HISTORY: The Celebration model was the run out, so final, version of the 940 model before the V series were introduced. Accordingly, it was well equipped, details below. This particular example has covered 133322 miles and has a total of just 4 owners from new. The last owner purchased the car from a close friend, both of whom had the car well maintained, and the friend purchased it from the first owner, all in the Shropshire area. The last owner found and posted me the original handbook and provided many service and repair documents. I have researched the MOT history back to 2006, when the mileage was just 28000 miles, so I'm happy that the recorded mileage is correct.

MAIN FEATURES & EQUIPMENT: 2.3 Low-Pressure Turbo Petrol Engine; 5 Speed Manual Gearbox; Part-leather Trim; Heated Front Seats; Electric Windows Front and Rear; Tow Bar with Electrics; Uprated rear gas shock absorbers; OE Radio/Cassette Player.


We provide a comprehensive warranty with this car.


Generally very good with only minor blemishes commensurate with age and mileage. There is a minor dent on the offside rear wheel arch and a little paint cracking on the nearside front wheel arch – see images on our website.


Clean and undamaged. Previous owners non-smokers.

AIR CONDITIONING: Fitted to this car but not blowing cold.

Older cars are often fitted with air conditioning and an increasing number of them do not function properly in this respect. Therefore, we do not include air conditioning in our pre-delivery inspection, nor do we cover this item under our warranty.

If you particularly wish for the air conditioning to be functioning, please discuss this when you view the car.


By appointment please telephone or email me to make arrangements. Postcode TA21 9ND.

I spent many years managing Volvo dealerships and retailing Volvo cars during the 1980s and 90s when this model was still being sold new! I have also rallied a Volvo 360GLT and 244GL, completing the Lombard RAC Rally twice. I also currently rally a Classic Volvo 240GL in Historic Events and write a regular article for the Volvo Enthusiasts Club.

I also have over 40 years of experience in the motor trade and I only stock genuine cars with service history.

I can be contacted through email, or by text or telephone to 07792883103 or telephone 01823 244044.

If you need any more information or have a question, I look forward to hearing from you.
