CC Outtake: Classic Volvo at Work

122 at work

An original classic more than forty years old is not an everyday sight in most parts of the world, and one still used as a work vehicle is even rarer. 

This Volvo 122 Amazon station wagon in its native country, with a load of wood boards and tools in the back and a tub with more tools on the curb next to it, is still working for a living, 44 to 51 years after it rolled off the assembly line.  With its large roof rack, it is ready to carry seriously big loads and probably does on occasion.  It stands out even in a country where wagons from the 1980s like the Volvo 245 and Chevrolet Caprice are everyday sights.
