Plan Ahead, You’ll Be Here For A While: 1980 Volvo 245 DL Diesel

When the auction first launched for this next car, I sent an email to DT’s resident Volvo expert CFlo and asked him his thought on how much the car will sell for. His reply a week ago was spot on; maybe $6k to $7k? This diesel is super gutless. It’s literally the 6-cylinder version of the 1.6 NA diesel that was in your old Rabbit. Volvo bought the engines from VW. Imagine 50% more power than your old Rabbit! OMG 75hp. Did you ever ride in the one I had (blue 84 wagon)? It was awful. In CA this 1980 ebay wagon would be desirable because smog exempt, but not sure if anyone cares on the east coast. Nice condition though. Find this 1980 Volvo 245 DL Diesel bidding for $6,350 here on eBay with less than one day to go, located in Glen Burnie, MD.
