1964 Volvo P1800S

Description

The Volvo P1800 is a two-door, two-passenger, front-engine, rear-drive sports car, manufactured as a Coupe (1961-73) and Shooting-Brake, (1972-73). While the P1800 was more of a stylish touring car rather than a sports car when it came to its speed capabilities, the P1800 first became popular when it was featured as the main car driven by Roger Moore in the hit television series The Saint, which aired from 1962-1969. The P1800 featured styling by Pietro Frua and mechanicals derived from Volvo’s Amazon/122 series.

In 1963 the car’s name was changed to P1800S and the engine was improved with an additional 8bhp. In 1966 the four-cylinder engine was updated to 115bhp. Top speed was 109mph. In 1969 the B18 engine was replaced with the 2-litre B20B variant of the B20 giving 118bhp, though it kept the designation P1800S.

Owned by the vendor for a number of years, this very original example is offered with wonderful patina and is finished in the desirable colour combination of grey over blue with black interior. A modest 31,483 miles has been recorded on its odometer.
