      1984 245 Diesel w/ Manual Transmission- One Owner!

      One owner car, bought new in Houston, Texas by my parents. Always garaged, not driven much the last 5 years. Has 125Kish on it (I need to look and get an exact number). Just replaced the timing belts and some coolant hoses last year. Has good tires, etc on it. Could stand to have some suspension work done (struts, bushings, etc...usual 240 stuff). No body rust. No cracks/broken interior parts other than the cover on the bottom of the back seat is cracked. Interior is VERY clean for a 1984 240.
      Just had the car professionally buffed. Having new rear window glass installed (Car was parked outside while I was working on another one in the garage, left and came back home and it was busted out?). No major dents, dents, etc.

      Not sure what it's worth, open to reasonable offers (IE do not PM me and offer me $500.). I would prefer that you call me at (940) 368-2818 if you are seriously interested. I would consider trades for something reasonable- no projects. Hoping to find a home for it within the Volvo community. I'm going to give it 2 weeks on here then put it out for sale to the general public.

      Selling because my Mom is battling breast cancer and since they removed lymphnodes from under her right arm she is not supposed to be driving a stick shift and the car is basically sitting around so she has said sell it.

      At any rate if you are interested please CALL me at 940-368-2818.

      I'll have to go to my warehouse one day and take photos. No interior issues other than the bottom rear seat cushion is cracking. Map pockets are not broke, dash is not cracked...none of the normal 240 issues.

      If you are seriously interested please call. It's a 24 year old car and it is not perfect and it's best to discuss on the phone is someone is serious.

      I would agree.

      I am fixing a few small odds and ends on it and then it will be listed in a week or so.

      No. Selling 4 cars at the moment and this one is the least of my worries at the moment.

      Give me a call if you're interested in the car

      You should get a pretty penny for it. Especially for the miles that it has. Good luck.

      Re: (benjam83)

      Interior and underhood photos were requested. I quickly took these photos and more are available are here:
      http://s62.photobucket.com/alb...20245/
      If you do not see something and you want a photo of it please let me know and I will take a photo and get it to you. Please note nothing was heavily detailed for the photos- the car is shown in it's natural clean state.

      Once again if you'd like more photos please view the first link and if you do not see something let me know and I will take more for you.

      Thank you,

      Nick

      Nick,
      Pictures look great!
      I used to own an 84 Diesel wagon, had it until 1995. Maybe we can come to mutually agreeable terms. Please email me privately with the $value you are looking for.
      Thanks, John

      For anyone who was watching the auction that is wondering why the listing disappeared: Some low life SOB hacked into my e-bay account and e-bay caught it so they canceled the auction. It was bid up to $5300 as of Friday morning and would have ended at 8:45pm Sunday night. I had a buyer on the hook for a buy it now of $7000 and was about to do that when the auction got canceled- he thought I was trying to scam him and backed out. Right after I got of the phone with him and he backed out of the deal (after me turning down higher offers because I thought he would be a good owner for the car) I had another guy call and offer me the same $7000. I am waiting on the deposit for that offer now but I am assuming he is honest and the car has sold for $7000. Thank you for all of the interest and e-mails. I think it would have sold for more if the auction had went to the end but given that I would not have to relist it I don't want to risk it and am just going to take the $7000.

      I'm not sure who hacked in or why but it really pisses me off. I spent 3 hours listing the car and 3-4 hours each day answering e-mails and phone calls on the car. My parents could really use the money due to my mom's health situation and it really pisses me off mostly for that reason, and I had a great buyer lined up for the car (VCOA member, owns several vintage Volvos, etc). Oh well, thats how it goes I guess.

      Thank you,

      Nick
