1978 Volvo 240 (Beige/Brown)

Price: US $11,000.00

 My wife and I havebeen driving 240 series Volvos since 1997. While my boys were in high school,we had three 240s – a 1976 245 DL , a 1978 245 DL, and a 1980 244 DL.  My boys drove the ’76, the ’78 was my workcar, the ’80 my wife’s work car. When my oldest son attended college, we boughta 1991 Volvo 244 for him to use, which he now has in Ridgecrest, CA. When myyoungest son graduated college, he took the ’76 with him to Houston, TX and itis still running great. With the purchase of a 2009 Toyota Venza, my wife and Istill have four cars, so we decided we needed to let one of them go. My oldestson has asked for the’80 Volvo when my wife and I retire. That will bring ourfleet down to two cars. As you can see, our family loves the 240 series Volvosand have found them to be great cars.                Regardingthe ’78 Volvo 245 for sale, I have driven this car for 12 years, and as far asI know am the third owner.  I had a ’88740 Turbo wagon which was t-boned, and I needed another car. I found this ’78for sale and ready to go. As you can see from the photos it has turbo wheels,which came from the ’88 Volvo. Other than the wheels, I have kept it asoriginal as possible.  I have taken meticulouscare of all of my Volvos. In turn, they have provided my family withreliability, safety, practicality and it seems, lately, social status. My son’s’76 Volvo has 450K miles, my wife’s 80 Volvo 300k, and my ’78 Volvo 285K. Ihave received many compliments on this car, both for its appearance and the wayit runs. I have changed the oil religiously every 2500-3000 miles. The overallcondition of the exterior and interior is just beautiful.  I believe there are  many miles left in this ’78 245 DL and withtender care and regular maintenance will last many more years. We trust NADA’svaluation of this car; it seems this particular model has become quite rare.NADA pricing info available at: https://www.nadaguides.com/Cars/1978/Volvo/245/4-Door-Station-Wagon/Values
