Here are some pictures of the blind from my white ‘66 220 that was originally sold in Alaska.

On the 220 the blind is original but the fittings for the chain aren't. Neat job though and very useful in Alaska. A few pics of the complete car would be good, please.

Re your question about the jack, here is an earlier thread on the topic:

It is of course possible that the system may have varied from one model to the next, depend on the place of manufacture/assembly, and so on. My car, dealt with in the other thread, is a late model (1970), assembled locally from imported CKDs (completely knocked down units).

Thank you Derek, Zzaletel and Simonvolvo!

Until now I got back to the forum. I am attaching pics of what I understood and did, from reading Derek's post... and I have to say I am not fully happy as the upper metal tab is rather insecure. I guess this is what Derek was describing as "Works but not very efficient".

I could try placing it flat against the floor as described in that other earlier thread, but then I would have a spare rubber band unused... so I am guessing that if the cars had two originally, it must have been because the fitting is as Derek described.

Since I am not native in english and I don't always fully understand things because of unknown terms to me, pease look at the pics and tell me if I get it right. Did I?

Thanks,
Victor

Trying adding pics again...

They come up rotated to the left... and I can't manage to straighten them... so just imagine they are rotated to the right 90 degrees, please.

The straps look about right, very tidy. As I said, the top clip isn't ideal. The winding handle and the cast support arm can also be a cause of rattles and can benefit from some sort of stretchy strap if you have problems. A bit of sponge under the cast bit will keep things quiet but once you start adding things like that it all gets a bit untidy. OK, it's hidden by the spare wheel but you will know what it is like behind there. There are repro spare wheel covers with pockets for small items available for not too much money. You either like them or you don't but Volvo did sell them when the cars were new.

Thank you Derek! Glad to know that I got things almost right. I will see if I add some rubber pad or cloth under the metal head and the cast support. Just want to make it look correct. Perhaps a small rubber bumper only where the parts rub.

I would be intersted to see those spare covers... never knew Volvo offered them.

One other question: Would you know what this small black plastic holder on the passenger's side kick panel is for?

This is the side retainer clip for the parcel shelf. The shelf is flexibly mounted and is designed to deflect in an accident to reduce damage to the legs. Looks like you don't have the shelf.

Thank you, Derek.

Now I know I am missing a shelf and the base at the driver's side to hold it. Something more to look for... that plus a set of tools.
