Volvo 120 series.
More information on this Volvo:
One of two 120 Volvos dumped by the side of the road in northern Portugal. This one has the earlier style grille arrangement so is probably early 1960s. It looks quite scruffy so whether it would still run is open to some debate! I doubt its condition has improved since this photo was taken in 1999.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Volvo above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 120 series would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Volvo 120 series, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the 120 series, and similar old Volvos, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
