My "new" '64 544

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just wanted to share a photo of my new 1964 Volvo 544. Poor thing had an engine fire and the previous owner was fed up with it so i got a pretty good deal. Luckily I had just dismantled a 62 544 rust bucket last year and I had the parts needed to get it running again. The biggest item being the wiring harness.

Anyway here are the pictures. Comments welcome. 

 

Cheers,

Dave

I'm still working out the details on the "new" wiring harness. The head lights were dim and I traced that to faulty connections at a connector so they are back on line. The light switch was bad so the dash lights weren't working, so that is sorted now. Plus a few light blubs and the blinker is working. Here are some pictures showing the burned up engine compartment. Most of the damage was on the carburetor side. Take a look at that battery, it still works!! I was amazed. I left it in as long as it's working.

The last picture shows the temp hood I'm using till I get the other one painted.
