Volvo's P1800 Sports Coupe seemed to come out of nowhere. The car took everyone by surprise when it arrived in 1961 as Volvo was considered a sober Swedish automaker known to most Americans for plain looking, utilitarian family cars. The beautifully shaped low roof and curvaceous lines combined with a Ferrari-style “eggcrate” grill and modest tailfins was completely unexpected of Volvo, however the design was as wonderful as any car available at that time. The P1800 landed a leading role in the then hit television series, The Saint, where actor Roger Moore was widely seen dashing around in his yellow P1800 for 1128 episodes. Road and Track magazine wrote of the P1800…”is a true sports car of a type we can expect to become extremely popular”.

The 1965 Volvo P1800 offered here is attractively finished in Black over Red interior. Verbal history indicates that the car has had three owners, the most current owning the car since 1980. The car was recently taken from long term storage and treated to a dual carburetor rebuild, new clutch kit, radiator re-core, complete brake service including new booster, fuel tank etc. The car remains quite original. The interior including original carpet, dash and gauges, door panels and original style bucket seats. The car features a repaint and the original stainless, chrome and other bright work still show very well. Mechanically, this car loves to run as it pulls strong in all gears, shifts good and brakes straight and the services indicated above ensures mechanical fitness.

The Volvo P1800 has gained much traction as of late on the collector car scene. The vintage European motorcar market is red hot right now as these cars appeal to all four corners of the globe. The design of the P1800 is noticed and the car is poised to significantly increase in value. The example offered here, although not perfect, remains a very handsome and sporty driver that has a future. A car that can be thoroughly enjoyed as is or restored to a concours level all will staying smartly invested. No wrong decision here.
