C303 Laplandish: 1975 Volvo TGB11

Would you like to get into something vintage, slow, and tippy, like Volkswagen van, but  are not impressed by the current asking prices of aircooled junk?  You aren't alone, but for every overpriced and overhyped piece of hipster-bait, there is a budget alternative.  Find this 1975 Volvo TGB11 here on eBay bidding for $13,000 reserve-not-met with buy-it-now of $15k. 

 The C303 was the successor to the older C202 Laplander and had a distinguished military career of keeping moose safe in Scandinavia.  It makes the list of top ten unlikely motorsports icons; the C303 was victorious in the light truck class at the 1983 Paris-to-Dakar Rally,

  1. If I had $15K right now, I'd be pennyless by the end of the day.

  2. And its gone....too good of a deal for someone not to jump at it.

  3. Last year for the same month Volvo has sold 2,582 units of the XC90. That shows a 16 percent decrease in the sales of the award winning model.automoves
