About This Site.

At the steering wheel of this business is me, the founder ET Carlin. I'm a former airline Captain with a long life passion for classic cars. My Swedish heritage gives me a weakness for classic Volvos. I've played around with these cars all my life.

My job took me around the world and gave me insights and many friends within this car hobby. Often when working in the US, I was told it was hard to find parts. I wanted to change this. In Sweden, it's not that hard (gradually getting harder though).

Approach to classicvolvorestoration parts shop

The LLC is US registered.

(Carlin Global Enterprises LLC, WY)

But I pilot this from Stockholm, Sweden (still advantages when it comes to Volvo parts). All parts ship from a warehouse on the US east coast.

Sometimes directly from the Swedish storage.

Parts are getting harder to source, thus some delivery time often occurs! Parts shown are generally available, but not at all times in stock!

There's no storefront. No pickups. All web-based.

No operations during weekends or holidays!

To be as effective as possible during my workday, and considering different time zones, my preferred way of communication is e-mail.
