We bought this great es from a private collection after a long search earlier this year with the intention of my wife using it as an around town classic. However her ability to work from home is ending and her employer now requires that she commutes 4 hours a day to a new office therefore she needed to buy a modern commute car :(
This 1973 Volvo 1800ES is finished in red over a black vinyl interior and powered by a fuel-injected 2.0L inline-four backed by a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Best described as a very decent driver, her exterior is not perfect although as you can see she shows very well. Constantly the subject of admiration and conversation she really is a fun classic to drive.
The interior is in great shape with no rips or tears in the upholstery or the carpet. The glass is free of chips or crack and the chrome polishes up very well. Last month I fitted new ss trim strips on both sides of the car at a cost of $600 from iroll motors. She starts, drives, shifts and stops very well.
She has an older repaint in original color that has the usual imperfections.There is some slight bubbling along bottom fender (as shown in photos). The dash pad is cracked but covers are available for less than $200. Original steering wheel comes with the car.
Volvo 240 Turbo 5-spoke wheels are fitted with older Continental tires.
She is available for viewing and test drives during the auction. I will assist in any way I can with shippers both domestic and international.
