Lot 18: Volvo 1800ES

Classics Cars, Charterhouse (15 July 2012)

green. The 1800 ES was produced for only two years, with just over 8,000 cars rolling off the production line. Volvo introduced the ES which was a development of the earlier 1800 coupe, to accommodate the lifestyle of their client's growing families who wished to still have the style of the coupe with the practicality of an estate. This particular 1800 ES was purchased by the current owner from a previous Charterhouse auction in 2009, requiring a full restoration after twelve years of barn storage. Since acquiring the Volvo a full restoration has taken place, including full bodywork renovation with new sills and a full bare metal re-spray in green. The engine and fuel injection system have been overhauled. The original brown leather interior has been renovated and is now soft and supple, and has wool carpets with green bound edges. With the three year restoration now completed, the vendor is only selling it to concentrate on his next project. V5C, ***MOT to May 2013 (not April), tax exempt (tax to November 2012)
