A friend of mine called about it for his old man ... Apparently it's part of some guys private collection which has always been stored in a temperature controlled environment. I'm not even sure if this car has seen daylight. Currently it's on a circuit around the country being trucked from show to show... I hear the owner is asking in the region of $90k for this beauty. This car belongs in a museum, although i would daily drive that like no ones business.
Awesome!!! But such an old car with no miles...are any of the rubber parts even good?
My '65 Beetle, totally original/OEM with approx 30K miles on it when I acquired her in '97, had rubber weatherstripping and upholstery that was as supple and fresh as new. It is largely a matter of how a vehicle is stored, especially away from direct sunlight as much as possible, and if the owner dresses the rubber parts regularly. The original owner of my VW was fastidious in caring for his car, and dressed the rubber weatherstripping with silicone all the time, according to his daughter, who told me the history of her dad's car after I purchased it from the second owner.
This Volvo is simply fabulous. Loved 'em when they were new, and seeing a brand-new one 40 years later makes me feel all "spendy" inside. I wish.
