It's Greg's car. The description matches. He worked at Lawrence Park Motors in Toronto. I have pictures from NJ.

Yes. The car looked great when I last saw it. I realy like the powder coated wheels and the ride height. Greg told me the front springs came from an ABS car. I'll see if I can find the pictures I took in NJ.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEET 242 GT FIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You should just fix what small things need fixing, and leave it 100% original.

And good finds like yours always cost more. But usually end up being cheaper in the long run, as all the hard work is already done.

Congratulations on that beautiful 242GT

Good to see it went to a good home. I looked at that car a few years ago, but did not have a garage, and commuted up and down gravel roads. It was way too nice for that. Now I have a garage and live on paved roads, but no money for another 242. Nice car.

beautiful car! mind sharing how much you paid? Its hard to gauge the market since really clean ones don't come up for sale often.

Nice
I'd love to see if it always looked like this or if there was some kind of evolution
And if he wants to talk about the car I'll be more than happy

Thx!
No worries. Like I said before I have no intention in changing anything

And for those who want to know I payed 6800$ for the car. It's a lot, but putting any of my current 240's anywhere near the condition of this one would have cost me double and it still would not have been a GT...

Looks excellent.
Needs less switches, less goofy grab handle and less silly seat coin pocket thingy, but these things are all signs it's been owned by a volvo enthusiast who cared about it, so definately a good buy.

This is Moisely's old car. I almost bought it from Yves two years ago , but this Rick person had a deposit down already. I believe he paid 6k for the car. Wish I had known about it sooner. I've followed this car since the Killington VCOA meet in 1994.
Good luck with it. It has all the right mods.

I also found on of my 2 fog light switches is there just for the looks

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY!
Can anyone tell me if a Canadian Spec 242 GT is supposed to have a cathalytic converter?
When did they first appear?

I have an OEM Volvo rear window louver in plastic/ABS or whatever Volvo used, for 240 sedans without the 3rd brakelight. yep OEM, says VOLVO right on the lower DS of the louvers.

Interested?

Tempting but I think for now I will use these

They need refinishing to be worthy of the GT though ... maybe plastidip...

I think they were Episcopalian conversion, but they might be cathalytic.
