Car description

This is the car that I've wanted ever since I saw one in 1972. I was struck by the mix of functionality and quirky artistic design of this odd little two door wagon. My first car was a 1958, 44 sedan...also very functional and unique. That started my infatuation with the old Volvos and my affection for the layout and design of the B series engines. I went through a series of models until finally, n 2003, was able to treat myself to this 1973 Volvo 1800ES sport wagon.

The time has come for me to pass my great little car on to someone as taken by it as I am. It's in amazing shape... not a trailer queen but pretty close. Everything works and looks great (the clock runs slow). Even the notorious factory Volvo A/C is blowing hard and cold.

I wouldn't hesitate to drive this car cross-country.

Here are some of the recent repairs and improvements that I've made:

Air Conditioning- newly serviced and charged

New Muffler

New Battery

Bumper-ettes newly chromed

Brand new paint. The original Volvo Red #46

Replaced Windshield

The car is in Van Nuys, A. I'm hoping for a local buyer/pick-up. But if you want to take care of shipping I will accommodate.

Serious bidders only. Full payment before shipping the vehicle or before driving it away.

I can guarantee that the above description of the car is accurate. This is a 42 year old automobile. I fully expect it to serve you well for years to come, ut I can't guarantee it. The sale is FINAL so I encourage you to come over and check it out.
