So did that wagon look made over or original to you?

Oh **** that does look like a museum. I went to buy a couple of mufflers from a guy here off craigslist, round the back of his house he had a collection of about 10 immaculate 60s muscle cars. His "workshop" was more like a dentists surgery, white tiled floors He was working on them in there too, I have no idea how he kept it so clean. I almost forgot to take the mufflers with me after looking round haha.

It really was amazing to stand in there and think that these 4 old Volvo's have earned a spot in that awesome warehouse! haha

And no the 245 did not look made over, I was a little taken back by everything in there so I failed to take a really thorough look! The 144 did have a weird wear mark on the trunk lid...... the 1800 look as new as a 90 miles car could look! I wish I had spent more time and looked under the 1800 to see how clean it really was!

That white wagon's had a re-paint. Classic body shop mistake on the tailgate- Volvo on the right, and 245DL on the left.

If it's a 42,000 mile car, why does it have a Volvo 100,000 mile badge on the glove box? Seems fishy?

If they were trying to fool somebody with the mileage, why would they not be clever enough to remove that badge so that no one thinks twice about it!?

This.

And of course, when you went there, did you ask about the badge when you were there?

I didn't follow my Volvo history correctly, But isn't a 77 supposed to have a flat hood? And aren't those e-codes?

That wheel is the same color as my dash trim after I repented the OEM 240 classic wood trim...would fit like a glove.

Yeah those are e-codes that were not available in '77. even in Europe, I believe they are from 78, to late 79. maybe a part of 1980....

Those headlights were on 260 series cars as far back as '76, so they could have been fitted to this car with no problem.

This car did or was intended to have a flat hood, as evidenced by the single headlight upper valence (lack of notches, whereas a factory coffin-hood car would have the notches) My only guess is that either the hood was swapped, or the car was factory-fitted with a 265 GL hood in order to spruce up the appearance of the car for the "50th Anniversary" as they did with 244GL's of the same year.

Kit car.This thing was put together after 1977.Everything about it says non -original.Since the car belonged to a volvo collector/enthusiast it stands to reason that the PO would want all the "toys' for his collectable.

No, he said they were asking 19k

They just sell cars, I'm sure they have no F**king idea about the true details!
