A Challenger Appears: 1968 Volvo 1800S

I had picked out a Volvo 1800S that was being sold by one of those internet car flipper sites on eBay and it was bidding for a decent amount with a day to go — this one here— but then I found a different 1800S being offered by an actual owner. Find this 1968 Volvo 1800S here on eBay bidding for $9,500 in Belmar, NJ with 1 day to go.

This submarine colored 1800S is offered with 53,000 miles on the odometer and is sold by the second owner since it left the factory in 68.  Actually, it might be an earlier car because the hockey stick chrome molding were replaced with straight pieces in 1966.  That is a mystery for the next owner to decipher.

Under the hood is what appears to be a B18 inline-4 that should be good for something in the 100 horsepower range, but they are known for producing plenty of torque and lasting for years with basic monkey-wrench maintenance.

The interior looks decent for the current asking price, and the only real question is — how bad is the rust?
