The 240 was a sturdy machine, based in large part on the 1960s technology of its Volvo 140 predecessor. This one averaged more than 8,500 miles for each of its 30 years on the planet.
It will be crushed just a few miles from where it was sold when new.
Most of the 240s you'll see today are mid-to-late-1980s models with the B230 four-cylinder engine. These cars weren't as heavy as their blocky appearance made them seem (the 240 wagon weighed just a bit over 3,000 pounds, about the same as a 2017 Subaru Impreza hatchback).
It's not rusty, but the interior is well toasted by the harsh Colorado sun. There's a glut of good-running 240s for cheap prices these days, so a tired one isn't worth much.
