1966 Volvo 1800S

The Volvo P1800 is Volvo's most famous and popular sports car. Introduced in 1961, the "S" designation was added in 1963 when production moved to Sweden. Later, near the end of the P1800's life, the 1800ES was introduced, a shooting brake/wagon version of the car. A '66 1800S currently holds records for high mileage; it's due to hit 3,000,000 miles in a couple months (Sept. '13).


  1. No such thing as a P1800S. P only applied to the first 2 years - the English-built Jensen bodied cars. The P1800 became the P1800S, P1800E, and finally, the 1800ES shooting brake. The nomenclature on the last is a bit confusing, as Volvo had used S to indicate carbureted engines & E, injected.
