1965 Volvo P1800Review
Jan writes:

Volvo 1800s — 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 find a low mileage car, early cars do have the looks. P1800 lost most of the looks in 1967 but performance got better until production ended with 1800E in 1973.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Nice looks, easy to modify, reliable driver

Cons: Heavy, a two-seater

If You Want A Well-built Classic Car, If You're Mechanically Inclined, This Is A Great Car. By Cori

My 1971 Volvo 1800E had been sadly abused before I rescued it. It had Volvo's unfortunate mechanical fuel-injection, which was so universally loved that the only other owner I knew who had one had ri... Read More
