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?
