Volvo 240s on car sales
Critic's report -
79 242GT, 338K km, manual, asking $19,000
This GT is way overpriced, IMHO. Seller admits the A/C isn't working, so the new owner will be lucky to get that sorted for under a grand. There's either an alternator / wiring problem or a problem with oil pressure (see pic), it doesn't appear to have real rego, and the pile of receipts is suspect (why is the top receipt for a rebuilt of an M47 by Berry's, when these things have the M46 from factory?) $19K cars shouldn't have these issues. Real rego in New South Gilead is going to set the owner back at least another $1500 or so, plus fixing anything picked up on inspection. IMHO, given the high mileage, and only because these things are getting rare, $10K is a fair price for this unit, with 12 months of real rego on it - conditional on the rear beaver panel not being rusty under the top rear rubber bumper lip.
1990 245, white / blue cloth, M47 manual, 259K, asking $12,500
Premium prices can be asked by premium cars. Things like the lack of real rego and this centre console trim (wrong colour, and missing its little basket) take the polish off the premium price being asked. No mention is made about the aircon, although it's fitted. Sure, it has 16x6.5 wheels from a 960, and lots of speakers, but they doesn't make a 7 grand car with them and rego in a 12.5 grand one without it.
If I had this amount of money to spend, I'd be more tempted by this example - a white / blue cloth 1993 245 AW70 with A/C, power windows, only 143K km, and with 12 months real rego in New South Gilead, with a $15K ask. While the 93 is an auto, it does has the advantages of a superior AC system which is confirmed working, power windows, the later type of cargo area windows seals with drainage dimples (so trapped water doesn't rust out the tops of the rear quarters), plus it has 100K km less than the 1990, which will end up being the same price as the 93 once it gets real rego. Given the low kays, the 93 is closer to being a 12.5 grand car than the 90 will be, IMHO.
Oz Volvo National Meet 2018 - Canberra ACTI'm aiming to push off from the Wallan BP (1015 Hume Fwy, northbound) at 9:30 on Friday morning.
Meet me there or maybe see you further up the strip.
If we get off the Spirit of Tasmania on time and through Melbourne peak-hours traffic okay, we might meet you there. Missus and I will be in the dark blue 780.
[sold][carsales] 1994 940 GL - $12,250 (NSW)
[racecarsdirect.com] 240 Turbo Group A #604 (AKA #504), $POA [Falkenberg, .se]https://racecarsdirect.com/Advert/Details/86960/volvo-242-turbo-group-a
First built in 1985, this car is best known as the Mauro Baldi / Peggen Andersson "electronics" car, which ran in the latter rounds of the 1986 ETC. It is a factory built and refurbished Volvo Motorsport unit.
It won the Finnish Group A championship in 1987 in the hands of Leif Wiik, and is presently owned by the legendary Peggen Andersson.
Price on application by serious buyers, as this one will be priced significantly more than the 240s you find on Gumtree.
T5 transmission $650
Without knowing the tag number, you won't know if you're getting a bargain or ripped off.
Ex-AU is best fit for 700/900, ex-BA can be used otherwise, V8 or turbo.
Ex-EA-EL V8 is best fit for 240.
Ford 6-pot boxes will have a unique-to-OZ input shaft that requires lengthening to work with the DeeWorks kit.
Oz Volvo National Meet 2018 - Canberra ACTIf there's to be a Tas Nats done successfully, over and above everything else which needs doing at a gig like this, we would also need to organise -
- some sort of hotel / B&B / camping deal
- some sort of package with ANL, for the Spirit of Tas
- a generous event sponsor (or two)
We'd also need to have it at a time of year which isn't going to be high demand season, as space upon The Boat can get rather difficult to find at school holidays, any big meeting at Symonds Plains / Baskerville, near Targa Tas time, and around the time of the Tasmanian round of the rally championship.
