Nice..!!! I always liked those cars. Keep the pix coming...

Two things I've learned...
1) The Amateur gets excited when things go right,
The Professional gets excited when things go wrong!

2) There comes a point when you realize that you aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.......

Hi Dakota and welcome to the forum. I restored one of these Volvos over 30 years ago, from a complete rusty wreck. IIRC it was the first non-Austin I ever restored.

Some nice features there.

Our local Volvo dealer has a restored one for sale now, asking for 60-70 000 euro

Edit: it is a P1900 for that money, my bad

Welcome back Dirk

I also made some P1800 patch panels a couple of years ago

I love the trunk floor and the wheel well you built!
Any chance you could tell us a little more about how you did it?

This here looks like a combo Pullmax/beadroller What's the story about this piece of equipment?
