Volvo P1800S 1965

Volvo P1800S 1965 for sale

I have managed to find yet another very good Volvo P1800S from 1965.

Exterior: There was a body and paint restoration done back in the 90's. Then the car got new front fenders and new rocker panels and painted again in the original colour. It still looks fantastic today! Some of the chrome parts are new and rest still in very good original condition. Wheels have been sandblasted, painted and fitted with Vredestein Classic tyres. This car sits right in height and gets a lot of attention every time I go driving.

Interior: Still original red leather seats that have been upgraded with headrests that came a few years later on these cars. New door panels and a new carpet make it look nice and fresh inside. All instruments work (not the clock) and they are in stunning condition. Previous owner added a little armrest and this is easy to be removed if you should not like it. However, I have to say after driving a while with this car, it is very nice to have.

Engine: The original B18 engine starts very easily, has a great sound and feels very strong. Carburettors have just been rebuilt, new clutch cylinder and also the brake booster that can be an issue in these cars are working fine. And it is the original brake booster, and not the aftermarket plastic ones. The previous owner had a rear axle from the Amazon fitted and that gives this Volvo P1800 a lower rpm at cruising speed, and this is very nice with today's roads and also it will save you some gasoline. The original rear axle is also available. Otherwise this P1800S gives you a very nice and solid feeling on the road. It is a car I would not hesitate one minute to take for a long road trip through Europe.

History: This Volvo P1800S was sold here in Sweden and was registered for the first tine on the 14th of June 1965. The first owner kept the car until 1973 when Tomas from Stockholm bought it. And Tomas kept the car until 2006 when it moved to Gothenburg area and stayed there until recently. It is a very well documented car with original owner’s manual, a nice binder with all collected documents for the car over the years including Technical Control and invoices for parts and service work. The last owner liked to drive this car all over Europe, so it was always well maintained. And my driving experience of this car is far better than many newly restored cars I have had.

Maserati Bora

Maserati Bora AM 117 4.7 1973 for sale

Exterior: The Maserati Bora does NOT go unnoticed! I can just imagine back in 1973, this car must have been looking like a spaceship roaring through the tiny streets of a remote village in Italy. This is razor edge design at its peak from Bertone and Giugiaro. I think just about every Italian car that I like was penned by Giugiaro! The original silver paintwork is spectacular just like the panel fit. It was repainted some time during the 90's at Campana in Italy. All outside details are in a very nice and original condition. Rolling on original style Campagnolo wheels with Pirelli tyres. The original hubcaps are in “like new” condition.

Interior: For an Italian sportscar, the Maserati Bora is actually very comfortable, and I would not hesitate to take this car for a long road trip through Europe. The long seats looking almost like beach chairs are very comfortable and the original leather from 1973 is still in a fantastic shape. You can make everything new, but it will never be the same feeling as when it is the original! The instrumentation is like a small aircraft, but still tasteful and with function. Everything inside this car works the way it should. And black interior will always look good, even in another 20 years from now. The car is super clean and original even when you open the rear hood and also in the rather large size for a sportscar front compartment.

Engine: The 4.7l V8 engine in the Maserati Bora makes the right sound to match the outside appearance. And with the five-speed dogleg gearbox, it is fantastic to drive even on today's roads. The carburettors have just been cleaned and adjusted. Otherwise this car has had only the normal service work done to it over the years. I would think it is not easy to find such original and untouched Maserati Bora today. Please also note that this car was sold new in Europe, the cars sold new in USA often have less power due to the emission restrictions during this time.

History: This car was registered in Sweden for the first time in Sweden on November the 11th in 1976 and it was then imported from Germany. It has been featured in the Maserati Bulletin, and also in the book World of Sports Cars by Frank Oleski. There are pictures of this Maserati Bora with the same license plate it bares today. It comes with Swedish Technical Control (TUF) documents collected over the years. And the km can be verified here. The last Technical Control here in Sweden was done 2018-06-26 and the car is ready to drive. I feel it is important to emphasise this is a very original car that has always just been carefully maintained, used only in sunny and dry conditions while most other Italian sportscars from the 70’s have already been restored perhaps more than one time.

Fiat 850

Fiat 850 S 1969 For sale

Fin och rolig lite Fiat 850S från 1969. Har blivit omlackerad vid något tillfälle. På denna och som tydligen många av de här bilarna så har förar dörren öppnats för hårt vid något tillfälle så den har fått en lite skada där. Men för övrigt väldigt bra skick.

Invändigt är bilen som ny! Super fin röd klädsel och fina original gummi mattor på golvet. Även innertak och all instrumentering är i nyskick.

Den har mycket fin dokumentation med alla original böcker man kan tänka sig. Även först registreringsbevis finns och lite gamla räkningar och protokoll.

Mercedes 300 Adenauer

Mercedes 300 Cabriolet W186 for sale

Exterior: The Mercedes 300 where produce from 1951 until 1962 and from W186 there where 642 Convertibles built. Then 65 more of the W189. This car had an extensive restoration done here in Sweden during the years 1987-1990. After this the car has been used only as an enthusiast car on sunny days. The black paint is in a very good condition just like the chrome. All doors and panels have a very good fit and close the way they should on a Mercedes. The big soft top is also new and has a very good stretch. This is a car that gets a lot of road presence!

