A few months back we featured a cheap Volvo 240 sedan (244) that had a small block V8 attached to a 3-speed manual gearbox. It wasn’t a bad build, but strange that the Muncie 3-speed would have been selected as the transmission, but who cares, it was cheap. A few months later and it is for sale at a new place a few hundred miles away with new shoes and for more than double the earlier price. Find this 1979 Volvo 244 V8 offered for $12,500 in Chino Hills, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
