Description for Volvo 240 1993

For sale is my 1993 Volvo 240 wagon. It has 225k on the odometer but this was replaced by the previous owner and the car actually has about 255k (I have this documentation). I have high confidence in the reliability of this vehicle, drove it from Maine to Wyoming two summers ago and from Maine to Newfoundland last summer. Super clean interior, uns great and has good power (for a 240). I will list some of the work done below and I would love to talk to anypotentialbuyers over phone or e-mail for more specifics. I have loved owning this car and have maintained it to a high standard.
Work done in the 2.5 years I've owned it, n no particular order with many things probably forgotten:
- New Clutch
- All new rear suspension bushings
- Replaced springs with overload springs from IPD, his enables you to load cargo into it without sagging the rear end way down. Most old 240's have a sagging rear end even without cargo and the new bushings and springs solved that.
- New brakes front and rear (pads, alipers, otors) fronts were just done this summer. Before the front calipers were replaced I was having anoccasionalABS light, n doing the front brakes my mechanic diagnosed a failed ABS system. He converted the brakes back to non-ABS which is actually a huge improvement even overproperlyfunctioning early Volvo ABS.
- All new engine seals including rear main (PVC system serviced as well). I have no tolerance for leaking oil.
- I replaced the seats with seats from an 84 turbo wagon with just over 100k on it. I couldn't resist, n my view they are the nicest seats Volvo ever made. In theinterestof full disclosure the frame on the drivers seat is slightly tweaked. Itsunnoticeablesitting in it and it took me several weeks after installing the seats to even catch it. Center armrest added as well.
- All new ignition system from coil to plugs, ew voltage regulator on alternator.
- New fuel filter and fuel pump relay
- Tachometer, mall clock, nd ambient temp gauge added. Temp compensation board fixed to provide accurate engine temp readings
- Summer tires have 10k on them, omes with a second set of wheels with studded snows. I also have the OEM hubcaps, just liked the looks without them.
- Suspension sway bars were upgraded with sway bars from a GT. This greatly improved cornering and the car drives great. I still have the OEM sway bars and will include them in case the buyer wants to return it to stock.
There is a bunch of other work and I have receipts from my ownership plus some from the previous ownership. As I mentioned, have maintained it to a high standard. You could drive it as is for quite a while but if you want it to be perfect, ere is what I know it needs:
- AC worked until this summer when I broke a line attempting to swap in a new seal. If you had an AC shop braze the line back together I am confident it would work again, never really used it anyways.
- Rear wiper does not work
- Cruise control stopped working last week
- Replaced the rear torque arm bushings with poly bushings, hey make some noise unless they are greased occasionally. The fix would be to swap them back to OEM rubber, t doesn't really bother me.
These are pretty minor issues and if you are buying a 23 year old car then you probably want to do a little tinkering. Thanks for reading if you have made it this far, am certainly a Volvo enthusiast and would be more than happy to talk about this vehicle in length both before and after sale and provide any additional photos you want. The main reason for sale is the purchase of a 1990 Saab SPG and Icouldn'tjustifymaintainingtwo old Swedish automobiles.
Title is in hand. Maine does not issue titles after a vehicle is 12 years old so the title is the Vermont title which was signed over to me from thepreviousowner. There are additional spaces where this title can then be signed over again so tishouldn'tbe an issue.
