ATTICUS - 1970 Volvo 142S

This original owner Volvo 142S was extremely well cared for and driven for many years and then retired into storage. The time came at last to pull this old fella out and breathe some life back into him. With major rust damage to contend with two additional Volvos were used as donor vehicles to make this one whole and hale once again. The car spent many months on the frame bench while the frame and panels were fabricated, welded and aligned. The restoration began in October 2016 and was finished in December 2018. After a winter in storage and some final adjustments the little blue Volvo was sent home in June 2019.

Everything was taken back to original, including the lovely Pacific blue exterior, light blue cloth interior and period correct whitewall tires. With a factory correct AC system and radio this Volvo is truly a time machine on wheels!
