Classic Car Overview

1968 Volvo P1800s with Clean Florida title without rust and the body has not been modified. Purchased July 1, 2005

Daily driver until 2018 when I decidedto restore. I disassembled the Volvo and began work. A temporarymedical problem stopped me for many months so I began ordering parts.In my research I was inspired by a company who built engines with astroker crank, oversized pistons and special carburettors tobasically double the horsepower without supercharger or turbocharger.My interest drove me to do months of research to find everything Ineeded. I was not interested in a race car. My goal was to have abeautiful P1800 with an engine that looked original except for thecarburettors and would have the power and reliability for long tripswith hidden air conditioning!! The engine has not been disassembledand is currently out of the car on an engine hoist and stillconnected to the transmission. The new parts still in the boxes areas follows:

> Stroker crank

> Oversized pistons

> Oversized and optimized valves

> Specialized camshaft for street speedand drivability

> Water pump

> Timing gear set

> Roller rockers

> High performance connector rods

> ARP bolts

> Bearings and bushings

> Oil pump

> Hardware kits

> Distributor cap

> Starter motor

> 1-wire alternator

> Radiator

> Radiator overflow tank

> Hoses

> U-joints

> Wipers

> Speedo cable

> Brake master cylinder

> Clutch master cylinder

> Brake overflow tank

> Brake drums – rear

> Brake shoes – rear

> Brake drum springs set - rear

> Brake cylinders - rear

> Disc brake pads – front

> Disc brake rotors - front

> Disc brake calipers – front

> Brake light switch

> Special brake tool

> Intake manifold for carbs

> Four carburettors (Mikuni HSR45mmpolished TM45)

> Cylinder head from 1969 P1800 becauseit accepts larger valves.This cylinder head and new valves weresent to a well-known cylinder head racing specialist to maximize airflow on this little 4-cylinder. The engine is still untouched so theoriginal cylinder head is still on the engine.

There are more new small parts than Ihave listed here but you can make them out in the pictures. The engine stand comes with the car. The original parts are in storage tubs.I cannot finish the restoration and need to get it out of my garagefast because I am moving and will sell it for the first 'safe' cash.
