Default Sooo....I maybe snagged a 71 P1800E for 12hundo off my buddy...

Buddy of mine decided to give me his 71 Volvo P1800E for the cost shipping and some work on the 748 he brought out too. Its rough, but solid and shouldn't take much to get it running.

Gonna work to make it a solid driver and sort the various seals and change fluids etc.

Idk if I'll make a thread for the 748 as right now the plan is to just make it a solid runner but my buddy kind of is on the fence about a faired resto or a brat seat and dirty bars so we'll see.

Still sorta slowly working on my other buddy's 749 project...maybe a thread update next week....maybe lol

This will be a very....very........very slow project so just a heads up in advance.

Dude.... no.





For the past 5 years, living here on a 4 way intersection, I've gotten to know my incredibly cool neighbors, and across the intersection diagonally from me, is an old guy named "Rocky", he's a hoot, I love hanging out talking cars and bikes, and (he's got a few old Puch's, a Ducati single with a spare engine, Honda's from the 60's, AND), Rock's got a Volvo P1800!

That car sounds sweet as it gets, it's like a motorcycle engine! Rev's like crazy, sounds incredible, pulls really decent too. It is such a cool car with the original engine. The prices of them are going up, they are a growing market, I would snatch up every part possible and resto-mod that thing with the original engine and transmission. Side draft carbs, tube header, lightened flywheel, new rear diff. with a proper LSD. That little car could be incredibly fun, and retain enough period spec parts to break into a new area of the P1800's themselves.

One of these days, this summer for sure, when Rock's buddy stops in with the tube frame '66 Mustang street car (Trans Am racecar replica sorta thing) I'm gonna toss on the GoPro with the head mount and go for a ride with the guy and get some wild film of a pure race car on public roads (legally). The P1800, when the engine is back into it, is already on that "gotta document this before these guys are gone" sort of cars and people. Do right by that Volvo and it'll be the most fun you've had with 100hp and 4 wheels.

Yeah, right away I was thinking a nice little S2000 engine and tranny would be perfect!

Sweet, unique ride no matter what you do with it. Needs to be cherry, though. Don't want to see it as a beater.

Good luck with everything.

Hah, first thing that popped up with my friends here when I mentioned I was snagged it was an LS swap lol.

As cool as that would be, the B20 in it has already been refreshed prior. Trans might need some work as my buddy I snagged it from saud it was grinding in first a bit but that could be anything. Im gonna drain the tank, and do fuel filter and already picked up oil and filter for the engine and new batt today. Gotta drain the oil from the trans too. Interwebs says to run 30w engine oil in the gearbox and O/D unit apparently.


Looking for door seals and stuff now, found some things. There's a guy selling basically two P1800ES' in parts with new metal and a shit ton of NOS parts but he refuses to part the shit out and wants 15k flr the lot. Im gonna wait for the listing to sit for a few more weeks and then try to bargain for some shit.

Key for now, it get it running and driveable and sort out any electrical and mecanical gremlins. Then the bodywork will get sorted which is gonna be a shitshow. Not really sure what I'm gonna do with that. There's a joint in NYC that a lot of friends have been going to for Upholstery work for bikes but the guy primarily does care upholstery so probably have him redo the door cards and the front seats. Headliner and rear seats are mint. Dash has some cracks in the lower edge but fuck it that's a later problem.

Updates to follow. Oh yeah, needs pads and rotors too lol. The list grows longer ughhhhh....

Edit: Almost forgot it already has an equal length longtube header on it now so someone was already on track to futz with it performance wise.
