Boxy Volvos from yesteryear are nothing out of the ordinary. However, this 1981 262C Bertone is not your usual Swedish brick. For starters, its design was inspired by an American car–the Lincoln Mark IV–and final assembly was performed by Bertone in Torino, Italy rather than Sweden. The coachbuilder added a custom greenhouse, a rakish angle to the windshield, and a leather-and-wood interior, transforming an ordinary 262GL two-door into a chopped-roof luxury coupe.
This particular specimen, one of 912 made in 1981, even has a four-speed manual gearbox. The owner of this 159,000-mile rarity states, “I have put over $3k into it and I drive it weekly with no problems. The work on it has been done at Swedish Motors here in Boulder.”
