Default Another round of name these Volvo parts!

So I found a couple things while going through a large old school Volvo parts stash that I couldn't identify, anyone know what they are? I apologize for the pic quality, it was in a cramped little space at the peak of the roof.

The first one is obviously a front fender, but for what? They thought it was for one of the 1xx cars, and the big clue is the shape of the light hole. There are a few of these fenders, NOS in primer







Second thing, some weird little Volvo brand tent looking thing, I know the pic is really bad but should be enough to ID it I hope:

Yeah I guess 140 series on the front fender also. That tent thing is a top of the car cargo carrier thing. I've seen those before. Works on any car with the gutters usually.

'73-'74 fenders have a larger hole higher up for the turn signal. The one you found fits '67-'72 140's like the car in Andrews sig. The side marker light hole isn't cut out so the fenders will fit the earlier cars that only had reflectors.





Technically, '67-'69 fenders were different because the wheel opening was smaller but they were updated to the '70-'72 fenders.

Nope. The 164 has several extra inches between the front wheel and the A-pillar.

As well as a different shape up front.

Splitting hairs here...but didn't the wheel opening revision happen in '71?
I know my '70 145 (that I'm pretty sure has the original fenders) has the smaller opening.

OP, to id the difference, you can measure from the top of the wheel arch to the center of where the chrome trim would go above it.
IIRC, it's pretty easy to distinguish the two different fenders as the difference is about an inch.

No idea what the "tent thing" is.
Maybe a cargo bag that attaches to the roof rack on a wagon or a trunk rack on an 1800?

You are correct sir. After checking the parts catalog it looks like they were used on early '71's as well.

FWIW, just took a look in the loft...
my 1970 145S - 4-5/16" +/-;
the 1972 144E - 3-3/16" +/-.

The fender in the first post is a later ('71-'72) one. Compare the distance between the top of the wheel opening and the trim line to these early cars.
