1967 Volvo 1800S Sports Coupe - $12,500

Postby caliwagon » Thu Sep 24, 2009 4:41 pm

SOLD

'67 Volvo 1800S (aka P1800). Original black plate California car. Red with black interior—both done about 10 years ago. Very good condition with countless upgrades and improvements—over 13k spent in the last 3 years alone. Professionally built B20 engine, D-cam, fresh SU carbs, Miata seats, ipd sway bars, Cibie e-codes, entirely new braking system, new rubber throughout, and much more. Car gets attention (and awards) everywhere with its perfect stance and 16” Torq Thrust wheels. I am the third owner and am a Volvo Sports America chapter coordinator. Selling to start a family; needed something with more space. This car is set up to be driven and enjoyed—hop in today and drive it anywhere!

Asking $12,500. Contact me at johnmelcon [at] gmail [dot] com for more info, or to set up a drive.

Wow, I never thought I would see this ad! I understand your reasons for selling, but still I'm sorry to see you let such a great car go. I hope it stays in the area. Maybe you can even get it back some day!

Good luck with the sale. Someone is going to get a great car, that's for sure.

Thanks Steve. I wasn't really expecting it either, but the timing is right for us. It's going to be really hard to part with this car :(

Sad to hear it, John. I hope it isn't too many years before you can get another vintage car. Good luck.

UPDATE: I hope to have detailed interior and engine bay pictures by Thursday morning of this week, for those who are asking (many). For now, here's a photo of the Miata seats. You can see that the upholstery is a close match to the rest of the interior. Note that the steering wheel shown is no longer the one on the car. It has a mahogany wheel and, included, the original wheel (with normal cracking of the plastic). The original low-back bucket seats are also included (reupholstered in vinyl whenever the interior was redone 10 or so years ago), though the the driver's seat does have one split seam (2-3 inches, iirc).

I may have been skeptical of the seats before, but they really do match nicely. :thumbs:

Hi John,

I sent this message through hotmail but I was finally able to register so here it is again. I needed to use a different email address. Thanks for putting the additional photos up. Would it be possible to see the car Saturday AM? Please send contact information.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, Neil

really rare to see a Swedish classic to be as good as this one! Hopefully there are more volvo enthusiasts that could bring this cars to its former glory.
