1969 Volvo 164 3 Litre Manual. Fabulous car in Red with unmarked Grey leather upholstery. In the autumn of 1968 Volvo presented the Volvo 164. It was a development of the Volvo 144 but had a more prestige-oriented position. The principal difference in technical terms was that the Volvo 164 had a 3.0-litre, in-line, 6-cylinder engine under the bonnet. This engine had been developed from the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder engine that was introduced for the 140 Series at the same time, in 1968. From the beginning, the 164 had two carburettors and it was later also available with fuel injection. This was the first time in 10 years that Volvo was able to offer a 6-cylinder car. The last time had been when the taxis in the 830 Series were built. However, when it came to cars aimed at private buyers, Volvo had not had a 6-cylinder car for almost 20 years, since 1950 when production of the PV60 ceased. As far as the exterior of the 164 was concerned, the front had its own styling. The bonnet was longer, to make room for the larger engine. The shape of the front also imparted greater prestige owing to the large grille. In the interior, the seats were totally different, the materials were more luxurious and leather upholstery could be specified. The Volvo 164 was produced between 1968 and 1975. Most of the cars produced during the last year were sent to the USA. This stunning Volvo has covered just 68,000 miles from new and was in father and son ownership for 46 years, it is the very rare 1969 model which has twin Zenith Stromberg carburettors. The Volvo has been lovingly cherished and many thousands of pounds has been spent in the last three years to include complete gearbox rebuild, new electric fan, new water pump, carburettors rebuilt, leather seats treated, new clutch master and slave cylinders, new front and rear calipers and pads, new battery, new exhaust and new fuel pump. We have a comprehensive history file with the car containing bills, invoices and old MOT certificates. The car is obviously now mot and tax exempt although the Volvo does have a current mot through until September 2019. The car starts on the button and drives as it should, mechanically very strong with a good solid body and great coachwork and upholstery. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. * Free Delivery Within The U.K.*
