We are looking at a very lovely and quick 1964 Volvo P1800. The car was fully restored and mechanically overhauled a number of years ago and has remained in very good condition since.
Work was carried out with a high degree of thoroughness and professionalism. Since then the car has been extremely well looked after and driven with love.
During the restoration the bodywork was taken back to bare metal. The body-off was repaired were needed before being resprayed. The result is very good with nice and thin, correctly aligned panelwork. The well fitted brightwork too is in gleaming condition. The rims and hubcaps shod in correctly sized Michelin tyres are in good shape. The red coloured finish was applied excellently and bare a few light blemishes is still very neat.
The interior trim was fully reupholstered. The red carpets have been well fitted and are in good condition. The seats come out of a Porsche 911 and the attention to detail shows here as well with even the electric seat adjustment having been repaired. The 911 seats give just that little more support than the standard issue seats without standing out like a sore thumb. The steering wheel is still
original, having developed a fine patina over the years. The door cards, rear bench and headlining were all reupholstered during the restoration.
The engine is absolutely the star of the show. It starts with your first peak under the bonnet, revealing a most pleasant sight. The engine block was resprayed and the engine now has lovely gleaming chrome air-filters. It is not all looks with this P1800 either as it has a 2.0 litre engine. The original capacity was enlarged, given new valves and a stainless steel spaghetti manifold and exhaust as well the chrome air-filters and retuned carburettors. Following the professional retuning the running road results were impressive to say the least with 146 Ps at 5,600 rpm and 226 Nm of torque at 3,400. It has a manual 4-speed gearbox with overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears. Besides the substantive engine work all suspension parts and the brakes were fully replaced.
This car certainly delivers when it comes to road holding and handling. Travelling long distances in comfort is no problem thanks to its overdrive. There is a fist-sized dossier detailing the whole restoration. Receipts as well as the rolling road printout and general descriptions have been retained.
This, in short, is one very fast and splendid Volvo P1800!
