I live in Washington DC, I was driving home last November from southern Maryland and i saw this interesting Volvo - glad i had a camera with me. Can anyone identify it? or pass me onto more information about this model?





Cheers

Its an old 240 Series Volvo. Some of them were turbocharged. You can find out more about them on the RWD forum here on Swedespeed.

Yep, it's a 240.

There are lot's of these old Volvo's out here in California.

Some are even camouflaged...

Like the one in the photo below...

It was spotted traveling West on Interstate 80.

I believe it was returning to the People's Republic of Berkeley

It's a 1982 244 Turbo. Does not have the intercooler, which wasn't introduced until MY83.

Actually, it looks like an '83 model. The 82's had larger bumpers. Intercoolers were in 1984-1985 models, and perhaps some 83's.

You are correct... it is a 1983. I guess my brain is starting to show its age.
