Description for Volvo 240 1983

Up for sale is my 1983 Volvo 242DL. Freshly repainted in the original Scotia Blue as of April 2015. The bumpers and trim were removed prior to being painted. It had the passenger side rocker replaced with a German part due to minor very rust. Engine is the bulletproof B23F and behind it is a smooth shifting M46 manual transmission with J type Laycock overdrive which works well. The shifter bushings are worn, ut new ones are included with the sale. Runs and drives well. Unsure as to the actual mileage as I have replaced the speedometer several times in the past 12 years or so. Rare Webasto sunroof. It is said to be one of 8 built with this sunroof as a "concept" car. This was information I was given by a local Volvo dealer in 2002. It was a "special delivery" car, nd lived the first part of its life in Germany. No factory AC. Has power steering. Just tuned; new plugs, ap/rotor, ir filter. Turbo sways, PD overload rear springs, irgos, nd a bunch of extra parts. Good tires. Car is in dry storage, ot sitting outdoors in the weather. Very sad to sell it. Has been a part of the family on and off for a long time. I have a 1-year-old son who takes my time and attention, o the car must go.
