Farewell To Our Volvo 122 Project


It was hard to do, but last week I said farewell to my 1964 Volvo 122. With two British cars in the garage and one of them in daily service, I have my hands full. And although I like to find cars that have been stored for many years, I don’t have the heart to let mine sit for too long. If I’m not working on or enjoying a car, it has to go! After getting the Volvo running we hadn’t done much with it, so I listed it locally and after entertaining numerous tire kickers, I ended up finding a buyer over in Washington. He had restored a couple of these in the past, so at least that provided some consolation. I would have liked to have gotten the car a little further along before cutting it loose, but at least it was left a little better than when we found it. Let’s just hope the new owner is gracious enough to send in an occasional progress update as this old Amazon returns to the road!

    Sorry for not sharing it here first. The sale was a quick and easy one to a guy who I think will take good care of it. I got $1,300 for it which I think was very fair for such a solid and original car.
