Volvo only used to make spacious and practical cars didn’t it? Not true, this Volvo P1800 is one of the most dainty coupés of its day. Add to that fine and reliable handling. Volvo introduced its 2+2 because the Swedish car manufacturer saw a gap in the market for a sports coupé in Europe and America. Helmer Petterson, who also designed the Volvo PV444, led the project. The design came from his son Pelle under the watchful eye of Pietro Frua. The first three prototypes were indeed built by Frua between 1957 and 1958.
The P1800 we have on offer is an early one, from 1964 to be precise. A beautiful car with one of the most popular finishes. The car is fine restored condition as the exterior, interior and its mechanics show.
The paintwork is in very fine state and in short seamlessly fits in with the rest of the exterior. Brightwork, rubbers, lighting parts and windows: the car is spotless. The panel alignment can only be a Swedish quality product, with the doors opening and closing with ease. The car just beams out quality. Inside the theme continues. Stylish pristine black upholstery with contrasting red carpets match the colour of the paintwork outside. The brushed aluminium dashboards insets and part green dials are in peak shape. All in all we cannot but conclude the car makes a very good and well cared for impression.
The Volvo P1800 is more of a GT than a sportscar and that implies many P1800’s are used just as much as the brands other practical models. To highlight this; a certain Iry Gordon entered the Guinness Book of World Records with his Volvo P1800 as the passenger vehicle with the highest mileage: 3.25 million miles, which equates to about 5.2 million kilometres. In other words our P1800 is still good for another 4.8 million kilometres. The mechanic condition is 100% up to scratch, in keeping with the rest of car’s condition; restored, perfectly maintained and in full working order.
The transmission is sure-footed and the B18 engine runs as you are used to from Volvo: supple and endlessly.
Finally we would like to point out the condition underneath this P1800 as it is very good indeed! No nastiness or signs of botched repairs and rust is nowhere to be found.
Want to buy a problem-free, chique and fine classic coupé? This P1800 could just be the ticket.
