Unknown year, six volt/generator system, non-overdrive, drum rear brakes, Volvo Amazon 122S.
No title so bill of sale.
After storing it for two years it is now mine.
Body is mostly strait, ding in hood and drivers door is damaged.
Tiny rock chip in the windshield.
Very little rust, chassis is good, very small holes in floor pans, original paint, engine turns over. Interior is poor.

$650 complete, *$500 if I keep the SU carbs for my TR6 Dio Tipo project.
If all you want are specific parts they will be the same price as I prefer not to put my labor into it.
Do want it out of the yard and I have some 14" tires that could be mounted to make it a roller.
I also have a forklift to make loading simpler.

Call Finnigan and Freiburger and they'll get it running and try to make it to NY.


Or, you and a buddy do it, with lots of pictures or videos posted here.wink

Sweet old crew cab.  Lots of the trim on these early cars is unique.  I'd buy it if it were closer.  

Hijack, if anyone's on the east coast, I've got one for sale, with half the doors and way more rust!

Also, FYI, they all had drum rear brakes.  Are the fronts drum, too?  IIRC they went to front discs in ~63 or '64.  Pre-disc cars are pretty rare in this country.

From this, it looks like you definitely have a very early car, drum front brakes.  Worth saving!

What, no LS swap plan yet?

Y'all are slipping!

Best swap would be out of a 240 turbo

Turns out to be a really early car, first six months of production.
Will be restored to original.
So a classic saved.
