1971 Volvo 142: IPD Built

IPD Volvo 142

If you’re into Volvos at any level, you likely know the Volvo tuning and performance shop IPD. The name always conjures up memories from my youth of the hot VW tuning brands like Neuspeed, Autotech and Techtonics Tuning, and IPD is right there among the most revered Swede speed shops. This 1971 Volvo 142 here on eBay is perhaps the ultimate example: this car was built and owned by IPD, becoming a rolling display case of the company’s capabilities. From the alloy wheels and lowered suspension to the IPD exhaust and aero bits attached to the body, this 142 is definitely not your Uncle Olaf’s Volvo, to steal a phrase from a classic Volvo advertisement. Even with a starting bid near $10K, this still a decent deal considering how much it’d cost to build a clone. Thanks to reader Jim S. for the find!

    I’m no uncle, but if I was this could have been one of uncle Olaf’s cars!. Sorry, Jeff :)

    This thing could be fun fun fun! A brick it is, live rear axle it has with the jouncy ride to match. But with the IPD build, might be a kick to drive.
