When you deal with a car that falls into the "enthusiast" category, and 240s certainly have an enthusiastic following, there seems no end to the small world stories. This car was built under contract to a cycling enthusiast in Seattle. A huge long list of upgrades and appearance improvements really made this a stunning wagon. The new owner enjoyed it for awhile, but eventually found he needed something different and sold it. Sadly, the vehicle was involved in a serious accident shortly thereafter and was totalled. A friend of ours near Portland purchased the car at an insurance auction. We bought the suspension back from him and the parts lived on in other Wagonmeister vehicles!
