My family owned this car from about 82 to 90. We renovated it, and changed the colour from yellow to blue. I used it as my everyday car for 2 years. Good to see it's still around, but I see from the mots that it only does a small mileage these days. Needs to be driven more.!!

Volvo P1800

We bought this car in about 1982. It was pretty rusty, although only 12 years old. We replaced all 4 wings, inner rear wheel arches, repaired the front inner wings , rebuilt both sills which were rotten, did a small amount of mechanical work, and changed the colour from mustard yellow to blue. Cars in the 70s did rust very quickly, even Volvos, my father had a 145 which rusted through on the rear wheel arches at only 3 years old! He swapped it for a 144 which also rusted through on the front wings at 4 year old. The cam wore out at 30k miles,which Volvo described as ' fair wear and tear '!! Then the engine seized at 50k miles. Despite this he bought a 244 (he still thought Volvos were reliable!?!) which seemed ok, until he smashed it up 12 years later. I'm happy the P1800 E is still around and looking good, although I notice from the mot history that it failed recently for rust. Not bad for 30 years after our rebuild I suppose. I hope some day to see it again, although I think it is in the south of the country these days, and I don’t get down there nowadays. I even had a thought that I might one day own it again, if it were ever for sale. Let me know if it's for sale! !

Volvo P1800 The car is actually a 1800E.

Added by Tony of Sussex

I can't believe it; I can see 'my' gorgeous 1800E again! I bought this car from a lady in Balham, London who had loved this car and even got married in it. I remember seeing her in my rear view mirror, standing in the middle of the road dabbing away her tears, as I drove it away back to Brighton. I owned the car ( I think ) from 1995 to 2000. I know I bought my son home from hospital in it when he was born in 1998. I reluctantly sold it as I had a very young, very unwell child and we had to convert the garage into a bedroom for him. I wasn't driving it as much, and I couldn't stand the idea of it deteriorating by not being used. I have never polished a car like that Volvo. I sold it to a young banker from Cadogan Square, Knightsbridge. I still have the bill of sale somewhere. Out of all the more exotic cars I've owned since, it's the one I always think about. it had soul. I hope that it is still alive and beautiful.
