Description for Volvo Other 1971

Re-listed due to non-paying buyer. Please be able to pay what you bid and review the payment terms and conditions before bidding.
Selling due to loss in family. Since, riorities have changed. Car has been sitting for the last 6 months and I hate to see it sit much longer.
  • Car is complete
  • Third owner
  • Original engine and transmission
  • 105K Miles
  • Car spent most of it's life in Southern California
  • Solid body
  • Strong engine (good pressure and compression numbers)
  • Weber carb convert
  • While running, ar is not road worthy yet. Due to on-going brake issues. Soft pedal/ weak pressure symptoms most likely cause by faulty master cylinder or a leak in the system somewhere?
  • Some of theelectrical still needs going over (mostly lights and gauges)
  • Restore far along but unfinished

Service Notes:
  • Painted to original Volvo color code 102: Steel Metallic Blue
  • Engine was pulled in 2014 for the bay and block painting
  • B20 engine painted tooriginalVolvo ‘Red Block' Red
  • Compression test results 03/2014 : #1: 149 #2: 147 #3: 159 #4: 163 (Factory spec for these motors were 180-190psi so these are healthy numbers considering its age. No big gap in cylinders indicates a good healthy engine also).
  • New Timing Gear
  • Upgraded Pertrionx electric ignition
  • Weber carb rebuilt
  • New OEM Bosch Starter
  • New fuel pump and filters
  • Radiator flushed and tested
  • Gas tank Boiled and treated
  • New Brake hoses all around
  • New calipers / pads all around
  • New Master cylinder
  • New rear rotors

Some things it needs:
  • Tires needed all around. This would be an ideal time to refinish the rims if you choose to keep the stock ones. I have a fifth wheel (without tire) for a spare.
  • New Battery
  • Wiper motor (might be anelectrical issue)
  • Washer motor
  • Some of theelectrical still needs to be gone over (mostly lights and gauges)
  • Brakessystemtesting and repair

Some assembly still needed:

  • I left the side trim off. The trim that came off the cars is an aftermarket style with rubber inserts. It's complete but you may want to return it to the stock style. Up to you. Note: I do have an original set that came off my other 71'. If you'd like I could swap sets. It's in fair condition, ome dings (can photo if interested). Would need to buy Mounting clips and set is missing the passenger rear quarter piece.
  • Upper Door weatherstripping (have originals but may want to replace)
  • I left the front bumper off as I prefer the look and found it easier to work on the car without it. I have it and will include.

You may notice in the background that I have another one of these cars. The two are nearly identical in factory specs. Same year, olor codes, tc. Only major difference the other car is a standard shift.Secondcar is not as far along. I do have a perspective buyer for it but nothing set in stone yet. If you're a collector or simply interested in both cars, ontact me for more info. For the sake of simplicity I would be willing to offer a combined discount.
