Around $2000 is my guess, but 240's are hot right now, you might get up to $8K if you find the right buyer and list it in the right places.

It's all about condition at that point. I wouldn't go more than $2,500 if the body is straight, interior is clean, and paint in nice shape.


I saw a 240 selling for 10k on CarsGurus. So... ranging from 3k to 10k I guess? But as Tom said, Volvo wagons are hot nowadays Volvos are great cars, I had an s60, and am driving a s80. Great choice
