Lot 072: 1973 VOLVO 144 SALOON

Motor Car Sale, H&H Sales Limited (13 September 2006)

Finished in green with brown upholstery, this particular example is believed but not warranted to have covered just 35,514 miles from new. Said to have had "one very careful owner" and to have been "garaged all its life but not used since 2002", 'TUK 443L' supposedly needed just a single hour's recommissioning prior to passing a MOT test earlier this summer. As well as stating that "the bodywork is in incredible condition for its age - rust what rust?" the vendor adds "the paintwork and brightwork are almost faultless, the interior likewise except for a mysterious split in one front squab". While, he goes on to say "the condition of the engine, gearbox, back axle and running gear is commensurate with a car having covered such a small mileage. All tyres have been renewed at some time and have only 10\% wear". Reportedly "fitted with a radio when new, and complete with spare filters, brake pads, fan belt, hoses etc (all apparently purchased circa 1975!)", we are further informed that the saloon "will be driven 90 miles to the auction with no qualms". Thought to have the makings of a potential concours contender, this remarkable Volvo is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until June 25th 2007.
