The Volvo 245 DL Estate, part of the Volvo 200 series. It was produced between 1974 and 1993, during which time over 962,000 were manufactured. This 5-door estate version, registered TAY 999R, dates from 1976. Volvo cars, built originally to be driven in Sweden’s hard seasonal conditions, are famous for their longevity and solidity, with particular reference to overall occupant safety and road-holding. The 200 series, designed by Jan Wilsgaard, had a front engine and rear wheel drive and was classed as a mid-size luxury vehicle, coming often with leather seats and wooden dashboard. The steering was so reactive, one could turn on a sixpence – fond memories for those of us who owned one!
Decorated in bright green with contrasting silver trim and a beige interior. The instantly recognisable diagonal Volvo marque and radiator grille are reproduced in silver on matt black and other external detail includes black chassis, silver wheels, black bumpers with chrome edging and black windscreen wipers.
