Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver welcomes this 1968 VOLVO P1800 S! The Volvo P1800 is a 2+2, front-engine, rear-drive sports car manufactured and marketed by Volvo Cars between 1961 and 1973. Originally a coupe (1961-1972), it was altered into a shooting-brake for the duration of its production (1972-1973).[4][5][6] Styling was by Pelle Petterson under the tutelage of Pietro Frua when Frua's studio was a subsidiary of the prestigious Italian carrozzeria Ghia,[7] and mechanicals derived from Volvo's dependable Amazon/122 series. Marketed as a stylish touring car rather than a sports car,[8] the P1800 became widely known when driven by future James Bond actor Roger Moore in the hit television series The Saint which aired from 1962-1969. In 1998, an 1800S owned by Irv Gordon (1940-2018) was certified as the highest mileage private vehicle driven by the original owner in non-commercial service - having exceeded three million miles (over 4.8 million km) as of 2013.[9] In 1966 the four-cylinder engine was updated to 115 bhp (86 kW). Top speed was 175 km/h (109 mph). The Volvo P1800 received prominence in the early '60s when a white 1962 Volvo P1800 with number plate ST1 was driven by the character Simon Templar (Roger Moore) in the hit TV series The Saint (1962-69). When asked to name his favorite "movie car" many years later, Moore said it was the Volvo P1800, commenting: "I have a great affection for the Volvo P1800, as, of course, I owned one, as well as used one in the series. It's a beautiful car and I still drive a Volvo to this day (Source WIKIPEDIA) Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of history in our Denver Showroom.
