Minuses
Small rust through in front floor - This is a rare black interior wagon with factory rubber floor mats which held moisture against the floor.
Minor rust through in top of front fender (very common for these cars), and right rear wheel well
Needs complete interior - NM sun and heat ate it.
Dent in hood and snout - have spare hood which can go with carChrome on roof rack is peeling.

After a Rip Van Winkle slumber, this car will undoubtedly need TLC, some driving, and some maintenance. It is not your normal worn out rust pig. Nor is it a car you can jump in, drive daily, or head to California without nagging old car issues which will undoubtedly crop up.
Ideal for full restoration (virtually everything is available from VP-Autoparts.com, a Swedish company with a U.S. outlet), or throw some cheap blankets over the seats and drive her the way she is.
Have many NOS Volvo parts which could be used in restoration like new front fenders, headlight bucket assemblies, parking light assemblies, tail light assemblies, rear upper hatch lock, tune up kits, and a couple of NOS patch panels plus a complete set of NOS Volvo stainless side trim. Can include these parts as part of package at right price. Approximately $5k in NOS parts in this stash.
No interest in selling individual parts until car is restored or gone. Make reasonable offer on car and/or parts packages. Silly offers and offers to help selling will be ignored.
Shown by appointment only. Will help you load on your transport.
