Post Volvo on the chopping block

The Volvo will end up with some high schooler next week unless someone wants from the forum. I'm asking $700 only because I see the stuff that is going for $500.

'84, 240D, 4 speed w/ OD, 277K (rebuild at 193K), AC (needs charged), brakes (needs vacuum pump valve rebuilt-not too hard- I took it apart the other day- costs around $100), smokes like non-other, hard starts but very smooth running, smokes under power, will NOT start below 35 degrees unless the block heater is plugged in, uses 1 quart per 700 or so, delivers 27-28 consistently, pretty good rust and one floor pan gone, PA car for first 9 years, I've had it the last 9. Regular oil changes but compression in a Volvo diesel is not like the MB's.

I wrote all the bad stuff, parts of it are pretty nice. Email for pics if interested. After writing all that stuff, I'm not sure $700 will hold.
