Classic Volvo’s are a thing of beauty and while it is not particularly rare to see a car from 1966 on the road today, it is quite rare to see one that is daily driven with 3,000,000 miles on it. Just take a second to let that sink in, 3 million miles….. I know people who get rid of cars every two years and people who think 100,000 miles is high mileage. It is not and Irv Gordon of Long Island is proving that.
When Mr. Gordon purchased is 1966 volvo P1800 brand new he did not expect to break all the records for mileage but it turns out his love for the car, and love for seeing America has meant that year after year the miles kept adding up. Now as he approaches the 3 million mile mark Volvo has decide to run a campaign promoting his nearly fifty year 3 million mile journey.
Of course 3 million miles does not happen by accident. Gordon attributes his feat to his religious maintenance of the car, performed by experts and the care he has given the car over the years. The results speak for themselves.
