1972 Volvo P1800ES

Ride Rating


I've owned the car for over 16yrs and enjoy driving it during the summer. Did 90% of the work on the car myself and help other 1800 owners who can't find anyone to work on their cars. My car has a modified B20 4 cylinder fuel injected engine. 4 speed manual transmission with electric overdrive. The car has been lowered, sway bars front and back, poly bushings and Bilstein shocks. Always tinkering with the car and rack and pinion steering along with A/C are the projects for this year.

Awesome. I've always wanted an ES in yellow - there's something just right about that color...

Just beautiful. I've never even seen a "hatchback" model like that one. Definitely favorite Volvo ever.

I usually don't like oversized wheels on an ES, but these look good. What size are they? They look like Voxx wheels IPD used to sell. I hope my own ES can look as good some day.

Putting one of those together myself. Going to be a bit of a hot-rod with a 302 and Miata suspension front and rear. The unique style has always caught my eye.
