1969 VOLVO P1800S COUPE. 2.0 LITRE/CARBS. SOUGHT AFTER MODEL. MANUAL+O/DRIVE. £23,995.
The decidedly avant-garde styling of the P1800 was the work of Pelle
Petterson. Immortalised by
the hit TV series The Saint starring Roger Moore, the model
sold well, with 39,407 Coupes and 8,077 Estates produced between 1961
and 1973. This largely very original right hand drive, matching numbers
1800 S Coupe was manufactured in 1969 and was with the last but one owner for 12 years. The current owner purchased the car for his collection last year and has enjoyed the it but has to sell to make room for another recent purchase. It has recently (2017/18) benefited from an expensive and comprehensive professional bodywork restoration (with supporting bills) and now has very good bodywork, Red paintwork
and an excellent Black vinyl interior trim. It has the more powerful (original, numbers matching) 2 litre B20
engine on SU carbs with manual/overdrive gearbox. Fitted with a Webasto
sun roof. Just had new set of stainless steel
bumpers fitted. Seat belts have been changed to inertia reel for better
comfort. There is also a period Radiomobile radio and a modern Sony CD/Radio fitted. The large history file contains 20 old MOT's, old log books and invoices for over £32,000. In the last 5 years alone they add up to over £18,000 showing the level of the restoration completed.
