It was a long week, and now you’ve got plans to drive north across the Golden Gate Bridge and get outta town. What do you drive? A classic 911…nah, too expensive. A Volkswagen Van…too hipster. A classic Mustang…too common. How about a 1966 Volvo 122S Amazon offered for $3999 in Burlingame, CA via Craigslist.
This isn’t a perfect museum piece 122S that will get you awards at the next Concours d’Onepercenter in Palo Alto — quite the opposite, in fact. It is a brawler, a street fighter that will look just as good cruising down the 880 in Oakland or double parked in front of Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon.
Under the hood is a B18 inline-4 that is attached to an M40 manual gearbox and is claimed to run/drive great.
