Car description

1970 Volvo 1800E

This 1970 Volvo 1800E was acquired by a friend of mine in 1984 and reportedly sat unused for over 20 years before his purchase in 2013.
A subsequent refurbishment was completed in 2017!
Bodywork included welding in replacement panels for the floors, rockers, and door sills. The partial chassis replacement was completed, and the insides of the frame rails were coated with protectant. The car was media blasted, coated with epoxy primer, and repainted in its original California White (42).
A new reverse light housing, front turn signals, and rear light housings were installed. Period 15″ clover wheels were mounted withBFGoodrich Advantage rubber in June 2017.
The reupholstered cabin is trimmed red leather with matching vinyl door panels and black trim. A new white headliner was installed and the carpet, seat webbing and foam, and upholstery were replaced during the refurbishment work.
A 3-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a woodgrain-trimmed dashboard with new padded covers. The 5-digit odometer is believed to have rolled over once and currently shows 10k miles. Total mileage unknown. The interior lighting was upgraded to LEDs.
The fuel-injected 2.0L B20E four was rebuilt in 2017 with a .040″ overbore and new pistons, bearings, cam, lifters, timing gears, valves, springs, guides, seals, and water pump. Replacement underhood components included the starter, alternator, voltage regulator, ignition coil, radiator, heater core and control valve, hoses, clamps, and more. Astainless steel exhaust system was also installed.
The original fuel injection setup was replaced with a MegaSquirt II Stealth system controllable via EFI Analytics TunerStudio software on a tablet PC, which is included in the sale. The fuel system was refreshed with a new tank, pump, filter, pressure regulator, lines, and wiring harnesses. The 4-speed manual transmission received new bearings and is mated to an electrically-actuated Laycock overdrive unit. Therear main seal,clutch, throw-out bearing, and differential bearings werereplaced during the refurbishment.

Suspension bushings were upgraded with polyurethane replacements and new ball joints, control arms, and shocks were installed. An IPD front sway bar was added, and arear sway bar is included separately. New wheel and axle bearings, brake rotors, calipers, and brake lines were installed.
