It is no secret that we love interesting cars as well as quality pieces, this P1800S is an example of both. The P1800 Sports Coupe seemed to come out of nowhere. It 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, but 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 118 episodes. Road and Track magazine wrote, (P1800) “is a true sports car of a type we can expect to become extremely popular”.
GR Auto Gallery is thrilled to bring to market this highly original, 1968 Volvo P1800S. The car is said to have had only 3 owners, purchased new as a fun sunny day car and resided in the states New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It is apparent by the cars originality that it lived a life of constant care and attention. It features one older, high quality repaint in its original dark green over its mostly original Camel leather interior. The core structure of this Volvo is excellent in all areas and appears to retain all its original body panels, floors and inner rockers. The paint remains in wonderful condition as does the trim and bright work. The interior is in excellent condition. The original dash is great with no splits or cracks, the original gauges show just the right amount of patina, the leather seats remain supple and door panels, sale panels and carpeting very nice. The car is powered by its bullet proof B18 inline 4 cylinder fed by recently tuned SU carburetors, 4-speed transmission with overdrive an drear wheel drive. The previous owner has owned the car since 2012 and recent services include: annual oil services and inspections, new coil springs, new shocks, new steering and suspension bushings, new factory correct perforated headliner and visors, new JVC stereo system and new center bearing. As a result, the car is an amazing driver, starts easily, shifts excellent, great handling and the overdrive engages flawlessly.
The vintage European car market is red hot. This 1968 Volvo P1800S is a must consider for any collector or motoring enthusiast who values unique cars that possess design excellence, originality, an mechanical fitness. The Volvo P1800 is poised to significantly increase in value and the example offered here is an excellent opportunity at this price.
