Volvo 240 & 260 brochures

This page contains the brochures of the Volvo 240 and 260-series cars.  Every year Volvo made a new brochure for the new modelyear Volvo 240 or 260. The modelyear starts in August and ends in July (when the summer break in Sweden started). For example: a Volvo 240 that has been produced in September 1987 has modelyear 1988 and a 240 that was build in April 1988 also has modelyear 1988.

The brochure of a Volvo 240 or 260 is a 20 or more pages promotional book about the car and a flyer is a small booklet with a maximum of 14 pages (in most cases Volvo used a 6-pages flyer). Also leaflet with just one page were used (front and back printed, so actually 2 pages).

The owners manuals (instruction books) of the Volvo 240 and 260 can also be found on this page.

I also uploaded a lot of advertisements that Volvo used for the Volvo 240 and 260-series. Most of the ads are used in the USA and Canada. And as a nice bonus: some road tests of the 240 and 260 can be downloaded on this page.

All brochures, owners manuals and other documents are in PDF-format. To open a Volvo PDF you’ll need Adobe Reader (or any other program that can open PDF-files).

 

Volvo 240 & 260 brochures, flyers, ads and owners manuals

Because there are a lot of modelyears I combined all the brochures, leaflets, flyers and owners manuals in one table, sorted by modelyear. In case there are other languages than English are available you can find the other language in the column that has the flag of the country where the document has been used. The instruction books for the Volvo 262, 264 and 265 can be found at the next paragraph. Just click on the flag for the brochure, flyer or owners manual in the prefered language and for the ads: just click on the number. All items will open in a new window/tab.
