If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
EXTREMELY RARE 1967 VOLVO 123 GT FOR SALE - PROBABLY ONLY AROUND 1500 MANUFACTURED AND PROBABLY ONLY A FEW DOZEN IN DECENT SHAPE IN THE UNITED STATESI bought this car 25 years ago from the owner of a Volvo repair shop who had restored it for himself. He said the parts had no more than 500 miles on them. The mileage when I bought it was 26,491 (I have no idea the actual mileage at the time). Today the mileage is only 66,345. Four speed with unique electric overdrive lever. A real “head turner.” It is red with black vinyl interior. Mechanically everything is very sound. It runs great and cruises on the expressway when you flip the electric overdrive lever (unique to the 123 GT). Also unique to the 123 GT (in distinction to the 122 S which was mass produced) are fog lights, tachometer, different dash, and I believe the engine. Also, different, but not as manufactured is a push button starter that my mechanic installed because keys kept breaking in the ignition, and because I am no mechanic I had the dual SU carbs replaced with a top of the line Webber carburetor. I kept the carburetors. I added brake lights around the license tag for added safety. Also added are seat belts (not modern seatbelts).The body and interior are in very good shape (see pictures). Imperfections I know of other than what you can see in the pictures are: some chips and a little discoloration in the paint but looks great when waxed; small rust issues back right corners under the the tail lights; one tail light does not match exactly but can be found on eBay; a couple of support straps under the front seats are broken but I have so far not noticed a difference when sitting in them; the heater fan is weak but I have never been very cold. I have had the same mechanic for over 20 years and you are free to contact him.When searching the internet about this car I found many narratives similar to this one:"Volvo’s original intention as a manufacturer was to produce around 5,000 examples of its 1967 123GT. In fact, final build numbers fell well short of this mark, with a figure of 1,500 units being most commonly quoted. There is a Worldwide Volvo 123GT Register, and it tells an even more interesting story. At the time of writing, it indicates that there are only around 31 cars out of the entire worldwide production that are known to exist in the USA today.”Please do your own search to confirm. Last time I looked there was not one for sale in the world. Its name when I bought it was “Chilibean”, I kept her name, feel free to change it.I will miss her!!
