to a Mr Winskell of Herne Bay who dearly loved his brand new Volvo haing owned many previous & prized models.

The vehicle then appears to have changed keepers & moved into the Surrey area, with the current keeper, Mr Clark, enjoying his 240 'GL' for the past seventeen years!

Today this 1988 example is a true time warp experience with the original dealership branded number plates, rear window sticker & 'Perrys' boot badge all still present

Included inside the huge amount of service history is every MoT test certificate from new, many servicing invoices from the supplying Volvo dealership, many recent servicing invoices from local garages including a new timing belt at 45k, many correspondents from Volvo Concessionaires UK & 'Perrys'

A complete set of owners books & manuals are also present & include:
The original Volvo brnaded vinyl wallet, Volvo 240 owners manual, 'Perrys' Approved Used Car booklet, Volvo owners insurance scheme guide, Volvo traveling guide, spare keys with Volvo dealership fob, even the original salesman's business card from 'Perrys of Canterbury'

This 1988 'E' registered example is presented in a true time warp example with an exceptionally low mileage from new. Certainly one of the most genuine & unmolested Volvo 240's on the market today.
