Volvo P1800 S, year 1964. Colour Ivory white with a red leather interior. This ‘barn find’ Volvo P1800 S was imported from America. The car was found exactly as you see it in the pictures! Fully original and with a perfectly rust free body! This P 1800 shows clean and crisp panel fit, was never restored and the car has never had any damage. The body only shows a deeper scratch on the left front wing, the paint is duller than dull, some paint loss, and the interior shows signs of age and use far beyond ‘patina’. BUT this Volvo P1800 S is in such a fine and honest original condition that we decided to touch nothing! 


Mozes 1504

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 coupé 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 1800 "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 /coupé came onto the market in 1971.
