Last week I helped my neighbor drop his engine/transmission into his P1800. He was way, way more worried about it than I was, I had to keep reassuring him that for me, "It's just another day at the office". Getting it in with the transmission attached required being nearly vertical, but once it was in and got back to level, it didn't take much to toss a jack under the back of it all and get the engine mounts lined up proper.

When he pulled up a few days ago and asked if I wanted to go for a spin around the block, I just couldn't say no. The P1800 is akin to aircraft in the way it feels like you don't just sit in it, you wear it, the thing wraps around even my 6'2" frame and feels right. The sound of the twin SU carbs and lack of a muffler, with no interior sound deadening, made it even more visceral. Such a cool, unknown little sports coupe.

I keep telling him he needs to build a wheelie prone gasser out of the rotted shell he has in the side yard.



You're P1800 is looking fantastic though! I'm going to have to show the neighbor the progress on it as he's pretty much the only person I've ever met that even knows what these cool little Swedish cars even are.

That sounds awesome dude, so glad to hear another one getting back on the road. My spare shell will be going to another volvo guy I know up in Rochester NY who want to build a Baja style car with what's left.

I'm going to drop the motor in as just the assembled short block and bell housing most likely. Then assemble the head once it's in. That is unless I can get the front end rebuilt in a timely manner and my buddy has his lift free in which case the complete drive train will be mounted to the subrame and then the body dropped down over it.

This is probably the best option so it can all be assembled and installed in one shot. More difficult but overall the best option. Especially if I don't want to fuck with taking the hood off the damn thing right after it's back from body and paint work haha.

Well took a stroll up to the shop now that they've got my car on deck for work. Overall pretty happy about the condition. Floors are all basically Mint as are the inner sills. Already ordered up new rear quarters, back panel, r/f fender and some other bits.

I gotta cut the whole nose off the green donor shell to steal the rad support and inner fender well sections up front that were butchered on my car lol. Luckily the doors are both mint like brand new without a single flaw, lucky break!

But now pics!

Keeping it...probably gonna be 20K into this fucking car when I'm done. Better believe I'm gonna put a few thousand miles on it lol.

Actually just sold my 748R to a buddy of mine. Lost interest in it after I tossed it into the weeds and broke my shit last may. Basically sat in the basement for a year but 8k in my pocket for the volvo is a bonus.

Planning on some long road trips once it's done. Want to take it down to my mom's in Georgia and see my buddy in Charleston. Planning to do some vintage car rallies in to too if I have time.
