OK, so $250's the starting bid. Still, looks like a very clean slate for someone to do something cool with.

'68 is still carbureted, and the B20 is a nice little torquer of a 4 banger. First of the lego-brick-square Volvos.

If you can't handle a 2 foot long shifter rod you're not a real man. ;-)

I could use that for parts, but it's too far away.

Any reason why they'd push the brake cylinder out like this?

So the distributor isn't blocked. Points ignition, frequent service item.

These cars don't need power brakes, though. Easy to convert to manual brakes.
