Volvo 240 GLT

Because my white ’86 Volvo 240 DL was still suspended (for road taxes and MOT) and the car will need some new parts (like new seats) I was looking for a cheap 240 which should have a nice interior. At a forum a nice 240 GLT was for sale for a very low price. It needed a lot of work but that wasn’t a problem because the car should be a donor car for my ’86 Volvo 240.

After buying it and driving the car home it appeared the wipers didn’t work (only in the fastest position). After solving that problem at home I started to inspect the car very well: the car wasn’t that bad at all! To be honest: it would be a terrible idea to strip this Volvo 240 GLT! The car just needed some extra attention and interior parts. After replacing the control arm of the wipers I started to buy the missing interior parts. The 240 GLT was turning into a nice car without any problems at all! And it appeared the car just was serviced. No way I wanted to strip this car, and after a new MOT (without any problems at all) I sold the car to a forum-member.

Below you can find several images of my Volvo 240 GLT sedan. The car has nice Virgo wheels (standard at the GLT-series), blue Pullman upholstery, headlight wipers, central locking, M47 5-speed gearbox, B230 engine with Bosch LH Jetronic fuel injection system and a towbar. Click on the images for a larger version (will open in a new window/tab).

The rear view of the Volvo 240 GLT sedan, the roof and trunk had a bit of damage and a problem with the varnish (it comes off). I replaced the body panel of the trunk and it looked much better!

In the interior there were also some parts missing, but I found them at a local Volvo specialist (but not shown in this picture). I really like the blue Pullman upholstery of this Volvo 240 GLT

Another side view. This gray color isn’t the best color for a Volvo 240 in my opinion, but the Virgo wheels matches the car pretty well

As you can see the rear lights are pretty dull, a very common problem of the Volvo 240

The Pullman upholstery is really nice in a Volvo 240, in my opinion even better than leather seats!
