Not so!
It’s a not-completely-rusty 44-year-old Swede with four-on-the-floor and a clean-looking engine. You’d think that 140 coupes would be worth something, but this one couldn’t find anyone to save it from The Crusher.
Once again, the “thermometer” speedo reminds me of my ’68 Volvo 144.
Those SU carbs look to be in good shape. In fact, the entire B18 engine looks good.
Perhaps it will yield some of its parts for surviving 140s before being shredded and shipped to a Chinese steel plant.
