Volvo 1800 S Restoration

Information

Make history

The body of this Volvo 1800 S was restored to brand new condition by Classic Job. The car was delivered stripped, and all glue residues and underbody protection have been removed. The bodywork was then completely stripped of paint in a paint stripping bath. The body proved to be in a beautiful and rust-free condition. Some sheet metal work was carried out. Both rear fenders showed poorly repaired minor collision damage which needed to be repaired. The rear panel between the rear lamps was replaced because of an earlier bad repair. After the sheet metal work was completed the bodywork was given a KTL coating in which the body was completely immersed in a special bath leaving a black coating on every metal surface inside and out and in every seam. After that the bodywork was smoothened, primed, and given a perfect new paint system. The Volvo 1800 S is being completed by the owner.

Volvo P1800 S, 1966

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.
