A unique opportunity to purchase a early Volvo P1800s project, with the desirable hockey stick trims and honeycomb grill.

Introduced in 1960 and popularized by The Saint television series, Volvo's pretty P1800 Sports Coupe, although no hairy-chested tire-shredder, was nonetheless something of a radical departure for the sober-sided Swedish concern. Based on the 121 saloon, the P1800 was built by Jensen Motors until production transferred to Sweden in 1963, and employed Volvo's rugged, four-cylinder, overhead-valve engine in 1,782cc form. Breathing through twin SU carburetors, this unit produced 100bhp, an output sufficient to propel the solidly built Coupe to a top speed of around 105mph. The running gear was conventional, with independent front suspension and live rear axle, while all versions came with servo-assisted front disc brakes.

The introduction of the successor P1800S in 1963 - S for Sweden where the car was now produced – saw improved quality control, and horsepower output upped to 108bhp. Fuel injection was standardized in 1969, maximum power increasing to 130bhp, with four-wheel disc brakes arriving at the same time. By the end of the 1960s, the model was beginning to look dated but the introduction of the Reliant GTE-influenced P1800ES sports estate extended its lease of life into the early 1970s.

This 1966 P1800 S was manufactured from the factory in light blue. Having been laid up for several years in storage, we have replaced the fuel tank and recommissioned the vehicle to get it to start and stop.

The bodywork has visible surface corrosion and the inner wings will require repair sections, however the underside is pretty solid.

The interior is scruffy but original and will require restoration.

This volvo will make great fia/fiva rally car donor alternatively it can be a running restoration project. A fantastic candidate being a early model in the famous ‘the saint’ colour scheme.
