History of the 1961-1973 Volvo P1800/ 1800S/ 1800E/ 1800ES:
Volvo was best known for making sturdy but somewhat stodgy sedans in the mold of the PV544 and the 122 Amazon. In the 1950s, Volvo flirted with a sports car with the fiberglass P1900, but the quality was miserable as were the driving dynamics of the car. Volvo took another stab at a sporty car with the P1800 in 1961.

Design of the car was until very recently attributed to Frua of Italy, but in reality, it was a family affair, done primarily by a then-young Pelle Pettersen the son of 544 designer Helmer Pettersen. The car at least looked Italian, very much a product of the 1950s rather than the 1960s with neat tail fins and a short greenhouse with a tall beltline. Early cars were assembled by Jensen in West Bromwich, England.

Quality of the Jensen-built cars was, however, not up to Volvo’s standards (and the cars were notoriously rust-prone) so production was shifted to Volvo’s Gothenburg plant in Sweden in 1963 and the model name transitioned from P1800 to 1800S. A few years later, in 1969, the original 1. 8-liter B18 engine was replaced with the 2. 0-liter B20 for an added 18 hp. Both engines came with dual, English-made SU carburetors. In 1970, the 1800E came with a host of changes including a new instrument panel.

The last major variant was the 1800ES, a two-door wagon with a glass tailgate. Nearly as lovely as the coupe, it remains one of the most successful variations on the sports wagon theme.

Today, parts support for the 1800 remains good, and several specialists are available to take good care of owners.

The price is for the car restored. Delivery time for the restored car is about 4-6 months. Please look at a similar Volvo 1800 we restored for a client by clicking the following link: - details above

Nobody thought that Volvo, which is known for its solid reliability, could design a car like the sporty P1800 but the 2+2 Coupé was a terrific sports car. For capacity reasons, its production was moved to Great Britain. In April of 1963, the car was renamed P1800 S – the “S” standing for “made in Sweden”. Then ...
