Bring Home Swedish Royalty’s Past.
The iconic Volvo P1800 has been a classic symbol of elegance and longevity. It is a manifestation of Swedish cleverness and carries an interesting heritage that connects to regal beauty. This 1800S, the abbreviation meaning Sweden, was originally registered on April 21, 1966. Initially, it belonged to His Royal Highness, the Duke of Jämtland Carl Gustaf Folke Hubertus Bernadotte who received this to commemorate his twentieth birthday – and remarkably, you can now own it!
Two years after purchasing his original 1800S, the Crown Prince replaced it with a Mediterranean blue edition featuring a more robust B20 engine. Through out the years, transferal of this particular 1800S remained documented, save for when in either the late seventies or early eighties a new coat of paint was applied. Since 1989, the vehicle has not seen any major changes as confirmed by its current person of ownership.
Through a fortunate twist of fate, the current custodian finally got their hands on this vintage car in 2009 after an extended quest. Keeping its first engine featuring its matching number 2478, the vehicle is authentic. All components including the motor, gearbox, frame and chassis are original along with a established history and careful maintenance, this Volvo 1800S has presumably done just over 17,300 kilometers or approximately 10,750 miles.
The public auction for the car will occur tomorrow on January 4th; it is estimated the auto will command a range between $53,700 and $63,500. This automobile can be situated in Sandared, in Sweden.
