Default 242 GT register

COUNT: 38

Out of approx 22,000 242s, how many were GTs?

Numbers by country would be cool...

Canada: TB count - 6 (estimated 200 in black)
US: TB count - 21
UK: none
Sweden:?
Norway:?
Germany:?
Netherlands:?
Australia: TB count - 6 (338 registered in Aus - according to Volvo club of Victoria)
NZ: TB count - 5 (8 in total)


Who cares? Well they are climbing in value over here, especially coz we got B23 with H cam and there are'nt many left. No other 242s ever made it here.

Anyway, thought this may be of interest to others with a GT. Post your chassis number, country and pics here and I will update the list.

I don't have vins but I have

1979 242GT
1980 242GT

I also had a black 1980 242GT that rusted away

I've also found a prestine black 242 at a JY 15 years ago that they wouldn't sell. I stripped it.

For your numbers sold. I've heard a rumor that 200 black 1980GTs were sold in Canada that year. I work for Volvo, but I don't think there is any way for me to find out if that's accurate or not. But there certainly aren't many.

I've scrapped 3 personally and seen probably close to 50 in the junk yards over the last 20 years.

My son currently has a 79 non sunroof GT. I'll get the VIN off it later.

I just scrapped my rusty 242 GT, oh well, I'll find a nice rust free example one day!

It will live on though as wall art next to the Amazon Coupe! This thing literally had nothing on it, not even a single bolt! Susepsion = cores for coil overs, sterring rack = cores, calipers = cores, etc. etc. etc.

No these thing was rotted everywhere! Previous owner hid patch panels very well too! It was rotted in both rocker panels, the passengers side wheel well was ten times worse and the truck was rusted the seams met behind the bumper! But I'm at peace with it, I saved far more off the car then most would have! Kept this side for the wall art bc it was the better side! Still has a 2' rust hole on the drivers side, but I'll make it work!
