THE VOLVO P1800 ES

Introduced in 1960 and popularized by The Saint television series, Volvo's stylish P1800 sports Coupe, was something of a radical departure for the sober-sided Swedish concern. Based on the 121 saloon, the P1800 was built by Jensen Motors until production transferred to Sweden in 1963. Breathing through twin carburetors, the sporty Volvo was a true 100mph-plus car. Fuel injection was standardized in 1969, maximum power increasing to 130bhp, with four-wheel disc brakes arriving at the same time. By the end of the 1960s, the model was beginning to look dated, but the introduction of the 1800 ES sports estate extended its lease of life into the early 1970s. These remain among the most collectible and iconic station wagons ever produced.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The 1972 P1800 ES is considered, by Volvo aficionados, as a highly desirable model with its small bumpers and sport wagon coachwork, featuring the frameless all-glass tailgate. This exceptional example was ordered from factory with special options of electric overdrive and AC. The car was originally owned by a Volvo collector in the Mid-West. It was then acquired by a marque devotee who cared for the car until he stopped driving in his 80s. In 2017, this P1800 ES was purchased by the consignor, who was specifically drawn to the car's low mileage and original condition. He orchestrated a sympathetic restoration, maintaining the best original components wherever possible, including the original dash pads, seats, door panels, headliner, handles, mirrors, and glass. The brightwork was professionally polished and the AC system serviced, while the radiator received a rebuild and the bumpers were replaced. Finally, the P1800 ES was re-dressed in its original color—stunning light blue metallic. As close inspection will corroborate, the standard of the paintwork is exceptional—creating a mirror-like finish.

These fabulous P1800 ES sports wagons are renowned for their longevity and stamina, with several examples showing original miles in the upper six-digit figures. This Volvo has only 56,000 miles on the odometer and, in its current mechanical condition (complete with functional factory optional overdrive), is likely to run for many years with continued care and maintenance by an appreciative marque enthusiast.
