5700 miles approx since built but this will go up as it is driven.

Car was built in 2018 to take on a promotional trip as well as to SEMA 2018. Original car had very little rust but all rust was repaired along with the majority of the floor was cut out and replaced with new sheet metal to fit the new drivetrain. Car was taken complete to bare metal and primer sealed before paint. All trim was shaved along with any unnecessary holes. Rear flip out windows were deleted with solid seals and glass. Glass was replaced as needed and tinted. Procar seats were installed and the OE rear seat was recovered to match. Headliner was replaced with suede and new black carpet was installed. Door cards were covered with a red, white, black plaid to bring back some of the 60s style, and yes a bit British for a Volvo.These can be easily changed if buyer wants something else.

The car has extensive sound attenuation and is ready to go. I would not heasitate to get in it tomorrow and drive to New York. I personally have put the 5000 miles on this restoration and love it. I really hate to see it go but it's time to build something new. This Volvo will cruise 75-80+ mph all day long getting 35-45mpg, and has no shortage of power..... I have seen 46mpg on a tank cruising at 65-70 mph and this economy should get slightly better after 15-20k break-in miles. My wife has spent 3k miles in the passenger seat and prefers this car to many of my others. We easily did 500 miles a day on the week long trip with little to no fatigue.
