"Mechanically operational and recently inspected, nearly complete with parts remaining to be installed."


Originally sold in Östersund by Nordin & Co. The first owner kept the car for ten years. Then it changed hands, but it remained in Jämtland all the while. It was stored away in 1982 and remained in a barn until 1991.

The new owner started a restoration, and it was completed in 1994. The car was repainted in its original color, and a few minor dents were repaired by a professional panel beater. The paint is still in excellent condition, with no bubbles, scratches, or rust. According to previous inspection documents, the car seems to have covered around 15,000 miles in total. It hasn't been extensively used after the restoration 30 years ago; instead, progress has been made at a leisurely pace. The car passed its inspection without any issues in the summer of 2023. A wealth of documentation accompanies the car, including its history, owner's manual, and workshop manuals.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine was replaced at an early stage. The engine runs smoothly and idles without any irregularities. However, it feels weak and slightly uneven under load. Likely, the injection pump needs to be overhauled. There's a spare engine with an additional fuel pump, as well as an extra gearbox. During the restoration in the 90s, the engine received new pistons, piston rings, main bearings, and connecting rod bearings. In recent years, a new fuel feed pump was installed, and the injectors were overhauled and pressure tested. The old pistons are still available. The tires appear to be in good condition but are about 30 years old. It lacks inlet channels for ventilation air to the heater unit on the right and left sides.

  • Interior condition:

    The original upholstery is in good condition, with a small tear on the driver's seat backrest. Door panels, carpets, and other parts have been removed. The door panels are in good condition, with a minor burn mark on the front edge of the driver's door side. A new headliner is included. See pictures for reference.

  • Exterior condition:

    The car was repainted over 30 years ago, and that work has held up well. The car has been mostly garage-kept since then. Some spots and surface rust have appeared on the rear bumper. A new windshield has been installed, and the rest of the glass is in good condition. The undercarriage and trunk are in excellent condition, and rust has hardly ever been present on the car.

  • General condition:

    A sound car with a straight and rust-free body and good paint. Almost everything is available to make it fully complete and ready. Many useful parts are included that are sufficient to bring it to a good operational condition.

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