Patina'd, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1967 Volvo 122 S Rat Rod offers some serious distinction in every crowd. And it has the strong motor and driving characteristics to let you drive out to any crowd.
The Volvo Amazon is one of the best designs to come out of the 1960s. Its unmistakably Swedish with sturdy lines, but the all the edges seem to be rounded with an artist's touch. However, on this example, people are going to be looking at the sheetmetal for a very different reason. It's a true patina car where the deep green has eroded with time to look like the mossy/rocky banks of a Nordic lake. And there's even a fresh clear coat on top to seal in this well-earned distinction. Plus, this has a true California cruiser look with the roof rack and bold red steelie wheels with two-piece bright trim. And those LED headlights help signal how thoughtful this total package really is.
The interior continues the true rad rod style. So they didn't touch places like the door panels, flooring, or leather seats. But like any rat rod, this is secretly rewarding for those who know where to look. For example, the added tach is quite handy to go with the four-speed manual transmission. While the radio has a retro look, it's a modern AM/FM digital tuner that can also hook in you iPod for the best in modern driving music. Plus, you'll also spot the controls for the full air ride suspension that lets you get that ideal street machine stance for wherever you take this Volvo.
The engine bay is ready for display. It's a tidy setup with newer components and an overall clean look. And we love how the high temp red on the valve cover matches the air grabbers. But what should really get you excited is this Volvo's correct 1.8-liter motor. These have an exceptionally robust reputation, and you're looking at a well-done dual-carb setup. It fires up readily and runs strong, so it's a true hardy Nordic warrior. You also have the right newer components, like an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this running cool, and newer bushings to add a confidently sharp feeling on the road. There's also front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear. Plus, those whitewall tires that look cool on the outside are actually masking modern sport rubber. So this lowered and patina'd Volvo is also a truly strong driver to enjoy near or far.
This is the perfect blend of custom, vintage, distinguished, usable, and affordable. You know you're supposed to pay a lot more for a head-turning classic like this, and so you also know how quick you have to be to snatch up this deal. Call today!!!
