Some folks may not find them desirable but the market does value them as one of the most collectible 240s. At least that is what is written in my Volvo Buyers guide. The main difference in the USA models is the engine. Of course the euro models also got the good headlights. But both things could be upgraded on a US model and I don't think it would affect the value as you are bringing the car to rest of the world spec.
