1971 Volvo P1800E Notch Coupe

This brilliantly styled and functional Sports GT touring car is a wild step from today’s typically boring Volvo’s. In fact if any Volvo ever had a soul of a sports car this was it. In 1970 Volvo did it final itineration of their Sports Coupe, the P1800E, with a new B20E fuel injected engine and updated refinements. These P1800’s were the best of the 1800’s 12-year lifespan and were built in the Volvo facility in Gothenburg Sweden. These well-engineered cars have travelled many miles, with several example eclipsing a million miles. The last generation B20E was a 1986 cc fuel injected workhorse with it 5 bearing mains and cast iron block. And it was also one of the first with proper electronic fuel injection. Mated to the M41 4 speed with electric overdrive, they had plenty of power to scoot down the highway.

This stunning example is the result of a yearlong restoration with full paint and interior. The Dark green (94) paint is the original color and complements the light tan saddle interior. This was a rust free car. The prior owner was a big P1800 aficionado. The car was store properly in his barn with the wheels of the ground and the fuel out of the tank. His storage area was well organized with lots of spare parts for his beloved P1800E Coupe.

The interior was in pretty decent shape, however to match the impressive exterior the seats had to match the rest of the body. The front seats were recovered and re-stuffed to make them just like when they came off the line in Sweden.
