1972 Volvo 1800 ES, original unrestored car For Sale

1972 Volvo 1800 ES, original unrestored car

This car is a true barn find just pulled from storage. The paint is original as is the interior. Front headlights and front grille are included in the sale. The car has been sitting for many years and will need restoration. The car was running when parked and the engine turns freely by hand. No serious attempts have been made to start the car, but the Volvo B20 engine is known to be bullet proof and very reliable, so it should be relative easy to get it back to life.

These cars are getting increasingly difficult to find in this original unrestored condition and the details of this car, including the rare roof rack, make this one special and well worth a restoration.

Car specification:
Odometer: 1867 miles
Chassis Number: 1836350002434
Engine: B20 with correct Bosch electronic fuel injection
Transmission: Correct M41 four-speed with overdrive
Drive: Left-hand drive
Brakes: Model correct four-wheel disc brakes
Upholstery: Black (factory color code 448-821)
Paint: Original light blue metallic (factory color code 111 only offered 1972/73

History of the Volvo 1800 ES:
Volvo introduced its final P1800 variant, the 1800ES, in 1972 as a two-door station wagon with a frameless, all-glass tailgate. The final design was chosen after two prototypes had been built by Sergio Coggiola and Pietro Frua. Both Italian prototypes were considered too futuristic, and instead in-house designer Jan Wilsgaard's proposal was accepted. The ES engine was downgraded to 125 hp (92 kW) by reducing the compression ratio with a thicker head gasket (engine variant B20F); although maximum power was slightly down the engine was less "peaky" and the car's on-the-road performance was improved.

The ES's rear backrest folded down to create a long flat loading area. As an alternative to the usual four-speed plus overdrive manual transmission, a Borg-Warner three-speed automatic was available in the 1800 ES. With stricter American safety and emissions standards looming for 1974, Volvo did not see fit to spend the considerable amount that would be necessary to redesign the small-volume 1800 ES. Only 8,077 examples of the ES were built in its two model years.
