Swedish soldSwedish-sold 1800E registered in November 1969 and delivered new to architect Gösta Celander in Partille.
The following year, the car was transferred to his firm Arkitektgruppen CFL in Gothenburg, and a few years later it was again in Gösta's name. The car's current history begins in 1984 when it was refurbished. A lot of sheet metal such as front fenders and other things were replaced. A new engine was ordered and it got a little extra push. Painted in the original color steel blue metallic. Then it was put on Pirelli Zero tires and the suspension was lowered a bit. It came to be used extensively during the rest of the eighties on vacations and other trips. In 1998 it was put into the garage to stay there for many years. In 2020, it was taken to a Volvo specialist - Axelsson's restore in Klövdal - to be brought back to life. Everything mechanical was gone through and much was replaced. It was then inspected without complaint and put away again.
Technical condition:During the renovation in 1984, a B20E engine was put in order by knowledgeable people at Volvo. Previous owner worked at Volvo. It got a slightly higher comp, trim comb and other goodies. Engine runs briskly and nicely. Injectors cleaned at inspection in 2020. New brake discs.
Four-speed gearbox with overdrive that works as it should. Equipped with a sound system that was top class in 1984 - very powerful and still sounds great today.
Almost all documentation and receipts for work that was carried out at that time have been preserved.
During the renovation in 2020, among other things, the starter motor, water pump and the entire brake system were replaced with a new master cylinder and everything. Shod with new tires and a new exhaust pipe fitted. It has been pulled a bit too tight and goes against the floor in a few places.
Receipts for all of this are available.
Condition interior:The upholstery has held up well and the leather is in very good condition. Basically everything in the interior is original. Inner ceiling completely and equipped with a speaker arch of eighties design. New carpets installed in 2023.
Exterior condition:In 1984, all the sheet metal was repaired. Among other things, the fenders and front were completely replaced - professionally done.
Overall condition:The 1800E is the ultimate evolution of the P1800 - then with the novelty of fuel injection and much new was shared with the Volvo 140 instead of the Amazon.
