Fresh: ’65 Volvo 122S Station Wagon
Admittedly we are station wagon aficionados. We applaud their versatility and in most cases, the long roof design. Couple that appreciation with one of our favorite utilitarian cars – the Volvo 122S – and you have a car we believe would be a welcome addition to anyone’s household. We are not at all suggesting that this particular example or any other become someone’s garage or trailer queen, but rather an adventure mobile. This is a car you make as reliable as possible using methods learned 40 years after it was originally built. Then take the family camping somewhere far from home. Take lots of Instagram pictures and make your friends jealous. When you get home, take it to Soccer games, Home Depot wherever. You’ll appreciate it because it is a car you can figure out without consulting a manual. The seller has done extensive work repairing or replacing almost everything. The body was treated to a decent paint job. The seller says it was a frameless off effort and we think we know what is meant by that. The asking price is $13,995 and that price represents to us, that the seller is trying to recoup the investment and not represent the real marketplace value. But if everything was done well and you are in hurry to get one and not go through the pain of restoration, give them a call. Click here for the listing.
