BF Classified: 1964 Volvo 122S


Seller’s Description: 1964 Volvo 122s 4 door sedan, solid western car, excellent driving condition. The floor pans, trunk floor, rockers, and door bottoms are solid. The body has some dings and easily fixable dents. The worst dents are on the passenger side doors. The car looks to have been repainted many years back in the original “desert sand” finish, which is somewhat dull; might buff to a shine, I have not tried. There is a minor rust section about 2″ long on the right front door outside surface, looks easy to fix. The interior is originally red. The original shoulder harnesses are in good shape. I installed hi-back bucket seats for safety and comfort reasons; this was accomplished without altering any of the original seat-mounts. I have the original front seats which do need re-upholstering. Could use new door rubber seals, and side vent rubbers.

I am a retired auto-tech who has sorted out many items on this car over the last year. All of the window channels are new, and the windows crank up and down like new. The rubber seals (window scrapers) outside the windows are new. All working are: parking brake, lights, interior lamp, speedo & odo, all gauges, turn-signals, wipers, heater blower, and horn. The heater core has been bypassed. The headliner is excellent.​

The engine runs very well. It starts easily, does not smoke, is smooth, and peppy. Nothing leaks under the car. There is a new Sachs clutch, pressure plate, throw bearing, plus an upgraded neoprene rear main seal on the engine. The transmission is perfect, shifts beautifully through all gears. The exhaust system is good all the way back; the front pipe is new. Brakes work fine. Most of the front suspension has been rebuilt with new ball joints, tie rods, steering coupler, and an excellent steering box from a low mileage car. Car tracks straight. Front-wheel bearings and races have been installed. Also new is the battery. Recent tune-up and valve adjustment. New fuel pump. Transmission and differential lubes recently changed, even though the old lube looked fine.​

The wheels and tires are new. The wheels are 5.5″ wide, and the tires are Yokahama 195/65, which are a great match for the car in that the light, responsive steering feel remains. The original 4″ wide wheels go with the car. Also included are two sets of hubcaps. The stock hubcaps can be installed on the new wheels if preferred.

This is great driving 122s. It can be enjoyed as it is, or easily taken to the next level. $7,200 OBO​
