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.

Volvo P1800S 1966

Volvo P1800S 1966 for sale

Exterior: Painted last year in the original white colour. Bumpers are new, and also some of the outer chrome details. New rubber around windows, and in the doors, trunk etc. Wheels were sandblasted, painted, fitted with new tyres and new hubcaps. The car looks very striking on the road and a white car with red interior must be one of the best colour combinations for a Volvo P1800.

Interior: The Volvo P1800 has a completely new interior, new leather, door panels, carpet etc. All instruments work, even the clock is working, and I think I have never had a P1800 with working clock! Still original headliner and dashboard in good condition. Original Volvo seat belts come along with the car. 

Engine: The engine has been rebuilt with new pistons and bearings. Most of the brake components are new and the brake servo is working perfectly. A wheel alignment has just been done which makes the car run very nicely and stable on the road. Fires up instantly and gives a very nice and crisp sound through the new exhaust. Very good acceleration and normal sound in gearbox and final drive. Receipts for the engine rebuild available. The car has been driven only a few hundred km after the rebuild.

History: This Volvo P1800S was produced in December 1965 and is year model 1966. The first owner had the car from 1965 to 1982. It was traded in at a dealership that became owner number 2 and then sold to owner number 3 that had the car until 2002 when it was taken out of traffic and came to owner number 4 that left it in the barn hoping the condition would improve over the years. But it did not, so in 2015 the car was sold the owner number 5 that started the restoration and worked on it until July 2018 when I bought it. And it was completed by my mechanic just recently here in April 2019. It just had a Technical Inspection here in Sweden and is ready to drive anywhere.

Volvo P1800S 1965

Volvo P1800S 1965 for sale

Exterior: Very nice paint and in the original graphite grey. This is my favourite colour for any classic Volvo and with the contrast of the red interior, it looks amazing. Most of the chrome parts are still original and in very good shape. Most of the rubber parts were replaced when the car was repainted around 10 years ago. The body has never been in any need of rust repairs and is still in its original form and very straight with good panel gaps. Also, the underneath of the car is in very good unwelded condition. Pictured here with a set of Minilite wheels but has also the original wheels with new hubcaps. We also have a set of 5,5 KPZ wheels if you prefer those.

Interior: The interior has new carpet, new panels and new seat covers in red leather just like it was original. All instruments are in very good condition, very nice dashboard and good original headliner. Also, the foam in the seats has been replaced.

The engine: In this car is very strong and happy, looking at the car and feeling the performance I am pretty sure the original kilometre reading is less than 100,000. But there is not full documentation to support it. Perfect gearbox and overdrive. Rear axle was just rebuilt.

History: Sold new in Sweden in 1965 and was later exported to northern parts of Norway and now back in Sweden.

Volvo P1800S 1968

Volvo P1800S 1968 for sale

Exterior: The car was repainted in original colour in 2015 by previous owner and still looks very nice today. The car was originally from Arizona and we can not see that there was ever any welding done on this car. Doors, hood and trunk have perfect fit and new rubber seals. Chrome and glass are very good. Wheels were just sandblasted and painted, then fitted with new tyres, hubcaps and chrome rings. Also, new headlights.

Interior: New dashboard, carpet, door sides and leather on the seats. The instruments are in excellent condition and they all work, and that should not be taken for granted in these cars. As you can see, the original Bendix Volvo radio is still in the car today and it comes with the original brochure. The car was equipped with air condition by the Volvo dealer in USA. It has today been removed from the car, but all parts are there and if you are from a country where an AC would be required in a car like this, it can be fitted again. (It comes along with the car)

Engine: New fuel pump and a complete new fuel tank fitted recently. The Stromberg carburettors have recently been rebuilt and adjusted so the car runs perfectly. Recent service with new oil, plugs etc. New bushings and joints front and rear, new shocks. Newly rebuilt brake servo, new wheel cylinders, brake shoes in the back and new master cylinder last year.

History: Mr George M Cook in Phoenix Arizona bought this car new in 1968. And he kept it until 2010 when it was sold to a Swede and brought back home. So, in total of two owners since 1968. The documentation of this car is absolutely amazing. There is everything still with the car. Original warranty certificate and booklet, original handbook, sales brochures, and many receipts from maintenance work that was done in USA. Even private photographs taken 1968. Brochure with all Volvo options available at the time, the dealer directory and even Mr Cook's Volvo owner identification card! The miles counter was changed for a km one when the car came to Sweden and the car has today a total of 220,000km.

Volvo P1800E 1971

Volvo P1800E Coupe 1971 for sale

The Volvo P1800 was coming to the final years of production and the last series was the P1800 E model. Now with fuel injection boosting the power to 130hp, improved seats and braking with disc brakes also rear. Production of the Volvo P1800E stopped in June 1972 and the ES was built until June 1973.

