We recently picked up this very nice 1979 Volvo 245 DL VIN VC24545M1263242 from a local auction. This car was listed as a donation. After picking up the Volvo we have it a quick once over before listing it here in eBay. First of all the car runs really well. After dropping a few gallons of fresh gas, she started up without any issues. We took it around the block and determined the clutch was holding strong, it shifted easily through all four gears and, the overdrive works with the flip of the switch. The brakes are strong with no pulling or pulsing. The suspension is comfortable with no noises when hitting pot holes. The Volvo appears to have been well taken care of. It has new Pirelli tires. The shocks appear to be recently replaced with KYB. The entire car was repainted at some point and it was rather well done. All of the door jam and rockers were sprayed. I believe the original color was Appalachian Blue. There was rust repair done at the back of the car on both the driver and passenger side that we had to clean up a bit. The car does have some dents and dings and a few areas where rust is starting to pop. The floors and undercarriage is in great shape. The interior is in decent shape for a 43 year old car. The driver seat will need to be repaired or replaced. The sliders are not working and the seat back is shifted a little sideways. Most of the electronics are working as they should, other than the heater controls. The temp is stuck in the middle and the vents are not shifting between defros vent and floor. Radio is working along with the wipers and horn. The rear license plate light will need to be replaced, we had to temporarily afix them to the hatch. The car is listed as a project but it would not take much work to bring it back to its formal glory. We are listing the car for 10 days and no reserve, so the highest bidder wins.

If you have zero or very low feedback, please contact me before bidding or I will remove the bid. We have simply had way to many non paying auction winners over the years.

The buyer is responsible for shipping or pickup of the vehicle. Philadelphia International is about 35 minutes from our location if you decide to drive it home. The car drives very well, so I do not believe it would be a problem to do a cross country trip. Just remember the driver seat is a little uncomfortable.

We are available Monday through Friday 9-5 and Saturday 10-2 if you would like to set up a time to see and drive the car.
