Volvo 1961-2008 market review

Older Volvos are scarce and some are gaining in value. A solitary P1800 coupe in our market at around $40,000 doesn’t indicate a trend but looking at cars in similar condition in Europe for up to A$80,000 confirms it.

| Past Blast: Group A Volvo 240T

A 242GT in decent condition may be worth $15,000 but other pre-1990 models remain in the $3500-7500 range.

Celebrating Volvo’s last big dash at motor-sporting glory won’t cost much either, with a 1990s 850-R worth $10-12,000.
