1970 Volvo P1800 to 'S Specification For Sale

The story of the Volvo P1800 began in 1957, Volvo wanted a sports car to compete in the US & European markets. Volvo turned to Jensen Motors, whose production lines were under-utilised, and they agreed a contract for 10,000 cars. The Linwood body plant, manufacturer of Pressed Steel, was in turn sub-contracted by Jensen to create the unibody shells, which were then taken by rail to be assembled at Jensen in West Bromwich. In September 1960, the first production P1800 (for the 1961 model year) left Jensen for an eager public and soon after this the elegant Coupe was popularised by “The Saint” television series.

As time passed, Jensen had problems with quality control, so the contract was ended early after 6,000 cars had been built. In 1963 production was moved to Volvo's Lundby Plant in Gothenburg.

The Volvo P1800E upgraded to ‘S specification’ offered here at Autostorico, was first registered in August 1970 and is finished in Green with Tan interior trim. Having been well maintained regardless of cost by its previous owner, this superb rust-free example has undergone recent works including; bare metal respray including panels being replaced were necessary, full interior re-trim by Richard Felton, carburettor upgrade, re-wire, new Continental tyres and service.

Supplied with a current V5 registration certificate, MOT Valid until July 2020 and a history file which includes invoices and other related paperwork.

This stunning P1800S offers a great opportunity to own an iconic car which should prove to be an astute investment, due to very low numbers still being on UK roads.

Viewing strictly by appointment only.
