1972 Volvo P1800 ES

I’ve owned my 1800 for 26+ years. Was my very reliable and much babied daily driver for 7 years. Ran and drove perfectly when garaged in 1995 for restoration. Everything functioned as it should. Never got around to restoring it (new car, new job, etc.) Garaged since1995, just lost garage and do not want to pay higher price for new storage that it was just transported to. Motor turns, have not tried starting it. Car was always serviced by revered Volvo Master Mechanic - (Larry Costa, Long Valley Garage, Long Valley, NJ) specialized in Volvos and owned an 1800. Many new parts were installed as my plan was to get the mechanics done before the body.

Totally complete car other than: missing left side rear view mirror, a few clips to mount grill/inside door handle. Also missing radio but can supply one from the 80's if you'd like.

4 speed with OD, factory AC, rare factory roof rack (I’ve recently been offered $750 for the roof rack alone), grill is pretty much perfect.

Please note: theodometer reads 39,073. The speedometer had beenchanged when I first bought the car because it was notfunctioning. Thebelieveaccurate mileage is about 130,000.


Rust in usual 1800 places-please see photos. Rockers, front signal lights, cross member, some on driver’s side floor, jack point, spots on lower back panels, etc. Can’t confirm everything as I don’t have a lift and it's in a tight storage unit. Rust on hood seems to be surface rust. Car was originally undercoated.

Body straight except on driver side front fender (see photo) and slight pushed in area (approx. 3”) above grill which need to be pulled out to firmly attach grill. Grill which is in great condition was just placed on car for photo (upside down) Front signal light lenses are new.

Chrome seems to polish nicely (see photo of front bumper).

Also includes:

Brand new rocker panels for both sides (from Bob Stein Volvo) (please see photo)

Brand new trim piece still in plastic wrap for driver’s side front fender to replace missing one.(please see photo)A few otherextraassorted parts.


Interior OK for daily driver. (please see photos) Front seat, especially drivers bottom needs some work. Back seats very good except for small cut on one seat. Headliner OK but coming loose in onesmall area. Dashboard has a few cracks. Again overall OK for daily driver.

The right front wheel did not roll when it was transported to new storage. Perhaps needs lubrication, etc.

Tires hold air but 20+ years old and should be replaced.

Clean NJ title in hand.

Have original Volvo keys and jack.

Thank you.
