"It is a sheer pleasure to sell such a lovely piece of Volvo history; it has been well cared for during its 85 years of ownership, was last driven and serviced in 2014, and comes with a terrific story and history."

Description

This car was delivered new to the Lundgren Leather Factory in 1937 and used as a director's car until the Second World War. During the war it was stored at the factory and the tires were used by the Swedish war effort. After the war, it was resurrected in 1946 and used by the father and factory owner until the late 1950s, when it was retired and garaged.
Later, after the father died, the family inherited the car, which remained in storage until 2004, when it was reregistered as UKB286 and used for a short time before being stored. The car had a full service in 2014 and was placed back into service for a few years before being put back into storage until we picked it up this week. We now have the pleasure of getting it back up - and - running.

A fully documented PDF of the cars life is included in Swedish.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    Everything remained operational until 2014, We've now completed a start-up service and a general inspection, and the car runs and drives flawlessly thanks to its very smooth engine (see film).

  • Interior condition:

    The interior is all original and has that wonderful old car smell. The seats are comfortable and in good condition, with the exception of a 30 cm rip in the front seat fabric on the driver's side (which in reality is a rip in a seat cover that was fitted in the 50's), good doors cards, and ok but worn carpets "see Pictures." A nice feature is the heating system, which includes a blower over the steering wheel, and a great-looking instrument cluster.

  • Exterior condition:

    The bodywork's metal is best described as "tank-like" and exceedingly strong. The car has a beautiful patina and a few battle scars, notably dents on the rear wings from parking scrapes that are easily repaired (see photographs). The paintwork is visibly degraded in places, but that's to be expected from an 85-year-old car. Simply leave it alone and enjoy it..

  • General condition:

    This car, a charming, sturdy, and solid example of vintage Volvo engineering at its best, needs to be utilized and driven since it has been sitting in its garage for many years.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
