1978 Volvo Wagon — This car was as ugly as they come but it was built like a tank. It had the side impact beams in the doors in 1978, mine was a dark blue and was standard and had a 4 cylinder engine. I taught my self how to drive a standard on this car. It was a five speed with the over drive switch on top of the shifter knob.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer yet another incredible, one of a kind, custom SEMA built vehicle; the 1978 Volvo Bertone 262C you see pictured. This incredible, seldom seen vintage 2 door Volvo coupe boasts a loud paint job and an even louder powerhouse!
Do you ever wonder what happens to some of the crazy cars that are seen at the SEMA show? Lots of them go back to the people that built them, get sold, and live the lives of pretty normal hot rods. Some of them like this 1978 Volvo Bertone 262C spend time looking for a new home. For starters we’ll just say that there’s lots of win hiding in plain sight here because this is an all-steel body on this car. The flares and added pieces to beef up the appearance of the Volvo are not plastic, they are not bondo sculptures, and they represent LOTS of man-hours of metal working. The big problem we have with the car as it sits is the color and they could be fixed in a hurry. This Volvo painted jet black or some kind of deep charcoal color would be ominous and cool. The green made sense for a SEMA car that needs to make a big splash in front of a crowd being assaulted with colors and light from all sides in Las Vegas. Now that the show is over, it can be made to look totally evil.
This 1978 Volvo 245 DL (chassis VC24545C1207680) looks great and has traveled only 51k miles from new, and though described as very original it sounds as if the exterior has been resprayed at some point. The car’s two previous owners have kept cosmetics and mechanicals in good condition, so it’s now up to the new owner to collect Volvo High Mileage Club badges to adorn the grille. Find it in Scottsdale, Arizona with no reserve.
