"Sweden's Hottest Volvo"
 
this custom 1967 Volvo Amazon was voted as the hottest volvo to represent sweden at SEMA. it puts out 600hp and was built by Mattias Vocks... unfortunately that's all i know about it... the interior is a little utilitarian for my tastes, but that plexiglass (i assume) transmission cover is AWESOME :thumbsup:

Is it wrong that I'd take the original? But I still like the modified one.

that is pure sexy to me. and talk about a daily driver.

That interior doesn't do the car any justice. Maybe it's just me, but I feel that classic cars like this one should have classy, elegant interiors. It doesn't have to be the same as the original (because then it'd be a restore more than a mod) but a roll-cage and see through gearbox cover is a bit over the top.

Man, I love that. My daughter has an old Volvo DL wagon like that, I'm gonna show her this and see if she's interested in a little upgrade ;)

Wow, I like that! The interior is great, personally I like having the transmission exposed like that. looks good.

I LOVE IT!!! As for the interior... it has just enough to get the job done of covering most of the metal... as a performance oriented guy, I'm thrilled that its not weighed down with sound deadening mats, and filled with huge speaker boxes. Also the clear transmission cover is freakin sweet.

me likes.....

sweet body work, wheels, and the interior has a nice personal touch. i like original in classics too, but this is a sweet job

The interior is not to my taste either, but wow, he did a really elegant job on the outside. I love seeing unique customs from manufacturers other than Ford and Chevy. Thanks for sharing!

That is is nice ride....

Chuckles 11-23-2006 06:27 PM

Not exactly my style, but I definately see why it's so appreciated.

Scorps 11-24-2006 07:12 AM

YA seen those I would rock that any day

Ambition 11-29-2006 05:06 AM

That is one bad-ass machine. I've never seem an old Volvo restored like that.

newtx 11-29-2006 09:08 PM

I like it. No problems with the interior or exterior.

Rippley 11-30-2006 05:37 AM

Awesome ride, is all there is to say there. But, and I may be missing something, but I don't think there's any glass/plexi - just a tubular frame around the transmission. Look like the tranny's nekkid to me...

I'm thinking the same thing

That looks terrific. I like the interior. It looks like a P1800 dash, the stock one is nothing like that. The see-thru tunnel is a bit odd but at least there's something nice looking underneath. I love the way they've kept it all Volvo.
I'd want to drive that!
