Early 1960’s Volvo P122s Sedan (Amazon)

Here we have what appears to be an early 1960’s Volvo P122s Sedan or the “Volvo Amazon” as other countries outside the United States received it.  I can’t pinpoint the exact model year or trim level since I was across a busy street when I took this.  This Volvo is not the cleanest example around, but hey – it’s older than most people I know and looks better than they do at 50+ years 😉  In all seriousness, I’m glad that somebody is driving this Volvo around.  As we know, cars are meant to be a driven and I can applaud people that keeps a car running for so long.

On a side note, I think it is only a matter of time before electric drive-trains become commonplace as engine swaps for classic vehicles. Sacrilege or fantastic? You decide.

1964 Volvo PV544

Would you look here; we spotted an old school or “vintage” as the kids call it, Volvo PV544.  This Volvo from the mid 1960’s seems stuck in time, retaining automotive styling I think resembles that of the 1940’s.  This Volvo is clad in faded red and looks to be very much original. Enjoy

1973 Volvo 1800ES Wagon

Here we have a revered and somewhat rare Volvo 1800ES Wagon. The 1800 line from Volvo was built from 1961 to 1973.  The Wagon version, was only made for two years, from 1972 to 1973, which is why the wagon is a bit more of a rarity.

I did not have the opportunity to get some pictures of the rear or full car pictures, as the Volvo was obscured by street things.  Instead, I took artistic liberty to bring you some close ups and odd shots.  Enjoy.
