This is Myrtle. Myrtle is a WONDROUSLY preserved one-owner 1985 240 sedan with only 49k miles. We took these photos of Myrtle while parked in front of the garage it has spent its entire life inside!
Myrtle’s original owners purchased the car new on 6/27/1985 for $15,551 from Kansas City Volvo, trading in their 1974 Mercury Monterey, because, as their son said, “my folks read that it was the safest car on the road, and the Mercury was a terrible car that had to go.”
Myrtle legitimately drives like a new car… hands down, this is the best driving 240 we’ve ever had. Entirely unmolested, the car is not only in beautiful shape, but includes every record accrued during its ownership history, and even has the original flootmats inside it!
We will be sending this car off to our mechanic to have it gone through top to bottom, fluids changed, seals replaced, etc, but will make EVERY EFFORT to maintain its originality because everything about it is just perfect. While we do have a long wait list of folks who want our cars, we plan on holding on to Myrtle so we can showcase it at a few car shows around the country this year. Nevertheless, if you’re interested in Myrtle, please feel free to contact us!
