On Our Workshops Road-Test, There Was No Issues Found & We Was Very Impressed By Just How Solid This 1988 Example Feels On Both Rough City Streets & Faster Motorways


Reading Through The Impressively Large Service History File, It Is Obvious That The Vehicle Has Wanted For Nothing, Also Documented Is The All Important Timing Belt Change Carried Out At 45k By The Garage Who Has Maintained This 240 'GL' For The Past Seventeen Years 



This 240 'GL' Was Originally Supplied By The Volvo Main Dealership 'Perrys Of Canterbury' In Kent To A Mr Winskell of Herne Bay Who Dearly Loved His Brand New Volvo


The Vehicle Then Appears To Have Changed Keepers & Moved Into The Surrey Area, With The Current Keeper, Mr Clark, Enjoying His 240 'GL' For The Past Seventeen Years!

Dealership Branded Number Plates, Rear Window Sticker & 'Perrys' Boot Badge All Still Present
