Honey. I was mowin the lawn an’ I found a Valvo. A whut? I found a Valvo -P18-hunner, two of ’em. You found a whut? I was riding the new Deere rideon thru a big patch of overgrown scrubs and I found a Valvo 18-hunner with trees grown right up thru the bumpers an then I found a P18-hunner trapped in the barb war. — come outside and look. Hang on, I’ve got curlers in my hair, oh wow. Those are rusty. I know. Can we keep ’em? Are you kidding me? You’ve got a dump truck, a minivan, a few tractors — you don’t need a Volvo, much less two of ’em. Sell it on thefacebook. Aww, shucks, one of ’em got the pointed up front bumper of a 63, but I’ll put ’em for sale. Find a 1963 Volvo P180 and 1965 Volvo 1800S offered for best offer in Nicholasville, KY via therustbook restingplace. Tip from yv1lw.
If you get a feeling that you’ve seen this car, it is because you probably have. We last featured it in 2018 when the seller was trying to milk $40k from this thing…and it was featured on Oddimotive in 2015 when the seller was asking $45k. There is little doubt that the seller put something like $45k into the process of grafting a steel Volvo 1800 body on top of a C4 Corvette chassis and the price has finally gotten more reasonable…but you’ve got to wonder if it doesn’t have another 2 years of reality before a buyer is found. Find this 1992 Chevrolet Corvette Volvo 1800 offered for $25,500 in Portage, IN via craigslist. Tip from Kester.
The first time we featured a white Volvo 1800ES, it was way back in 2012 with a feature written by CFlo that was designated as the first Thorsday. A funny thing happened to the car since it was featured here — it was purchased by a DT reader, had its interior swapped to red, received […]
The Volvo P1800/1800S/1800E/1800ES is a regular offender on these pages — why, you ask? Simply put, it offers a combination of good looks, acceptable performance, and reliability for a low entry price. It isn’t the only option in town for a budget classic, but it makes a bunch of sense when you compare to some […]
Even with some recent price appreciation, Volvo’s P1800/1800S/1800E family of cars continues to be one of the better deals for a classic coupe. The combination of Pelle Petterson’s fluid design, Volvo’s sturdy reliability, and a not-too-big/not-too-small production numbers means you can drive one without being commonplace like a Type 1 Beetle, but have parts/knowledge support […]
The Volvo P1800/1800S/1800E is a cool looking sports coupe built for worldwide consumption in decent numbers (39k from 1963 to 1972.) The decent numbers part is important, because as a classic it lives in a land between massively overproduced cars you’ll see everyday (Mustang or Beetle for instance) and massively under produced cars that demand […]
It is Thorsday, DT celebration of Scandinavian cars that makes a bigger splash than a torpedoed Russian submarine. Today we’ve got a car that you are going to need to channel your inner Edd China and see past the cobwebs…but, like a nickle beer at a strip club, the price generates considerable interest. Find this […]
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 […]
It’s Friday, so that means its time to un-tuck your shirt, roll down the windows and enjoy another episode of DT’s Coffee Brake where the coffee is cold and the brakes are piping hot! The Volvo 1800 is a regular on these pages, but it won’t be forever because the market seems to be driving […]
Update, April 22, 2014: The Duckling has been sold! Thanks for everyone for the comments and compliments. We will post more updates (with the new owner’s permission) in the near future. From April 19, 2014: Believe it or not, there is a downside to moonlighting as an editor for Daily Turismo and having a stable of esoteric, […]
