1971 Volvo 145 Deluxe B20A from Norway
Cheap and simple ride, endless space and style
Rust around windshield leads to leak.
Rear brake calipers need overhaul.
Windshield wiper motor was short-circuited when it fell apart, could easily be fixed. But lots of work hours, hidden behind dashboard.
Valve troubles, probably need replacement. Car drives anyway.
Unusually much space - little technology to hide, so you can actually stretch your legs everywhere, or carry 1 passenger + dining table with eight chairs inside the car.
It is very comfortable!
Style - everybody loves the car, and forgets that its performance is still that of a basic 60s car.
Very, very easy to maintain, any farmer anywhere can help you when in trouble.
Cheapest car I have ever owned! But the to-do-list is growing, so I need to upgrade to something else.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
