Some history about the car: The Volvo P1800 concept was first penned in 1957 after the demise of their first sports car attempt, the P1900. After selling only 68 cars, Volvo wanted something that was going to capture their target audience and broaden their appeal in the market, all the while eliminating their handsome but rather boring stigma of making Swedish economy cars. The car was engineered by Helmer Petterson (responsible for the venerable PV444) and design was handled by his son, Pelle, himself part of the Italian Pietro Frua design firm, which had just recently been acquired by Ghia. When Helmer drove the first prototype to Karmann’s headquarters, he was turned away because Volkswagen, Karmann’s biggest customer, threatened to pull the plug on their relationship if they helped build a car that could potentially compete with any of theirs. Disgruntled but optimistic, Helmer managed to leak the design into one of Volvo’s press releases which garnered international attention to the breathtaking design. After being seen in the flesh for the first time at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1960, Volvo managed to secure a contract with Jensen Motors to build 10,000 P1800s. Production extended from 1961 to 1973, with some 47,492 units ultimately being built. Today, these Volo’s, with their exceptional styling, has attracted the collector audience.
CHANGES IN 1969:

The carburetors were also changed for 2 Strombergs The intake and exhaust manifolds are combined with a pre-heating chamber. 1969 is the only year with this set-up on the 1800 series. However the B20B was used on the 120 series and 140 series until 1974.
