The car has always been a West Coast automobile and is located in Fairfax. California.   It has been in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1981 and resided in the Napa California area previous to that.     This is a collector's dream! One of the nicest examples of this highly desired and sought after model found on the market today!  Always gets compliments by passers by.  

After 35 years of faithful service. nbsp; I am selling this classic 1973 Volvo 1800ES. nbsp; a car that has always been well maintained and has had the benefit of timely. full servicing.     The time has come for me to pass my great little car on to someone who will be as taken by it as I have always been.   I am looking for a good home for my faithful friend. It's in amazing shape for a 43 year old car. not a trailer queen but pretty close. finished in orange with almost new. original replacement interior: black leather/vinyl seats. panels and dash with brown carpeting interior.   Every day that I take my P1800ES on the road. at least two people will stop. stare and inquire about the vehicle and ask if they can take pictures. The most common comment made is that the car makes them "happy". It is one of only 8077 produced for the model years 1972 and 1973. This is a 43 year old automobile that will still serve you well for many years to come.    This P1800ES is a very comfortable. dependable long distance touring car and great fun to drive while getting lots of attention and receiving constant "thumbs up" from passing motorists.   Since my purchase in 1981 I have used this car as my main transportation. both local and long distance. It has been my one and only driving machine and it has always proved to be a faithful. dependable machine. serving me well.   I would not hesitate to drive it cross country. And for the past 20 years. the car has been garaged for 6 months out of every year while I am away on business.   The car had a full bare metal repaint in 1998 though recently there is minor paint bubbling/rust behind front wheels where wheel well is exposed to road grime. low on body panel which will require minor body repair/repainting. Minor cracks in paint on the top of the front fender cowlings will need repaint.
