1971 VOLVO 164 - €19,950
In 1968 Volvo introduced the 164 as a luxury version of their 140 series. The wings, the grille, the front bumper, the bonnet, the headlamp bezels, and the front indicators were all unique to the 164; to accommodate the long 3-litre 6-cylinder engine the 164's engine bay needed to be longer than its smaller brother. The interior featured a woodgrain dashboard face and leather seating upholstery. Introduced the same year as BMW's 2800CS, the 164 was Volvo's answer to the Mercedes-Benz S-class and Jaguar XJ-range. Despite being relatively heavy, the 164 gave favourable fuel economy compared to other 6-cylinder European cars of similar dimensions.
The car we offer for sale is unique in many ways. Not only is this car an original Belgian delivery, it has only covered 56.000km from new!
The car has been acquired by the present owner in 2015 and was extensively restored during several months following the purchase.
The car has been rebuilt completely and can be considered as new. Thanks to the stunning colour combination of blue metallic with cream leather interior, the car looks really amazing.
Mechanically the car is in excellent condition as well, with a revised engine and gearbox and a brand new overdrive unit!
The restoration process of this unique vehicle has been extensively described in the club magazine of the Volvo Classic Club Belgium. This article describes in detail all efforts that have been made by the owner, in order to restore this car to its actual condition.
A unique collection car, one of a kind, a privilege to drive and enjoy its upmost comfort, so typical for the seventies.
