A 1966 Volvo P1800S in Amazon Grey with Cherry Red leather interior. This is a right-hand drive car originally imported from the UK into Sweden by the previous owner who kept it for 20 years. It was kept in a cool dry garage and registers 65,000 kilometres on the clock. The chrome-work is in generally good order save for the bonnet badge and rear number plate light housing which would benefit from replacement. There is no rust showing, though there is a small crack in the paintwork underneath the back window. Underneath, the floor pan is very solid so no ‘patchwork quilt' here! Since arriving in the UK it has had a new fuel pump, choke and throttle cables. The car is currently on DVLA temporary plates and now has its Swedish V5 Form or ‘Yellow Paper' for registering in the UK. The car has also had a pre-MoT check and that document can be inspected.The engine bay is clean and tidy and the car starts and runs reliably. This is the perfect car for immediate daily use or a good starting point for a complete restoration. Sit comfortably in a true Sports Coupe, nice and low, and flick the 5th gear over-drive to feel that surge in power.This car is being sold as part of a new TV motoring series being made by famed Classic Car presenter, Mike Brewer.
