Volvo 1800 ES, year 1973. Colour pale blue metallic combined with a black leather interior and blue carpet. This fantastic right hand drive (RHD) Volvo 1800 ES is in a seldom seen super original and never restored condition! From new the automobile has driven only 51.500 Miles and the car is still in excellent condition! The car shows all the original factory details and decals. In 2008 and 2010 the car has won two prizes for ‘best Volvo 1800 ES’ on Classic car and Volvo events. This fine Volvo 1800 ES drives perfectly. The car features overdrive and a period correct Blaupunkt AM radio. This must be the most perfect Volvo 1800 ES for a British Volvo enthusiast/ collector!

The Volvo P 1800 is undoubtedly the most elegantly, exquisitely and dynamically designed Volvo of the twentieth century. The Volvo P 1800 was designed by Per Petterson who was employed at 'carrosseria Frua' those days.

The Volvo P 1800 came onto the market in 1961 as a coupe and was initially built at Jensen’s in England. The P1800 became world-famous for the series of "The Saint" in the 1960s, with Roger Moore as Simon Templar in the leading role.
After building 6000 cars in 1963, production of the P 1800 was relocated to Sweden, and the car was then named the P1800 "S" (Sverige).
In September 1969, the P1800 E came onto the market with a Bosch fuel injection system, a modified dashboard and had disc brakes all around. The P1800 ES estate/coupe came onto the market in 1971.
