1972 Volvo P1800e Coupe
$6500. Cash only.
During the last two years of production, Volvo fit its classic P1800 (A.K.A. “Swedish Iron”)
with electronic fuel-injection and 4-wheel disc brakes, and renamed the model the Volvo 1800e.
This vehicle is mechanically sound. It is an excellent driver, and a wonderful long-distance road car.
(My wife and I drove it across the USA on three separate occasions, and we still love each other!)
All floors and panels are rock solid, making this car an excellent candidate for restoration.
I replaced all brake calipers in 2021. New brake pads in 2022. Intake/exhaust manifold gasket replaced in 2022.
This 1800e has an automatic transmission. Its an easy update to the 4 – speed w/ overdrive, using a kit sold by Don Thibault at p1800.com in Sandwich, MA. Don stocks almost every part for the Volvo p1800 and 1800e, as well as service from, basic repairs to expert, top-to-bottom restorations.
This car requires body work, including rocker panels both sides, and trailing bottom edge for front wheel wheels (p1800.com sells shorty panels for this), and a new paint job.
Interior is equipped with heated seats that feature “air scarf” from a 2005 Mercedes SLK. These seats sit lower, to accommodate my height, and my back problems as the offer numerous adjustments / positions.
