Default Volvo 240 2.0

Hi there,

On the hunt for a first car... Dad and I have decided upon a 240 2.0/1.9. So if anyone knows of any for sale, give me a shout. I'm located near Salisbury, Wiltshire if that helps. Budget of around 1000. Cheers!

I might do yes, we shall see what pops up. There's a nice 240GLE on Gumtree for 695.

I think that's the one Terrortech is selling in the for sale section.

Good choice of first car! ...and good luck with your search!

I did get into contact with an owner of a 240GLT, 1988 yesterday. It was advertised back in January by 'Mike and Eds', so, we'll see where that goes.. Silver with black leather interior. Just waiting on receiving photos..

I'm 6'7 ish, and my late grandfather had a Volvo 245 for about 15 years when my Dad was growing up. Dad told me he used to hold the steering wheel between his legs whenever they went on holiday and clean, pack, and light his pipe all at 50/60mph. That was all being done whilst towing a 16ft dinghy, 2 canoes on the roof, 2 children, 2 dogs and a campertent in the boot.. There's a good pub story for you!

Had a chat with insurers, best bet to go would be with a GL or a GLE.

Had a GL estate when I was 17 (8 years ago). Was a beast. All my mates had Saxos and Fiestas which may have been quicker but none of them could stick it full broadside on a roundabout.

My day of glory was when one of my mates who took the ****, called me up because his garage had collapsed and they desperately needed a hand taking stuff to the tip. I was the only person with a car big enough. HA!
