1978 Volvo 242 GT

The 242 GT is a pretty damn rare variant of the 200 series. It came with a higher-compression 2.1 liter, better suspension, and all US-spec models came in factory metallic silver with a stripe running from hood to trunk. Keith had been looking for a GT up and down the west coast before finding this example a few months ago 11 miles from home. It's been re-sprayed and is currently down with a blown head gasket, but he's planning on doing some minor fixes, swapping in a slightly bigger 2.3 liter, and letting her be. Check out the original corduroy interior! Thanks for showing me around, Keith.
