Finally got around to spend some time on the Volvo wagon. This time we upgraded to these very rare 123GT reclining seat mechanism. These are actually made by Recaro for Volvo. Now I can…well…recline. Besides, the added chrome makes the car go faster.
Factory tachometer and a hard to find center console is next.
“Buckets and console” plus factory tach. Sounds like an American muscle car, huh?
I am pleased to find out that these are being reproduced again as they are wagon only and always seems to be beat up or as in my case: missing.
However, I could not bring myself to install them as one corner of the bumper was pretty ugly and I don’t want to spend money on re-chroming.
After some digging around in my friend’s attic I finally found this. This is not 100 % perfect but it will work great.
There! Finally a complete rear bumper and all shiny. Looks great.
See how the work started here
