VIN *1446364-486396* was built in March of 1974 in Gothenburg (Götheburg), Sweden. It was delivered to a Lady in Santa Barbara, who used it faithfully for 40-some years until she got too old to drive. Thus the car sat in her garage for years until she had it towed to a local Volvo specialist to be revived. The good mechanic went through the entire brake and fuel system, even eventually ended up buying the car from her. A few months later he offered it up for adoption, and we got lucky being at the right place at the right time.
