Bought new in 1971 in Seattle WA, this Volvo 1800 has been meticulously cared for with all it's original mechanical paper work well sorted and traced. The aftermarket upgrades made to this car have made it an incredible driver (especially in the corners) yet it still maintains the classic 1800 look. While not quite the perfect show car, this car gets lots of attention and is guaranteed to turn heads. The original B20 engine and 4 Speed plus working overdrive make this true classic a joy to drive.
This car has been treated pretty well over the years, it runs smooth with the overdrive shifting smoothly in and out. The car has lot's of upgrades, see in the photos below. It's very quiet on the road, the trunk area has been treated with sound proofing mats. A few of the upgrades are IPD Front and Rear Sway bars, IPD Sport Exhaust and IPD "Rare" Volvo valve cover along with Sport coils with Bilstien shocks. "Super Light" Australian made performance wheels with Formoza tires 205/60/15. A nice Kenwood ipod/CD Detachable Face Stereo with 500 Watt Amp under rear seat. Power Disc brakes (all 4) along with reclining bucket seats.
The cars wears paint color code 42 California white. It was repainted about 9 years ago. The body is very straight, never been in any form of accident or fender bender. No dents! The right rocker panel has had fiberglass to fill a few small spots of rust and both sides were resprayed to prevent future corrosion, replacement is needed someday but not immediate depending on the climate you live in. The right rear quarter panel does has a rust area in the rocker panel, it's hidden behind the rubber mud flap, should be fixed someday. Overall presentation o is good, the clear coat shines well over whole car, no peeling.
This car looks pretty sharp going down the road but on close inspection the paint does need work in areas, small bubbles in the paint are found in various parts of the hood, doors and back trunk area. Could use new paint in a few years depending on restoration goals. No major rust at all in those areas. This 1800 is super solid and the undercarriage is exceptional, pics of that are shown further down the page. Tires are Formoza radials in great shape with lots of tread.
The glass is perfect in this car, not a chip or a crack. The Chrome is pretty near perfect as well - no dents, dings or bends on any of the chrome. The bumpers could use a buffing but look pretty good as is. All turn signals/ lights / and electrical works except for the clock and the rear defroster on the window is disconnected. The wipers move strong and shooting windshield fluid is no problem!
The interior of the vehicle is incredible shape. The passenger seat has a small 1" crack on the bottom and the drivers seat has a small loose seam near the head rest. Both door panels have been rebuilt with matching elbow patches to reduce wear in the future. Both front seats recline and the back seat folds down in case you need room for your golf clubs. The fog lights have not been hooked up yet. The interior dome light works when the driver door is open. The horn has been relocated to a push button under the dash.
The engine is clean - runs very strong and hits 80 mph fairly speedy with the help of overdrive of course. It also comes with the stock fuel injection system that was taken off for easier tuning. Has sport exhaust heads. The mileage is unknown, looks to be rolled over. The engine does NOT leak any oil. The trunk area comes with the spare tire, reflectors and the stock jack. Very clean all around.
The undercarriage is in great shape - no holes or fillers in the floor boards.
