Volvo P1800 S


For Sale: Volvo P1800 S 1965

This car has spent most of its life in the very north part of Sweden and for this reason it has never been very rusty. The car was repainted 1995 and at this time the rocker panels where replaced and new cross members where fitted. The car was not used much after this work was done and it still looks very nice.

Now I have fitted a new interior including carpet, leather seats, the seat bottom bungy cord. New door sides, handle, trunk carpet and side panels in the trunk. New door rubbers and new leather upholstery on the seats. The car had a full service with the brakepads and brake hoses replaced, new oil and filter, points, condesor and spark plugs.

Engine feels very strong and has a great sound. The gearbox was fitted new about 6000km ago. The designer of the Volvo P1800 Pelle Pettersson, has put his signature underneath the trunk lid.

The wheels where newly restored and new tyres fitted. In other words. This is a really great Volvo P1800S that is ready to drive anywhere.

Alfa Romeo Montreal

Sold: Alfa Romeo Montreal

The Alfa Romeo Montreal is a wonderful GT car. With less than 4000 cars produced, it is a rare sight today!

The great sounding V8 produces 200hp giving this 1,300kg car a nice performance. The chassis number AR 1428714 manufactured on the 31st October 1973 and sold on the 16th April 1975 to Alfa Romeo Germany, Frankfurt. The car was immediately sold to Sweden since we did not have any importer here for this model. The history of owners is complete with copies of old registration documents. The car was in the same family for the last 30 years.

The car was driven a little here the first couple of years by the first owner, but was later passed on to a man living far north in Sweden that had the car only merely for looking at on sunny days. It was kept in dry storage for many years and passed down in generations until I bought it.

I have since put new tyres, replaced the springs and swaybars, and all fluids including all filters (3 fuel and 1 oil). All gauges, buttons together with windows now work properly in the car. It was painted in the early 80s therefore the paint is not perfect. However, the car is rust free and all of the very delicate stainless steel trim is absolutely perfect all around. And it is in original colour, Arancia metallizato. The interior is 100% original with the first carpet and seat upholstery all in very good condition. The eye lids over the headlights are operated with vacuum and these work fine. The 5 speed ZF gearbox feels very good when warmed up. The mufflers on the exhaust system were replaced and the car sounds amazing. The center caps on the wheels have been fitted after these pictures were taken and also the correct side signal lights have been fitted. This is the car to drive and enjoy.
