Polestar Blue: 1969 Volvo 1800

The Volvo 1800 is one of those underappreciated classics that can still be found for a song/dance from time to time.  Typically examples for less than $5k will include a lot of rust and rat’s nests – this one is no exception, but it does run/drive at a roller price.   Find this 1969 Volvo 1800 offered for $6,500 near Seattle, WA via craigslist.Tip from Zach Z.

From the seller:

1969 1800 in good condition. Fresh paint job looks great! 

The engine has been replaced with a larger fuel injected engine from an 80s Volvo, and runs excellent. I’m a professional Volvo mechanic, and this is a solid engine swap. The motor is a B23 from my 1983 240, using the electronic fuel injection system from that same donor car.

Transmission is 4 speed plus overdrive, so it’s fine on the freeway. Disc brake swap, performance springs and shocks, performance camshaft, much more.

I’m looking for a buyer at $6500 firm. I’m located in Brier, right beside Lynnwood. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks very much!
