I just purchased a 1988 Volvo 240 DL and I need to know if it is front or rear wheel drive. I'd go out to the driveway and look, except that the car won't arrive for several days.

Any help would be appreciated.

Awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm sure I'll be back as we put this thing through its paces!

You just bought one of the most durable and owner-friendly cars ever made. Keep the oil changes and other maintenance on schedule, and it should last well over half a million miles. One of my prior 240s had 650,000 miles on the clock when the odometer quit. We gave it away still running well a couple of years later with who knows how many miles on it.
