Gorgeous time capsule in excellent condition. Restored comprehensively.
This beauty was purchased by its third owner on Bring A Trailer website several years ago and has just had it thoroughly serviced including 4 new tires. The car is equipped with overdrive transmission for easy freeway driving and was completely insulated using Dynomat type material to improve passenger comfort. Here is how Bring A Trailer described this car:
This 1967 Volvo 122s was a Washington State car from new until when it was purchased its second owner. At that time it was listed here on eBay by Cascadia Classic. The third owner was the winner of the car and shipped it to his East Coast location. He says he is absolutely satisfied with the car, but happened to find a very rare Jensen CV8 that he has been looking for for some time, and bought so the Volvo had to go. With the sheet metal 100% rust free and original, this is a West Coast survivor car that's been cared for from day one and is now quite possibly the driest 122 in existence.
The car has had one repaint in its original color of Dark Green, code 94. This is a rare color to find on an Amazon and was only available from 1967-1970. The paint on the car is just a tick below show quality according to the seller, and it has a few touched in chips on the leading edge of the hood but otherwise is very sharp. The paint has excellent lustre and shine, application was excellent with no overspray, orange peel or runs. The body on this 122 is said to be very straight with no dents or areas of waviness. Tires are classic Michelin XZX's with good tread and no sidewall checking.
Both bumpers have been rechromed, and they're straight and clean with no dents or dings. Trim is all nice as well, and all of the chrome on the car is in good shape with no pitting. The windows are all original Sunex pieces in great shape. The windshield is a high quality replacement, it shows a little age but no damage. Lights and lenses are all in excellent condition according to the seller. The vintage WA plate in the photos is the one issued to the car in 1967. A clean trunk area with a correct replacement mat and side panels is nicer than on any 122 we have seen in person. The trunk exhibits no rust issues. The trunk carries the original jack and a partial tool kit.
The seats are all original and in excellent condition. The car has a set of vintage Coco mats that are custom fit for this car and in great shape. The rubber flooring beneath is all original with no areas of wear or cracking, uncommon for their age. Sill plates, door panels, hardware and weatherstripping are all good according to the seller. The back seat area is in line with the rest of the interior, just very well preserved. A nice stock steering wheel shows no cracks and the ashtray is unused. The heater and fan are very effective and blow very hot. A classic Bendix radio still works great, and all lights, signals, wipers and horn work correctly.
The dash pad is in excellent shape with no cracks. All gauges work, the car shows consistent operating temperatures according to the seller. The ribbon speedometer was apparently designed as a safety feature by Volvo; the more red you see the more caution you should exercise. The car comes with an owner's manual, radio instruction manual, and a rare Volvo accessory brochure.
The car runs very well according to the seller. An M41 overdrive transmission has been installed and gives the car much more freeway capability. The first thing we always wish for in any 122 variant is an overdrive transmission. The undercarriage shows IPD swaybars front and rear. Floorpans and rockers are very clean as shown in the gallery. A period roof rack is also included in the sale.
The condition of the car is excellent and is in the same condition today. These cars in this condition continue to appreciate and are solid rolling investments.
