Volvo 242 Coupè version DL (De Luxe).

This Volvo is in excellent original condition, it has only undergone one exterior repaint in the original Dark Brown 138-2 a few years ago and still looks very good. The interior, dashboard, B21A engine and all parts are completely original and the car has been driven for only 109,789 km since new. All plates are also in place. This is a “De Luxe” trim with all chrome-plated details and a chrome-plated grille, including additional bands and mouldings.

It is a rare Coupé version with a 107 hp engine still running on traditional carburettor fuel, which makes it a robust and reliable version to use.

The interior is original, code 2302 beige as per Volvo plate, and in excellent condition; the dashboard is intact as are all plastic parts. Look at all the rare and unobtainable details of this beautiful Volvo.

The car is solid and has always been stored in the garage protected from the rain; then it was purchased by a collector who has always kept it in his collection since 2012, without ever using it. In fact, the previous inspection was dated 2012.

In October 2021 it passed a technical inspection, which is valid until October 2023. However, it is a direct purchase from the previous owner and normal maintenance may be required in the future.

The feeler gauge test showed no accidents (as shown in photos).

A compression test gave great results (see photos).

Some videos of the car, driving and engine are available: please, contact Catawiki.
