Default Craziest Volvo Build/Modification ever?

1972 Volvo 142 on 1999 V70R Chassis AWD with interior. Water to air intercooled. Thought I'd share my modifications. Been years since last logged on.

Picked the build up on IG a little while back, it looks fun. Glad you cut the splitter down!

Would stock size R wheels have fit in the 142 fenders, or is the R wheelbase much wider to begin with?

Oh for sure, was just waiting on those front flares to know measurements. I think everyone thought I was keeping it huge lol.

Wow, that's insane. I had not seen that before. Thanks, 03 s60 wheel, 08 c30 seats, and functional rear seats from the R.

Yes they would have, the track width was super similar between the two. I figured because wheelbase was 2.4" off and that I needed flares to offset that might as well go wide. Went ahead and ordered1.5" adapters, 18x10.5 wheels with squared 285 30 18's.

Hot damn
So how many times did you have to raise and lower the body ?

How well or not does the dash fit?

Plans for it ?

Really cool.

Here's another insane 'Volvo' build, although at this point it's just a bit of Volvo bodywork being dragged along for a ride:

I actually think that era of Volvo interiors were **** but the mechanics of it are cool.

Great job!!!!!. I know what work goes into building some thing different, when I made my wagon a two door 29 years ago people thought I was crazy. Nice to see someone with a good mind and the finished product.

Probably around 30 which wasn't bad, I was expecting to do around 100. before cutting dash it didn't fit close at all. Trimmed all the way to the defroster outlets on back side. Narrowed it 5". Passenger side is not as close as I'd like it to the door so I'll probably redo the dash, picking up an 99 s70 tomorrow hopefully for a parts car. $400! Lots of plans, car is still mid build. I just ordered so much stuff in last two days. Vida, Dice, gauges, tb contactless kit, on and on and on. I'll do a manual swap, right now looking at stage 2 from Hilton for now.... I could go 2.5 but little spendier and they reccomment water meth. Going to build a downpipe real soon, going to tear a bunch of stuff apart in next week.

Really well actually considering. It does have that huge foot print. I just went cheap on suspension for now to get her going, I heard in the grapevine that BC racing was actually making a full coilover kit... been awhile with no updates. So I just went Sachs struts and IPD lowering springs and nivomat foolers in the rear and took two coils out. Still stock sways. Not bumpy, nice enough to daily. Took a lot of top weight out compared to the wagon.

Its pretty slow right now. 3rd Gear feels pretty good though. weighed in at 3340 lbs. full tank, Exactly 300 less than the wagon with full tank day before started cutting. But I've got some good supporting mods for later and plan on doing so. Be nice to run 13's. Want it more for a driver anyways.

I'll be in Salt Lake a couple times a year, Hitting up Dear Valley and MTB's. Probably hit Moab in it next year. Maybe hit Miller when I get car more dialed.

Thank You, insane amount of work. I don't know how I did it in just 11 months so far. Around 1200 hours so far.

I don't mind it, I had the 142 dash, needed some repairs but if I failed on the newer dash I would have just went full custom with the 142 one which would have cost more.
