used car of the day 1991 volvo 240

Today's UCOTD is a 1991 Volvo 240 that's the proverbial "driven only to church" car.

The seller's aunt has had this car for over 20 years and there are 169,000 miles on the clock. The seller says it's been maintained by pro mechanics, has always been garaged, and has a clean title. Its sale is part of an estate sale.

There isn't a lot of other detail on the car, but it does look fairly clean in the photos.

This could be a fun car to drop an old V8 in, especially if it has a manual. Just sayin'.

This ride is in Oregon and the asking price is $3,000.

    TASSOS' AWESOME, SCREAMING BARGAIN CAR OF THE DAY FIT FOR AN EMPEROR, NOT JUST A KING, for a mere $7k (!!!!!!) (Sorry, it just sold)

    And it is even 8 years YOUNGER than the utter POS Tim proposed to you.

    THE PINNACLE OF THE S CLASS. THE V 12 Coupe, a bit shorter but much more expensive, and much more rare than the sedan. In Worthless Idiot Joe Biden 2023 dollars, these MASTERPIECES cost a COOL QUARTER MILLION US DOLLARS NEW.

    A GREAT Collectible Masterpiece, for those who HAVE a clue.

    Auto Illiterates need not reply. (hint: those are the clowns who cannot appreciate AUTOMOTIVE GREATNESS).

      That's the only S Merc I ever liked. $7100 is not bad for the down payment to own this Merc.

    "always maintained by professionals"

    • Ford Motor Company has always been maintained by professionals

    • The Titanic was always maintained by professionals

    • Number four reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant... always maintained by professionals

    Why all the hate??? These were good cars. A bit slow, but beats walking.
