Factory Rally Racer: 1970 Volvo 142S | 5th - 1970 Southern Cross Rally

December 09, 2015

I so often find myself in the right time and place to see some amazing cars. By complete chance I came across this car while trekking down Australia's East coast last August, and what a classic it is.

This 142 Coupe was built in 1970. It has a 1,986cc inline 4 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
