More Details & Pictures

Selling my 1968 Volvo P1800S. Incredibly solid car with a ton of character and style. I have owned the car for about 7 years. I believe I am the 3rd owner, and I know that the two previous owners were in southern California (I have the original blue plates that came with the car). Car is just about to hit 99,000 miles. It is a 4 speed with an electronic overdrive.

Car is mechanically in great shape. It has never left me stranded and gets more looks than you know what to do with. Paint is not original, but is the original color which I believe is called “Pistachio Green” and shows quite well. Body has a couple small dents, the largest being at the passenger side tail light (see pic). Some small rust issues on the passenger side rocker and behind the driver side rear wheel. The interior is decent for a 48 year old car. The dash has cracks and the seats have some tears in the leather. The oil temp gauge, fuel gauge and clock are there but not working. All other gauges are working. Original radio is there. All parts are there, and I have some extra parts as well that will go with the car. I do have the front bumper, but it needs to be re-chromed. Again, all the original parts (rubber, mounting hardware) is there.

I have all the receipts of the work I have done in my 7 years of ownership, plus a few that were given to my by previous owner. Plenty of things done, including rebuilt SU carbs and rebuilt brakes (brakes done within the year).

I have also done some slight mods to the car including:

– Original wheels widened to 7 inch and painted silver, mounted on BF Goodrich tires (205/60/R15)
– New Bilstein shocks along with sport springs from IPD lowering the car about 1 inch (I have the original shocks)
– Sport exhaust
– Electronic ignition
– Performance spark plug wires (from IPD)

Included is the original owners manual

I do have some extra parts that will go with sale. These cars, as you probably know, are pretty bullet proof and their value is only going up. Great time to get into one of these as long as you liked being looked at. . .a lot. I love this thing and hate to see it go, only doing so due to space.

The car currently has a clean CA title good through November of 2017.

Asking $15,000.

Thanks for looking.
