Hi all ,,,does anyone know how much my 244 is worth?? i may do the unthinkable...
Anymore info on the car? Man/auto? Colour? Rust? Pics?
I bought a rough 76 for $150 but spent a lot more on a tidy 75 242.
was hoping $5000 !! probably the cleanest 244 in the country has rust near rear tail lights not much at all its near the join,,,,, a bit in pass rear door, that door isnt original thats why its only in 1 door.. very small hardly notice it and 1 spot near drivers rear quater window had head done some time back....
auto air steer air needs gasing
5k is a big number. It really had want to be something special. Unfortunately, these things aren't worth as much as they should be.
Do you have pictures?
I like how you say cleanest then list all the rusty bits , needs gas etc etc....
I sold my 1978 245 Wagon for $1150. Its had 128,000 Ks on it and not around the clock either.
The paint under the bonnet was mint!
Its not worth that.
oh well best keep it then !! i saw a wagon on gumtree for $6000 dont know if they got it,, mines insurred for quite a bit.
Pictures and info? We could certainly help you value it..
Regarding remaining plus $500 is likely to be the realistic ballpark. Sorry.
I have a 1977 244DL I'm restoring. It had rust in the places you mentioned. I got it for free, and it was a one-owner car with 160,000km on it. If it were a super mint 244 with absolutely no rust the right buyer might pay $5000 for it, but as is it's probably not worth much. If the rust is very minor you could get a couple grand for it though.
I payed $2500 (then got $300 rego cash back) for my one owner original 75 242 with only a tiny patch of surface rust in the corner of the windscreen. I don't think many 240s sell for more than that these days and I consider myself a bit silly for paying it but I do love the car.
I'd say $1000 is realistic money for yours.
Hi james i got the gear box off you,,, hope yours is coming along good, you really are putting in a gr8 effort on it.. where ever i go i get comments on mine,, the volvo agent loves mine he says its like its off the factory floor, the rust is stuff all and the average person cant even see it.....best of luck with yours......
OK now we really need to see photos!
I have a strange feeling that I have said that twice.. ;)
Oh it's you! With the nice 740? If the 244 is anything like your 740 it should be pretty nice.
Yep its me !! with 740 the 244 is as good if not better, howz your reno goin?
