The Third Newman-Letterman V8lvo? 1995 Volvo 960 V8 with Puffer

The most famous Volvo wagon (or wagons) of all time is the V8 swapped 960 wagon that Paul Newman owned — the saga of this car was told years later by Dave Letterman and in 2014 Newman’s wagon was found in a cheap used car lot — that story was broken here on DT.  All built at the same time by Converse Engineering, Letterman’s car was red, Newman’s car was grey and a third car was built for Ian Warburg in Manhattan...and that car was blue.  So..imagine my surprise when this Kenne Bell puffer equipped 960 V8 Volvo comes through the tips line located somewhere in New York.  The blue paint is faded..but the under-hood details are so similar…the only question is the white interior shown in this old Jalopnik article seems to have been swapped for black…but some of the underhood details are so similar. Could this be the third of the three cars built by Converse for Newman/Letterman/et al? Find this 1995 Volvo 960 V8 with Puffer offered for an undisclosed sum of cash in Mamaroneck, NY via craigslist. Tip from Art.
