1993 Volvo 240 Classic

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Swede, and after going to Volvo’s homeland back in May, I felt inclined to look around for one of the most famous models of their history, the 240. But this 240 isn’t any ordinary 240. This 240 Classic represents the final year of production for a car whose roots trace back to 1974. The 240 Classic was a numbered series of 240s representing the last 1600 vehicles built for the North American market. These were well equipped versions of the regular 240, with color keyed grilles and side mirrors, cross hatch alloy wheels and a numbered plaque on the dashboard. The Classic was offered in two colors, Ruby Red or Tropic Green Metallic. Available in both sedan and estate form, this 240 Classic sedan for sale in New Jersey is number 1444 and is equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox, sure to please back to basics motorists.

I’ve always been a fan of any car in its final year of production, as it often represents the ultimate expression or what sometimes might not have been the best design from the beginning. Over the years, the 240 became a bit more refined and luxurious, but never lost its reputation for safety and durability. At almost $13,000, this is steep territory for a used Volvo, but I haven’t seen a 240 Classic for sale lately, let alone one in good shape like this car. I liken these cars to the Swedish version of the W123 Mercedes. Just honest, no-nonsense vehicles that will last several lifetimes over if you take care of them properly. Perhaps, then, it is a small price to pay for longevity?

  1. Was cruising ebay last night and saw several 240’s in this price range, was surprised. Seems to me that not that long ago you’d see pretty nice 240’s in the $4k price range. Has something changed?

  2. @Sean Kelly – I think buyers are progressively becoming more emotionally driven in their purchases and are increasingly seeking “rare” or unique cars to stand out from the crowd.
