The Volvo P1800e is normally considered the best of all Volvo P1800s. The robust fuel-injected engine runs slightly better than the typically carbureted versions. It is also the definitive and most developed version of the series. The previous owner imported the car in 2015 from the United States. The person from whom he bought it had planned to perform a complete restoration but never got around to it. When he realised he was too old to undertake the project, he decided to sell the Volvo.
The car had been stored in a barn since 2000 and clearly needed restoring. The car was originally delivered in 1971 in California, USA. Upon arrival in the Netherlands, it underwent an immediate full Nut and Bolt restoration. The car was basically intact and equipped with overdrive, power steering, and air conditioning.
The P1800e was completely dismantled and repaired where necessary. All body repairs were professionally executed, and the car was restored to its former glory. The body and chassis are in excellent condition. After all repairs were completed, the car was stripped to bare metal and repainted in the original colour. The quality of the paintwork beautifully complements the elegant body. Attention to detail continued when it came to the mechanical aspect of the car. The engine, gearbox, and the rest were completely stripped back. Every gasket was replaced, and each part was inspected and replaced if necessary. All motor mounts were powder-coated and equipped with new rubbers. The lightweight rims were also stripped to bare metal, repainted, and fitted with new tires.
To improve handling the Volvo has now been equipped with Koni shock absorbers all around. Since the main goal was to give the car a “new out of the box” look, all lighting and logos were replaced. And what a result it is!
The interior upholstery was completely renewed using fine leather in the original colour. The car’s inside is as good as its outside. Stick your head into the cockpit, and the beautiful Mota Lita steering wheel immediately grabs your attention. Upon closer inspection, we see that the previous owner installed a Vintage Air Slimline air conditioning unit. The progress of the restoration has been beautifully documented in a photo album, invoices and parts list. The P1800e is the best of the P1800 generation, and this one is among the best at the moment. An absolutely top specimen and the perfect classic for special occasions or even to enjoy daily.
