10k: Comes With A Story: 1970 Volvo 1800E

For the 1970 model year Volvo improved their 1800 sports coupe by adding fuel injection, 4-wheel disc brakes, and the letter E to the end of its name.  The 1800E is arguably the best of the breed for the P1800/1800S/1800E family as it has been given numerous upgrades to solve earlier issues, and this next car comes with an interesting back story.  Find this 1970 Volvo 1800E offered for $10,900 in Playa del Ray, CA via craigslist.

This is normally the part where we’d tell you this interesting back story…but the seller plays coy in the listing.  His words:

Original blue plate California car, not rusted like most of these Volvo’s are.

Car was hidden in the garage for 15 years.

Car is in good running and driving condition.

Original Steel Blue Metallic paint is faded and original interior is still

all intact.

There is also very interested history in the car, please inquire.

More info or pictures, call me. NO TEXTS.

Blue plate is good, not rusted better, and running/driving condition is also good news.  I could live with the original paint being faded, and if this thing really is a nice running/driving example, it could be worth the asking price.
