eBay watch: Low mileage 1960s Volvo P1800e sports car


When Roger Moore played Simon Templar in The Saint, he drove around in one of these. Now you can drive one too. The Volvo P1800e sports car that is, with this being a pretty special example.

Instantly recognisable to fans of cult '60s TV, these are getting much harder to find. One in this condition, almost impossible I would suspect. It's also got a few interesting unique selling points too.

According to the seller, this 1969 model, which has had three previous owners, was featured on an article (which the owner has) about being a prototype fuel injection model. It was also in a magazine some years later (1994), when the then owner picked it up with 3,600 miles on the clock before undergoing a full renovation. Even now, it's only got 8,070 on the clock and apparently 'still looks good' after that renovation job.


A regular at car shows, it could be going there with you if you win the auction. The price right now is £1,000.
