From the seller:

condition: fair
make / manufacturer: volvo amazon
I have a cool 1967 Volvo 122S Amazon coupe. This is the much desired 2 door model. It has Volvo b18 engine with a Weber 32/36 Carburetor. I have installed the IPD sport springs and new shocks on all 4 corners, giving the car a more sport feel and look. I have replaced the front and rear brakes. It has new rear brake drums. I have replaced the master cylinder and clutch master cylinder. She has a newer muffler.

The interior will need some TLC but still usable. Tires are used but still have plenty of tread on them. The body has some rust spots that will need to be addressed (55 year old car) and there is a hole in the floor pan behind the driver side seat. I simple patch panel will do wonders. The floor pan is in good shape other than a couple of spots that will need to be cut off and new metal welded in place. Something I would of done but never got around to it.

The car will come with other used parts along with its original set of SU carburetors, rims and tires. The vehicle is drivable but will need a tune up to get it spot on. Mostly adjust the ignition timing. I tried but I am no expert. I’m not even sure the timing gun I was using was working properly. The car will start and run.

Need to keep in mind this car is priced right. It does have some issues but nothing that a weekend mechanic can’t handle. You can drive it then wrench in it on the weekends. It’s a 55 year old car so don’t expect to get a pristine vehicle for 5.5 grand. Do expect to get something no one else has in your local car show. Be different.

These cars are getting harder to find and here is your chance to own one. If you want something cool looking and no one will have one at your local car show then this is it. Be prepared to receive numerous thumbs up when driving her around! $5500 obo.
