FOR SALE: A stunning LHD 1800E boasting rare ATS alloys, power steering, and recent £30k expenditure!


Steel Blue Metallic paintwork (102), Black leather upholstery, 15-inch ATS alloy wheels, Air conditioning, Manual transmission, Power steering, Four-wheel disc brakes, Driver and passenger-side rear view mirrors, Vintage-style radio with auxiliary input, Front and rear seat belts, Spare wheel.

The iconic lines of the P1800 look magnificent in Steel Blue Metallic, the paintwork retaining a deep shine and uniform colour throughout. Looking closer, there are no unsightly dents to report and the panel gaps are pleasingly consistent all round. Better still, in 2018 the car was treated to all new brightwork and seals costing in excess of £3,700 for the parts alone. Overall this stunning 1800E presents extremely well, with only a handful of discreet paint blemishes to note on very close inspection. The current owner has dedicated a huge amount of time and money (circa £30k) into really bringing the car up to scratch both mechanically and cosmetically – and it shows.

Following a recent refurbishment by marque specialists Templar and Wilde Limited (costing just shy of £5,500) the elegant Volvo cabin presents to a very high standard indeed. Open the door and you’re greeted with unworn seats, a handsome wood and leather-trimmed dash, unmarked door cards, and pristine carpets throughout. A subtle vintage-style radio has also been fitted with the added benefit of an auxiliary input. What’s more, this example also boasts a fully operational air conditioning system, as fitted from new.

Lifting the bonnet reveals a remarkably tidy engine bay. In excess of £19k has been spent on the mechanics alone since 2019 with marque specialists Templar and Wilde Limited, including a £6k full engine rebuild to factory B20E specification. Additional works undertaken by Templar and Wilde include the installation of power steering, gearbox and clutch repairs, a new fuel tank, fuel pump, cold start jet, heater fan unit, and plenty of fettling to ensure the car performs “on the button”.

The 1800E starts first turn of the key and idles effortlessly up to temperature. It’s a wonderfully easy car to drive, with a smooth manual gearbox and very respectable 130hp. The recent upgrade of power steering makes all the difference and certainly adds to the driving pleasure at lower speeds.

The car sits on rare and desirable ATS alloy wheels, an upgrade from Volvo in the early ‘70s. The wheels have been fully refurbished to a very high standard and present with the correct black centre badges. They are shod in a matching set of Yokohama tyres that retain ample tread having seen little use. Out on the road the disc brakes perform admirably on test, bringing the car to halt with ease. The calipers are finished in red and look great alongside the sporty five-spoke alloys.

This handsome left-hand drive 1800E was first registered in California in 1971. Believed a one-family owner car from new, it was imported into the UK in 2017 with all taxes paid on arrival. The V5C shows only one UK keeper, the current owner, who has spent in excess of £30k bringing the car up to his exacting standards, both cosmetically and mechanically. A stunning example ready to be driven and very much enjoyed by its new owner for many years to come.
