1971 Volvo 164

SOLD £952

Supplied new in June of 1971 this rare 164 features the B30 series six-cylinder engine displacing some 3.0 litres with Zenith Stromberg 175CD2SE constant-depression carburettors. Finished in red with black leatherette the car represents a sound basis for light cosmetic restoration. We understand she starts, runs and drives forward via its 3-speed Borg warner column change automatic transmission although we gather reverse is often not as successful. The interior looks to be complete but requires some re-fitting and potentially some refurbishment too. Even when stationary it looks to be doing 70mph…we don’t jest, the speedo is stuck at 70, hinting of those heady days gone by. The boot contains a box of useful spares, while the history file includes the V5C and a Haynes manual only which could be quite useful! There is no MOT or history of any MOT since 2006 at least according to the online VOSA records although it is exempt now anyhow. A rare thing, oozing potential, its an early model carburettor car with column mounted auto shift built just prior to the switch over to fuel injection and floor mounted change. Grab it while you can for some boxy fun at No Reserve.
