1966 Volvo 122S
2 owners from new
All receipts from new
Rare overdrive option
Up for bids here on eBay is this very well documented Volvo 122S. Bought new in Southern California. the car remained with its original owners until 2005. when it was sold to a Volvo enthusiast and collector in Washington State. The car comes with every service receipt from new as well as the original manuals and dealer paperwork. This car is a textbook example of what happens when pride of ownership meets Volvo build quality. Not only is it in excellent running order. it is 100% rust free and original. a West Coast survivor car that's been cared for from day one.

The car has had one repaint in its original color of Light Green. code 91. This is arguably one of the best Amazon colors and was only available in 66 and 67. The paint quality on the car is to good driver standards - it shows a few chips here and there and some minor overspray on some of the rubber seals. The paint has good lustre and shine and overall presents very well. it's good enough for local shows but not so perfect that you'd be afraid to really get out there and drive it. The body on this 122 is very straight with no dents or areas of waviness. I have not detected any bondo anywhere on the body and the undercarriage is likewise solid and original. I have inspected the car from top to bottom and have found zero rust issues. pretty remarkable for its age. Panel fit is all good with consistent gaps. The glass are all original Sunex pieces in great shape. the windshield is a Volvo branded replacement and is crystal clear. Tires are classic Michelin XA4's with lots of tread and no sidewall checking.
The side trim shows a few little dings. doing their job I guess. All of the chrome on the car is in good shape with no pitting. The rear bumper has been rechromed. the front is still original and shows some age related fading. Neither bumper have any dings or dents. another testament to this car's charmed life.
Lights and lenses are all in excellent condition. The CA black plates you see in the photos are the ones issued to the car in 1966. they will be included with the sale. Also included:
Every registration slip from 1966 onward.
A huge stack of service receipts. chronologically arranged from 1966. detailing this car's complete service history.
The original owner's manual. warranty booklet. warranty card and dealer directory
Temporary license permit issued by the dealer when the car was first sold. An anniversary card and oil change coupon from the selling dealer; Haste and Hirsty in Studio City. California.
1966 corresponence from Valvoline relating to a special warranty offer if their products are used.
Clean trunk area with an OE Volvo replacement gas tank. The trunk exhibits no rust issues. one look under the parcel shelf and you can tell that this trunk was never wet.
The green interior completes this classic 122 color scheme. The seats are in excellent condition with no splits. tears or scuffs. they're very nice. The rubber flooring shows some areas of wear. overall though it's hanging in there pretty well after 47 years. The dash pad has one split above the instrument binnacle. these are very easy to replace and are readily available from suppliers. Step plates are in good original condition. windlacing is new.
Door panels are terrific. door weatherstripping is new.
Nice steering wheel with no cracks. Back seat is excellent. side panels present as new.
All gauges and lights work correctly. dash shows the optional hazard function. overdrive switch and indicator light. The heater and fan are very effective and will singe your socks in typical Swedish style. Radio works. original seat belts are in good shape.
The B20 motor was rebuilt about 15. 00 miles ago. it fires right up and runs super. I just returned from a 200 mile freeway trip and the car was brilliant. This Volvo cruises comfortably at 75 with power to spare - it runs down the road straight and true. brakes well. handles great. shifts perfectly and the overdrive makes long distance touring a pleasure.
The motor has the Weber upgrade with a classic IPD intake and K&N filter. The Crane electronic ignition means no more points to look after.
The undercarriage shows an IPD swaybar. Bilstein shocks and a new exhaust mated to an IPD header. . Floorpans and rockers are all original and just as nice as you'd want to find them. a standout example of Volvo's venerable Amazon series.
