Welcome to another Craigslist Quick Hit… This time it is one of our favorite Volvos, the P1800 ES, and this one is a 1974 edition. This tip comes from Pete Gaines (thanks Man!) and he stated in his email that “This is…tempting.” I couldn’t agree more, but what do you think?
According to the listing:
Red 1974 Volvo ES 1800 Manual 4spd w/overdrive Sport Wagon.
Serious buyers only. Research the Volvo ES 1800 before making an offer.
This is a super rare, super awesome – Volvo ES 1800 Sport Wagon.
Only 8,077 examples of the ES were built in its two model years.
It’s from 1974 so it has some issues as all vintage cars do.
The 1800 is mechanically sound.
Starts every time. Runs great.
Recently driven on 500 mile trip. Never a problem.
2 owners in same family prior to current owner.
Aprox 275K miles (this is the million mile car so that’s just breaking it in)
Clean body and underneath.
Rust around wheel wells and around some trim areas should be remediated.
Speedo not working, odometor works fine so you can get mph from that or easy fix in estimate below.
Trans leaks oil
Recently inspected by European American Motors.
Estimate of $500-800 for trans leak, speedo, fuel lines, seals and bearings on one wheel
Comes with set of 4 racing wheels.
Asking price for this rather rare Volvo is $5,000, or best offer. See the listing here, or if the ad disappears, click here. Tell me what you would do with this proper Shooting Brake if you bought it…
