Highlights

  • Unveiled at the Brussels Motor Show in 1960, the P 1800 utilized a steel chassis and wore a dramatic, Frua-inspired but Swedish-designed body that was unlike anything the firm had styled before
  • After initially partnering with Jensen Motors to build the P 1800, Volvo later moved production to their Lundby plant under a new name, the 1800 S
  • For 1969, the 1800 S received a new 2.0-liter variant of the inline-four 'B20' engine, boosting horsepower to 118 horsepower
  • A four-speed manual transmission transmits power to the rear wheels
  • This 1800 S was purchased out of Pennsylvania earlier this year, and subsequently underwent a thorough cosmetic and mechanical restoration
  • Cosmetically, the car was repainted in a classic and period correct shade of Volvo Blue, the bumpers and trim pieces were chrome plated, and the cabin was retrimmed in tan leather
  • Further sorting involved rebuilding several major mechanical systems including the carburetors, brake system, fuel pump, and exhaust system
  • Tasteful details like the textured aluminum dash, blue-dial instrumentation, a push button radio, and plush black carpeting decorate the interior
  • It rides on a set of 15-inch steel wheels with polished hubcaps and fitted with striped whitewall tires
  • Mileage cannot be determined as original, however the five digit speedometer indicates 17,460 miles miles at the time of cataloging
  • This 1800 S is completed with a spare and original jack
