1975 Volvo 244DL

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Volvo’s 200 se­ries cer­tainly turned heads in pe­riod with its chis­elled, bla­tantly safety con­scious frontal styling, but de­spite the Swedish maker’s famous anti-cor­ro­sion treat­ments, early cars aren’t a com­mon sight. ACA’s car had lasted well and had just 70,000 miles on the clock. The body and (very or­ange) paint were good, with the door bot­toms show­ing no sign of the bub­bling that can set in. Bon­net and doors closed as if the car was new, and a look in­side con­firmed how well built these cars were. The seat fac­ings, in an un­usual shade of green, had lasted very well, there were no cracks in the dash­board and en­tert­in­ment was pro­vided by an orig­i­nal-fit 8-track player. A big, bright, cheer­ful and re­li­able buy – the punter who waited un­til the sale’s end was well re­warded – and for less than £3000.
