For Sale: 1971 Volvo 1800E (P1800) - $16,700


If you're reading this, the car is still for sale. Vehicle has 150,542 miles with about 2,000 miles on the rebuilt engine and transmission. This is an original California car. I brought it over to Austin, TX when I relocated. I’ve owned the car for 8 years and have been restoring it since then. The transmission is a manual 4-speed with an electronic overdrive. This car turns heads, runs great, and has been garage stored. The Interior has been restored to near original condition. I have records/receipts from 1992 - present. All the work listed below are detailed in this blog with the exception of the most recent work in Jan 2017 (new Electronic Control Unit (ECU), cleaned fuel system, replaced rubber fuel lines, new spark plugs, engine compression checked, wiring harness checked, new fuel injection pressure sensor).

Vehicle is located in Austin, Texas. Out of state buyers welcomed. Leave a voice/text message at (512) 774-4616 or email mkjtang@hotmail (dot com).
