It was this car that made Volvo's name famous throughout the world because of its good reputation for toughness and longevity. Not only that, surprisingly for a car with a relatively small engine to have performance that exceeded many people's expectations.

1967 Volvo 122S Amazon Coupe Interior

The Ad does not touch on the interior in writing, but it has 3 photos included. Of the three all focused on the front side, not represent all so we take this one as focusing here. Perhaps with this photo, you will see the 49-year-old interior still has its original beauty although wear was shown. At the very least, no rot is present, and would be great if all panel instruments were to be in work properly. Curious to see the rear end and headliner You should ask for them directly from the owner.

Detail by owner
Up for sale is my 67 122S. I purchased the car with the intention of making it a cool cruiser, but I can no longer afford to keep it.

The car has a history of documentation, including the original DMV papers.

  • Previous owner thinks that the B18 engine has been slightly bored out, with an aftermarket camshaft added.
  • Dual SU carbs
  • Brand new distributor cap, plugs, and clutch master cylinder.
  • Comes with a spare windshield, the current one has a crack, but I do not notice it when I'm driving.
  • Straight piped, very loud

The car is mechanically sound and drives well, but the exterior is rough. The floor pans are rusted through in spots, and 1 tire has a slow leak and needs to be re sealed. There is a parasitic draw I am trying to locate.
