This is a Michigan-owned 1990 Volvo 240 sedan in need of repair now due to long-term storage. Currently it is not in running condition. It was a very solid, good running vehicle which was parked in order toperform routine repairs and service. It was owned by a local man who was a machinist, and had thecar serviced routinely by one of Detroit's best Volvo mechanics (Fine Tune Auto). This car has an excellent 4 spd automatic "overdrive" transmission - worth as much or more than the asking price of this sale. The motor was also very good - and still could be with servicing and now minor repair. The basic mechanics are solid and original throughout the car. The worst thing about the car is the paint now - which is primarily a clearcoat problem, the damage being to the upward-facing surfaces.

The underside of the car still has the factory undercoat in place, the only real rust evident being to the exhaust system. You may be able to find spots ofsurface rust on unpainted/uncoated mechanical parts - but no major rust or structural damage.I bought the car originally because of its good condition - then I was forced to leavethe project unfinished due to family issues.

The motor turns over perfectly today - having been both fogged and oiled prior to storage - just like a boat motor.

This Volvo was in the midst of a complete brake job when it was parked. The original parts are still with the vehicle. It also needed a waterpump, and now will need a battery. I would invest in a complete ignition tuneup, also. The tires are no longer safe for road use due to storage,the vehiclenowneeding to be towed via flatbed - or trailered. The vehicle is located on a major road in the northeast Detroit suburbs - in between I-94 and I-75. If you wantthis cartransported - you will have to arrange this yourself. I have no experience in shipping autos, sorry.

This sale is for a repairable or parts car, as shown in the photos and as described. All my ebay sales are final. The price on this sale should make this adecent investment. -The transmission alone is worth more than the asking price for the entire car. Best to you all, Rrrustyron
