1971 RHD car in rare original one-year-only factory turquoise For Sale

1971 Volvo P1800 E, right-hand-drive in rare original one-year-only factory turquoise This is a European market right-hand-drive car. The car has it original and very rare one-year-only factory turquoise color (color code 104) making this a very rare and special car. Original Volvo 1800 are getting increasingly difficult to find in original condition and the details of this right-hand-drive car make this one special. Imported to Denmark from Germany, the car has German/ European Union registration papers. A very comprehensive restoration was just completed in September 2018. Car specification: Odometer: 71,041 miles Chassis Number: 184352U033917 Color Code: 104 (Turquoise) Upholstery Code: 344-769 (Black) Engine: B20 with correct Bosch electronic fuel injection Transmission: Correct M41 four-speed with Laycock de Normanville overdrive Drive: Right-hand-drive Brakes: Model correct four-wheel disc brakes 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 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.
