The Volvo 240 series is a classic in it's own right, this Volvo - like all Volvos - was built to last. This 240GLT was the top of the range model with sport wheels and is extremely reliable and still one of the safest cars on the road today. It seats 4 adults comfortable, although the boot is not that large. You like them or hate them, this was the most popular Volvo produced, during the 19 years of production which was stopped in May 1993. Over 2.8 million 240s were built.
