1970 Volvo P1800E Lands on Craigslist

Volvo Banner Ad VOP

This gorgeous Volvo P1800E makes two great classic Volvo cars showing up in my local Craigslist feed in two days! That must be some kind of sign, right? Must be- especially considering that this tastefully modified Volvo comes with super-supportive Recaro sport seats and a wood-rimmed Nardi steering wheel.

Take a look at the listing, below, which includes the text from the seller’s original listing in case it disappears from the internet tomorrow. Once you’ve done that, let me know what you think of the seller’s prediction that these cars will soon be fetching $100,000 plus at auction and his subsequent pricing of the car in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Better, yet- let me know if you buy it!

    1970 Volvo 1800E – $25000 (Schaumburg)

    For Sale is a gorgeous and highly collectible 1970 Volvo 1800E. It has beautiful and flawless dark blue paint, strong Fuel Injected B20 engine, 4 speed with overdrive, Recaro seats, IPD header, sport exhaust system, Nardi wood steering wheel and Superlite wheels. Prices on these rare Volvos are going up – they only made the 1800s until 1973. Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars is predicting “$100,000 could soon be the norm” (from Forbes). A 1969 1800 sold for $74.8K at a Bonhams auction in Arizona a few months ago. This car is priced at a very realistic $25K.
