Autotrader Find: One-Owner Volvo 240 With 56,000 Miles

In the world of Volvo, the boxy 240 remains the well-respected king of the hill — the most reliable, indestructible, characteristically old-school Volvo of them all. It is, for many enthusiasts, the Volvo of Volvos. See the 1990 Volvo 240 models for sale near you

But there’s a problem. Because the 240 has such an impressive reputation for longevity and dependability, people buy them to drive long distances over long periods of time. The result: Most 240s are rusty or smashed up, with worn out interiors, fading paint and huge mileage readings on the odometer.

Not this one.

What you see here is a 1990 Volvo 240 DL finished in metallic beige over tan cloth with just 56,000 original, one-owner miles. That’s right: This 240 has only had one meticulous, caring owner — and it has likely never seen snow, as it was solely owned in Lake City, Florida, since being purchased new on August 30, 1990 with 176 miles on the odometer.

More impressive than its one-owner status, however, is the mileage: The odometer currently reads just below 56,000, well-verified by the Carfax report, as this 240 has been routinely serviced at a Volvo dealership since new. In other words, this is your last, best remaining chance to get a pristine Volvo 240.

Unfortunately, it’s going to cost you: This 240 is parked in the showroom at O’Steen Volvo in Jacksonville, Florida, where it’s offered for a pricey $14,495. But if you’re looking for the ultimate 240, we suspect you won’t find it anywhere else. Find a 1990 Volvo 240 for sale
