      I had to make it 2 door myself. They never offered it in a 2 door wagon:

      It's a '66, but has one-year-only '64 grilles on it.

        The coupe doors are 4" longer and have a different rear curve than the fronts on the four door wagon.

          This is awesome. I would just convert it to Motronic 1.3

            To do that I'd need a harness, ECU, CPS/bracket and toothed pulley, right?

              I like your shell choice. Lot of 122 fans in the Seattle area.

                  I'm not familiar with the 2.5 1.0, you definitely will need those things, probably afm, tps, and icv as well. I could be wrong though.

                      Can't tell where your at with the build. So engine in and intermittent starts? Engine grounded?

                        The E30 was a complete chassis. It's staying a complete chassis. Running gear and all. I'm going to put the Amazon body over the complete E30 rolling floor pan. I'm sure the intermittent start can be figured out, so I'm not letting that hold me up at the moment. Right now I'm working to gently peel back layers of sheet metal. From the outside>in on the Volvo and from the inside>out on the E30. On the 4th I was trying to handle some mechanical stuff so I wasn't rolling around in grinder dust all day. I'll save that for the weekends.
