This is some of the last C70s and they are a bit customized from factory, painted in old color codes.

Win for me.

BTW I hate the 164 front end but on a 140 wagon... for some reason I hate it less.

That's why I was curious -- I would think that someone that converts to center lock wheels, especially Group A wheel, has done other cool stuff to the car too.

WOW

Really great cars! I love that 262 convertible, and the C70 painted in that yellow. Also, do I see your orange 244 peeking out there in one of the shots?

I need to get there sometime soon. Really great pics, not keen in the 162 prototype for the 262 but still interesting to see.

Seriously! Why can't they make cars in those colors again instead of some boring shade of grey?

This one was at the Saab museum on sat. Don't know if he made it to the Volvo museum on sunday.
 photo VROMatSaabMuseum081_zps48c403b9.jpg
Saw the black convertible at the owners private collection museum on friday. The talk was all about only 5 known covertibles made. But then another showed up on ebay that weekend, made by the same company in Califorina, Soltair, so now they have to revise their count. Another problem they are having is getting registered as the car was "cut up" modified from original and Sweden wants something stating that it is still a safe car.
Hey Rada I was there with a group from the US, Volvo Club of America. Nice country you have there!

That 162C is hideous. The 265 is actually kinda cool, though.
