1988 Volvo 240 GLT Auto

The vendor has supplied the following information.

"Everyone wants to please their Mother so now is your chance.

Clothed in Wedding Morning Suit Grey a 1988, smooth running, automatic, safe as houses solid piece of Swedish engineering so popular it enjoyed a 20 year production run and 2.8m buyers weren't wrong. You don't need to tell your mum about the 2.3ltr petrol engine nor the sports alloys on all 5 wheels nor the go-faster embellishing sticker surrounding the cabin and trims along the sides nor the twin spots at the front. We don't need to worry her.

There is more service history than you can shake a stick at with 17 dealer stamps etc. From 1988 on these veritable chariots enjoyed partial galvanised bodies to go with the galvanising 133bhp performance and the best anti-corrosion protection of all the 200 series Volvo cars.

The battery has been replaced in the last few weeks. The tyres have tread to enable you to make an impression on many long future rides out. The front windscreen is demonstrating its age. As we all grow older the optics become mistier. Still the delamination is marginal and who amongst us doesn't need their reading glasses so we can't judge too harshly.

It runs on the recently fashionable petrol so the emissions won't trouble the MOT inspector who won't need troubling again for several weeks (MOT to late June).

The tongue-twisting yellow leather interior is comfortable but not unmarked but it has been sat on for less than 90,000 miles. The retractable aerial ascends as and when it should and you can dig out your old cassettes you spent so long recording and trying to avoid the DJ talking and enjoy them again. Dry boot with tools and full alloy spare comes with the rest of this fine motor. Sounds so good, I've no idea now why I am parting with it. Enjoy it!! "
