Volvo 144.

More information on this Volvo:

Where to start with this bunch of scrap cars? Next to the lorry cab is a facelifted Volvo 144 saloon probably dating to the early 1970s. On its roof is a tiny little Fiat 500. Alongside is an Austin A30 that someone has tried making into a convertible. Below that is the reps favourite - a Mk2 Ford Cortina. Also on show in this scrapyard is a Renault 5 and a Morris Minor. The photo dates to 1995.

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 144 would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Volvo 144, 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 144, and similar old Volvos, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
