You may find this hard to believe but the car in the following pictures is a Volvo . For those of us who grew up in the Eighties and early Nineties, Volvos have always been synonymous with cars driven by overprotective Baby Boomer parents and with... That model was the P1800. What the new car required, aside from Volvo’s already high safety and In other words, that car was a complete disaster and Volvo wanted to regain some self-respect. First unveiled in 1961, the project actually got underway in 1957 as Volvo began research on how to make a good sports car. But there was a time when a particular model gave the Swedish brand a trendy appeal. Recently, things have changed, with today’s S60 sedan and XC60 crossover evidence of its efforts to focus on styling and packaging.
Designers Jem Marsh and Frank Costin started building rather whacky racing cars in 1959, but arguably their great achievement came in 1964 with the absurdly low, 43-inch tall Marcos GT. Built with a partly plywood chassis and available with the... When it came out at the 1963 Earls Court Motor Show, nothing else quite looked like the new Marcos, and its basic profile remained unchanged when the Marcos became available with a 3. A Marcos of any kind is a rare thing indeed, and this Marcos 3-Litre, located in Vista, California, has to be among the nicest examples on this side of the Atlantic.

S. market because of its compliance with emissions regulations. Fortunately, this Volvo-engined car is not one of them. For some reason, a few of these cars had a Borg Warner...
A: Probably I would take the P1800. It was a rather attractive sports car, and reasonably reliable, though being 40 years old, nothing is really reliable unless it has been well tended to over the years.
On the other hand, the Rambler American was a very nice car as well, resonably powerful, with, as I recall two different engine options, one a 110 hp six and he other about 140 horse. Then too, if you need a back seat, it has one. (answered by anonymourati on December 10, 2007)
A: I have a '66 that I've owned for fourteen years. It is as reliable as any car on the road. The running gear is all the same as the 120 series sedans of the era. Volvo was one of the most reliable cars on the road back then. It's a shame that trend is not continuing.
I drove my 1800 every day for the first two years I had it, then decided to rehab it. That's not done yet but I still drive it two or three times a week. These cars are very simple, easy to work on and maintain. They are fun to drive and will definitely start a conversation. The only drawback is rust. The 1800 body panels are intricately designed and assembled with lots of places for road dirt, leaves and other crap to build up and eventually cause corrosion.
