Volvo 144, automatic. For Sale: £2,500
Volvo 144, 1971
Taxed & Tested to December 2015
125,000 miles, so it's now run-in and probably at its best.
Pale grey paint, with that terrific combination of a red interior.
Automatic transmission, with the rather lovely column shift and its correctly working dash indicator.
This car is truly delightful, both dynamically on the road and also structurally: take a look behind the front trim and you'll see a completely unmessed car; even the engine bay is a clean delight.
The enthusiast will want to titivate a couple of tiny patches of bubbling, to make it a headturner and keep it in top condition.
Whilst this is a delicious car as it is, the shell is so good that it would also make the perfect historic rally car should you incline that way.
Particularly so since (much like 1967 Amazon) this is the best of the 3 eras of the 140: it's still light (the later plastic grilled facelift gained over a 100kg in side impact protection).
It's a better shell than our London2CapeTown 144, and puts one in mind of a competitive outing on the Peking2Paris run, or similar.
