SPK 480M was first registered on the 1st August 1973 and is finished in Sea Green with Tan leather upholstery with automatic transmission. This is the first Volvo P1800 Estate we have had in over fifteen years and they are becoming increasingly rare in RHD format. Little over 8000 P1800 Estates were produced and roughly a quarter of these were made for the UK market. According to club sources, around 1000 original UK cars have survived making this such a rare find.

This particular example had just one owner from 1987 to 2016 and still retains its original registration mark. The car comes with a significant amount of history with photographs of restoration work and over £12,000 worth of receipts. In recent years the Volvo has been treated to a full re-paint and back in 2003 had a major body restoration carried out by Classic Restorations Ltd in Alyth. This included fitting brand new front wings and the cutting out of corrosion and fabricating in new metal work. The car was clearly very original at this stage and required a major body rebuild. More recently in 2015 the P1800 has been treated to new front and rear brake calipers, new brake hoses, handbrake cable, handbrake shoes, new servo, master cylinder and link rod kit. The Volvo was also serviced by Strathmore Volvo main dealer.

The Volvo P1800 ES is a remarkably usable, practical classic that offers reliability and real confidence. The fuel injected engine runs superbly and the Borg Warner three speed automatic transmission suits the cars character and likely use. Its relaxed, comfortable and was built for endurance, long distance motoring and should not disappoint. SPK 480M is an excellent driver, it will be fully serviced and MOT tested for its next owner and should prove great fun to own. The car present superbly with an excellent body, stunning Sea Green paintwork, impressive chrome and a lovely aged, clean and smart original upholstery.
