1961 Volvo P1800 Review
Great Piece Of History — It was a tank, handled rough but thats why it was fun. got the chance to drive one whos' owner was a friend of my dads. the car was going to be a race car but it still had the interior in it. Very fun to drive and very nostalgic.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: A great classic
Cons: it's not every one's cup of tea

When new a not so quick car with good looks. Acceleration could have been a lot better but was easy to improve. Bodies poorly assembled by Jensen 1961-1963 should be avoided at any cost. Unless you fi... Read More
