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

This Volvo 1800ES, one of just 5,008 built in 1973, the final year of production for the model, is an original California market car. Built in May 1973, one month before the last 1800ES emerged from the Göteborg, Sweden, assembly line, this example was sold new by Haste & Hirsty Inc. of Studio City, California.

The 1800ES has benefitted from a bare-metal respray in its original color of Gold Metallic and presents beautifully. Chrome has been re-plated, and all stainless trim has been polished, while the cars mechanical components has been refurbished.

As Volvo's flagship Sports Coupe, the 1800ES was nicely equipped from the factory, with a four-speed gearbox with overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, a rear-window defroster, reclining leather-faced bucket seats, a tachometer, an oil pressure gauge and a locking center console. The only two options offered by the factory, but not originally specified for this example, have been added: air conditioning and an AM-FM radio. The car also has a set of ATS Classic alloy wheels, offered in period through Volvo dealers. A set of four correct pressed steel wheels with trim rings and center caps is included. A Nardi steering wheel, a popular period accessory, adds the glow of genuine wood to the sporting interior.

The Volvo shows just under 67,000 miles and is offered with the owner's manual and the original window sticker. It is the winner of two best-of-show awards at national Volvo events.
