This car was driven by Dr. Spencer Reid near the end of the episode "In Name and Blood" when he was going to Supervisory Special Agent Jason Gideon's cabin to look for him.

Here are two other screen shots of the car in that episode. It was very dark so it was difficult to get good shots. I had to adjust the brightness/contrast with Adobe Photoshop for these two to make the car visible enough. (The main image on the page did not have to be adjusted so that is how it appeared in the film-- only with the edges cropped so the size would not have to be reduced).

To add further information: This appears to be "horizon blue" (color 89) or "pearl white" (color 79). It is difficult to tell in the dark (and because film often uses a blue tint to indicate shots at night). If it is 89 then the interior would be black leatherette (aka vinyl), but if it is 79 then it would be red leatherette. There was speculation that this was a turquoise 121, but the turquoise color is too dark to appear that pale in this lighting and the 121s were not created for the US market but the 122S was. This car would likely have used the B18 D engine and either M40 four speed manual transmission or BW35 three step automatic transmission (the latter caused high fuel consumption). My guess is that the model code for this one would be P13244V E. A breakdown of that code in order: P= Passenger vehicle. 1= sedan. 3= two doors. 2= B18 D engine. 4= created for export to US & Canada. 4= M40 four speed manual transmission. V= steering wheel on left side. E= model year 1965. If it used the three step automatic transmission then it would be P13246V E. This is all my speculation based on research mostly using information from volvoamazonpictures.se.
