Tempting: ’64 Volvo 1800S
Purchasing an old sports car shouldn’t be about financial appreciation, it should be about enjoyment. Now if you have had any experience driving an 1800S, you also know they aren’t known for being nimble and light on their feet. But they are durable and can be made to be trouble-resistant. Just ask our buddy, Irv Gordon who has over 3 million miles on his. The Frua-like styling of the 1800S has come into its own and valuations are creeping up nicely. Mechanical parts are relatively inexpensive too.What was a bit staid decades ago is very cool today. Today’s eBay find is a perfect example of an early car with its distinctive “bull-horn” front bumper. The seller is honest about it needing restoration but it looks like a good candidate. It appears to have all of the hard to get parts and they also appear to hang correctly on the body. Detailed pictures of the underside would be helpful. There are legions of loyal and active Volvo Club members who would love to look at it for you. But beware, they might just buy it right out from under you. An auction. Click here for the listing.
