I thought you all might get a kick out of this, it is quite interesting...
Quote » The Volvo 243 was a limited run of 30 cars in 1982 due to a malfunction of machinery in the Belgium Volvo factory, causing car bodies to be made incorrectly. The cars had one left hand door, as per the Volvo 242, and two right hand doors, as per the Volvo 244. All 30 cars were completed, and were exported to Estonia for sale. All cars came with warranty and are highly sought after today. So far, this is the only car known in the whole world that has four door car right side and coupe left side.
Above is what Wiki says, but this is what the owner says:
The owner of this car says that 27 of these were made for the Swedish Police. The right right side of the car is a 244 and the left side of the car is a 242. The left side was hand welded. He says the car was put together in a special Volvo shop away from the normal production line.
He says it is a 1987 model, but came to Estonia in 1996. Since 1990, there were very small numbers of Western cars in Estonia. Thanks to the Soviet occupation, it was forbidden to buy cars unless they were Soviet. So essentially, he thinks these cars could not have come to Estonia in early 80's.
He is still trying to find out the true story of these rare cars.
He has tried to contact Volvo several times about these cars, but they have not responded.
