Hi all - got this email - please contact seller Ray via phone (details below) if interested. If you contact Ray and find the car is no longer available, please let me know and I’ll mark the ad as sold.
Mr Ray Phillips from Kingaroy Qld sent a letter & attached photo of his car a 1974 Volvo 144GL with B20E motor.
He is an elderly gentleman and is not quite sure on the price he would like for the car. He has had a conversation with John Johnson and had written to most Volvo Car Clubs to see if any members would be interested in purchasing the car.
He lists the Chassis No. 476813 but said there is a Swedish Plate which has Chassis 144-4869A. Build date 8-74. Qld Rego 276LDY.

Certainly unique but probably a bit pricey?
Please let me know if you contact the seller and this item is sold. Doesn't look too bad...talking to seller, he bought it some years ago but has not ever registered or driven it on the road to my knowledge...guess he was doing it up a bit mechanically then decided he didn't need it. Fairly rare colour I'd say, although not sure how great the paint is.
Please contact seller via details below:
As promised some photos and details of my Volvo 164.
1970 model Carbys with 4 speed manual (been converted from an auto to manual) was repainted at some time in the past very poor job.
I think to help for a quick sale I would be happy to take $5000
I think there's enough details on the attached excel sheet to show what has been done.
as mentioned it has 152,000 km's on the clock. has been re-upholstered so in great order, no cracks in dash, exhaust was replaced before I became the owner.
would need new carpets, Has a towbar fitted and wired, electric fuel pump (mechanical one removed) Tyres are roadworthy but maybe a bit old, have replaced the spring boot openers with gas struts. new front brake hoses.
if you need any photos of specific areas let's know.
Looks nice for the mechanically-inclined. No, I don't need another one...
Usually the hose between the boot-mounted tank and the under-floor tank perishes and when you really "fill-er-up" you drive off and leave about 20 L of petrol along about 20 km of road! Ask me how I know this!
Day 2 Tokyo and a lot more Volvos. Not pictured, a new XC90 and a previous-gen XC90, a new XC60, XC70 and V70. Pictured are a white V40 Cross Country in the middle of the crazy Shibuya pedestrian crossing, a black S60 with yellow Lambo convertible in background, a “Polestar blue” V40 and a black V70. Also a white XC60, red V60 and the holy grail a beige 240 wagon.
