1979 Volvo 240 Series 242 GT

This is one of the saddest 242 GTs we've seen. Located in Sydney, Australia, it was asking $1500 AUD in May 2023.. It has severe rust, and you'd have to be a very serious enthusiast panel beater to want to take it on and restore.. I suspect that sadly this example won't see a rebuild, but will likely be parted out or bought for parts on another more solid project base. Anyway, it's great to be able to at least record this Australian delivered example before it possibly disappears forever! Check out the other 242 GTs on Classic Register - and we've also got a great 242 GT information guide.
