Vehicle Overview

Originally a California car from a Volvo enthusiast family that migrated to Florida a few years ago. It was bought from a dear friend in Florida, who recently passed away. He flew out to Calif., purchased it and drove it back to Florida. This 1800E is Steele Blue Metallic with Black Leather and a 4 speed manual transmission with overdrive. It is a very nice rust free California car that had all  trim moldings, light assemblies, and glass removed for a repaint many years ago. Mechanically it is very sound and has gone through our shop including new a water pump, engine tune, brake work including a new master cylinder and parking brake cables and much more. The interior has also been previously refreshed including the seats and dash. All chrome is in very nice condition including the grille surround and bumpers.
If an automobile ever represented more than met the eye it was the Volvo P1800. The unassuming P1800 was Volvo's sports car produced from 1961-1972 combining simple attractive styling and good performance with Volvo reliability.  The P1800 was developed out-of-house led by Volvo engineering consultant Helmer Petterson with the purpose of gaining entry into new markets with Italian styling and promised performance.  The design was credited to Italian coachbuilder Frua - but was in-fact drawn by Petterson's son Pelle Pettersen who later gained fame as one of Sweden's greatest yacht designers and an America's Cup skipper guiding two Swedish challengers. The P1800 prototype was first shown in 1957 but took four long years to reach production before British sports car maker Jensen began building the P1800 for Volvo in 1961. Examples of the P1800 have been driven three million miles.The P1800 originated with a 1.8-Liter in-line four-cylinder engine producing 100 hp mated with a 4-speed manual transmission in a sturdy 96.5 in wheelbase chassis.  The coupe was the only body style offered prior to 1972 and quickly found an enthusiastic following.  Popularity probably also came from the regular appearance of the white P1800 coupe driven by Roger Moore in the popular British television series "The Saint".  The P1800 might have found an even greater following if not for the fact that the 1961 introduction came on top of the Jaguar XK-E -priced only slightly less than the E-Type.Ongoing development of the P1800 ultimately led to a larger 130 hp 1986 cc B20E engine, in this model, with a revised camshaft Bosch electronic fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes.  Top speed was quoted at 118 mph (190 kph).  This is an honest clean, rust free, well- detailed automobile without being fussy which can be enjoyed for many many more years  The car drives wonderfully, steers and stops straight and shows good power and is a delight to drive.  The car presents itself as a restored car with average paint. The chrome is excellent and has excellent panel fit.  The seats are beautifully finished in leather not vinyl the dashboard is in very good condition showing no cracks as these cars are prone to and the gauges are all clear.  The front and rear seats and door panels are also in fabulous condition with good carpet that may be original and has been well maintained.
This is truly a superb late production Volvo P1800 with all of the benefits of ongoing development that can be owned and driven enthusiastically ready for its next caretaker.
