1973 Volvo 1800ES for sale! Motorcar Classics is proud to present this stunning 1973 Volvo 1800ES 4-Speed w/Overdrive which is finished in the original colors of Ivory (42) with a tan interior. It is powered by Volvo’s iconic 2.0-liter inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission with electronic overdrive. Specifications include IPD sport springs and sway bars, 15″ factory wheels, factory chrome roof rack, leather tie-down cargo straps, and an aftermarket CD stereo. Since being acquired by its most recent owner in 2019 restoration work has included a repaint as well as refreshment of the suspension and steering, replacement of the rear main seal, a resurfaced flywheel, differential rear seal, tune-up with valve adjustments, and electrical repairs. Additional features include a power antenna, dual side mirrors, factory chrome roof rack, chrome bumpers, and side moldings and upper quarter panel trim. A replacement grille and mirrors were installed while the bumpers were reportedly replaced by a prior owner. Factory 15″ steel wheels wear Volvo center caps and are fitted with 185/70 Vredestein Sprint Classic tires showing 2018 date codes. Braking is handled by disc brakes at all four corners. The suspension was refreshed in January 2020 with replacement shocks, control arms, bushings, tie rods, IPD sport springs and sway bars, and ball joints. The interior is trimmed in Cognac with matching door panels and tan carpets covered with black floor mats. Interior features include woodgrain trim accents, a fold-down rear seat, electric rear window defroster, and a Panasonic CD stereo. The Smiths instrumentation has been replaced or rebuilt recently, including the 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. The six-digit odometer shows 69k miles, though true mileage is unknown. The 1,986cc inline-four features Bosch D-Jetronic electronic fuel injection and was factory rated at 112 horsepower. In recent services, the coolant was flushed, the valves adjusted, replacement coolant and oil temperature sending units installed, oil and transmission fluids changed, and a tune-up performed in late 2020. A replacement battery and heater valve were more recently installed. The clutch was replaced in 2016, the flywheel was resurfaced and a new rear main seal installed during an engine-out service in November 2020, and replacement transmission mount was installed in February 2021. This may be the nicest driving 1800ES we have had the pleasure to offer, and the color combination is among the most flattering for this very desirable model.
