Description for Volvo 122 1967

Ive owned the vehicle for about five years, ive owned about a dozen other 122s over the last 40 years. I drove it around seattle for six months and transported to arizona where nothing rusts. I had professional mechanic install weber carb(I just rebuilt carburator, and secured new battery), electronic ignition, tune up etc. All brake, drive trai, front end in good shape. There were three areas of rust in floor boards about three inches wide I replaced with sheet metal. One near front left clutch petal, and two behind rear front seat. I lifted up carpet to show how I used sheet metal and screws to cover original hole. I did find one cross beam on front passenger side i did not repair. I didnt know how to repair it, but structurally did not effect ride, car always steered straight (refer to attached photos). I moved the car to the desert so rust pretty much stopped dead. The rest of under carriage was clean. I replaced all carpeting, and all paneling backing board was flimsy, so replaced with new and new coverings. I kept the originals but they needed repair. Seats have a few rips where stitching is falling apart. Dash cover is good. We did minor rust body work on front fenders with bondo, otherwise very clean car, sanded and repainted the interior and exterior. The car was originally very light green almost white. We put 7 coats of paint on exterior and about 3 on the interio, on all exposed visible painted surface in february of 2018, but we never buffed or polished paint after we completed paint job. This is first new paint job on vehicle in 50 years, new paint will last a long time. There is a little bit of over spray here and there but nothing that wont clean up quickly. I put a very large three row radiator in car and external fan that will switch on with switch on dash. This is for the extreme arizona summers. I put a separate temp gauge as original working but I didnt feel with 100% accuarcy. Everything else works on the car mechanically except, rear drivers passenger window chain fell off, and horn doesnt work, i purchased and installed new horns. (Hood latch pull wire broke, I open with vice grips but I have replacement wire never replaced) I have correct parts for rear window one just needs to reassemble. I took off rear hatchback handle for opening door off, but it connects right back in with cotter pin. I have new stereo and antennae but never installed radio. I have tons of part, rear bumper piece that will replace slightly bent current rear bumper. three alternators, three starters, two radiators, various sets of original su carbs, hea, manifold, etc all new ipd polyplastic front end bushing that i never installed, ball joints, etc front end and shocks in good condition. I have new parts for camshaft, push rods, special b20 distributor for added horsepower if desired. Tires should be replaced at some point. I also have chrome beauty rings, two beautiful side mirrors I havent installed after painting the car. Otherwise reliable car, in phoenix area, I have stored in casa grand. I rarely drove it except to remind myself of what I drove when I was 16 years old. Im always busy with computer work so never have tiem to complete project. Vehicle recently tuned and car is stored at Bullitt volvo repair in tempe arizona, a huge cache of spare parts sits 35 miles away in Casa Grande AZ. If questions Jake 415-933-1276I have spare low milage engine in tulsa oklahom, but this one has strong compression and good for a while. I can sell this engine separately it is not included in this auction. I have misplaced door key, so a new door key will have to be cut. It can be cut from rear hatchback handle lock all locks use same key. I wont accept phoney Nigerian cashiers checks, I tried once it didnt work
