I'm actually heavily involved in the R forum as the moderator there, but, life has changed for me a bit, and so will my car situation!<p>I just recently picked up a 1974 164E automatic with only 57K original miles. It's actually in really good shape. Purchased the vehicle from the nephew of the guy who purchased it new. Car has only been well-maintained . . . never "re-done," except that the interior has been re-done in cloth. <p>I'll be posting pics soon. I've actually got my friend (Volvo master tech) looking at it for me since I've got a broken hip now and can't really do much. Only a couple of mechanical issues: 1) low idle when engine is warm, 2) A/C is low on freon, 3) creaking noises in front suspension.<p>Future plans include: 1) new paint job, 2) new leather interior, 3) convert from auto to manual, 4) replace all suspension bushings with poly bushings, 5) performance springs/shocks/sway bars.<p>I know P2 cars very well, but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to these cars. So any advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
