    custom volvos?

    I know there are loads of volvo amazons that have been modified over the years, in fact theres probably more modified than standard i reckon.
    Does anyone know if there are any later models that have been done-eg the 740/940s, I know theyre not very pretty, but the engine bays are big enough for most v8s and as many drag racers will confirm, the rear ends up to the extra power.
    Anyone know of any?
    cheers. paul

    Its a common swap in the states. Jags that Run do a motor mount kit & manual for swapping in a SBC.

    Here's an interesting Scandinavian based Lowrider I found recently





    I suppose Volvos are regarded more as donor cars for their rear axels over here.

    Al recently had an earlier Volvo that he slammed and put the later alloys on. Sold it on to a club member. Maybe he has pics ?
