I am the 5th, and now, longest owner of this mint Volvo. I bought it from Allen Funt (Candid Camera fame) in 1987. The original
owner kept it for 7 years and is the person that is responsible for it's incredible condition. Never driven in rain, carefully garaged for winters, for it's first 21k miles. 

Originally purchased in Maryland, (Volvoland, Glen Burnie), it passed through a couple of collectors who detailed it for show and then to a lawyer in Texas who took Best of Show in 1983 at both East and West coast VSA National meets. Allen Funt bought it from him and had it shipped to California. He owned it for a year or so at which time I bought it as a "very nice" car. 

Later I found out it's history and decided to preserve this fine original example. Hence I no longer drive it. It is a garage queen, usually trailered to shows. 

They are only original once.
29,400 miles, original unrestored.
