• actually, the Amazon offers a mix of driveability and vintage 50's cool – which is even cooler than 60's 🙂

  • Wonderfully screwed together and nice rides even stock. While the onerous "P" car odes to excess cash are gross, cars like these have always had a following and nice ones were available at a premium in the day when so many were used up and thrown away as commuter cars, or just an old car.

    1800's are higher on the price curve, and while the best of each have gone beyond the depth of my pockets, a nice car, in nice shape and enough people who appreciate creates these minor cult markets.

    544, 122, 1800's are being joined the last several years by the "brick-boys." Never in my wildest imagination did I think 240's would become valuable.

But the engines really do keep going.

    The Volvo market is an interesting one, and as a lifelong fan I am delighted.

  • It's only 4200 miles from Anchorage to where I live. I'd like to buy a car up there and drive it back home one of these days. What could possibly go wrong?

    • I agree with Zach. Having traveled further than 4200 miles with 122's not nearly this nice with nothing more than generator brushes and center carrier bearing go, they are very, very sturdy cars. Cars get reputations for good reasons. Michael V> Buy it and love the trip!
