Description

Unique Volvo Sport P1900 convertible! This is Volvo's only fiberglass sports car.
Please read the whole description including conditions below!
Good drivers condition, original B14 engine and 3-speed gearbox (numbers checked with Volvo Heritage). Runs nice and smooth. This is a great, fun ride, nothing like some of the stories on the web might make you believe.
One small ding in the paint at the backside.
Original spare wheel included.
Carpet is original, but protected by covers as after 58 years it is quite worn.
This is chassis number 42 of 68 P1900's made. Originally delivered in Sweden in June, 1956, it has been in a Swiss museum before being imported to the Netherlands 10 years ago. The P1900 is one of the most sought-after Volvo's out there. Its value is only rising! Right now there are 2 other P1900's for sale in Europe, priced around $125.000,- in comparable condition.
This car is extremely hard to find, especially in this fine, driving, condition.
This specific P1900 is driven regularly and well-cared for.Anyone who has had the pleasure to get a ride on this car was surprised by its fun and smooth ride. The quality problems that were reported in manufacturing this car do not reflect in the ride at all.
So, why do I want to sell this wonderful P1900? I don't. However, when buying the P1900 we did not have any children, now we have two, which means we can not go for a spin with the family. I would like to buy a nice classic that will hold all four, and unfortunately I will have to sell the P1900 in order to do that. That's also the reason I am pricing it lower than other P1900's for sale - I do not need to make a profit on it, I just want to buy another classic.
A car of this age is not MOT-required in the Netherlands, however it passed easily when it still was, a couple of years ago.
The following work has been done in recent years:
- Braking system revised 2013
- Carburetors overhauled 2013
- Fuel pump replaced 2013
- Battery and cable replaced 2012
- Starter engine replaced 200
- Of course, new spark plugs
Offer includes a.o.:
- Original workshop manuals: engine and specifications
- Original sales leaflet
- 4 rare P1900 model cars
- Several 50's magazines and articles
Car is located in The Netherlands and is sold on a Pick Up basis.
Comes with full Dutch registration. VIN has been extended from 42 to 190042 by Dutch registration authorities, as it would not fit in their systems otherwise.
Shipping is at buyer's risk and cost.
Test drives are accepted at appointment.
Private auction! This car is sold as is! Exact mileage is unknown as the odometer is not unlikely to have passed the 100.000 mark in its 58 year history.
Winning bidder (either through a bid above reserve price or by clicking Buy It Now) is REQUIRED to pay a $2.000,- deposit through PayPal within three working days after the end of the auction.
