"A nice and professional renovation that’s fitted with an upgraded injection engine and gearbox, it’s a well balance drive with a good performance boost."


This car is originally in a rust free condition and imported from a dry state in the USA. It’s been renovated and built to high standards and cherished by its original well known Volvo enthusiast, with no costs spared. The engine was tuned to match the racing pedigree of the finest competition cars from that era for example rally amazon´s or 140´s. The latest renovation was professionally carried out by the workshop at HRM-bil in Lidköping with no costs spared. The result is the finest P1800 we've seen.
The sound of the intake when the car comes towards you and the engine sings in the higher tones is a bit reminiscent of high-speed race machines from racing's Super Touring era. When that sound also harmonizes with a classically beautiful body shape, it becomes obvious that this car has just extra everything.

Facts about the model

Racing Rascal's event Ba(r)ndagen is one of Sweden's most high-profile car events and without a doubt the biggest event of its kind. During the recurring days when the events take place, some 100 supercar owners fulfill wishful dreams for children who have had a hard time in the start of life. It can be a severe illness, accident, or social problems and more. On this day they and their families are VIP guests at Sweden's best track event and get to ride in any cars they want, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsche, and all the other supercars you can imagine. The recipient of the money is the Lean on Me Foundation, which is closely interwoven with Racing Rascals. In the Foundation's statutes you can read the following: The foundation's purpose is to support, stimulate and improve the quality of life for children and adolescents, who through illness, unhappiness, or social misery have had a hard and unfair start in life. The foundation's purpose will be pursued, among other things, through positive and inspiring experiences, but also through sponsorship, where children and young people receive long-term support from inspiring people who have been in the same position as them, and made their way on. 100% of the Foundation's work will be focused on children and young people in Sweden.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
