This automobile has been a race car since birth and was never used as personal transportation. Its initial history as a factory prepared rally car is evidenced in part by the plastic rear window installed by the factory for racing purposes.The car was acquired by IPD personnel in the early 1970’s and prepared to GT3 specifications for competition within the SCCA. It was initially campaigned nationally out of Los Angeles and subsequently brought back to the NW where It continued to be raced locally, winning the NW Regional GT3 Championship in 1984. Obtained by the current owner in 1993, it continued to be raced within the ICSCC as a GT3 car. For the last five years, track time has been limited to the vintage venue within the Oregon Region of the SCCA. During this time, it was also approved for participation with SVRA for their featured races at PIR in Portland, and the VSCOA for the national Vintage Festival XXXI race at Road America in 2016 where Volvo was the featured marquee.•Full roll cage•tightened body with fiberglass hood, fenders, nose, air dam, flares and trunk lid•2 sets American Racing alloy wheels•Six point seat belt•Halon fire suppression system•820 engine built by Loyning Race Engines, Milwaukie, OR.Increased to 2130 cc 3.623 bore and 3.1’13 stroke 13 to 1 compression venolia pistons, Carillo rods, Delong camshaft Head ported & prepped with relocated & enlarged valves by KG Racing, Sweden Custom designed billet aluminum roller rocker bridge by KG Racing, Sweden Beoch dyno readings of 2l7hp. •Crank triggered MSO ignition•Original Italian 4S0C0£ Weber carburetors•ACCU sump and oil cooler•Tri·Y headers by Stan’s HPaders, Auburn, WA•Flow Master muffler above floor board for track clearance•S-speed ZF t..ransrnission•Aluminum flywheel and facing disc•Limited slip differential•Dual Tilton master cytinder$ with Bias bar and proportioning vatve•                1800£S rear axle with disc brakes•164 front calipers with custom built rotors by Coleman Machine•Fuel cell
