Seems Like A Good Deal: 1968 Volvo 122S Amazon

The next car  is located under a car cover at an RV storage lot, so it breaks the advice that you should never buy a car from storage...but this next car appears to have up-to-date license plate stickers and a reasonable asking price. Find this 1968 Volvo 122S Amazon offered for $3000 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.

  1. Cool old car, but not as cool as the Volvo 544...

  2. This car has a lot going for it. '68 the best year to get, headrests, and dual master cylinder brakes. Still has the dual carbs. Love this color. Manual trans, do not see the overdrive lever, but see a switch on the dash. I prefer the wagons but this sedan looks very tempting.

  3. Major extra points for not having rear doors! I like this car a lot, especially in Swedish Racing Green w/ saddle interior :) Is it me or is this a really good candidate to make a driveable survivor. No new paint, just make it mechanically sound and drive it everywhere.

    1. Thumbs up!

      I support this message. I like it so much, I bought the company.

    2. I, for one, welcome our new doggie-avatar'd over... um... which company was that, Z?

    3. Ooh, at 0:33, a car quiz! Dynasty, Ford truck, 244, Escort, Malibu, Chevette maybe, MB 280SEL?, Firebird. What do I win? Floor wax? Dessert topping?

    4. Not only do you win a floor wax that doubles as a dessert topping, you also win batteries and land in Montana.

    5. Montana! I’ll be a dental floss tycoon! Yippee-ki-yay, and so forth.

    6. Nah, I'll take Montana -- just me and the pygmy pony over by the dental floss bush...

  4. If it's not rusty , buy it!
    I had a '67 for years in 1975 and drove it everywhere. It's a SAFE old car which makes it better as a driver.
    I've had 8 old Volvos since. They are so easy to keep and use.

  5. I had a '64 with the B18 engine. I had lots of mechanical trouble with it and the rocker panels were rusting (Michigan winters and this was 1972). It had some of the most comfortable seats I've ever had in a car.

  6. Great body style, might want to open the door so we could see the interior dude.
