Volvo 242DL 1984 Coupe ~ approx idea of fair price?

Asked by Dec 01, 2011 at 03:27 AM about the Volvo 240

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm currently looking at a 1984 Volvo 242 DL Coupe one owner 93,000 miles. It's been sitting around under cover for 11 years. It looks in great shape. The dealer is asking $2800- for it.

Am I getting ripped at this price?

I have no idea how much these are worth. The condition is really good. Looks like the wiring harness, water pump and belts were replaced before is was stored. The fluids all look fine. The steering doesn't have any slack, the transmission shifts smoothly and the breaks feel good.

P.S. It's located in Los Angeles CA. Thanks

you're definitely not getting ripped off but you have to be careful with a car that has been sitting for that long, things harden up like belts, and gaskets so it could take some work.

make sure you get under the car and check the rockers.. dont just look... knock on them with your finger to see if it sounds solid of not. also check right behind the driver seat mount under the car because its a high rot spot
