The story of the Volvo P1800 began in 1957, Volvo wanted a sports car to compete in the United States and European markets. Volvo turned to Jensen Motors, whose production lines were under-utilised, and they agreed a contract for 10,000 cars. The Linwood body plant, manufacturer of Pressed Steel, was in turn sub-contracted by Jensen to create the unibody shells, which were then taken by rail to be assembled at Jensen in West Bromwich. In September 1960, the first production P1800 (for the 1961 model year) left Jensen for an eager public and soon after this the elegant Coupe was popularised by The Saint television series.

As time passed, Jensen had problems with quality control, so the contract was ended early after 6,000 cars had been built. In 1963 production was moved to Volvo's Lundby Plant in Gothenburg and continued until 1973. The fuel injected P1800E was introduced in 1970. Powered by a 2 litre 4-cylinder 130bhp engine the P1800E was capable of 118mph with a 0-60mph of 9.3 seconds.

The Volvo P1800E offered here at Autostorico, was first registered in July 1972 and is finished in Californian White with Red interior trim. This beautiful car has been well maintained regardless of cost by its previous owner a Volvo mechanic, who purchased the car back in May 1981. A significant amount of documented work was carried out during his ownership alongside regular servicing. Prior to Autostorico offering the car for sale it had been garaged and not used for 2 years. Haileywood Specialist Cars were tasked with collection prior to a thorough inspection and MOT. Other pre-sales work completed included; Fitting new tyres, brake overhaul and recommissioning.

Supplied with a current V5 registration certificate, MOT Valid until January 2021 and a history file which includes invoices and other related paperwork.

This stunning P1800E offers a great opportunity to own an iconic car which should prove to be an astute investment, due to very low numbers still being on UK roads.
