1973 Volvo 1800 ESOther

73 VOLVO 1800 ES with auto transmission and factory air.

The second owner of this car offers this fully refurbished car for sale. Improvements to include new paint, new interior, 1000 miles on a minor engine overhaul which includes piston rings, rod bearings and valve job. The engine has been "backdated" to the higher compression and horse power (135) of the B 20 E engine. Brake pads and brake hoses are new. Front suspension is completely rebuilt. The Michelen tires are new. Many many other refinements and refurbishments have been made to this outstanding automobile.

Now showing approx 120,000 miles the car was bought brand new in Greensboro, NC and has lived here ever since. It was the last 1800 sold in NC. The original owner kept the car until 2014. Since that time it has had the necessary repairs and refurbishment needed to make this one of the best driver 1800s in the country. Usability upgrades include new Weber carb installed, with original complete and fully functional fuel injection system supplied with car, or a brand new set of SU carburetors can be installed. The original Borg Warner automatic transmisson works to perfection and shifts beautifully. The clock works, as do all the other instruments. The car is totally ready for a new owner to use and enjoy. All "wearable" components have been replaced, repaired, updated or rebuilt by the present owner who is now and has been a factory trained professional Volvo mechanic since 1970. Every effort has been made to bring the car to a mechanically "zero time" condition. The car has been treated to all the little secrets and improvements that mechanics have learned over the years. Get in the car and drive it. The car drives beautifully and with Volvos trusted reliability the new owner can count on many years of trouble free service.

The 1800 ES (station wagon version) is the ultimate evolution of Volvos P 1800 sports car. The station wagon version was made for only the last two years of 1800 production. It is the car that introduced electronic fuel injection to the world. This highly refined sports car had wider tires, bigger engine, more horse power, and more (4 wheel disk) brakes than its main competitor the MGB. Only 8078 were made in the station wagon version.
