Used Car of the Day: 1965 Volvo 122S

Unofficial Volvo week continues. I wanted to move on from Sweden but this 1965 Volvo 122S is too unique to pass up.

This restored car is black-on-red, which is apparently the rare “19” color combo.

The car was restored, repainted, and the rust removed over the past 6,000 miles. It still has the original engine and the carbs have been serviced and re-tuned. There are also performance spark-plug wires, a sport exhaust system, and a swapped-in manual transmission. The suspension has also been reworked and Bilstein shocks are part of that.

Exterior renovations include a new front nose, front and rear inner fenders, rockers, rear quarter panels, and more. Inside there’s a new dash pad, headliner, and Momo steering wheel.

The flooring and hat shelf still need to be redone.

Other mods include a LED third brake light, a Bluetooth head unit, rear three-point seat belts, and Hella driving lights.

The ask for this Pennsylvania-based car is $25,000.
