Lots of work to fix cause there are no body panels available new, but absolutely worth fixing. Almost 400k miles too, so its a good one.

I'm not sure what amazes me more - that this has almost 400K miles, or that Volvo had six digit odometers in 1972!

Try contacting Matthews Foreign Auto Parts in BHM, AL.  They had a lot of Volvo new and used parts and may have some or all the pars you may need or want.  They have a FB presence - look for David Matthews.

No... pretty much all of the exterior panels are available although stock is tricky these days. 

That car needs a fair amount of work, but it doesn't look too bad.  The $64K question is what's the condition of the rest of the car.  The bodies of these cars hide their sins very well.

FWIW, I found a new 1800 restoration vlog series.  The level of disassembly and restoration he's doing is a bit mind blowing, but probably what would be required for this car.

Oh man, I love the lines on these cars.
