For Sale: 1989 Volvo 240 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Highly original and exceptional care are what make this 1989 Volvo 240DL Wagon instantly attractive. And as you see that this is a loaded grocery-getter with all the right desirable features - including a five-speed - you have found a distinctive classic that's also unmistakably an appealing driver.


We all remember these Volvos for being sturdy machines that could pull family hauler duty for decades. But what makes this one so special is its history. The odometer is believed to represent the full actual mileage, and averaging about 2,400 miles annually means this wasn't a road trip king. In fact, this has only had two owners, and it has been treated to garage-kept care. That's why the original paint has an impressive gloss and shine. And you can tell this one has been treated with care. The Swedish steel keeps the look of a sturdy and safe classic, and in fact, you know there's a higher level of care just by the way the rear doors have none of the hallmark dings that come from little kids flinging the rear doors open. This has all the little details you remember so well. The full-length trim, factory wheel covers, plastic mud flaps, flush-mounted headlights, and full roof rack really turn back the clock on this time capsule wagon.


The tan interior continues the stock and preserved look of this car. It's a loaded classic with power windows, power locks, power front seats, cruise control, power steering, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) There's even upgraded driving music with an AM/FM stereo with USB input and hands-free Bluetooth. It also comes with good extras, like a replacement front seat cover and the factory radio for those who want a factory-fresh look. Plus, there's an underlying appeal also of the added secure feeling when driving a Volvo compared to other classics. More than just a sturdy car, they were safety pioneers. You have features like a collapsible steering column, wide headrests, and shoulder belts in the second row. So it makes for the kind of classic that you feel more confident about with family and friends. But you don't need any of them to enjoy this one. After all, a stick-shift wagon really makes for a fun driver's classic. And even before you fold down the rear seats, there's the kind of cargo room that would make modern crossovers jealous.


Under the hood is the correct-style 2.4-liter motor. This is the desirable and hardy Red Block motor. It has the clean look of good care, and factory fuel injection makes for a strong runner today. The desirable five-speed manual transmission is a smooth shifter that gives you firm control over it all. Part of the safety spirit includes four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS. It also makes for a sharper handling car. And that also goes for the investment in new thick sway bars and premium Bilstein shocks added in 2015.


The sale comes complete with a car cover, owner's manual, sales literature, some receipts, and spare components (oil filters, fuses, bulbs, etc.) This is the time capsule wagon that has also been given the right investments to make sure you can enjoy the drive today. So if you love a distinct car with integrity, you know you need this Volvo. Call today!!!
