Hi there,

I'm interested. I sent a PM but I'm not sure if it went through. I am available on daveoleary111@gmail.com if you wouldn't mind.

Regards

Did you see how fast that white one in Scotland sold recently? It was a very tidy early one priced too low at about £5,000. It sold immediately.

There was a full restoration project for sale down here in Devon at £1,500. I mean, full restoration project. It was for sale for about a week.

As well, Nigel Case in London - he runs Classic Car Club and adores Volvos - he had a very nice example in green, probably similar condition to this one. That one caused some comments on this here forum when it was up for sale at £11,000, but guess what?! It sold for very near that figure!

I have to say it: name me another practical classic that can offer what this car has? Amazon estate far more valuable nowadays. Citroen Safari the same as is a Peugeot 504. Then you have less attractive newer stuff like Granada, Mercedes 123 and so on.

I'd be getting some very well done photos and a carefully worded advert with a price tag of £10,000

You could be right. My gut feeling is that it has a selling price of around £7000, although these cars will rise as time passes by, i'm sure. So whatever the price, it shouldn't lose over time. I will be in a more serious position after the Bruntingthorpe event

If I donít manage to get the car ready for the event, I will be in my red Volvo 850 Diesel

It is quite a rare beast as well!

There are extra seats in the boot with arm rests, but they are far from easy to assemble and not worth the bother really.
I fitted the kenlowe fan, overdrive and oil cooler as I towed my caravan and boat with it, I will also be at volvo 600 with my P1800

Hi there. Yes I have spoke to you before, around 8 or 9 years ago I believe. I think I have a copy of that photo somewhere, and one or two others

I have managed to keep it dry stored all these years, which has helped keep it in the condition it is in now.

I think you aught to keep the p1800. I sold my p1800 in 2011 for £7500. It will be worth around £15000 now. If you really are interested in the old girl I would consider my lowest price for you!

Hopefully I will get it to this Volvo meet at the end of the month! Nice to hear from you again.