Exterior: Very nice golden colour that suits the P1800E model very well. The car was repainted in 2016 and many of the chrome and rubber details were replaced at this time. After this, the car was rust protected underneath. The original clover leaf wheels and tyres in perfect condition. All exterior glass in very good condition.

Interior: Nice carpets and seats. Dashboard is new (2016) and all instruments work.

Engine: This is the best engine that was ever fitted to a Volvo P1800. It gives the car enough power to live up to the sporty look. The engine was out of the car in 2012 when the block was honed, crank was grinded, then fitted with new bearings and piston rings. Also, a new rebuilt head was fitted. It has since covered only 480 km.

History: This car was sold new to an officer in the United States Army of Defence in California. He had the car until 2007 when it was sold off to Sweden. In Sweden, it had one owner until 2018. The shocks and all bushings in the front and rear end were replaced in 2011 and then a wheel alignment was done. It went through Technical Inspection in Sweden in June 2018. It comes with original spare wheel, tools and jack. Also, the original handbook and a binder full of documentation from the car over the years. This is a very nice Volvo P1800E that you can have lots of fun with many years to come. Most of these cars are very rusty or had poor restoration work done to them in the early years. Here is a solid California car that is up to date in terms of mechanics. Turn the key and drive away!

Volvo P1800S 1967

Volvo P1800S 1967 for sale

I have had many Volvo P1800 cars in my life, they are beautiful cars from every angle. But the driving experience never impressed me much, until I drove this car!

Exterior: The four wings and rocker panels have been replaced and then the car was repainted. All the gaps and lines are today in perfect harmony. Better than when the car was new! All chrome details have been replated or replaced and new rubber all around.

Interior: Black leather, red carpet, those beautiful instruments all working as they should.

Engine: The best part of this car is the engine. It is a B20 with fuel injection (from P1800 E-model) and then the block was drilled out to B21 and new pistons fitted. The head is modified with bigger valves (44mm in and 37mm out) KG10 camshaft, oil cooler fitted. 123 ignition, free flowing exhaust. The rear axle and front hubs were changed to the one from an E model so it now has disc brakes also in the rear. A bigger brake booster fitted for best possible stopping power. M41 overdrive gearbox. In all, this gives you a very nice driving experience of this Volvo P1800S. This is how the car should have been from factory! Great power with lots of torque, the cabin is very quiet and when that overdrive kicks in, you are cruising effortlessly even at highway speeds. It does not sound more than a normal P1800 and it looks original on the outside. This is the best Volvo P1800 I have ever driven.

History: This car was left standing after the first owner passed away in the early 90's. The second owner who bought the car completed a full restoration and put it into the condition it is today. It has covered approximately 20,000km since and is still today in fantastic condition.

Volvo P1800S 1967

Volvo P1800S 1967 for sale

1967 was the first year for the P1800S to have a straight thin chrome molding on the side. It makes the car look a little longer and sleeker. They also received a new mount for the driveshaft, and the support between gearbox and engine was made stronger. A small box for your cellphone was added between the seats. A new exhaust manifold that came already in 1966 gave the engine now 115hp.

Exterior: The original green color (94) looks amazing with all the new chrome parts on this car. These are Volvo original parts and not stainless aftermarket stuff. The car was repainted by a Volvo dealership 10 years ago and there was no rust repairs prior to the painting. It has correct gaps and still has the lines where it should to have such. In the pictures with Minilite wheels and also comes with a set of original rims in new condition.

Interior: New carpets and new leather. Looks very nice and clean inside. The speedometer has just been refurbished and also the rev counter was rebuilt. The instruments are always problematic on P1800 and this work will ensure they will work fine now for a long time. Also, a new speedometer cable was fitted together with a factory new fuel gauge. Original seatbelts.

Engine: The engine has just been serviced with new oil, filters, sparkplugs, air filters, points etc. Cooling system flushed and other fluid levels checked. The brake system had hoses replaced, new calipers front and new brake cylinders in the back. Brake servo has been checked and works fine. Carburettors were also rebuilt. Other new parts are: valve cover, radiator expansion container, bearing drive shaft, bushings for the gearbox, radiator hoses and clamps, heater valve, valve cover gasket, outer mirror, securing straps for rear axle.

History: This car was sold new here in Sweden in September 1967. These cars always had a lot of owners and this one is no exception. But since 1982 there have only been two caring owners for this car. From the very original look and feel of the car, we believe the km reading of the odometer is correct. Less than 70,000km! After working with these cars for many years, I strongly believe this is one of the best Volvo P1800 cars on the market today.
