Hey!My names is Simon and I\'m looking to see if this car is still available by any chance... I\'ve been searching for an older Volvo wagon and have dreamt of a Volvo 145 wagon, but they are always out of reach by some standard. This car is exactly how I\'d want one, the color is spectacular, and the 4 speed is a must! Anyhow, please do let me know if the car is still available as I am seriously interested!

Up for sale is my nice 1973 Volvo 145 wagon. If you know anything about the 140 series Volvo's. the wagons are super rare in good condition (or in any condition). especially on the east coast. trust me. I know. I found this one in Colorado after a year of looking.
I have a small collection of classic cars. mostly Volvo's and I'm losing some storage space and need to sell a few. I recently acquired a really nice green 1980 Volvo 265 Diesel and have decided to sell the 145 because the two cars are so similar.
The history that I obtained from the previous owner is that this 145 was purchased at auction after it was donated by an estate to the local NPR radio station. The owner had died and the car had sat in garaged storage for almost 20 years. The 88. 00 miles are believed to be correct. however the odometer broke shortly after I purchased the car with 87. 00 miles. The previous owner only sold the car because his wife required a/c and the a/c in this car was removed earlier.
Mechanically. the car runs great. the engine has plenty of torque. starts and idles smoothly. The 4 speed transmission shifts smoothly and the overdrive is operational- just installed a new on-dash toggle switch that activates the overdrive. I have no oil leaks under the car! The car comes with two sets of wheels and tires. As shown. I mounted a really nice set of rare Volvo virgo turbo wheels with brand new (less than 200 miles) radial tires. Not shown- an nice original set of wheels and caps with good tread studded tires for winter.
The interior is stellar. actually too nice to be original. The seats are a medium brown color and are in excellent shape. Carpeting is good but faded. The headliner is excellent. The rear cargo area is super clean. The dash has one small crack in the traditional spot but there's a custom dash cover. Everything works but the clock and the odometer. The radio is missing but all the wiring is there for a quick install of a new radio of your choice.
The exterior is a 15 footer. In the right light it looks great. but the paint has the traditional patina of a car of this vintage. A respray would really dress things up but I like it just the way it is. It appears there's some small areas of respray on the cowl and rear hatch from earlier repairs but everything else appears to be the original paint. I recently replaced the two rear hatch lift shocks with new ones. There is a tow bar receptacle and locking gas cap.
Please contact me if you'd like to see the car and inspect this rare 145 in person. currently garaged near Harrisonburg. Va.
