THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular P1800 is without a doubt one of the very best in existence, the car was bought by its original owner and 49-year caretaker in the spring of 1969. The car was delivered in California from Hayward Auto Imports with a sticker price of $4,260 on June 2nd 1969. 1969 was the only year the P1800 was offered in the beautiful color code 99, Mediterranean Blue, and also the first year the car came equipped with an AM/FM radio - the same radio that is in the car today. The car is very well equipped with sought-after options such as air conditioning, a $500 option, as well as the desirable 4-speed manual transmission with factory installed electronic overdrive. In mid 1969, Volvo began outfitting P1800's with fuel injection, making this example one of the very last P1800's to be outfitted with the much preferred carbureted set up.

Original in every way, this P1800 is a true time capsule that has been kept in immaculate condition by its original owner who has always serviced, polished, and maintained to the car to highest of standards. Living its entire life in California, the car has been remarkably well preserved. The original paint, interior, and decals are in amazing shape. The only change made to the original design is the addition of two chronographs installed on the center dash where the rear-view mirror originally was installed. This upgrade was performed in 1969 by the owner who in addition to being a car enthusiast, is a serious watch aficionado.

The car has been shown at several Volvo Club of America national meets throughout the 1980s and 1990s, where it has collected multiple best of class wins and is documented with photos that date all the way back to 1969. The original spark plugs that were in the car when it was delivered are still present, in addition to the original warranty and service booklet, radio warranty card, original and unused tool kit, instruction book, accessory book, original license plate, and the original pink slip. After 49 years in Northern California living its life in a climate controlled garage and having been freshly serviced with all fluids changed, a new master cylinder, oil filter and battery, this outstanding Volvo P1800 is ready for its second long term caretaker.
