1979 Volvo 240 Series 242 GT

Found on carfromuk - this example is believed to have been offered on Ebay a few years back.It looks in excellent original condition (At the time, it was asking under $10,000, so it was provbably around 2010).. Values have gone up a bit since then. Interestingly, this is the later 2.3 car, but has the older style anodised black mirrors (indicating there was probably a changeover period where they still applied the old mirrors to the updated cars).
