    Default 1965 Volvo 122 Project "Old Balls"

    I was trying sell my 1994 suzuki sport bike for $1200 and a guy asked me if I was interested in trading it for this 1965 Volvo 122s. The car has 56K (156k, 256k, 356k? lol), 4 speed manual. It came with Diamond racing (I believe) 15x10 -38 on all four corners. The previous owner cut all four springs to ghetto slam it. Since there is about 1 inch of travel before bottoming out the ride is absolutely awful. The car had some fairly heavy oxidation as well as wiring issues, no blinkers, wipers, brake lights, heater, gauges etc. I was skeptical that I had gotten a good deal but after spending the day working on the car I found that the paint was awesome after waxing as well as fixing all electrical issues by cleaning the old fuse terminals.

    Pics of when i first bought it.

    Damn, never seen an Amazon like this before.

    I see those cars daily but most of the time prety standard or a bit rally style but not like this!
    I'm not really into the bumper and the wide rear tires but the idea is cool.

    Nice Andrew, glad you're liking it. The front stance is perfect, the rear needs work, maybe some flares or something?

    The fender mirrors are the best IMO. haha

    Thanks everyone! I absolutely love the car. I'm not one to take my time with a project. I ordered new springs for the car which showed up yesterday, and today I re-did the whole suspension. Forgot my camera the pics but I'll post them tomorrow.
