1972 Volvo 1800
This very nice Volvo 1800E Coupe was the last year production. This is a Virginia car that is purchased from a Virginia car collector. It appears that the collector purchased the car from the second owner and placed the car in a storage facility for over 22 years (proof of second ownership is available). After purchasing the car, our restoration shop went through the car mechanically starting with rebuilding the fuel system (new pump, new lines, new fuel tank, new brakes and exhaust system, new batteries, changed all fluids, new 4 tires, new strap axle, new shift boot, new fan clutch, new steel crank gear, new tail lamp lens red amber, new upper and lower ball joints [all parts were purchased by IPD & all receipts are available] ), and new interior rug installed from front to back.) This beautiful 1800E has all of the original body panels, floor pans, jacking struts etc and was repainted in its original and very rare yellow (code 107, available only on the 1972 model year. The only area of rust repair that was necessary was the battery box area, which was professionally cut out and replaced. This is a very nice, very solid original car with all of its original 1972 options: fold down rear seats, steel wheels with red V center caps, full highback seats, overdrive, etc. Everything except the clock function as it should, original AM radio, great heating, and so on. The only negatives we see is a small crack in the lower dash pad and a very small ding in the grille surround. There was a lot of time and money spent on this car & its a pleasure to drive. the mileage is correct and original 139,996. This 1800 will make an excellent investment with only 1,865 coupes being built in 1972, this one being 784th from being the last coupe being ever built. any questions feel free to contact Paul at 718-926-2447. Pre-purchase inspections are always welcome. Thanks for your consideration and happy bidding!!
