1971 Volvo Other 142EUp for sale is my 1971 Volvo 142E. This is arguably the best year and model of the 142 after the GT. Updated front grill from the early years, actory black leather seats, nd the only time Volvo put the higher compression B20E with the beefier roller bearing M41 overdrive transmission and larger disk brakes into a 140. Only 1,500 were made. Although the exterior is no longer the factory gold and shows signs of wear, his 142E is an excellent ready to go anywhere driver with zero rot.
Body:- Straight panels with even gaps all around. I haven't found any signs of accident damage or repair. Little to no dings in the body.- Chrome is in great to excellent shape all around and is all accounted for, xcept the beauty rings for the wheels.- Grill and bumpers are in excellent shape- The exterior running lights and turn signals are also in excellent condition- Side mirror glass is excellent- Locking Volvo gas cap- No rot. Don't let the fading brown paint and surface rust on the hood and roof fool you, his car is entirely free of weakened metal (rot). There are no rust bubbles. The only rust hole is a dime sized hole in one of the spare tire wells in the trunk, ut the metal surrounding the hole is solid and there is no active rust there. The fenders, ockers, loor pans, nside and underside are all free of rust.
Engine:- Strong B20E high-compression engine. Runs great!- Pertronix electronic ignition- New distributor cap & rotor- New Bosch blue coil- New vacuum lines- New engine bay fuel hoses- New injector seals- New Bosch fuel pressure regulator- New temperature sensor- New thermostat- New OEM air intake filter- New exhaust/intake manifold gasket and down pipe gasket- New brake booster- New Bosch alternator- New battery- Recent TPS, alve and timing adjustment- Back box section of the exhaust is currently missing, owever I will install a new OEM Volvo back box section prior to selling.
Transmission:- Rebuilt '71 142E M41 roller bearing transmission with working overdrive- New transmission mount bushing- New transmission fork rubber boot
Suspension / Brakes:- New rear Bilstein shocks (fronts are Bilstein as well but a few years old)- IPD gold front sway bar- Stainless steel brake lines- All suspension bushings look to be in good shape with no cracking
Interior:- Rear seats are original and in decent shape. The bottom cushion is in great condition, owever the tops of the upper section have cracks in the leather and the center section has some cracks and a tear in the seam.- Rear quarter cards have tears in them, owever correct excellent condition replacement cards will be included with the sale.- Headliner is in good shape.- Front seats are not original to the car and have some tears.- Steering wheel center horn is in excellent condition.- Period Blaupunkt stereo AM/FM head unit with Blaupunkt second channel speaker. Both dash speakers are undamaged and working. There is a third speaker in the back parcel shelf, owever I have not looked at it or tried to connect it to the sound system.- Center console with arm rest (top leather is missing)- Dash has two cracks and a hole where a tachometer was mounted. I can include a Volvo accessory dash mounted tachometer with the sale, ut it's working condition is unknown.- Glove box is currently missing, owever I have a glove box and bracket that will be included. If I find the time, will install it prior to sale.
The car starts, uns and drives great, ruises at 75 MPH with ease. I drive it all the time without worry and have taken it on several long road trips. With a paint job and some sorting of the interior, his would be an excellent example of a rare '71 142E.
