I just got one today. To bad Dennis passed away and that’s how I ended up with it. Was going to buy it in ‘08. But bought Cadillac instead. I’m from Sweden and I am born the same year as mine and I am happy to have it. Motor no good. Should I rebuild or do a conversion to the 5.0?
I always thought it was an ugly car.
uk spec cars had multi spoke turbine style wheels. love these cars.
I bought one myself. A 1978 Volvo 262C Bertone Coupe. Rode like a tank. But a well appointed car. I still have the crowns.
Sweet car. I ve seen exactly 1 of them here in Ireland (Stillorgan to be precise, back around 85). Love the PRV V6 engine, Dad had it in a different car around the same time.
In one word: beautiful. Don t sell the original wheels, you ll have a hard time to find them again in this condition. Thanks for pulling this Volvo from your garage and taking the time to share it with us.
Very, very nice but next time pop the hood and let s hear it -)
I trying to rebuild my moms 78 262c now. I wanna redo it for her. Needs alot of work but its pretty solid with not lot of rust. I think engine is no good though.
1. Overhaul the oilpump 2.Get a new waterpump
I ve just bought myself a 1977 264 GL, these cars are so full of character, they are great! Your car is beautiful, I m in an Oz Volvo forum, can I share your video? We enjoy seeing these classic Volvo.
Shit it looks so old these days
I have a 262c just like yours located in Southern Indiana for sale $800.00, buyer to pay shipping and alll sales tax, etc. Note the troublesome PRV engine has cracked heads. A couple grand and you will have a sweet ride. Placing on craigslist next week asking $1,000.00. Ken Blair [email protected]
The engine s are TURDS! B-230 f motor w/turbo would have been superior if installed.
My friend have 1 of these. It has gone 300 swedish miles and still smells new.
I remember one reviewer describing it as a pregnant refrigerator with a beret on it :)
My mistake, I meant Lambda Sond.
