I am still trying to find out who the previous owners of my car were and where it has been driving around all this time. I can trace back the whereabouts of the car from 2003 and on, but before that all is unknown.
What do I know. The car was built early in 1967 in the Volvo factory at Goteborg, Sweden and was reported ready at 9 march 1967, 12 april 1967 it was delivered in the USA. As far as I know the car always has been dark green code 93 with 310 upholstery. Now I am sanding down the car I can confirm it never had a different color, I found some 5 or 6 layers of paint but these all are green and primer paints (I am feeling a bit guilty now I will be the first owner who is changing the color.. 😉 ). Unfortunately the engine and gearbox are no matching numbers, as the car was originally delivered with a B18 and now it has a B20 from a later 1800E injection version.
In the “ID Tags” topic I already asked Volvo Sweden for more information, see https://volvo1800s.com/2014/04/08/id-tags/. It wasn’t much information, but I was glad to have something. They send me the following info:
