Drivable renovation project. Came to Sweden from sunny California in 2016 and has been suspended pending renovation. Unusually good body and chassis. Needs new paint, rubber trims and renovation of the interior. Original color is beautiful light green, which came in 1967.

The car was built in Gothenburg in the autumn of 1966, exported to the United States, and sold new in Los Angeles. It rolled in a dry climate until it was returned to Sweden in 2016. The outside of the body was repainted many years ago in a copper-brown metallic color. This paintwork has been sun-bleached and flaked in areas. In the luggage compartment, the original color, a light yellow-green, can be seen (code091). The car is almost entirely rust free. Only a nail-sized hole behind the left rear wheel and one on the boot floor have been discovered. Underneath, on floors, in beams, and sills are all fine. The car starts easily and can be tested (B18 engine with a carburettor), and it has new brake calipers and pads all around, as well as exhaust systems, tires, and a battery this year. The old tank proved difficult to clean, therefore a new one is included. Because the new tank is not yet fitted, the car is now driven with fuel supplied by a separate petrol bottle in the engine compartment. The decor is authentic and untouched. The key is missing, but the car may still be started by pressing a button in the engine compartment.

It's a straightforward and cost-effective renovation project with a plethora of parts readily available throughout Europe.

  • Mechanical condition:

    It starts easily and runs well. Newly refurbished brakes On engine parts, there is some surface rust (see photos).

  • Interior condition:

    The interior is very deteriorated. Carpets, door panels, seat upholstery, and dashboard upholstery all need to be replaced for the car to look nice. Electrical and lighting systems will need to be inspected.

  • Exterior condition:

    The paintwork is sun-bleached and flaking. The doors and bonnet have a good shut line and only minor corrosion. For a renovation project, this is a surprisingly decent body. Bumpers are worn.

  • General condition:

    Excellent project car. A good bodywork is the foundation for a successful renovation. It also starts and can be driven, which is a big plus.
