Autotrader Find: Pristine 1993 Volvo 240 Wagon With 49,500 Miles

Every so often, I do an Autotrader search to find a low-mileage Volvo 240 in order to create a good Autotrader Find, and nothing ever seems to come up: Most 240s were well-used by the families who got them, and owners didn’t generally preserve them. Well, I’ve finally found one: a 1993 Volvo 240 Wagon with just 49,555 miles from new.

Offered by Pre-Owned Cars in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale, California, this 240 is dark green with a tan interior — and no, that odometer reading hasn’t been doctored. The Carfax report shows that it’s been a California car its whole life, with the initial owner keeping it for three years, followed by a second owner who had it from 1996 until now, driving it only 2,000 miles per year during that timeframe.

And if you were still questioning the mileage, all you’d have to do to verify it is check out the car’s condition. The exterior is nice, but the interior is absolutely pristine, with the seats showing virtually no wear and the dashboard retaining its factory-original appearance. It’s the same story with the door panels, the cargo area and even under the hood, which is unusually tidy given the car’s age and mileage.

Although this 240 is offered for a reasonably high $14,996, it really is hard to come by — and if you’re looking for a perfect 240, this is a great option. Find a Volvo 240 Wagon for sale
