beautiful car. One of the cleanest 242's I've seen in a long time. Where are you located? Any performance modifications to the engine/trans? May want to take the time to write out a list of the major things done to it, to avoid getting a ton of emails asking the same questions. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks for the reply. The engine and trans are stock. I live in the Kansas City area and am a member of the Heart of America chapter of the VCOA. What has been done to the car were major undertakings and my goal was to do those things right and then at some point I wanted to do a major engine build and big brake kit. I have hundreds of photos including what we started with and receipts for serious buyers to review.

This car has Won National VCOA Events in 2009 in Tulsa Oklahoma, 2010 in Kansas City and 2011 in Lindsborg, Kansas and 2009 and 2010 Won Best of Show Award for "Volvo with Attitude.
The best awards however is when we go to this big show in KC where we put this car up against all makes of cars (including Corvette's, Mustangs, etc) in the 1979 - 1989 class and it won the class in 2009 and 2011 and took 2nd in 2010. Fun to see the faces of those cars owners when a "Volvo" beats them - lol.
Hope this helps!!
Do you still have the Car? I am interested.
