The Volvo rides on factory wheels; four-wheel disc brakes bring the car to a safe stop.

Volvo debuted its front engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car in 1961. Initially named the P1800, Volvo contracted the British firm Jensen to build 10,000 cars. The partnership, however, was short lived, with Jensen having difficulty with quality control. Volvo opted to move production internally in 1963. For 1970 Volvo debuted the 1800E, and the cars now featured a more powerful fuel-injected engine and four-wheel disc brakes.
Initially made famous by the television show The Saint, starring Roger Moore, the Volvo 1800 has developed a cult following. From the beautiful 1960s styling and desirable color combination, to its modern fuel-injected engine and four-wheel-disc brakes, this 1971 Volvo 1800E is an excellent collector vehicle, and arguably one of the most iconic models to hail from Sweden.
