1988 Volvo 240 GLT Manual Estate

Rare to find manual; sensible miles and well kept; just two owners from new; fresh MOT; lots of service history

A bit like buses, we hadn't seen a 240 GLT manual estate for quite a while and then two come along in consecutive sales.

This one is a particularly smart example, showing 123,250 miles on the clock - a mere half-life for one of these robust load-luggers. It was sold new through Slaters of Abergele, who looked after the car for the next 19 years. They saw it no fewer than 21 times for service, the last stamp dated 2007 at 111,000 miles, so just 12,000miles have been added in the last 14 years. It carries their garage sticker in the window and the vendor has even gone to the trouble to buy some new branded number plates - again through Slaters.

Clearly well-loved, the car looks most impressive and is very clean and tidy inside and out. The only fly in the ointment is the area at the rear of the sills which has rusted - a week point on these cars although it is 33 years old lets not forget. The ever-helpful Brookhouse Volvo supply simple repair panels - a job which would be well worth the investment in the long term we feel.

It carries a no advisory MOT until August 2022 and has a handy towbar included. There is a factory luggage guard and load cover for added security and the wheels have been refurbished recently too.

These old 240s really are super cars to own and drive and go surprisingly well thanks to their tall gearing and torquey engines. This one also comes with the rather nice 240 related number plate into the bargain...
