Technologically advanced, eaturing bosch d-jetronic fuel injection, wheel disc brakes and unique styling, he car soon realized a cult following that has stayed with it through today. Styling influences from this very car are easily seen on the back of the new volvo c30 series cars, ith it’s signature large rear backlight area.
Most collector cars are impractical to utilize as daily drivers, owever, he volvo P1800 is just the opposite. Many of these cars have several hundred thousand miles on them, s their owners found them reliable, conomical, porty, nique, ractical and most of all fun to drive.
This example shows very, ery low mileage on the odometer, t just 68304 miles. This matches the oral history conveyed by the owner of some 33 years. This was a coveted piece of art kept dry and safe by a long time Volvo club of America member. New floor pans were added in 2006.
