1966 Volvo 122S Sedan

Transmission: Manual
Mileage: 68784 km
Colour: White

The Volvo company was founded in Sweden 1927 and iconic brand of vehicle that is renowned for its safety and its racing heritage in touring cars around the World. Volvo have stated that they will also be the first brand of vehicle that will have changed from full combustion engines to electric by 2023.
The Company also has a history of be brought and run by the companies like Mitsubishi Motors, Ford in the early 2000’s and from 2010 to today Volvo has been owned by Geely.
The Volvo 122s falls in the Amazon series and was built in a 2door, 4door and station wagon variant. This rare 4 door Volvo 122S is very original but still runs like clockwork, could even be a daily runner. The engine is a spritely 1.8ltr with its twin SU Carbs still feels like it has the full 86 horsepower, the 4speed gearbox is as precise as the day she was build. In her day is she would top out at 148km/h.
The Red seats and interior are still very neat, but some mods have been made and extra gauges have added neatly to monitor voltage, oil pressure and airflow to the carbs. I believe this was done because the owner had intentions of building a classic rally car, which these Volvo’s are known for and have been successful for in their class.
The ride is still great, and the car handles well but her down fall is the body, there are points where the paint is thin and a couple of places where its lifting.
Yes, this Volvo isn’t perfect but with some love and care she can come back to her forma glory.
