As far as two-door wagons go, Volvo really knocked it out of the park with the 1800ES. It's a shooting brake version of the achingly pretty P1800 coupe, built with an all-glass tailgate opening and the same stunning lines. This one's for sale. You should definitely buy it.
Fully restored and repainted in glacier blue clearcoat metallic, this 1973 1800ES features a rare manual transmission with factory overdrive, as well as modernized factory A/C and a ton of new trim pieces.
The selling dealership, Driven.co, put together an eight-minute video detailing this 1800ES inside and out, going through the interior, exterior, and engine bay. The man behind the camera emphasizes the car has absolutely zero rust—something P1800s were famous for contracting.
1973 was the final year of 1800ES production, with some notable changes for that year—including slightly different bumpers and dashboard toggle switches.
With an asking price , we're trying to find reasons not to pick it up ourselves. If you end up buying it, please, let us know. We'd love a turn behind the wheel.
