Poorly written Craiglist ads can be annoying, but sometimes offer up big buying opportunities. Some sellers just don’t know much about a car and despite near everyone having a smartphone with camera some do not post up any useful pictures. The world is not made up of car enthusiasts or DT readers! V8 swapped Volvos usually command a healthy premium in the marketplace so it is very noteworthy to find one for sale under a grand in any condition. Find this 1985 Volvo 245 V8 wagon for sale in Stafford Springs, CT for $800 via craigslist.
The details are a little thin on this car so this is a bit of a short take. With only one picture in the ad, it doesn’t make for a great DT subject except for the exceptionally cheap price on a potentially cool ride.
The fuel injected 5.0 engine has not run in a couple years and the seller speculates that it has either a fuel or ignition problem. The car does not have a title and was last registered in state of CT. If you live in CT, a title is not needed on a car this old. Other states may have different rules so it may be more of a issue depending on where you live. The car needs to be towed and the seller is open to offers.
