The Volvo 1800ES is the limited edition shooting brake version of the
Volvo 1800 that was sold in the 1972 and 1973 models years as a
way to extend the life of the long-in-the-tooth 1800 coupe (first offered in 1962 as the P1800). The goofy looks can be polarizing
– the Germans call this model Schneewittchensarg, which translates literally to “Snow White’s coffin.” Find this 1972 Volvo 1800ES offered for $8,500 in Santa Rosa, CA via craigslist.
The 1800ES continues to be a favorite for its combination
of cheap and being produced in limited quantities. How many other vintage European built sports machines with production of less than 10,000 (8,077 were built for worldwide use) can be picked up for this cheap?
The seller only includes a few blurry pictures of the inside and nothing underhood – but power comes from a B20 pushrod 4-cylinder rated at 112 hp (and
115 lb-ft of torque) . The B20 is fed via a Bosch D-Jet electronic
fuel injection system and mated to a 4 speed manual gearbox with electronic overdrive.
