This 1961 Volvo P1800 was shipped from the Jensen Factory in England on December 4th 1961 and exported to the USA. It still holds the factory Red (color code 70) and matching engine and transmission.
This P1800 was stored in a shop since 1994 in Oregon, very cool find and quite rare. It rolls nicely and the e brake is functional, nothing else has been tested. It does come with a Clean and Clear Title, workshop manuals and some older paperwork.

The interior looks to have been updated so a different type of upholstery in the late 80's, the stock Jensen style rear interior is unique for this model. The Dash boards (top and bottom) are in amazing shape, no cracks. The rare Jensen tachometer with lower 5500rpm gauge is still with the car. The clock, speedometer, oil and gas gauge all look to be stock.

The body on this P1800 does shoes some rust in the rocker panel area, lower rear quarter areas and some in the shorter cross member under the driver seat. Looks to have an older repaint from the later 70's or early 80's. There are a few dings on the body, one on the front main nose and another in the rear.
Currently the front right chrome trim spear is not attached.
These are the stock items it's missing. The front grille and air cowl, front turn signal lenses, radio, stock key, front and rear badging.

I know a lot about these Volvo 1800's. This Jensen will require a full repaint, mechanical rebuilding and a new interior but the value would be between $65-70k for a nice sorted P1800 Jensen model.
