Autotrader Find: 1992 Volvo 240 With 70,000 Miles

If you’re looking for a really nice Volvo 240, you know that excellent examples have gotten really hard to find — to the point where it’s become a bit of a needle-in-a-haystack kind of thing. But this particular Volvo 240 is absolutely pristine.

What you have here is a 1992 Volvo 240, from the car’s second-to-last year of production, and it’s in fantastic shape. Not only has it traveled just 70,600 miles from new, but it has very little wear: the body looks absolutely fantastic, and the interior is almost entirely free from wear. The car looks like it has fewer than the low miles it has.

According to the Carfax report, this 240 was sold new in Connecticut before moving down to Florida in 2007 — presumably as the original owner retired. The ad notes that the current seller bought the car from the original owner, so it’s likely that owner had it for more than 20 years. That’s obviously impressive, but it clearly shows in the condition of the car.

The ad also notes this 240 has had a lot of maintenance done, including new brakes and rotors, a new timing belt, a new fuel pump, modernized air conditioning and more — meaning, in theory, it’s ready for you to come and drive away in the 240 of your dreams. It’s offered by a private seller in Naples, Florida, for $10,500. Find a Volvo 240 for sale

  1. I owned a 240 for about 11 years; bought it used with 100,000 miles on the odometer, drove it hard (used it for TSD rallies, and even used it as a tow vehicle for my Pro Rally car), then sold it at 240,000 miles for only $200 less than I originally paid for it. This car was a tank. I must’ve got it airborne a half-dozen times, but it just took the abuse and kept going. Incredibly comfortable seats, too

  2. In typical Volvo fashion – this car was old and outdated when it was new in 1992. Volvo has a history of keeping cars around a long time – look at the previous 2 generations of S60 – they both stuck on for 8 year lifespans (’01-’10, ’10-’18) and the 1st XC90 (’02-’15)
