 Volvo 144 ‘The Camel’
 
 
Here’s a brief summary of "The Camel"  1970 Volvo 144 which is available freshly prepared for c.£22,000.
 
 
 
History - 
  • EPH86H is a 1970 left-hand drive four-door car built into a long-distance rally car by Rob Henchoz for the 2012 London-Capetown Rally, in which it finished 6th overall and 2nd in class.
  • After being sold and reconditioned where necessary for the new owner by Amazon it did the 2013 P2P finishing 11th overall, 8th in class and winning a Gold regularity award.
  • After being sold in 2015 to me and again reconditioned and further improved by Amazon (details below) it was used as a replacement car for the European final leg of the 2016 P2P from Budapest-Paris, which it finished.
  • It was then reconditioned once more and has been in dry storage since then. It is is first-class, freshly-prepared condition, newly resprayed in sand/sable with a white roof
  • The car comes with a comprehensive technical file including DVDs of the original build, many invoices, a detailed account of the 2013 P2P rally, documents relating to the 2016 P2P, a bootful of spares including wheels/tyres, 
  • It is ‘on the button’ and ready to drive across the globe.
Brief Technical Details -
  • Safety equipment includes a full rollcage, 2 x full harness seat belts, plumbed-in fire extinguisher system, foam-filled fuel tanks, and a ‘cow catcher’ front protective bar.
  • Navigation equipment includes a Garmin GPS and a Halda distance/speed computer. Twin Recaro fabric-covered rally seats (very comfortable).
  • Two-litre B20 engine was fully reconditioned less than 5,000 miles ago with an uprated cylinder head, new water pump, lightened flywheel, new clutch, ceramic-coated free-flow exhaust manifold, and many other new parts.
  • Four-speed gearbox (no overdrive) with limited-slip differential.
  • Suspension fully uprated with recent new Bilstein shock absorbers, stronger springs, etc. Brakes uprated with new discs.
  • Body/chassis prepared and strengthened as necessary by Owen Turner of Complete Rally Services – eg sump guard, protected exhaust system, raised boot floor, etc. 
  • All fuel/brake/electrical lines run within car.
  • Twin aluminium foam-filled competition fuel tanks relocated above rear axle for weight/safety reasons.
  • Many sensible minor modifications to make on-rally maintenance and daily driving easier – eg built-in electric air pump/hose, daily checklist inside engine bay,  twin fuel pumps plumbed-in, secure safe for documents, twin coils, etc.etc.
  • Many other modifications which are too numerous to detail in this email.
The car is eligible for a wide range of first-class international classic rallies and with its unique history of success in the past ten years it is steadily acquiring its own historic provenance and value.
I would like it to go to a good home.
 
If you are seriously interested in the car it can be viewed near Colchester, Essex.
