Volvo 1961-2006 - 2018 Market Review
Volvo C70 convertible

Lots of variety here for fans of Volvo, Sweden’s most famous car-maker and hardly anything on the list that can be called ‘expensive’.

The only models to regularly exceed $20,000 are 1800 Coupes and 1800ES hatchbacks, any of which can in exceptional order top $35,000.

The very early 122S is undervalued and so are late 1960s-70s 140 Series cars. The 242GT nicknamed ‘The Roadblock’ at Bathurst in 1979 [although it still managed to finish] is worth $10,000 while the 850R that won races here and overseas will cost around $12,000.

Similar money buys a swish C70 convertible built in 2006-07 and we did see several earlier cars at under $5000.
