Volvo 1800 ES

Basket case for restoration. A new project during which I hope to build up a more diverse skill set.

Saving a Volvo 1800ES

Lots of vehicles have running repairs over the years to keep them on the road. If taken on by the owner some of those repairs can be excellent, some governed by availability of materials, some governed by money and all governed by whether the owner has the skills or desire to do a good job. The Volvo we are hoping to save is probably one bad repair from the scrapheap. At least 2 former owners have done work on this vehicle however I suspect that this number is actually closer to 5. I have committed to getting this car back to running condition. Probably not concourse but running, structurally sound and useable as a daily driver with original factory colour paint to emphasise the lines the designer created.

I hope to share this learning curve with you.
