Ready to show now !!
Here at Old Colonel Cars we are very pleased to offer another outstanding modern classic, a Volvo 240 2.3i Manual Estate.
This is a October 1991 example with 112,000. The previous owner, who was a perfectionist to say the least, spent over £20,000 having this car completely restored to show condition. In brief, this work included a fully documented strip down of car and repaint by a well respected Rolls Royce / Classic race specialist. This included a full strip down underneath this car, re applying all the protection as they would have done at the factory and repainting the car to excellent standards. The interior was treated to new seat covers / headlining etc so its like new. The engine and mechanics were also giving a full work over, replacing all fluids / suspension parts / Brakes / Engine work / Clutch etc etc.
The car is an outstanding example, ready to show now. The history with this car is as good as you will ever find. We have no less that 4 folders documenting everything that has been done to this car from day 1. We also have all the original manuals / original service book / all keys etc.
Power steering / Electric mirrors / Heated front seats / Modern stereo / Central locking
Bodywork / Interior / Wheels etc
This 240 is finished in Metallic Dark Blue, colour code 406. The car was repainted in 2017, so as you would expected with a high quality paint job, it looks amazing. The quality of the paintwork looks fantastic, a lovely deep all over shine. The bodywork is free from any noticable dings or dents. Look closer, there is no rust or rust bubbles on this car, all arches are solid. Look underneath, all the sills, chassis are in excellent condition, inside engine bay, under carpets, its all just as good.
The interior is also finished in Dark Blue. The interior again is in excellent , unworn condition throughout. The headlining, seats, carpets, door cards, dash are all as good as you would hope to find, outstanding example.
The Wheels are obviously a modern upgrade. There are polished BBS style which really suit this car. All are in excellent , unmarked condition with excellent tyres.
Engine / Gearbox
The 2.3I ‘Red Block’ engine runs perfectly. This one has covered 112,000 Miles. It’s been over serviced as you can see from the history, no oil leaks etc. The engine bay is as well presented as the rest of the car.
The gearbox is a 5 speed unit. Gear changes are nice and precise, the clutch and flywheel have recently been replaced so have a lovely feel.
As I stated above, you will not find a better history than the one with this 240. Below is just a summary, the folders of history go into far more detail and it all goes back to when this Volvo was new.
Please see breakdown of service history below.
This is your chance to own a car that has been maintained by someone who price obviously wan’t an issue. He wanted an outstanding 240, no matter what the cost. This Volvo 240 is a fantastic car and is ready to be enjoyed now.
It will come with a YEARS MOT on sale.
