The GT6 is taking a lot more money than I hoped , so the smart thing would be to keep our expenses down. So, being smart, I bought another project car. 1965 Volvo 544 Sport.

Here is what they look like:



Now, I get to find out what parts will be really hard to find, and no longer made for an old Volvo, like I'm learning with the GT6 ! The one thing going for this car is it will drive. The engine runs. It's close to rust free, and the body looks straight. After a little haggling, I got it for $1900.



Home of the 1969 GT6+ MK II resurrection project
and a sorry looking 1968 GT6+ parts car trying to stay whole.

My father owned ,I believe, a 1962 of this model. It was the factory performance version. I think they designated it as an “S”. He just loved that car. Used to race it on the weekends and haul family through the week. Very KOOL old cars. I think you did well on price! Congrats!

I always liked the looks of that 544, and the 1800 grows on you.
