Volvo 123GT. It was alway a joke theme about who will get his baby first between
him and my mother. When he passed away, my grand-mother drove the car until 1980
and handover the car to my father. I spent some miles in the car and I remember
driving it alone for the first time the day I got my license. Unfortunately, he

(Sorry to write in english). I am trying to locate the green 123GT bought by my grand-father in 1968 and sold around 1999/2000 by my father who died last year. After looking in my father paperworks, I have found an old swiss registry certificate of the car including the VIN and I decided to try to find this family car back to know a little bit more about her history. According to my uncle who didn't participated to the sale, the car was sold to a dutch collector or seller living in Switzerland at the time of the sale, but for the dutch veteran car market.
So any informations will be welcome to trace the car. Here are her vital satistics:
