C70 Coupe load rails WTB

Post by jsloden » Thu Aug 09, 2018 5:47 am

Looking for a set of C70 coupe load rails. I call it the roof rack. I've checked with all of the vendors and even though a few of them list them online, when you actually call they don't have them. Part no. is 9177964. They're NLA from volvo.

Thanks

Good luck finding one. People bought C70s to haul ass not loads.

Yes, but I would really like to be able to haul my bike and ass at the same time.

Get a bike rack that scraps the the trunk lid. You can fold it up and store it in the trunk when not in use.

I've had several of those on several different cars and hated them all. They never fit right and they look horrible. I know you can say just take it off when you're not using it but most of them are a huge pain to get on and off. This is why I am looking for actual rails. It's just a lot easier to deal with.

If you want to haul a bike get a trailer hitch receiver and mount a bike rack on it. There are many different styles available. I put a fork mount bike rack on a Pontiac Solstice and it worked quite well.

I appreciate all of the recommendations guys. I've really made my mind up on what I want here. I just need to find it. If anyone actually has one or knows where I can find one I would really appreciate it.

Thanks
