1972 Volvo P1800 1800 1800ES P1800ES

This is a really nice solid daily driver. Starts very easy with no problems. Idles at just over 1000rpm's. This is the first fuel injected 1800 I've had that actually runs just like it should. Accelerates better than any stock 1800 I've owned. Really gets moving and runs straight and smooth down even my dirt road at 70. Transmission works great in all gears. Overdrive works great. Car has dealer installed AC. It's all hooked up and works but does not blow cold air. Not sure what it needs to be fixed. No issues with exhaust system. All the exterior lights work. All interior switches work. Blower fan motor works. Wiper motor works. Have not tested cig lighter though. Radio is original and fully functional. Gauges all appear to be working correctly. I have not checked the clock to see if it's working. Interior is in really good condition. Carpets have some staining in the rear cargo area. Dash needs recovered. Car has new replacement gas tank. Tires are near brand new. Floors of the car are very solid with no holes that I could find. Trunk floor is in great condition. Frame rails and Jack points are very good. Volvo comes with the original Goodyear spare tire never used (made in Sweden). Also has original scissor jack, Jack crank rod, and complete tool kit and pouch. Car has been repainted once many years ago. The paint is just ok now but it really needs redone again. The paint has been touched up in many areas that small rust bubbles have started to form. Chrome bumpers have some rust spots. Rear passengers side bumper has dent. Rear passengers side taillight lens is broken along with a crack in the chrome housing unit. Grille surround in great shape. All glass is very good. Stainless trim is very good. This is a really nice little car that just needs a new paint job.
International/foreign buyers are very welcome to bid on my car. I've shipped many cars overseas.
This is a really good Daily driver car. You could probably just get in this car and drive it home, but I haven't driven it myself for more than 20 miles so it might be best to get it home and drive it local and work up to longer trips. I can help load or I can get you in contact with my transport broker who is very good and fair on price. I can also deliver the car for a fee. Please call if you have questions. My number is 586.321.6572. I will also upload very soon two YouTube videos. One shows the car running up and down my road. The other is a slideshow of well over 100 pictures showing the car in much more detail. I strongly recommend watching these two videos and consider them part of the description. You can search YouTube for those videos under "Nick Tarlton Blue 1972 Volvo 1800ES Country Drive" & "Nick Tarlton Blue 1972 Volvo 1800ES". In the country drive video you can hear the fan clutch that needs to be replaced. My mechanic will be doing that replacement this week.
Feel free to ask questions. Please only bid if you have the money and permission. I prefer payment cash in person but can also do PayPal, money orders, cashiers check, and bank wire transfers. The car is available most days and time to look over. I'm also open to having a hired agent come and look at the car and drive it. The car is not insured or plated so test drives will be short and only on my dirt road. Thanks and have fun bidding......a lot.
