The mileage is not likely only 29. 00 plus.  This is an old car of unknown mileage.  This Volvo has very good looking repaint in a VW metallic gray that is very shiny.  It never was a rusty car. but had a few minor dime to quarter-sized holes.  The fender welting was removed and smoothed; no cracking in 3 years. The chrome and stainless look very good. but light pitting shows on the bumpers if you look closely.  The car is not original. but a retro-mod. The engine is a B18 with some B20 parts. I was told. fitted into a body that came with a B16 engine.  I was told that this engine had work done to it about 3000 miles ago.  It has a downdraft Weber carb and headers.  The transmission was upgraded to a Volvo 4 speed with overdrive at that time.  Gauges are Autometer antique-style in the dash where the radio plate was.  All windows were removed for the paint job and all rubber gaskets and window channels were replaced. New plain gray door panels were made.  The seats are upholstered in light blue and medium blue vinyl and the headliner is new. but has some installation errors.  The sun visors are not pretty. and should be replaced.  The engine runs great.  It shifts great.  It starts easily from cold or hot.  The clutch engages without slipping or grabbing.  This Volvo's engine does not smoke or make incorrect noises.  It has as-new oil pressure. and no overheating even in Florida hot weather traffic.  The clutch. gear box and overdrive (selected by an on-dash toggle switch) work correctly.    Steering and suspension is tight with a rebuilt idler arm and lower control arm bushings.  Brakes are new including wheel cylinders. master cylinder. and shoes. All gauges. turn signals. brake lights. and the charging system work correctly.  An added fuse box services the overdrive. cigarette lighter socket. and windshield washers.  Tires look new and not cracked. but are perhaps 6 years old.  The heater was removed because it is a Florida car and I like the clean look.  I bought used heater parts except for easily available new gaskets and ducts if the buyer wants to re-install a heater.  A lot of work was done to this car and it works nicely as a result.  The car can be driven in the city and on the expressway. It is a 52 year old car that keeps up with traffic and handles quite well.    
Issues that I know of: There is a paint imperfection on the roof the size of a hand where the surface rust from missing paint was not prepped properly; it looks like rust under the paint but is not soft.  The transmission leaks fluid at the rate of about 4 ounces a month. requiring a catch pan under the car on the garage floor.  The clutch mechanical linkage from the pedal squeaks.  The parking lights can not be turned on without the headlights. The dash lights can't be dimmed.    
It is not a show car or a concours car. but it is in extremely good condition.  Pickup dates are best on a Saturday or Sunday for me.  Full payment by PayPal to protect buyer and seller.  Will sell anywhere if you arrange shipment and just tell me when.  I will be there to deliver it to a car carrier.
Added: Exposed fender welting was cut away laving the fiber between fender and body.  The seams were filled with POR15 seam sealer and then prepped by the body shop.  Photo of right rear fender seam added.  It looks great.  The only welting on the car is as shown between the tail light assemblies and the fenders.  If you notice the reflection of my house. the car really is that shiny.  Shot with a i-phone 4 with no flash.
