1970 Volvo 145Vehicle Details
I’m the 3rd owner (bought it 4 years ago).
Here’s the story about the car as told to me by the 2nd owner.
The car was purchased by an Edmonds man for his wife in 1970.
They owned it for about 30 years. He had it repainted for her birthday but died before it was done. His wife sold it to a guy from England nicknamed Boo. Boo was (is) a massive man, 6’6” muscular build with a think English accent. He put a lot of good work into this car. It was his pride and joy for 15+ years until he decided he needed to move back to England.
Over the 15 years Boo owned the car he -
- Replaced b18 engine with a rebuilt b20
- Rebuilt the 4 speed overdrive transmission
- Added a header (exhaust)
- Replaced the mechanical ignition with electronic ignition
- Replaced the brakes
- Replaced the Speedo
- 3rd row seat
Car runs great. Overdrive works great.
It does have some rust around the rear qtr panels next to the wheels. Rear muffler needs to be replaced. Rip in the front seat.
