1973 Volvo 164E

Introduced as a luxury car in 1969, the 164 would survive for 6 more years, but see less than 50,000 made. Under the hood was a 6-cylinder, and, on cars like this one, the E meant fuel injection. The profile and rear of the 164 was similar to other Volvo sedans, but the front, with the unique grill, single headlights, and smaller, circular grills made the 164 instantly recognizable. This car's patina is fantastic, especially the star on the hood, highlighting the bracing underneath.
