ANOTHER Low Mileage Volvo 240!

So maybe you saw last week's 57,000 mile 1983 Volvo 240 post and thought "That's cool, but it's almost $15,000.00 and I really want a 2 door. I guess I'll never be able to own a low mileage 240."
Oh, how wrong you are...

This is a 1979 240 5 speed 2 door with just 64,000 miles on it. As I said in the earlier 240 post, I find that more remarkable than a high mileage 240.

The 240 really was a remarkable car. Built during the time when putting 100k miles on a car was a major feat, the 240 would easily do 200k or more. The engine was bulletproof and the rest of the car featured good, simple engineering.

It looks like this car is being sold by a place that specializes in older Volvos. There are some pictures with quite a few Volvos in them. The seller says it looks and runs "great" and is still wearing it original oh-so-seventies brown paint. It is also as basic as a car gets with no power windows, power locks, air conditioning or even a radio.

If you've always wanted a near-new 30 year old Volvo, here's your (second) chance.
