Hemmings Find of the Day – 1982 Volvo 240DL

Published in

Any car that has a reputation as a tank doesn’t exactly build that reputation by going 30-plus years without a scratch, ding, dent, or tear in the upholstery, but this 1982 Volvo 240DL for sale on shows that it’s possible to keep even the brickiest of bricks pristine and original with plenty of maintenance, TLC, and a good Swedish connection. From the seller’s description:

This car came from Canada and belonged to one owner who cherished this car and maintained it to the highest standards possible. There is a maintenance log with 270 entries. There are no aftermarket parts on this car, as everything used to maintain this car is original Volvo. The maintenance log shows the many awards and show appearances this car has logged. Built in Nova Scotia, it is a Canada Specification car with a carburetor with a manual choke instead of the fuel injection used on the USA cars. The interior is original and most of the paint is original. It has recent tires and the maintenance is up to date. The driving experience this car offers is exactly as it would have been if you were driving away from the new car dealership in 1982. The engine is quiet, uses no oil, and runs as it should. The clutch, transmission and overdrive are smooth. The brakes are responsive and everything in the car functions as it did on its first drive 34 years ago. This car was legally imported and has a valid Michigan title.
