Swedish Monday – 1983 Volvo 240 Turbo

June 23, 2014

Fourteen years after Volvo transitioned away from the box as a template for their cars, it’s hard for many kids to remember a time where their kind were ferried around from soccer practice to camp to swimming in box-shaped people movers with spartan interiors, turbocharged engines if your parents were cool, and a public radio sticker in the back window. But from the late 1960s all the way through about 2000, this shape defined the Volvo experience, and it’s arguably more iconic than any other Volvo design, even if the others are prettier or more adventurous. You can find this 1983 Volvo 240 Turbo wagon for sale for $2300 in Portland, OR.
