Description

THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owner is this CLASSIC 1979 Volvo 242 two door sedan!
Finished in what looks to be mostly original baby blue over navy cloth interior, this thirty five year-old classic Volvo shows just over 97,000 miles on the intermittently working six-digit odometer [I cannot verify the actual original miles]. It sports a great running 2.1 liter four cylinder engine mated to a rare and desirable 4 speed manual transmission, working period-correct JVC stereo cassette, manual crank widows and more! It is being sold with clear and clean California title!
This is a great find about the cost of the sales tax alone on a new quickly depreciating Volvo sedan!
PLEASE CALL 650-307-2251 FOR QUESTIONS, TEST DRIVES AND/OR MECHANICAL INSPECTIONS.
THE BODY AND TRIM
As I hope is articulated in the many photos here, the exterior of this 1979 Volvo is in very clean 99.99% pure rust-free condition throughout! The paint has a deep lustrous finish with only a few minor imperfections including a cracked right front blinker lense along with some light scratches, parking lot dings, nicks, faded/acid spots and blemishes.
THE INTERIOR
The interior of this Volvo is in good very original condition throughout with most all functions and controls in excellent working order. Imperfections inside this car include a/c not blowing cold, broken door panel bins, slightly worn carpet area at drivers feet, a small heat crack atop the vinyl dash and the obvious tattered driver seat upholstery covering.
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This classic Volvo starts, runs, shifts, brakes and handles well with peppy four cylinder engine, very solid shifting transmission and excellent clutch pedal feel, straight and true braking and solid and stable suspension!
