5k: Target Acquired: 1978 Volvo 242ute El Camino’d

Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov, a noted Russian novelist, lepidopterist, and possibly a closet pedophile, once wrote “Which arrow flies for ever? The arrow that has hit its mark.”  Today’s next feature will fly forever because it has landed squarely in the sweet spot at the intersection of Volvo 240 and El Camino.  Find this 1978 Volvo 242ute El Camino offered for $5,500 near Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Andrey S.

It might also be important to mention that it is covered in the blue and gold from the Swedish flag and has a giant NACA duct on the hood.  If the Duke’s of Hazzard were Swedish, this would have been the General Lee Thor.  

Under the hood is a 2.3 liter fuel injected engine which is probably a B23, but it is mated to an automatic transmission for hauling/cruising duties.

The interior looks in decent shape those flat bottomed sofa chair seats are great for long drives or laying flat for camping…except now there is no back seat so you will be sleeping out doors in a steel bed.
