Classic Car Overview

A good Volvo is for the lover of different kind of distinction, and this 1973 Volvo P1800ES proves it best. With the individual style, factory-correct standout color, and an overall unique personality, this is a real attention-getter that youll discover is also a great driving classic. Volvo people know the significance of owning a 1973 car. This was the was the final year of the P1800 line, and production only ran for about half the year. That makes this a rare treat even before you dive into the details. The shooting brake design of the ES model is instantly distinctive. The rare coupe/wagon idea means sharing a profile with everything from classic custom Aston Martins to the modern Ferrari FF and GTC4Lusso. And this one does deserve to stand with the exotics. Its a quality example with well-done sheetmetal that shows off the intricate design lines. This includes the Italian-inspired front end, the curve of the door line, and the bright trim that showcases the hint of tailfin. And the large rear glass hatch would become a hallmark that would be used from more Volvo designs in the future. Its all wrapped in its correct light blue that is a true standout that just seems to capture the bright and cheerful attitude this Swedish classic radiates. The black interior has a tasteful appearance. The high-back front bucket seats are an updated set with plenty of comfort. And Volvo was the first to offer the three-point seatbelt. When you slip behind the three-spoke steering wheel, you instantly understand why there are people who are fanatical about their Volvos. It mixes safe and sturdy construction with European elegance and performance. You see it in the complete set of Smiths gauges and feel it in the crisp action of the gearstick. But more than just a great driver, you have practical features that range from an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette stereo to the generous cargo capacity built into the design of the ES. Under the hood is the correct-style 2.0-liter motor. It now runs with a dual-barrel carburetor, which will be a benefit to many of you who like easy garage tune-ups. But thats only for your prerogative, because the car already fires-up and runs with the kind of strength that reaffirms the right care over the years. The P1800 series is a great grand touring machine. The engine is not built for all-out speed, and so the suspension is tuned to ride better than most vintage sports cars you know. The four-speed manual transmission shifts smooth as it gives you frim control over the motor. Plus, the four-wheel disc brakes and modern Toyo tires inspire the kind of confident driving that make these fantastic fun. Unique, rare, and quite striking - this P1800ES is cool classic that doesnt come around very often. So dont let this shining example slip away. Call today!!!
