Patina'd, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1967 Volvo 122 S Rat
Rod offers some serious distinction in every crowd. And it has the
strong motor and driving characteristics to let you drive out to
The Volvo Amazon is one of the best designs to come out of the
1960s. Its unmistakably Swedish with sturdy lines, but the all the
edges seem to be rounded with an artist's touch. However, on this
example, people are going to be looking at the sheetmetal for a
very different reason. It's a true patina car where the deep green
has eroded with time to look like the mossy/rocky banks of a Nordic
lake. And there's even a fresh clear coat on top to seal in this
well-earned distinction. Plus, this has a true California cruiser
look with the roof rack and bold red steelie wheels with two-piece
bright trim. And those LED headlights help signal how thoughtful
this total package really is.
The interior continues the true rad rod style. So they didn't touch
places like the door panels, flooring, or leather seats. But like
any rat rod, this is secretly rewarding for those who know where to
look. For example, the added tach is quite handy to go with the
four-speed manual transmission. While the radio has a retro look,
it's a modern AM/FM digital tuner that can also hook in you iPod
for the best in modern driving music. Plus, you'll also spot the
controls for the full air ride suspension that lets you get that
ideal street machine stance for wherever you take this Volvo.
The engine bay is ready for display. It's a tidy setup with newer
components and an overall clean look. And we love how the high temp
red on the valve cover matches the air grabbers. But what should
really get you excited is this Volvo's correct 1.8-liter motor.
These have an exceptionally robust reputation, and you're looking
at a well-done dual-carb setup. It fires up readily and runs
strong, so it's a true hardy Nordic warrior. You also have the
right newer components, like an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to
help keep this running cool, and newer bushings to add a
confidently sharp feeling on the road. There's also front disc
brakes and sway bars front & rear. Plus, those whitewall tires that
look cool on the outside are actually masking modern sport rubber.
So this lowered and patina'd Volvo is also a truly strong driver to
enjoy near or far.
This is the perfect blend of custom, vintage, distinguished,
usable, and affordable. You know you're supposed to pay a lot more
for a head-turning classic like this, and so you also know how
quick you have to be to snatch up this deal. Call today!!!