Interior: When you sit inside a Mercedes 300 Adenauer Convertible it is easy to understand this was one of Mercedes finest cars in the production line. The detailed chrome on the dashboard makes a perfect contrast towards the red leather. For me the best colour combination on any classic car is black with red interior and this big Mercedes W186 really comes alive when you pull the top down and you can see the bright red leather as the car is driving by. And the condition of the interior is just stunning. Every little chrome detail inside the car is just perfect, just like carpets and headliner. The beautiful time period correct radio in the centre of the dashboard.

Engine: Starts easy and runs very nice. Normal service and maintenance over the years. Normal sounds from engine, gearbox and final drive. During the restoration completed 1990 the bearings and all gaskets in the engine where replaced.

History: This Mercedes 300 W186 Cabriolet sold new here in Sweden on the 4th of February 1954. It comes with binder showing all receipts for the restoration. The car had odometer reading 21908 in 1990 when the restoration was completed, and it is today 28300. But the car has been used every year and has been taken trough technical inspection (TUF) here in Sweden almost every year. The first owner of this car was a company by the name of Osram Electric. After this there is a full owner’s history by date and name.

Citroen DS 21 1973

Citroen DS 21 Super 5 from 1973 for sale

Exterior: The car had a light restoration around 10 years ago when it was repainted. Some body work was done, and it received new rubber seals etc. It is today looking very presentable in its grey metallic colour. Exterior details such as door handles bumpers etc are also in very good condition. Rolling on time period correct looking Wredestein tyres. No matter what you think about the design of a Citroen DS, you have to admit that this car has a lot of road presence.

Interior: As you can see this car has a Pallas interior in black leather. It makes a great contrast to the grey outside. The best part with this entire car is for me the wonderful patina on the leather of this car. It is still very nice and soft, not broken anywhere, but you can see it has been around for many years and has been very well taken care of over the years. All of the instruments are working as they should and also all functions such as heat, fans, wipers etc. Nice carpets and headliner.

Engine: Starts easily and rise up like it should. Was recently fitted with new hydraulics. It has a new exhaust and the engine sounds and runs great. For me the five-speed gearbox is a big plus in comparison with a semi-automatic and shifting gears in this car is very smooth. This is a DS Super 5 and gives 106 horsepower which was quite a lot back in 1973.

History: This Lovely Citroen DS 21 was taken into traffic the first time on the 8th of May in 1973. First owner had the car for 10 years and the it changed hands again in 2007, 2014 and 2019. It comes with the original handbook and a binder containing collected receipts and inspection documents over the years.

SAAB 93 B

SAAB 93 twostroke 1958 for sale

The SAAB cars came around in the early 50ies with SAAB 92 and then 1956-1960 came the SAAB 93 now with 3-cylinder engine and 33hp.

Exterior: Very nice-looking paint with some smaller signs of use. Very nice chrome! For me personally the SAAB 93 is the ultimate of two stroke cars. A 92 is cool but the engine is a little bit to weak. The 96 is also a very nice car but just not as aerodynamic looking as the 93.

Interior: What is unique with this car is that the original interior still looks like new today. All original headliner, seat covers etc and it is all in fantastic condition. The blue interior also makes a great contrast with the red. All instruments work as the should.

The engine feels and sounds silky smooth and is all original. If you have never driven a SAAB two stroke, I can tell you it is a very special feeling. Despite the low horsepower these cars have, it feels like you are going very fast.

History: This SAAB 93 was registered here in Sweden the first time in January 1958 and the first owner had the car until 1988. The look and the feel of the car indicates that km 75.000 is correct. This car was also standing in High Chaparral museum collection for many years.

AC Cobra replica

AC Cobra 289 FIA Replica for sale

Här har vi en riktigt fin AC Cobra Replica som är i stort sett ny. Bilen har rullat ca 20-30 mil efter den blev besiktigad och godkänd. Trots att detta är en bil av 2018 års modell så behöver den aldrig mer besiktigas.

Utvändigt: En otroligt blank och fin yta för att vara en glasfiber bil. Snygg färgkombination och en lagom höjd på bilen. Den har justerbara dämpare runt om så om man vill ha den lite lägre och hårdare kan man justera det. Tidstypiska fälgar och däck med centrum låsning.

Invändigt: Stolar i svart skinn, de klassiska instrumenten och en fin Motolita träratt. Stolarna är justerbara framåt och bakåt.

Motor: En fabriksny 302 helt original som levererar 231hk vilket är max vad man får lov att ha i den här typen av fordon. Nu är den besiktigad för all framtid men med tanke på att bilen har en tjänstevikt på 1085kg så är det mer än tillräckligt med effekt för de flesta.

Data: Kaross: 289 Fia Chassie 427, Motor 302, Förgasare: Holley 750, Växellåda: Mustang, Slutväxel: Jaguar 3:54, Kuggstång: MG, Bromsar: Girling huvudcylindrar och Wildwood ok, Tank: Rostfri ca 45l, Drivaxlar: Original Hawke cars, Hjul: 6 pins original Trigo med original Shelby spinners.
