1982 Volvo 240DL - Award Winner
I am the original owner of the car, purchased new from a Volvo dealership in Toronto. All maintenance has been done by myself and/or the same independent mechanic for the last 32yrs.
The car is an award winner both here in Canada and South of the Border and recently was the highest scoring car in its category at a recent ACCCC Concourse D'Elegence, scoring 97.3%. This is a show car that is winter stored and driven for pleasure only and showcased at a number of car shows every year. It has also been featured in Volvo magazines, the Toronto Star newspaper and Toronto Sun newspaper.
The car is in sound mechanical condition without any issues whatsoever. All mechanics, brakes, engine, transmission, clutch, drive train, electrics are performing like new and repairs were made as needed over the years. All fluids have been changed regularly and the car can simply be driven for many years more without any immediate or additional repairs required.
70% of the paint, entire interior, engine and electrics are all original, hence the award winning status it receives every year. This is a car that has not been modified, altered or otherwise. It is as it was when coming off the assembly line for the first time.
Unlike the images provided, the car now has "Historical Plates" and enjoys the many discounts for licensing, a historical car is entitled to.
The car sale includes a vast number of NOS (new old stock) parts, too many to mention and some of which are very rare. Included in the sale are all the Volvo Shop Manuals, documentation, original sales receipt, awards, and much more. The Volvo is suitable for someone who wants to continue the legacy of this car, enjoy its award winning status and hopefully love and care for it as I have done for the last 32yrs. $15,000 Cdn O.B.O.
