Volvo lovers, this may be one to check out. This 1967 Volvo 122S is on Craigslist with an asking price of $2,500. Hagerty lists a #4 “fair” 122S as being valued at $4,700. This one is located in the Dallas, Texas area and the seller’s phone number is from the Ft. Worth area.
There doesn’t appear to be any rust-through on this car, just surface rust, at least from looking at the photos here. There are a few little dings and the cracks and crevasses are showing rust.
The seller gives the following super-detailed description of this car: “1967 VOLVO AMAZON ANTIQUE CAR FOR SALE,VEHICLE RUNS AND DRIVE”. You may want to check this one if you’ve been looking for a 122S, and a two-door is the one to have, other than the wagon, or the four-door.. wait, that’s all of them. It seems too good to be true, I hope this one checks out. These folks, VP Autoparts, will have darn near anything you’ll need for this car.
The “Insurance Auto Auctions” watermark all over the photos tells me that, most likely, this car was bought at an IAA event and is being flipped. I mean, being sold.. But, the price is almost too low, isn’t it? You can see from the photos of the body how nice the exterior is and here’s the one interior photo showing a fairly decent place to sit. I’d take the seats and carpet out and look at the floors before doing anything on this one. Some underside photos would be nice. This car is cheap enough that it would be worth it to have an auto inspection company check it out, being $2,000 below the “value”. Here’s your new interior.
This is Volvo’s B18, 1.8L inline-four with twin carbs and around 90 hp. Again, this one runs and drives but no other info is given, unfortunately. This car has AC but I’m guessing that it isn’t working and it may be the least of your present worries with this car. Getting it back home and getting everything else working perfectly would be my first chore. Have any of you owned an “Amazon”? What do you think about this one, does that price seem too good to be true?
