SVS Is Northern California’s Classic Volvo Specialist (Models 1957 - 1998)

Some People Say Vintage

Volvos manufactured between 1957 and 1998 are considered to be Volvo Classics. Some prefer the term “vintage” Volvos. These cars are simple to drive, and simple to fix - if you know what you're doing.

Two Full Time Classic Volvo Experts

SVS has two full-time experts in the repair and maintenance of classic vintage Volvos, something you won’t find at Sacramento or San Francisco Volvo dealerships. For nearly 40 years Founder Robert Marcello and Technician Ron Flynn have been servicing these vintage Volvo lines:

122, 123, 142, 144, 145, 1800, 1800s, 1800es, 444, 544, 240, 242, 244, 245, 262, 264, 265, 740, 760, 780, 940, 960, S90, DL, GL, GLE.

The 122 runs like a new car! I can’t believe what a difference there is in its pick up and response! It runs so much more quietly too! It sounds and runs so much more like the first 1966 122 I had (which was only a 20-year-old back then)! Thanks again for giving this 122 a new lease on life!

1966 Volvo 122

I had the pleasure of leaving my 1969 Volvo P1800 in the care of Robert. He brought the old engine back to life again, fixed the brakes and fuel-lines, and gave a ton of input on how I could continue to work on the car. The price was ok too. My warmest recommendations to SVS and Robert. Exporting the car back to Norway is the only reason for not making SVS my go-to place.

We have complete confidence in SVS to successfully take care of our 1979 Volvo 244 now and for years to come. Nobody knows these older Volvos like SVS!
