eBay watch: 1971 Volvo P1800 E


Fans of 1960s cult TV might recognise the caar above – Roger Moore's incarnation of The Saint drove round in a Volvo P1800 – and you can too for just over £4,000.

The model up for auction on eBay is a slightly later model, a 1971 P1800 E, but it looks every bit the part and most importantly, it's been well looked after. According to the sales blurb, the car has been 'regularly serviced and has had a lot of money spent on it' – although there are a list of improvements you should be aware of before you bid on the site.

In terms of specifics, the two-door P1800 E has a 2-litre, ful-injected engine, a manual 4 speed gear box withorking electronic overdrive (5th gear), full stainless steel exhaust, solid paint work and a fully-operational dash. Tax-exempt of course. The bidding is currently at £4,100, which is a very tempting price. See the site for many more images.
