• I spoke with the owner last week. The car came from Washington State—but was bought through COPART a Salvage – Insurance reseller.
    Car has some damage on one side. I was unable to supply seller w needed trim ,side marker, and Fender. Car allegedly a one owner DRs car that was gifted to a charity—-not sure how Copart ended up with it.
    Title review necessary to be sure not salvage and now titled in Florida—not sure if it was.
    The seller is a dealer who regularly buys cars like this.

  • Present, sir! Sunday found me running up and down A1A so I missed this somehow. My Volv-at must be off…

    Anon, thanks for the info. I will definitely keep that in mind when I call the seller this afternoon.

  • So, I won't be able to go see this until next Friday but I have a feeling it will still be available. Frame rails and jack points and battery boxes all have to get checked out, plus rear window ledge under the 'gasket.' This would be a good resto mod starting point to go with the my stock(ish) California white Nerd.

  • Checked out the car in person today…it was a rust bucket with over 300k miles on the clock and a pretty ratty interior. Felt like about 1 out of the 4 brakes were working, and the engine was way down on power. Seller was patronizing throughout and completely unwilling to budge on the price. Oh well…still worth the drive out to the middle of nowhere to get to see an interesting old classic, I suppose.
