Description for Volvo 240 1983

1983 VOLVO 242 DL COUPE AT NO RESERVE

WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT FOR YOUR KIND CONSIDERATION A LIFETIME CALIFORNIA 1983 VOLVO 242 DL COUPE WITH CONSOLE MOUNTED 5-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. ONLY NON-ORIGINAL ASPECT IS THE REPLACEMENT OF STOCK WHEELS WITH NICE SET OF VOLVO 15" SCORPIUS BASKET WEAVE ALUMINUM SPORT RIMS.

I PURCHASED THE CAR IN SAN DIEGO, FLYING IN AND DRIVING IT HOME TO LAS VEGAS. IT RAN AND DROVE BEAUTIFULLY. ATTENTION WAS FIRST GIVEN TO THE EXHAUST SYSTEM (NEW CAT AND MUFFLER - $260) TO CORRECT SHORTCOMINGS. THEN I HAD THE SET OF RARE SCORPIUS RIMS INSTALLED. AFTER BEING GARAGED FOR A FEW WEEKS, I INTENDED TO TAKE IT FOR EXERCISE, BUT IT FAILED TO START. IT TURNED OVER PROMPTLY BUT WOULD NOT CATCH. I ASSUMED THAT MY MECHANIC WOULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE EASILY AND HAD AAA TAKE IT TO HIS SHOP. IN THE ENSUING MONTHS, HE HAD ME PROVIDE A LITANY OF PARTS WHICH HE PERCEIVED TO BE NEEDED. INCLUDED WERE:

NEW DISTRIBUTOR, IDLE CONTROL MODULE, RESOLDERING OF ECU BY SPECIALIZED ECU REPAIR SHOP IN FLORIDA ($193)

NEW FUEL TANK, NEW FUEL LEVEL SENDER, NEW OEM FUEL PUMP ($195) WITH FILTER, NEW FUEL RAIL, NEW FUEL INJECTORS, FUEL LINE RE-FABRICATED

RECEIPTS PROVIDED FOR ALL OF ABOVE. ALAS, THE NO START ISSUE STILL PERSISTS. I EVEN FOUND ANOTHER NUMBERS MATCHING ECU, BUT IT ONLY CONFIRMED ECU NOT TO BE THE PROBLEM. IN RESEARCHING INTERNET, I RECENTLY FOUND A CHAT ROOM REVELATION BY A GUY WHO SOLVED HIS SAME ISSUE WHEN HE DISCERNED AND REPAIRED A FAULTY GROUND WIRE. IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS THAT! I AM IN ESCROW ON CONDO WHERE I HAVE KEPT VOLVO STORED, SO TIME HAS COME TO PART WITH IT. INCIDENTALLY, THE MILES ARE WELL DOCUMENTED BY HIGH SCORE CAR FAX WHICH ALSO SUBSTANTIATES ITS LIFETIME CALIFORNIA HISTORY. THE KICK PANELS AND INTERIOR TRIM PIECES WHICH YOU MAY NOTICE ABSENT IN PIX ARE IN TRUNK. IT DOES NOT HAVE THE DOOR PANEL MAP BOXES. RADIO IS THE ORIGINAL AM/FM/CASSETTE PUSH BUTTON WHICH WORKS. A/C IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL. INCLUDED IS A NICE VALVE COVER WITH GASKET TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL DIRTY ONE.

AUCTION IS NO RESERVE. THE SUCCESSFUL BIDDER MAY ANTICIPATE OUR COOPERATION WITH DELIVERY TO SHIPPING AGENT INCLUDING THE PORT IN LOS ANGELES IF NEEDED. SHORT TERM STORAGE PROVIDED WITH COMPLIMENTS. YOU MAY CHECK OUR 100% POSITIVE FEEDBACK FOR ASSURANCE AS TO AUTHENTICITY AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. HAPPY MOTORING!
