Custom 1966 Volvo P1800s
At 50 years old, this car has been built to last another 50. I’m only selling it due to my permanent relocation overseas. Currently registered in California, insured and with a clean title.
A few quick highlights:
Custom engine built by Phil Singer, the top vintage Volvo engine builder: B20 engine 0.040” overbore and head flow ported. Ross Racing pistons and a Volvo “D” camshaft.
All new upholstery by Santiago Gil, one of the best in Los Angeles.
New custom paint and body work, from bare metal.
Custom wheel fitment by Jewel Tire.
Garage stored always.
All machine work done by Vellios Machine Shop – true experts.

Here are some things that could still be done to the car:
Install audio system
Install air conditioning
Install electronic ignition and have carburetors rebuilt. This would net a small improvement in power and idle, but probably isn’t worth the cost.
Get black California plates.
Damp a few minor interior rattles.
This car has been completely disassembled, repaired and rebuilt with the utmost care. The above list does not include the many, many little parts that had to be replaced or repaired along the way. I hope you will appreciate it as much as I have.
