1975 Volvo C304 6×6 PrivateCars - Richmond - 3 views
This 1975 Volvo C304 is finished in red and powered by a gasoline 3.0L straight-six mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox and 2-speed transfer case with shift on-the-fly capability. Original designed for Swedish military use, the truck was imported to the US in 2005 and subsequently refurbished under previous ownership. The seller acquired the truck eight years ago for use as a promotional vehicle for his business. Features include 6-wheel drive, portal axles, and vacuum-actuated lockers, along with additions including electronic ignition, Corbeau racing seats, and more. This C304 is now offered with a clean Utah title in the seller’s name.
The truck was repainted in flat-green by its first US owner who also conducted various rust repairs and body work according to the seller. The truck was then painted white and most recently covered in bedliner and then painted red by the seller. Accessories include black diamond-plating on the lower surfaces and a pair of rear mounted Jerry cans.
8-lug steel wheels are mounted with six 38.5″ Super Swamper tires, a full-size spare is mounted in the cargo area.
The interior features rubberized coating throughout, as well as seven Corbeau racing seats finished in black with red inserts. Diamond plating is applied to the door panels, and the odometer currently displays just under 19,400 kilometers, about 5k of which have been added by the seller over the last eight years.
The rear-facing seats fold downward according to the seller, and are mounted at each side of the engine cover.
A gasoline powered 3.0L OHV B30A straight-six is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and produced roughly 130 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque when new. Additions include an electronic ignition, flame thrower coil, and an electric radiator fan. The oil and filter were recently changed and the seller notes oil seepage from the rear main seal.
The selectable 6-wheel drive system features lockers for all three portal axles. The seller notes minor corrosion where the body mounts connect to the frame, as well as below the window behind the driver’s seat.
