"The car is in excellent, untouched original shape. It starts and runs fine. There isn't any rust. It has been stored for many years, but everything is now back up and running. It may require an engine service before it can be utilized because it hasn't been serviced in a long time."

"The car is in excellent, untouched original shape. It starts and runs fine. There isn't any rust. It has been stored for many years, but everything is now back up and running. It may require an engine service before it can be utilized because it hasn't been serviced in a long time."


This car was built in Kalmar in the autumn of 1974 and was sold new to a university professor in Princeton, New Jersey, in the United States. After nearly 30 years and 15,000 miles, the first owner sold it to a car collector in northern Norway, in Senja, 2000 kilometers north of Narvik. The car was purchased in the spring of 2011 by Hans Hedberg, test manager at Teknikens Värld, and a coworker, who drove it for a long reportage journey through northern Norway and Sweden that summer. (Please review the attached papers.) The car was stored as a flagship in a major Volvo collection once it returned to Gothenburg. It was picked out and registered in the summer of 2020. The car was then driven in the summer of 2021, and it is now time to sell it.
Very nice and well-kept condition. There have only been three owners and 107,000 miles have been driven. There is no rust damage, however there are some little dots on the entrance thresholds. The car was repainted in its original color in the 1990s. Very nicely done and professionally painted, although few minor blisters can be spotted on top and in the back (barely visible). Overall, Im impressed. Booking viewing at Autocenter Väst, Djupedalsiden 1, Bohus, weekdays 9-18, tel: 0735 07 0411.

  • Mechanical condition:

    It starts readily and runs smoothly. Excellent gearing and braking. When an engine has been sitting in a warm garage for ten years, it may require new spark plugs and cables, as well as an oil change.

  • Interior condition:

    Seats, carpets, door cards, and headliner are all complete and in good condition. Everything is original. The sunroof and power windows works, but they need to be lubricated

  • Exterior condition:

    Unusually well-kept and nice. No damage, no rust.

  • General condition:

    One of the cleanest and most clean late 164s we've seen. It will be in excellent shape with a little polish and a service.

Facts about the model

Volvo 164E, var Volvos finaste bil med rak 3 liters Volvisexa på tre liter. Denna bilmodell efterträddes 1975 av 264-modellen, med 2,7 liters V6:a (PRV-motorn). 164:an med raka sexan var dock mycket populär i USA och Kanada, bland akademiker och läkare m.fl. tack vare Volvos kvalitéts- och säkerhetsrykte. Därför valde Volvo att fortsätta bygga bilmodellen i Kalmar (handbyggd, ej löpande band) ett år till, och bara för USA/Kanada-marknaderna, trots att efterföljaren som byggdes på Torslanda redan såldes för fullt i Sverige. Eftersom aktuellt exemplar är tillverkat oktober 1975, är den internt, hos Volvo, angiven som årsmodell 1976, men Volvo valde att sälja alla som 1975:or för att inte konkurrera med 264:an som lanserades 1976 i USA.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
