I’ve been in the market for a new ride for a bit now, and while it’s probably better to buy something more on the sensible side, I can’t help but look at cars that one day it would be enjoyable to restore. This week, on Craigslist, I came across a 1975 Volvo 164e (pictured below), for a cool $3K. I could probably get somewhere around $2300 for my Integra which means I could either bargain the guy down a few hundred or save up a bit. Could be worth it to sport about town in a choice Volvo such as this. I need to meet a girl, and any girl that would take to the guy driving this ride is my kind of woman. Classic, appreciative of style, and most-likely down to Earth…I’m not looking to hook up with any Ferrari lovers.
This is the exact rig for sale. And here’s the description:
1975 volvo 164e
I have too many cars, and the wife said this one has to go, This is a Clean car with just over 100k on the odometer.
Loaded with Auto trans, A/C, power steering, electric windows. Aftermarket Stereo, CD, with Ipod hook up. A must see for Volvo lovers. The b30e engine is one of the Volvo workhorses. A little bit of cash will make this car scream! This is what this car could do with a little TLC, Check out this video..
3000 firm, will consider reasonable offers.
I like the language about the wife, personally. That and the fact that he included the following video to help sell the beast.
Hell, I’m sold, but I could use a second, third, fourth, fifth opinion…
