Technical specifications, photos and description:
1971 Volvo 1800 ES sports. one owner from new until 2 months ago. the car has been in storage since the mid 80's. genuine 23. 00 mls from new. the original owner worked offshore and only used the Volvo occasionally on his visits home. in the mid 80's he decided to freshen up the car by having it re-painted and all the chrome work re-chromed. he prepared the front end and sent away the chrome work for re-finishing. he never got any further than that. the car had been dry stored ever since but regularly started.
All the parts appear to be there. all the chrome is still wrapped up as it was returned from re-chroming in 1987. there are also the headlights and all the chrome body trim mouldings and various new rubber seals. the underneath is rock solid. no welding needed anywhere
Upon the death of the owner earlier this year ownership passed to his grandson. the v5 shows the grandson becoming the cars second keeper in may 2013. prior to that it was one owner from new.
The engine starts readily and it drives around the yard fine. the bodywork is very good and only needs minor final preparation then a good quality re-paint. all the chrome work is present freshly re-finished and ready to be re-fitted once it is painted. a very very easy project. this will make a fantastic collectors car once finished with such low mileage and owner history.
These sell for up to £15k and like all classic cars are worth more every year that passes. will make a fantastic investment and can be enjoyed at the same time. I have had a quote to finish the paintwork to a high standard of only £1300. the reserve is set very low. this will be a bargain for someone. if it does not sell it will be sent to the paint shop by me next week.
I can deliver the car anywhere in the uk at extra cost. the buyer must pay £250 deposit at the end of the auction. then the balance within 7 days please.
Any questions please give me a call on 07938-704208
