15k: Seller Submission: 1966 Volvo 1800S with GM V6 Swap

Last week when we featured the oddly cheap 1800ES estate sale special, we promised to not post another Volvo 1800…that week.  Thankfully, it is now a new week and the Volvembargo has been lifted!  Find this 1966 Volvo 1800S with GM V6 for sale in Mission Hills, CA currently bidding on ebay with a $2,550 bid and a $15,500 buy-it-now.  Seller submission from Oprah85 on ebay.

This Volvo left the factory with a simple four-banger under the hood and the basic 60s sports car honesty that makes them so loveable.  That honesty has been taken away and it is now a monster…but a glorious tribute to hot rodder ingenuity. 

Pop the hood and the entire engine bay is filled with a 4.3 liter Vortec V6 from a 2007 Silverado that is rated at 280 horsepower and 250 ft-lbs of torque.  The fuel injection and modern technology should make for an excellent turn key cruiser/commuter/hoon-mobile.

The seller includes a nice walk around video that shows the car running.  These sort of walk around videos add a lot to the still pictures in an ad and I can’t for the world imagine why ebay prevents its sellers from including links to videos. 

See another Volvo 1800 with a plus sized engine?  Got your own submission?  The first one is free….and the next one…and so on.  tips@dailyturismo.com
