Looks like a fine project for the mechanically inclined - a fine "wintah beatah" (winter beater). Losing some clear coat on the trunk but the seller says no rust and runs good. Interior looks good.

I have no relation to this puppy. Would consider it but don't have the time to spend on fixing it.
It’s not a wagon so it can’t carry wood, Dave

Also -500 points for covering the rear plate and forgetting to cover the front
That kind of "can't do that" shows you're not from Maine.

Plenty of room in there to carry wood, between the trunk and the back seat. Lay the seats down and you could probably get half a cord in there. Just get a blue tarp at Marden's to go down first to protect the rug and seat back. No problem.

Before my 850 took it on the roof from the falling limb, I routinely used it to stock pheasants. We'd meet up with the breeder's truck and I could put 4 wire-bound wooden boxes (5 pheasants per box) in the back seat. Just laid a blanket down first to protect the seat. Game warden, looking it ovah, said it was the first time he'd seen a Volvo used to stock pheasants, not that there was anything wrong with that.

A very sentimental 240 post, which includes a post script reposting of a different Volvo Craigslist ad that the seller considers to be the greatest Volvo Craigslist ad of all time (from 2013!). Very meta.

$300 for an 83 240

Wow, that's a long one... but it looks like a good project. That's a lot of rust though.

Looks like a nice one! I just find anything more than $3k for a P80 hard to swallow... but being a clean cream yellow, the price makes sense.

Also if I had a nickel for every time someone mistakenly called that color "Gul yellow"...

This yellow sedan keeps getting re-listed over and over on MPLS CL, I have seen it off and on for at least 18 months now. It looks decent but yeah the asking price matches with the number of re-listings ...

Gotta ask: how can this guy be so sure there are only like 70 live titles of the yellow car's special characteristics?
