SPECIFICS / BUILD INFORMATION
Wow!! Gorgeous condition, garaged kept, dry CALIFORNIA Volvo 1800ES Wagon.
California, rust-free, accident-free, smog-exempt, numbers-matching, unique wagon-coupe crossover 1973 Volvo P1800 ES! These have become very popular in recent years and have won several design awards.
The Volvo P1800 ES was the last in the P1800 series and probably the first of its kind and reminiscent of the mid-50's Chevy Nomad, and may be considered one of the pioneers in the niche vehicle segment. In England they call vehicles like the Volvo P1800 ES affectionately "Shooting Brake" as they were often custom made for hunters to carry their hunting gear and hounds.
Starting with the existing fuel-injected 2.0-liter P1800 E, Volvo simply lopped off the coupe roof and substituted a "squareback" style with long rear quarter windows, rakishly slanted C-pillars, and a frameless, liftup glass hatch. Aside from improving looks, the new roofline brought welcome gains in rear seat headroom and cargo space. The rear backrest could be flopped down to extend the flat-floor bay to a full five feet in length. As a stylish, comfortable, smaller hauler for the buyer who'd outgrown sports cars, the Volvo P1800 ES was and still is hard to beat. Due to the limited numbers of only just over 8,000 cars, the Volvo P1800 ES is a coveted collector's item today. For this reason, the wagon-coupe ES has achieved significantly higher prices than the Volvo P1800 coupe (one P 1800 ES recently sold for $73,900).
With its legendary "bullet-proof" 4-cylinder, fuel injected engine, the Volvo P1800 Series is renown for its safety and durability (one P1800 has clocked over 3 million miles). Until recently, this California P1800 ES was the garage-kept, 16-year "daily driver" of a mechanic, so it is in excellent mechanical condition, unfortunately, he recently passed away. During his ownership, in addition to properly maintaining the car, he even rebuilt the engine, so the new owner can expect years of continued enjoyment.
This Swedish classic is equipped with a 4-speed manual with over-drive transmission, 4-wheel power-assisted disc brakes, new tires, working gauges, lights, wipers, etc., so "Sven" is safe, comfortable and great fun to drive while getting lots of attention and receiving constant "thumbs up." A more rust-free example would be hard to find. With great chrome, glass and excellent panel gaps, the recently repainted straight body in its original Cypress Green (aka British Racing Green) with a tidy saddle/black interior, it is not only mechanically sound, but also cosmetically stunning.
Comes with a new spare tire, original jack, original leather tie downs for the cargo area!, service manual, etc
